What the club says: The Goodwood Park layout was designed in 1987 by renowned golf architect Donald Steele and lies within the parkland surrounding Goodwood House. Indeed the 6,650 par 72 course has been carefully designed to blend in with the splendid surroundings of the Estate.
The Downs Course was laid out in 1914 by legendary golf architect, designer of Gleneagles and Carnoustie and five times winner of the Masters Championship, James Braid, The Downs Course features tricky doglegs and long sweeping greens which are both a treat and a challenge to true golf fans. The Downs was cleverly renovated in 2006 to retain the essential character of Braid’s concept while providing a challenge for the modern game for both amateurs and professionals alike.

James Braid downland classic

I?ve always really enjoyed playing the Downs course. Outstanding views of West Sussex and Hampshire. There are some fabulous holes up on the chalk hills, one being the 2nd. A straight tee shot up the fairway towards a blind green sets you up for a great second shot. The green sits down in the bottom of a valley protected by some cleverly placed bunkers. Great fun. The clubhouse is stunning. An old flint building and the facilities inside are excellent. The playing conditions were very good indeed considering the damage that was caused by the summer drought. Already looking forward to returning.

Great course with magnificent views

One of the best course in Southern England , the Downs course is extreamley hilly and can be expose to the weather which makes it even more challenging , magnificent views of Chichester and the coast . The lower your handicap the more you will enjoy this course .

Lovely course setting

I love the occasional break at this wonderful hotel, and thoroughly enjoy a round on this beautiful course as a warm up to tackling the Downs course the following day!

A beautiful setting

A really lovely course, you have to think your way around. Some lovely views from the top of the hill. My only negative would be the long walks between a few of the holes. I would definitely play there again given th3 chance.
