The Course
The work on the new putting green in front of the clubhouse has gone according to plan. The turf will be stripped from the existing putting green and laid on the new space during the coming weeks. This will be a brilliant addition to our facilities when it opens in the spring/summer of 2019. Tree clearance by the Piltdown Pond has started. This will enable us to open up the views to and across the Pond from many different locations on the course, including the 1st green and 4th tee. Course maintenance was carried out on the greens the first week in August, and they are now showing a really good recovery (August 15th) We have applied a thin layer of top dressing today, and we are confident that by the weekend there will be very little if any evidence of the work. Thanks to all members for their patience through this essential work. From 2013 - 2018 we replaced all the clay soil greens on the course with new ones built on sand. During the reconstruction we made some interesting and subtle design changes to enhance the interest of the course. The final two greens - 14th and 16th opened in May 2018 The "Greens Project" has been a huge undertaking, and has cost over half a million pounds. Our aim to become a Top 100 Club has been achieved with a ranking of 43rd in a 2018 poll in National Club Golfer. Once the final 3 greens have bedded in over the next year or so, and the tree removal and heather regeneration project settles down we will really be in a strong position to move forwards with our quest to be recognised as one of the best courses in Sussex.
