What the club says: Hollingbury Park Golf Course was originally designed in 1907 and remodelled in 1936.

Hollingbury Park Golf Course is an established 18-hole, par 72 layout that in previous years has been a qualifying venue for the greatest golf tournament of them all – The Open. The rolling downland course has a stunning panoramic vista over the City of Brighton & Hove and the English Channel.

Great round

Finished in 3h7m which was pretty quick, course in good condition, rather dry. Ball ran forever.

Shame the bar closes at 17:00, and the Pro Shop doesn't sell drinks or snacks.

Traditional South Downs Course

Great test of golf on a traditional downland course. Stunning views from most holes. A lot of effort is being put into this course from new owners post lockdown(Very noticeable work on good greens and surrounds bearing fruit having been left rundown) A little walked on by locals not sticking to paths but should improve as more regular golf traffic plays. Glad to have put this on my golf CV.

New owners

New owners just taken over the course. There were at least 4-6 greens in very poor condition . Lots of people walking about the course - having picnics, dog walkers etc.

One of the few course that are completely playable after the wet winte

Apart from 2 greens, the 5th and 16th, the course was fully opened and no real sign of the rain that had fallen. Mainly due to Chalky ground which drains exceptionally well. Considering the course was under threat of closure , together with Waterhall (which is now closed for good 31/3/20), the course was being well maintained. Greens were a little long but that is not a surprise considering the winter conditions. As long as it stays open this will be the obvious course to play if other courses are waterlogged.

Greens in good nick

Damp dank day - we were warned the greens had been sanded but they played remarkably well under the circumstances.
The course is in good condition throughout and we were off temporary tees.

Some nice views out to sea, not the most interesting layout and the bunkers could be better maintained.

In good condition, last couple of greens a bit to fluffy. Have to be straight because you won’t find your ball in the long rough off the fairway otherwise

A Good walk

Great views and some great driving holes, but very hilly as you would expect for a downland course. Friendly staff in clubhouse.

Not bad for a popular course sandwiched between three communities, Hollingbury has had its fair share of locals vandalising the greens but there was no evidence of that on this particular day, all in all not bad..
