Delightful course being made better.

Unfortunately two greens under repair but for very good reasons....better drainage. Mind you this course is built on Chalk at the top of the South downs so drains pretty well anyway. Greens were in good condition even though "aired" about a week ago. Running true and quick. Views of Brighton and out to sea are great and depending on your point of view the wind turbines only add/hinder the view. Sunset is orgeous at this time of the year and the clubhouse protects you from the glare as you rise up the 18th.

Great course in great condition

Played in a 4 ball. Never held up and didn't need to let people through; good steady pace. Lucky it wasn't windy as this would be very tough in high winds. Greens true and clear. Staff friendly in pro shop and bar

Excellent challenge

The course is in excellent condition and comparable to many other local courses the greens are fantastic. Some were like sheets of glass and fairway to rough definition was clear. The wind and holes designs make this a challenge for any golfer and a fellow 18 handicap could shoot a thrilling low 80s or in the 3 figures, which make it a winner for me.
Small practice putting green which I could imagine getting quite crowded and the driving range is so thin (runs alongside 1st fairway) it is probably not worth having.
One quite clear observation in my opinion is that the 9 holes should be flipped and you finish on the 9th as the new 18th. I'm surprised this isn't the case as the 10th is also right below the roof top terrace bar and would make a great 1st!
Overall we thought it was great value for money and wouldn't hesitate playing again, but check the weather forecast ahead and predicted winds as even on a clear day I'm sure it's blustery up on those downs.

What a course

The views are unbelievable. Tough track but what a course. Very hilly and most shots ball under feet which make it quite tricky. Greens are in amazing condition.

Great course , shame about speed of play

Really good course unfortunately spoilt by appallingly slow play.
Tee of time at 1:40 for two golfers and off the 18th at 5:40 can’t fault the course as it’s well kept and the greens are in top condition, however this round was spoilt by the slowest 4 ball I have ever encountered . Caught up with the group on the 4th hope then had a wait of 10 to 15 mins per hole and ended up stacked 3 groups deep in the 17th hole .. not once offered to play through by the 4 ball , really poor completely ruined the round ...

Fist of the new year.

Very well maintained course after the recent rains. The pace of play was slow and we got annoyed when the two ball had a go at the pace of play. Bery rude as they could see the course was vey busy. We will come back again hopefully the biting wind will be gone.

Disappointing

I played this with high hopes reading the reviews but was disappointed. The pace of play was so slow that it was painful at times. We had 3 groups queuing for one hole at one point. I can only think that the tee times are far too close together as a reason for this? Badly organised.

The course itself was okay, the greens could be better. But a lovely location with some nice views.

Greens a bit rutted

Hot deal at 1.45 pm when it gets dark at 4.40 left very little time for our threesome. Fortunately we were able to start early. Course and views great as usual but greens poor today. Rutted and unreliable

Cross winds play havoc

Another visit to this fantastic course. It’s up high and near the sea so winds are to be expected. Unfortunately that brings out the worst in me! But the course is in fantastic shape. Greens true but slick. Rough a tad punishing. But overall a delight as usual.

Course on a Sunday afternoon was busy, but we did not have to wait on any holes. 3 players finished in just over three and a half hours. Greens fast and true,fairways running fast and tee boxes excellent. Great course to play on a sunny day.
