Built in 1896 on top of chalk hills in the heart of Sussex, the elevated course winds it way through rolling south coast countryside, with picturesque views of the South Downs and the historic town from which it gets its name. On a clear day it is possible to pick out landmarks in the Sussex Weald and as far as the North Downs.

NB We will be playing winter rules on Friday – for the avoidance of doubt see below:-
If a player’s ball lies on a closely-mown area through the green the player may mark, lift and clean their ball without penalty. Before lifting, they must mark the position of the ball. The player must then place the ball on a spot within six inches of and not nearer the hole than where it originally lay.

The 12th Hole
Tee times start at 11am. We have 14 (plus a possible) confirmed players – please be at the tee and ready to go 5 mins before your tee time. In addition, each group is respectfully requested to keep up with the team in front and not aim to be just ahead of the group behind – Please avoid slow play at all times – we as a society aim as threeballs to complete our rounds comfortably within 4 hours 15 mins.
