Benefits at a Glance

Golf membership is a unique experience. We think that once you've experienced it you'll never look back. 


As a Downs member you'll soon meet plenty of people and begin making new friendships. We are a social bunch - always welcoming and encourage members to play with different people. With weekly social 'thrashes' - regular partners or simply joining a group on the tee. Once you're a member you are part of something bigger.

Walk up and play

Members don't need to book a tee time for social golf. Simply walk up and play generally whenever you feel like it. Tee times are reserved for competitions and large groups of visitors but it's a rare occassion when you can't get out when you want to.

Play as often as you like

If you're a member you can play our course as often as you want. If you have the energy 7 days a week, all day long. Just have time for a quick 4 hole loop - no problem. Want to tame the back nine - again no problem. Full membership provides you access to our course all the while it's open.

This ability to play as often as you want, whenever you want is one of the major advantages of being a Downs member.

Organised golf

Across the Club we have organised golf events - from social thrashes, social competitions, Club matches with other clubs to structured medal and trophy competitions - for ALL abilities across the entire Club. We have weekday and weekend events (Club events tend to take place at the weekend)

An opportunity to gain a handicap

Gaining a handicap is the gateway to competitive golf. Handicaps are based on your ability and enable you to play in competitions and in Open competitions at other clubs. It reflects your ability and importantly enables you to compete on a level playing field regardless of your ability. Whether you start out as a 28 handicapper playing a single figure golfer or vice versa - play to your handicap and you compete on level terms - no other sport achieves this.

Reciprocal rates with other clubs.

At the Downs we have teamed up with other local clubs to offer members reciprocal rates at other course. Our friends courses can be played for as little as £10 (subject to booking). No two for one deal can beat that in the summer.and is only available to linked golf club members. Our list is growing all the time and includes Royal Eastbourne, Willingdon, Cooden Beach, Haywards Heath and Ifield, Seaford, Mid Sussex, Mannings Heath, Effingham Park.

Access to our facilities

As well as the course - our main attraction - you also get to use our practice facitlities, including the driving range and short game areas. Bring your own practice balls or use ours. You can also hire a locker or space in our trolley store your gear, saving you the journey home.As a member you can also hire the clubhouse to hold your own private function. Usually free of charge.

Great value

Once you start playing the cost of your round of golf is simply peanuts compared to our normal green fee rates. With our full membership the more you play, the more you save. You'll also get 10% off your bar purchases using your members card. We've also arranged third part insurance cover within your membership. Couple that with discounted golf at other clubs you'll soon recoup the initial membership fee.
