Royal Ashdown West Course

What a shocker! Probably the worst condition golf course I’ve ever played in 35 years of playing the game.
Such a poor reflection on the Club and the Royal Ashdown Old course.

Could be good but...

Promised so much but course did not cope well with the rain. Greens were mainly awful, very patchy and difficult to putt on. Such a shame. Clubhouse staff were very good though. Would like to play again but would need assurances about the condition of the course.

Bad condition

Played the west course in an open tournament, it's an absolute dog track. Both greens and fairways lacked any kind of grass cover, was a lottery if you hot the fairway whether you would get a good lie or a scabby one. Pick and place within in 6 inches is irrelevant if there's nowhere good to place within that radius!

Same condition as most munis, wouldn't pay more than £15.

However will say nice clubhouse and staff.

Got there to find all tees off mats, nothing about this on website or during phone booking. Greens very uneven, not true. Loads of people walking dogs, cycling and generally getting in the way all over the course. Not a good challenge either, 2 of the par 3s are far too long for the average handicapper - need a driver on one! Too many fairways with severe slopes, almost impossible to hold ball. Not enough variety, probably only need 4 clubs. One of worst courses have ever played

Course has certainly seen better days, but was an enjoyable round all the same. The clubhouse staff were great, friendly pro in the shop and the course was deserted! It had rained a lot and the course was quite damp - the greens were not great, but playable, with some nice holes. I will play it again when it's in better shape and will review it again.

Tough but enjoyable courses

Booked to play on the west course & old course. Both courses were very challenging. Fairways were very good. Very disappointed with the greens on the old course. Loads of sand. No warning & no offer of a reduced green fee or credit note.
