The Course
An exciting new addition to our facilities that will open in the Spring of 2019 is the Putting Green that has been built in front of the clubhouse. This cost £30,000 to build, and over £20,000 was raised through members generosity and fundraising. Club secretary Phil Bonsall also managed to obtain a development grant from the EU of £7,500 to make the project a reality. 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. 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.
