What we say
Set in 250 acres of downland overlooking Winchester, this James Braid design is perfect for a winter round due to the free-draining chalk ground which ensures bounce and run all-year round. The wind is a major factor on every hole, especially after you have ascended through the first four holes set in a deep valley. Long dogleg and uphill par-4s contribute the strongest holes, although the four one shotters also offer stern tests.
Hockley is a James Braid designed course set on 250 acres of historical chalk downland overlooking Winchester the ancient capital of Wessex.
The course is set on chalk and as a result is very free draining - particularly in the winter time - in all but the very worst of conditions.
The basic layout is downland, and after a gradual climb up the valley to the 5th hole, the course is set - more or less - at a consistent level. There is one further slight climb up from the 13th tee - but you are rewarded from the 14th fairway with magnificent views away to the south - and in the very best of conditions you can see the Isle of Wight in the far distance.
The course stands at 6420 yards in length with a standard scratch of 72 (white tees) and offers an enjoyable challenge for golfers of a modest ability and better.
