What the club says: Hill Barn Golf Club was designed by the legendary Fred Hawtree, and has a long and enviable history having been established since 1935. The course nestles in the rolling hills of the Southdowns, providing sweeping views of the town of Worthing and of the English Channel to the south. The 6,229 yard course provides challenges and surprises for players of all levels as it undulates through a good balance of par 3s and par 4s of which no two are alike.

A real gem

My playing partner has played it and enjoyed it for years so knows it like the back of is hand and totally undersold it to me. He warned it is a bit short (6000) and you don;t really need driver. I expected a pitch and putt and couldn;t be further from the truth. I loved it. The views are incredible out to sea and over Worthing. Some really cool tee shots and some nice quirky holes with 2 driveable par 4s. And the par 3 11th is so intimidating!! I'd play again for sure. Especially after shooting +10 Only down side was getting caught behind a Ladies comp but it gave more time to soak up the sun and the views!

Beautiful course, hard round!

Hill barn is in great shape, really well kept. Haven?t played here for a few years and it?s been made a lot more challenging since then. Twilight round for ?18 is great value for money.

Portsmouth

What a great course, plenty of challenges , some nice doglegs and plenty of long grass to avoid. The greens are very good and the ball travels well when hit straight , no two holes are the same and it keeps you thinking as you make your way over all the hills and troughs. Would recommend .

Very good, worth a visit

Course is in very good condition, try to keep to fairways as the deep rough is just that, very very deep, in fact near waist height. Put a ball in there and a waste of time looking for it unless you took a scythe!!!!!!!!!

Great course with stunning views

Course in great condition. Situated on the south downs giving the course some lovely changes in elevation. Once you make it up the aptly named 'Cardiac hill' to the 15th green and turn round there is the most amazing view, firstly of almost the entire course and secondly of the vast majority of the Sussex coastline, a real pleasure to see on a sunny day. Would thoroughly recommend this course for anyone visiting the area.

The Par 3 11th is amazing

Excellent downland course which takes full advantage of the natural contours of the land to vary and prevailing weather. The course has improved over the last 10 years and is very welcoming. Excellent and well priced food choice and plays all year round

Due conditions in playable condition. Well done Andy and team.

A few winter tees and temporary greens with some standing water but, on the hole, is playable. Today’s breeze starting to dry it out a bit.
