DOWNS GOLF COURSE
Designed originally for the pleasure of the eighth Duke of Richmond’s golf mad younger brother, the award-winning Downs Course has been described as the finest “downland” layout in Britain. It was created by James Braid in 1914, one of the greatest golfers of all time and a renowned figure in golf course architecture. The five times Open Champion created a course that was recently ranked as one of the Top 100 Gold Courses in England.
With undulating fairways and fast greens, tricky doglegs and long sweeping greens, the Downs Course is the perfect test for golfers of all abilities. It has recently undergone renovation by leading golf architect Tom Mackenzie to retain the essential character of Braid’s concept, while providing a challenge for the modern game for both amateurs and professionals alike.
The Course has welcomed such golfing greats as Justin Rose, Ian Poutler, Luke Donald and Colin Montgomerie - all have played and enjoyed its beautiful layout. Arguably, this is the ultimate golfing experience for any golfer looking for a memorable 18 holes on a stunning golf course in West Sussex.
