North Downs start list

Happy New Year and Decade one and all. Our first event of the New Year is at the North Downs golf course which is a parkland course set on the North Downs at between 800 and 850 feet above sea level, with spectacular views in all directions. The course is challenging and requires careful shot selection and accuracy to cope with the demands of the layout. The course was originally opened in 1899.
