West Sussex - West Sussex Golf Club

This heathland course is one for the true golf aficionados

West Sussex Golf Club is a course that all golf aficionados should tick off their list. The big names of Sunningdale, Walton Heath and Swinley Forest are all within an hour’s drive, but this little-known gem offers one of the UK’s best heathland challenges.

West Sussex has everything you expect from a good golf course. In the modern world where length is cardinal, its secrets lie in the heather and pine terrain and the invigorating backdrop of the beautiful Sussex Downs. It has variety, charm and challenge on every hole holes, something not often achieved.

The West Sussex Golf Club, popularly known as Pulborough, was officially opened in 1931, having been designed by two outstanding golf architects, Guy Campbell, who also designed Princes’ and Killarney and Cecil Hutchison, designer of Gleneagles and Turnberry. (Very recently, Stafford Hotchkin has been attributed to West Sussex too). At Pulborough, these architects are acknowledged to have created one of the most natural and aesthetically pleasing courses in England.

Visitors are made welcome on most days of the year as guests of a member, as part of a society, or as a member of another recognised golf club in the UK or abroad.

To ensure that full rounds are completed in little more than three hours, the convention at West Sussex is to play either singles or 2-ball foursomes.
