Pyecombe Golf Course is a good test of golf! Although not strictly a seaside course, it certainly plays like one and lends itself to a beautiful walk, with outstanding views, as well as a fantastic round of golf. If you keep your scorecard in good order from the 1st to the 5th, then you should look to play to near your handicap. These holes are testing and undulating. The 2nd hole is a very good test for any golfer, requiring an accurate and bold drive, followed by a testing uphill second shot to a small, fast, raised green. One extra club length springs to mind!. As you move into the middle of the front 9, the course plays across the top of the South Downs, however, you need to be aware of the contours and dog legs to maximise your scoring potential. Although tree and gorse lined, the holes are very well thought out. I am sure the rough will be heavier in the Summer months (we played in April) to catch and penalise any loose golf shots!. The front nine is completed by a Par 3 across the valley, however, club selection is vital to maintain momentum on your scorecard in preparation for the back 9. This starts with a good Par 5 dog leg, which for the long hitter may be an opportunity to score well, however, beware the approach on the next hole as it's name (Pond) is in play for the wayward second shot. Once through this valley, you climb back onto the top of The Downs to play a couple of nice Par 4s and a Par 3 where accuracy will be rewarded. This Par 3 is also SI3. Club selection, weather conditions and the green mean a par here is a good score for any golfer! The course then stretches out again, opening with a Par 5 on an escarpment which will test even the longest hitter. Completion of this - parallel to the South Downs Way - signals the turn for home. The remaining holes are all good Par 4s requiring both accuracy and the necessity to club correctly to hit the greens in regulation and keep your score intact. I am sure there are many a grandstand finishes here, as the three last holes carry an
element of risk/reward. The windmills are an ever present feature and they are a constant reminder (wind) of the test you have put upon yourself. We played Pyecombe on a warm Spring day and the course was in good condition. However - and just as importantly to me - the overall experience of visiting this club was first class. From arrival and checking in with the pro, to the food and beverage staff and the members, you will be welcomed and hosted from start to finish both on the course and off. The food was good (especially the homemade muffins and rock cakes), the drinks most welcome and the membership most hospitable. In summary, I would not hesitate in recommending this golfing experience and must commend Pyecombe in nurturing such a friendly and hospitable club.

Pyecombe is an excellent golf course lying in a sylvain
position on the South Downs and offers panaromic views to the Weald and countryside to the coast. It is a natural course evolved over a 100 years and does not have fairway placement bunkers in line with an excellent drive off the tee. It relies upon the courses natural contours to provide the challenges.As the course meanders through the countryside, you will face dog legs,some particularly hard par 4's such as the 3rd valley hole but no matter how you play you will still enjoy the scenery and wildlife.

If you don't enjoy this course you don't enjoy golf. A course all levels can play.
