What the club says: Set in beautiful rolling countryside and boasting panoramic sea views, Sharpley Golf course is an absolute pleasure to play - it is challenging Par 71 and has many unusual water features and established greens. The course has been designed with input from three top architects and shaped using an experienced team, over a number years and therefore has an established feel with greens built to USGA standards. The Head Greenkeeper Richard Hood boasts over 25 years of experince and is committed to Sharpley. An extensive drainage network built into the course boasts the newest technology, meaning whatever the weather, the course will be in the condition golfers expect, day to day, season to season.

Fantastic Course

Sharpley continues to be a real gem, and, barring serious weather, is almost always playable. Great layout, nice views and interesting greens, I love it.

"Fantastic course worth visiting

The course was in really good condition with fairways and green in excellent condition. Shame the clubhouse closed at 7.30 as missed a pint at the end of a great round.

Great Winter Course

We play Sharpley a lot and it's a great course all year round, but it drains so well it really is a winter banker of a course. We were going to play George Washington (also a great course) but no trolleys were allowed due to the excessive rain. Sharpley was pretty much not affected, which makes it such a good option.

First class course

Enjoy playing this course. Good mixture of holes with some challenges. The last 2 par fives are always a challenge to finish the round. The course was in great condition and we had a breakfast bun and lunch afterwards which was good value.
