Little good un

First of all have to say a BIG thanks and thumbs up to the ground staff looking forward to the spring when the new tee?s etc will be in operation.True being spread over 3 fields it's not to every one?s liking but being on chalk it's a year round course with nice sea views on many holes a good half way hut a small but perfectly formed club house with friendly staff and members,what more could you ask. o yes all at a good price. see you there

Marvellous with a quirkiness that's totally endearing.

Not very long (Par 64) but, if the wind is up, as difficult as any course.
8 par threes. Ranging from 106 to 225 yards. Each throws up it's own problems.
Well maintained greens that were running really well.
Course is played in 4 stages. 1-3 in one field, 4 to 14 in another over the railway bridge, 15 to 17 in another field (all par threes) then back to the first field to play 18 and get into the wonderfully friendly clubhouse.
Officially been around since 1893 as W&B but there's a map in the clubhouse dated 1844. So they are clearly doing something right and breakfast was superb.

Disappointed

First, the positives: the welcome was friendly, the food excellent and the toilets sparkling clean.\\Now the negatives: the greens were scabby, the first cut off the fairways was unfairly tough and tangly, and the whole place seemed a bit run down. \\Although it is a short course, it is a fair test of your handicap. Just a shame that the overall experience was disappointing

Challenge Day

We have just had our first challenge day at WG&BGC today Kingsdown Vs Etchinghill on mutual ground. The course was in very good order 1 temp hole but advised before we went out.
I must say the improvements on the course since lockdown has been fantastic. We had a superb breakfast before playing and the golf professional was very helpful in organising our day.
The catering staff were excellent with good service.
We certainly will plan again to hold our event at this course in the future
Make no mistake this is a challenging course and when work is completed it will be even harder.

Course is split over 3 areas, which are reached by crossing roads. For some reason today players were starting their rounds on hole 17. It is a course that would suit beginners very well.
