Dewlands Xmas Draw

The weather looks decent but very cold for our Christmas Bash on Friday. We have a good strong field of 26 tempted no doubt by getting up early on freezing cold December morning – nothing to do with the Christmas lunch that follows!!

Dewlands was designed and built in 1989 the golf course covers the land that surrounds Dewlands Manor. These fields have always been part of the manor domain which dates back to the 15th Century. Sited on the second highest point in Sussex the location provides delightful views to the South Downs.
