Martin Gillett - October 2018

A quick note to say thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality on Monday. Everything, and I do mean everything, was just superb. Your staff are a credit to you!


Nigel Manger - Royal Navy Golf Society - October 2018

Yesterday was a great success. All were very impressed with the course and with the lunch. So much so that all have requested that we hold the fixture at Piltdown in 2019.


Chris Sellings - Visitor - September 2018

I couldn't let an opportunity to heap high praise on your course staff, professionals and members go by.
I made initial enquiries to visit you on a green fee with Chris who was exceptionally warm and friendly. This continued throughout my round from some lovely lady members and many others who stopped to say hello while on adjacent fairways.

The greenkeepers were ever present keeping the course immaculate, but respectful while I played my shots. They were obviously  very proud of what they do giving a very fair and challenging 1st round visit.
It's very rare that a course  can really stir your golfing emotions, and yet I now have Piltdown under my skin. It's lovely. It's makes you feel like your playing in a little golfing bubble.

Everything that is good about golf you can find at Piltdown.

Thank you for a lovely day. My little terrier enjoyed the new pats and praise from your members. 


Roger Sellars - Hever Castle Golf Club - September 2018

My sincere thanks to you and to the whole team at Piltdown for having provided the Hever Castle visitors yesterday with a superb golf course, a great match and a fabulous lunch.

Golf in England just does not get any better than that.


Glyn Bateman - Sussex Professional - September 2018

The course was in superb condition. Those were the best greens we have ever played on in any Sussex Professional event.


Andrew Gifford - Foresters Society - September 2018

Superb day yesterday - thankyou for putting that together. The greens were the best we have seen all year...


Terry McHattie - Piltdown Member

Could you please pass on my thanks to all the staff for yesterday. It is a privilege to belong to such a great golf club.


Richard Leeves - Plus 1 handicap - September 2018

What can I say?! I have been fortunate to have played some of the highest ranked courses across the UK with England Golf & Sussex County and I cannot stress enough in my belief that Piltdown is right up there with the very best of them.

The course was presented professionally, it played fairly but tough in places, and the green structures add a whole to test to the already challenging heathland course.


Robin Meyer - The Senior Golfing Society - September 2018

The course is a revelation compared with a few years ago, and credit must go to you and others who run the Club for it's excellent interest and condition. It really makes for an interesting and challenging experience.

We were also wonderfully looked after by your brilliant staff in the club house.

I'm already receiving applications for next years fixture.

Thank you all very much for a most enjoyable and rewarding day.


Martin Elliott - Pelham Golf Society - September 2018

I just wanted to say a big thank you to every one at Piltdown. The course is in wonderful condition with the works you have done, and continue to do really making a significant difference !

The food as ever was magnificent and the staff very friendly, all in all a great day.


Mike Sawicki - Secretary Parkstone Golf Club - August 2018

I played in the GCMA event last month at Piltdown, and I just wanted to drop you a line to express how impressed I was with the day. Everything, from the competition set up, atmosphere and food were first class, but what impressed me the most was the course.

I really liked the presentation on the approaches and the cleanliness of cut. The fairways were the best I have played on this year. I have played at Hankley Common, Sunningdale, Parkstone, Walton Heath and Ferndown and yours were the best. As clean as a whistle and beautifully presented.


Heather Hutton - Walton Heath Golf Club - August 2018

Thank you and your team at Piltdown for such a happy afternoon's golfing for all of us.  You looked after us so well, and I think there is a strong rumour that  we will be back next year for more!

The course is terrific and it was a treat for me to play it again. Those who played it for the first time, can't wait to come back.


David Robottom - Members Guest - July 2018

I've played golf for over thirty years and I have to say Piltdown was one of the most enjoyable courses, I've played. The way the course protects the greens through heather traps and swirls of heather was very impressive. The course is stunning, gives you a chance but doesn't beat you up, like some more modern courses. A very enjoyable late Summer evening.


From the MCC Golf Society - June 2018

Course simply magnificent, and greens that even a Rye member thought better than theirs at this time of the year.....

Catering was up to the normal high standard. A senior MCC member said that he always booked into the Piltdown match for the quality of the lunch!


From Rye Golf Club Match Manager - June 2018

I have not visited Piltdown for quite some time - I have now seen for myself the fruit of your tremendous investment. You have a beautiful course in top condition. You should feel justifiably proud of your achievement.

Please also convey thanks to Lizzie for the lavish and delicious hospitality.

Apart from conceding defeat it was a day to remember.


From Old Gregorians - June 2018

On behalf of the OG’s, a huge thank you to you and Piltdown for yet again making us so welcome. As always we have had a wonderful day in good company, and most importantly a lot of laughter.!

I would be very grateful if you could pass on our thanks to your green staff for what has clearly been hard work, with excellent results.
And please say thanks to Hazel and her team for their great attention on a very busy day for them.


From Mr Shaw - June 2018

Thanks very much for sorting everything out for us yesterday and  please pass our thanks to Hazel and the team for looking after us so royally. 

The course really was in great shape and much appreciated by the visitors (Aldeburgh, Berkshire and Worplesdon amongst them). 


From Haywards Heath Rotary - May 2018

Our Charity Golf Day on 25th May went off very well; the weather was kind, the course was in beautiful condition and the catering and service provided by the club’s personnel was of the very highest order.

Our thanks also to all staff members involved in making the day such a success and to you personally for the help and assistance you provided prior to the event.
