The Isle of Wight is firmly cemented as one of the United Kingdom's premier holiday destinations. Sitting pretty a short way off the south coast, the sunny island promises idyllic beaches, rolling hilltops and sleepy villages. While the Isle of Wight offers something for everyone, the combination of coastal vistas and rolling hills is sure to prick the ears of keen golfers. Browns Golf Course ensures their prayers aren't falling on deaf ears. With plenty of exquisite hotels and guesthouses nearby, Browns Golf Course is an ideal location for visitors.
Browns Golf Course
Situated in the picturesque bay of Sandown, Browns Golf Course is as pretty as it gets. The course was designed back in 1932 by professional golfers, Joe Kirkwood and Henry Cotton. In addition to a nine-hole pitch and put, the club also offers a 15-hole long putting course and an 18-hole shorter putting course. With so much on offer, there's something to suit golfers of all abilities.
Golf clubs aren't always welcoming places for families, but Browns makes an exception. The family run clubhouse features an indoor play area, and an impressive café which serves homemade food under its unique glass roof. The clubhouse makes for a relaxing place to while away the island's warm summer afternoons.
