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.

Beautiful November day; course in good condition but cloggy for trolley and ball flight restricted by the low temperature.
Missed too many putts! Again!

My Favourite Course

Just an amazing course, so well kept and greens were first class.
We were in a works golf day with 24 players, and so well looked after. The only problem being a group of impatient members behind firing shots up between us!

USA substitute

Played both courses and they were in great condition.
The Downs is the harder of the two but don?t think the park is a soft touch, it can bite you at anytime.

Sloooooow….

Great venue. Positives were the fables and the fantastic condition of fairways and tee boxes. Greens however although in good conditions were very slow. Pace of play was bad 5:15 hours off a weekday midday tee is far too slow. We kept up with pace of play as a 4 ball in buggies but a marshal told us to let a two ball behind us through on the 7th (I think) and he would “get them through the 4 balls in front”. Well, he didn’t, we then sat behind the 2 ball for the remainder of the round, pointless. By the 17th, there was a group on the green, the 2 ball on the tee us and then two further groups all queuing to play the hole, sadly, took the gloss off an otherwise great day out.

Great downland course

What a superb golf course. We played early morning after heavy rain the evening before and the course drainage is top class, as there was no evidence of water anywhere. Goodwood do everything in style, including their amazing buggies. Highly recommended.

Only 16 holes are currently open

The course has taken the 9th & 10th holes out of action because of a motoring show at Goodwood. So you can only play a round of 16. We were disappointed by this as our golf holiday was booked several months in advance but nobody let us know we were not getting the full round until we turned up. Golfers are obviously a lower priority for Goodwood than motoring enthusiasts.

I was lucky enough to play the Championship Downs course today.
As people have said it's tough, but very impressive.
I used a GPS wood buggy and I'm glad I did, it was a very hot day.
The pace of play was good, the holes were challenging.
The snack bar is passed twice on the round which is great.
The views at times are fantastic.
A lovely day out and experience as you would expect.
