The Hockley Heritage

Our golf course overlays an ancient landscape where the physical evidence of human occupation of the land, for over 4,000 years, can still be clearly seen.  Hockley was covered in forest until the Bronze Age (2,000 BC) when the nomadic hunter gatherer people began to settle the landscape with modest cultivation. The first major settlement of Winchester occurred in the fields to the right of the 15th through to the 18th holes and almost certainly the Bronze Age Village covered parts of these fairways.
