What the club says: The course at Cowdray Park is set amongst the beautiful South Downs and forms part of The Viscount Cowdray's 16,000 acres estate. Overlooking the ruins of the old Cowdray House, golf was first played here in 1904 and the course has now matured into what is without doubt one of the most beautiful tracks in the south east. Measuring 6,212 yards, the par 70 layout boasts the very latest in fairway irrigation and sprinkler systems and together with its sandy soil, is able to maintain its superb condition throughout the whole year.

Beautiful Condition

Not the cheapest but grab a twilight deal and you won't feel so bad.
The course as you would expect in August on a hot day, was flawless. Stunning,
Both the Par5's were in the front 9 and I enjoyed them.

Lovely course

Always enjoy playing Cowdary golf course. Some of the greens have lots of bumps, slopes and tricky to read. Course in great condition and would play here again

Very good course, lots of slopes. Maybe a bit on the expensive side for most, so not the best value for money but very good greens.

Challenging course with beautiful views

A beautiful place to spend a few hours. We found it fairly challenging with length, undulations and well placed bunkers being it's main defense. The clubhouse is also a great place to spend time. Decent practice facilities as well.

Fantastic course and hospitallity

I played here for the first time in November with H2KGS, a well established society. We have had an enormous amount of rain over the last 6 weeks and the week before I was on a course in mud that really shouldn't have been open. Cowdray was in very good condition from T, fairway bunkers through to greens. Can't wait to go back. I would recommend to anyone.

Played on 1st October in a group of 9 so three x 3 balls. The course was in excellent condition despite a huge rainstorm before we teed off - so the course definitely drains well. The tees, fairways and greens were generally in first class order and are clearly well maintained. In some respects the course is challenging but it is also forgiving. There are well planned hazards and many of the holes offer angled fairways so you need to drive off with care! We were lucky to have clear weather following the storm and were blessed with some wonderful views across the downs and surrounding countryside. Regarding the off-course facilities, the club is well appointed and we were welcomed with enthusiasm by the pro-shop staff - we rented two buggies and they were good quality. Our one criticism would be that the speed of service in the upstairs bar/restaurant was poor and if felt as if the kitchen/bar was understaffed even though there were not many customers in the club-house at that time - to be fair, we were told that there was some sort of an official inspection going on so the slow service may have been a temporary blip. To summarise, all of our group were impressed and had an enjoyable day - we will definitely return.

My home course is looking great at this time of the year. They have repaired the sprinkler system which was damaged a few years ago which will help maintain the course during the year. The greens are very challenging but in great nick and we have a few new t boxes open.

Very strange. Played here numerous times in the past and loved it. What’s happened. They still have the winter markers out around the greens and looks like a mud bath, the greens really poor and bobbling around all over the place. I’m sure it will recover to it’s normal amazing condition but some way away yet.

Organised another society event after having a great day last year and we weren’t disappointed. The facilities are excellent and we were made to feel extremely welcome by every member of staff we came into contact with. The delicious buffet breakfast was a big reason we came back and was just as good as before and was the perfect start to the day.
The course was in beautiful condition. There was some work being done to the sprinkler system on all fairways but we were warned about this ahead of the day and it was simply a case of having a free drop for GUR if your ball ended up in these areas. The greens were fantastic and very fast. I didn’t struggle getting players for this one and it was obvious why. I’m sure we’ll take even more next year. Can’t recommend Cowdray enough. Great staff, great views, great course and superb value for money in my opinion.
