Piltdown Golf Club

  • Piltdown is located in a small village of the same name, home to the infamous Piltdown Man Scam of 1912 and in recent years the club has made huge investments into the course which have left it being arguably one of the best courses in Sussex.
    This course is not considered to be a long one at 6,055 yards from the back tees but with six par 4s measuring at over 400 yards this course is by no means an easy one. Piltdown’s course is bunkerless which can lead players into a false sense of security but with plenty of other hazards including dogleg shaped holes, ravines and deep hollows you must play with accuracy if you hope to have a good scorecard at the end of the 18th hole. One of the best things about this challenging course is the way in which it blends effortlessly into its surroundings with heather-covered banks, gullies, dense patches of heather and grassy swales which can be seen throughout your round here. This is an excellent course and is one that you must take the time to play and enjoy in the Sussex countryside.

    Not only does the club provide you with an excellent round of golf but after your round, the listed building clubhouse is a charming way to end your trip to Piltdown Golf Club with a few drinks and some great food.

    Hosts to the Sussex Open in 2016 and 2017, there are some great holes on the course, the majority of which are surrounded by heather. Standout holes are the 3rd, 4th and 5th which are as hard of a 3 hole stretch as you will find. The 3rd is a 450 yard par 4 with a 90 degree dogleg at about 250 yards from the tee. Heather, trees and water all come into play - it is stroke index 1 for a reason. Following this is the 4th, a brute of a par 3 at over 200 yards of pure carry over heather to a relatively small green, and then the 5th is an uphill par 4 of 432 yards with trees and heather on both sides. 

    There are many other great holes, another good section are 9th, 10th & 11th all of which have had considerable changes to their greens and now play as an excellent triangle of holes. You hear many Golf Clubs being described as a “hidden gem”, but Piltdown truly is one so make sure that you come and see for yourself why.
