Golf Courses at The Bell Inn

Forest Course

Bramshaw's Forest Course is the oldest in Hampshire, having been constructed on common land in 1865. The idyllic landscape dictates the style of the course, which encompasses numerous humps, hollows and meandering streams. The heathland of the New Forest make the course relatively open, but the small targets and tight fairways ensure that this a considerable test.

For anyone who's played common land golf, the Forest Course is golf in its purest form. While ponies and cattle graze on the heath, golfers are eased in to their round on a tricky front nine which is followed up by a trio of testing long par fours on the homeward stretch. Although the course appears short on the card, three of the five par-threes measure over 200 yards and pinpoint accuracy is required to negotiate the many streams and small greens.

Manor Course

The Manor Course, opened in 1970, has added considerably to Bramshaw Golf Club, and is entirely different in style to its neighbour; the Manor is carved into the mature woodland of a 200 year-old hardwood plantation, and as a result accurate driving is the most valuable asset. The gently undulating fairways lead to some of the best putting surfaces in the South.

This array of options makes the Bell Inn an extremely interesting option for your next golf break in the South.


Accommodation at The Bell Inn

The historic Bell Inn dates back to 1782, and offers visitors a superb standard of accommodation, featuring the requisite modern amenities whilst retaining the quintessential charm and character of the traditional inn. Situated in the heart of the New Forest National Park, there is a tranquil atmosphere throughout, but the Bell Inn is also easily reached via the motorway network. The 25 en-suite guest bedrooms are fitted with luxury extras like flat screen televisions and wireless internet connectivity, while the welcoming public areas serve to intensify the intimate atmosphere of your golf break at the Bell Inn.

Having been awarded an AA Rosette for fine dining for 14 consecutive years, it is clear how good Briscoe's restaurant at the Bell Inn is.

The Bell Inn has been a popular free house for over two centuries, and serves a fine range of quality ale and West Country cider.

Private dining is available on request, while guests can also eat al fresco in the summer months, weather permitting.

This is a great place to stay and not just for the golf, our room was a good size for 2 guys at over 6'. The staff were very friendly and helpful there was never any waiting for service. but the big winner for both of us was the restaurant and food (albeit a pricey) both dinner and breakfast

An excellent course...

Our golf break, staying in the Bell Inn was a great success.

We were greeted by very friendly staff and members, as well as some excellent weather. The accommodation was excellent with good food but we will probably order from the menu next time rather than take the golfer's menu. 

We decided to play the Forest Course twice as the tee time for the Tuesday was a bit of a wait. This is an excellent course though, with the added hazard of New Forest ponies and cows! As the oldest course in Hampshire it certainly felt like how golfing used to be and none the worse for it. Scoring 42 points on the first round I was certainly happy!

The Manor Course was quite busy with competitions but we will be happy to return and book tee times that allow us to take in both courses next time.

A great couple of days.

Forest Course (The Bell Inn)

This course was a weird experience but great fun, you have a tee and a green (both in really good con.)and the natural heathland in between including ponies and cows. Definitely worth a visit for a new golf experience.

Complete opposite to the Manor course experience. Different member of staff allowed us to play ahead of a large society. We sped round and thoroughly enjoyed the round.
