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..

Good condition for time of the year

Frosty morning - temperature still below freezing on our 9.30 start. Fairways frozen for first 3 or 4 holes so drives rolled like July but greens frosted and inevitably bumpy. The ground softened as the round progressed and was in reasonable nick for February. Temporary tees on all holes but no temporary greens. Overall the course is in as good condition as any we have played in the last two months and we are re-booked for next week.

Good South Downs Course

Very friendly club house. Winter mats are small on all tees. Course drains well being on the downs. Greens need some work. Challenging course in the sea breeze. Long rough can be a challenge. 16th and 17th holes run along the side of a road with no netting or barrier can be a little of putting!

Good for this time of year

Considering we played on the last day of November, the course was in good condition - no mud or lying water. Bunkers dry and greens whilst not the best, still in good condition compared to some other courses played recently. No grass tees in use, only mats. Clubhouse a bit dowdy but quite acceptable. Good value for money.

Course in very good condition for November

Damp and windy day but fairways and greens in excellent condition - some temporary tees.
Greens copper sulphated but running very true - 7 single putts in the round.
Hollingbury is our default winter course because it drains so well and usually very playable when other courses are muddy, or closed.

Good course to use every club in the bag

First played here in 2015, course still provides the same challenges and rewards, the wind can play a massive part in your round here as it is up on the downs (woolen hat recommended at this time of year).

Greens in cracking condition

We are a nomadic foursome and play many courses throughout East and West several times a year - Hollingbury is in as good a condition as we have found it for some time and certainly as good if not better than other courses in Sussex that charge double the £17 price - recommended

Being a downland course it will feature regularly for our foursome in the coming winter
