The work we’re doing at Cams Hall is on a course originally designed by Clive Clark and Peter Alliss, so it possesses their distinctive design features, notably large greens, lakes and sprawling bunkers which, in the 1990s, was very fashionable, but in 2023 are expensive to maintain.

The course at Cams Hall is located on the banks of the River Wallington, as it flows out to Portsmouth Harbour and it has a definite ‘linksland’ feel, with an open and exposed aspect with attractive fragmented views of the water.

The new well-positioned bunkers will help to transform the playing strategy, making it necessary to think your way around the course to score well, rather than automatically pulling the driver out of the bag. In particular, the par threes have been improved with a refinement of the bunker positions to make them more aesthetically appealing and more memorable to play. All work is being undertaken by Greasley’s – Phase 1 was completed in April 2023 and Phase 2 starts on site in November 2023.
