The Golf Course

Start Course Tour

Our course is 6,500 yards, par 71, and it demands your concentration all the way.

Originally open heathland; it now has many tree-lined fairways that make the wind direction even less predictable. It also retains the undulations and unpredictability of bounce so typical of Harry Colt designs, which bring the charm and challenge of seaside links to his inland courses.

The best feature of all, maybe, are our greens; among the quickest and trickiest in the county.

So, it is not surprising that the course has been chosen so often for county and national championships. It was also the Regional Qualifying course for the Open Championship from 2006-2010, and it is now the South of England venue for the worldwide Faldo Series of junior golf competitions.

And, since the course opened on June 6 1910, some of the world’s greatest golfers have played here. Why not come and walk in their footsteps? Oh, and one tip: if you can draw the ball off the tee, you’ll have the best line in to most greens…
