Fabulous old course without any bunkers but plenty of heather and varied terrain.

Simply stunning views and plenty of challenging holes. Don't be put off by the Royal - very welcoming indeed and if you play the West as well its one of the best 36 holes anywhere.

Easy to see why this is in the top 30 courses in England

Our society played Royal Ashdown old course on 17th September. Magnificent condition and a very fair test but stay out of the Heather. Hit it straight and be brave. Equally impressive was the welcome and attention from all the staff. As we neared the end, our last group were tired and offered to waive through a member two ball who politely refused. In the clubhouse we apologised to them and they said they wanted to make it a great experience for visitors so they would come back! How refreshing. A top venue and a top drawer experience. I can't recommend more highly.

Magnificent

I played this course as part of the Sussex Heathland tour as well as Crowborough and Piltdown. The best of all three with no doubt with Crowborough a close second and Piltdown a lowly third. Course was well presented and a true challenge.

Excellent course

First time at Royal Ashdown Forest on a very hot afternoon. Really interesting course with lots of contours, bumps and slopes. Dry fairways with plenty of run and tricky greens that are difficult to hold to. But course is not too long and no bunkers. 2nd nine significantly harder than front. Enjoyable round will be back.

Beauty and Beast

Beautiful course set in some picturesque forest scenery, stick to the fairways and you have a chance, venture off and the rough can be brutal. Will definitely play again

Great course - well worth a visit!

Really enjoyable round. Tough course - up and down, heather, difficult rough in places, blind shots etc. Great challenge though and beautiful location

"No other club like it"

Recently visited the Royal Ashdown Golf Course, playing both the Old Course and the West Course(part of their sister club the Ashdown West). Both courses were in superb condition, with greens and fairways very well maintained, resulting in two pleasurable yet challenging (due to the nature of the course) rounds of golf. I can confirm that the notorious Old Course certainly lived up to it status as being ranked #31 in the Top 100 UK Courses, with the West Course certainly acting as strong competition.

Clubhouse and Pro shop staff were very friendly and went above and beyond to make sure that our whole experience was enjoyable. With such a wide diverse range of food options on their bar menu it made choosing very difficult! However, when myself and my guests finally decided we were blown away with how good the food tasted, especially for the extremely reasonable prices they were charging!

A splendid golfing experience, with great courses, fantastic food and outstanding customer service, will be recommending this club to every golfer I know. Looking forward to my next visit, which was booked shortly after I left!

Wonderful golf course with some of the best holes of golf in Sussex.
We had a few heavy showers that disrupted the round and the course held up ever so well.
