About Sherfield Oaks

Fore King Golf Tour at Sherfield Oaks Golf Club The Waterloo Course

Located in some beautiful Hampshire countryside, Sherfield Oaks Golf Club is a modern facility that prides itself on quality and service.

From the moment visiting golfers arrive until the time of their departure, the visit is a memorable one.

There are two golf courses to choose from at Sherfield Oaks and the 6,412 yard, par 72 Wellington Course is the longer of the two and winds its way through ancient woodland and landscaped parkland

First class practice facilities include a practice area, short game area and putting green there is also an inviting bar and restaurant with fantastic cuisine and a friendly atmosphere.

Steve King, the founder of Fore King Golf, started playing golf at the tender age of 29, after years spent playing many other sports and getting dodgy knees. Although late to the game, Steve soon fell in love with the sport and found himself, like many others, addicted to the pursuit of improvement and playing better. He is currently a member of The Kendleshire Golf Club & Hercules Golf Society, as well as running several competitions for Fore King Golf
