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.

Definitely well worth a visit

The course is in good condition, tees have seed boxes to fill in divot holes, greens are excellent. It can be a challenging course as numerous fairways slope to the right so a straight drive may not finish where you thought it would. All adds to the fun of the game to keep you on your toes.

Great Course

Great course quite open so it’s forgiving to high handicappers. Course was in excellent condition, the staff were friendly and the food was of a good standard too.

Nice Club

Course in great condition. Few blind shots, so would like to play again. If I had not played with a member I could well have got lost. a few signs would help.
Nice little clubhouse with good bacon sarnies

Beautiful course on the south downs

This course is a beautiful parkland course built into some of the most beautiful countryside in the whole of Sussex. A relatively short course but it doesn't feel like it as the course meanders up and down parts of the south downs national park. Wide forgiving fairways make this a great course for the mid to high handicapper but some challenging risk/reward shots on some holes for low handicappers. The views around the course are fantastic, but the view from the 16th tee is a breathtaking panoramic view of the Sussex Coast, which is just reward for the climb up the 15th fairway. Everything is finished of nicely at the 19th hole with friendly staff a good selection of drinks and some great food (with generous portions). I hope all of you that visit enjoy it as much as I do.

For time of year definitely worth a visit.

Early morning starting 0600, a frost on grass making things a little tricky. Fairways grass is a bit long (like semi rough in places. Very few Winter tees in use, no Winter greens after drainagework in late Summer. Course in pretty good condition considering recent weather conditions. Pity so many people do not replace divots or repair their pitch marks. Earlier this morning must have been a scoundrel on a Quad bike as tyre marks on fairways, greens and through some of the bunkers. Expect they have nothing better to do but try to disrupt the golf course. I feel sorry for them if that is their idea of fun!!!!

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.
