    New Forest is a great track and generally will be easier to get to from anywhere in the country than Glasson.

    Glasson has recently been purchased so they may make a few changes.

    Tough choice, can’t go wrong with either of them, try getting a quote off both anD that might help you decide...Glasson is however the easier and more scenic of the two

    Member in Glasson, new owners have brought in a Director of Golf and can already see improvements on the course. Hoping it will be in great condition next year after she gets a spring\summer under her belt.

    New Forest is a lovely course, you won't go wrong with either of them.

    Have stayed and played in Glasson a number of times with a Society. We seem to get a good deal for the hotel stay and green fees. Decent track - not too difficult.
    You have the option of heading into the village for the pubs and not too far to travel into Athlone if you are looking for more adventurous nightlife.

    Curious to know what improvements your director of golf brought in that you can see improvements on the course ?

    Unless they are good golfers, go with Glasson. Rough is very tough and punishing in New Forest.

    Both lovely courses but Glasson would get my pick. You won't get a deal on green fees is the only problem.

    I’m also a member there. The new owners, The Press up Group are only in place since October but there’s more emphasis on course maintenance. Greens are in good nick for the time of year and bunkers are getting attention that was lacking.

    There’s also more emphasis on members, with coaching nights and kids classes.

    It’s early days, but a good start.
