68th Best inEngland

A very good course in excellent condition, worth a visit. Right on the top of the downs, the views are wonderful. Everyone very friendly.

Great course - did not do it justice

Greens good but not great. Tee boxes excellent. Course layout, excellent. Just wished I wasn't struggling off the tee. Would have been a much more pleasant experience

Would I Play Again? Most Definitely!

There's a lot of history here, well detailed on the club website. It's also worth looking at the descriptions of each hole to make the most of playing this course.
Beautiful views of the South Downs from the elevated first tee invite a long drive to a wide fairway, but there are some long, sometimes intimidating carries over heather and deep ravines to come later.... this course may not suit the higher handicap player.
Good variety of holes with different challenges, all of which are memorable after just my first visit. Nice 'springy' heathland fairways, greens rolling true, well maintained bunkers.... generally the standards you would expect to find at a top 100 course. A few dogleg holes where driver is not always the best choice from the tee.... I know now for next time!
I live 70 miles away, so it won't be a regular for me, but I will look forward to returning to play here again.

A good challenge, plenty of heather to catch you out and quite hilly in places.

Drove 70 miles to play this course and wouldn't hesitate to do so again. Very friendly, course in good condition considering it was covered with snow 7 days earlier. Beautiful views.

Lovely Heathery course

Shame about the weather and especially the rain. Some great views of the South Downs from the Highest Golf Course in Sussex. As mentioned very wet under foot and last couple of greens underwater. Condition though not bad , greens very playable. Some tees need a bit of work. What can I say apart from would play here again...in better conditions.

This was an evening game, for a twilight price. The course is a good layout with lots of up and down holes. The holes are tight with trees waiting to catch errant tee shots. The tees need a bit of water as they look a bit tired. The fairways are in good condition (they are difficult to stay on), the greens rolled well, but looked poor.This is a course where accuracy is more important than distance, I would hit a lot of three woods off the tees. There were a couple of blind tee shots with no obvious marker post.

Great old school course through some amazing countryside. A proper test of gold with plenty of elevation charges and many undulating fairways. The lunch is highly recommended

an old fashioned club, small club house with balcony over looking the 18th green. pro shop adequate. yardage books three quid.facilities a putting green and three nets. there is a field to hit balls but you need to bring your own.so nowhere to realy warm up. course was interesting and in very good condition greens were fast and tricky. rough was very thick would recommend you play provisional every time you go in there. lots of hills would recommend a trolley or buggie unless your young and fit.
