Osborne Golf Club

Osborne Golf Club was a golfing legacy left by Queen Victoria, Empress of India. The 9 hole parkland course is situated in the estate of Osborne House. The course originated in 1892 as a 2 hole course exclusively for the Royal Household. The current course was built in 1904.

The course is 6,358 yards off the white tees with a SSS and a par of 70 and is the longest course on the Island. Although the course is 9 holes, we have separate tees on 4 holes thus providing a different challenge for some of the back 9 holes!

The course also benefits from having nine totally separate alternative greens for use when maintenance or inclement weather determines protecting the main greens. This feature ensures the course remains open during the most testing of conditions.  

A feature unique to a British golf course is Osborne's elephant pit positioned adjacent to the 7th green. Local folklore states that Queen Victoria, who had received elephants from the Indian Government, had the elephants bathed in this pit.

Panoramic views from the 8th fairway of the Solent and mainland towns of Portsmouth, Gosport and Lee-on-Solent are stunning. Cruise ships, ferries and sailing boats provide a superb backdrop to the course.  

The Isle of Wight is one of only a few places in Britain where the red squirrel survives. The club emblem is the Red Squirrel, and they can often be seen feeding in the trees adjacent to the clubhouse.
