Play Golf on Hampshire’s Oldest Course


For those wishing to play golf in the New Forest, The Bell Inn isn’t just convenient for the two nearest award-winning golf courses – we own them! Within the grounds of The Bell Inn, you’ll find Bramshaw Golf Club – home to not just one, but two, diverse 18-hole courses and widely recognised as a leader in the Hampshire area in providing a high-quality golf experience for visitors and societies.

The two 18-hole golf courses couldn’t be more different. For manicured greens and excellent fairways, The Manor Course offers the traditional golfing experience within a mature parkland setting and is, itself, a challenging course. In complete contrast and for a tougher test of skill, The Forest Course is quite literally ‘golf as it should be’ and is the oldest golf course in Hampshire. Dating back to the late 1800’s the course stretches across the undulating heathland of the National Park offering golf holes of great interest through the trees and somewhat adding to its unique appeal – is shared with the wildlife and livestock that roam freely throughout the forest.

With two courses to play and lots of other things to see and do in the area, an overnight stay is all but essential for the visiting golfer, with The Bell Inn providing the perfect place in which to hole up between rounds.

Winter Packages

While golf isn't just a summer game, we all know that the lack of daylight means less opportunity to play golf during the winter months. Our winter golf breaks at The Bell Inn mean you can stay and play (weather permitting) or just enjoy some downtime exploring the New Forest National Park.
