Draw for Eastbourne Downs

Eastbourne down

Happy New Year.  We look forward to seeing you on Friday with a decent turnout for a cold January day on the coast.  The good news is the course is built on chalk so despite the recent rain and floods should be relatively dry !

High on a plateau of the South Downs behind Beachy Head, the course of the Eastbourne Downs Golf Club occupies a glorious position looking over the town of Eastbourne. Southwards over the sea one sees far reaching views along the coastline and out into the English Channel, facing northwards there are superb views of the beautiful undulating downland. Eastbourne Downs Golf Course is an 18 hole, par 72 (6601 yard), downland golf course designed by JH Taylor in 1907

Please be at the tee and ready to go 5 mins before your tee time and I respectfully suggest we should be aiming to be back in the clubhouse with a pint in hand inside 4 hours 15mins. Please keep up with the group in front and not just be comfortable with being slightly ahead of the group behind!
