Summary:

Barton-on-sea Golf Club, founded in 1897, is situated on the cliffs between Highcliffe and Milford-on-sea.
The club has an elegant and imposing clubhouse which, because of its clifftop position, offers spectacular views across the Soent to the Needles on the Isle of Wight.
The current 27 holes are a combination of the original Harry Colt design from 1932 and the newer holes designed by J Hamilton Stutt completed in 1992.
The three loops of nine holes each start and finish at the clubhouse.
The Becton loop, nameed after the Becton Bunny stream which meanders through 3 of the 9 holes, is a parkland type loop which incorporates several of teh original Harry Colt designed holes.
The Needles loop, created in 1992, takes the player to the very edge of the cliff with spectacular views. This loop presents a typical cliff top challenge of gorse and natural grasses in a windswept position.
The Stroller, named after the famous Oylmpic show junping horse, is the inner loop of 9 holes. It is slightly more protected than the Needles and offers a great mixture of golf holes from semi-parkland to the windswept clifftop.
Visitors and society groups are always welcome at Barton-on-sea golf club.

This club, founded in 1897, is situated on the Dorset coastal cliff between Christchurch and Lymington. The current 27 holes are a combination of the original Harry Colt design from 1932 and newer holes which were completed in 1992. There are 3 9hole loops each of which start and finish close to the clubhouse. Many forms of golfing challenge await the player from the shot over the water to the island green on Needles 9, to links style bump and run shots to the greens close to the coastline. Sea breezes and great views also add to an enjoyable test of golf. The clubhouse is lovely, commanding superb views across the Solent to the Needles on the Isle of Wight, and along to Old Harry Rocks at Swanage. It is also situated overlooking the island green referred to above which can prove to be very entertaining! Standard green fee for the day is £44 (good value for 27 holes) but the twilight rate of £24 is a bargain. Open events are also available - well run and sociable.
