Piltdown Golf Club
18 Holes, Bar, Par 68, Pro Shop, Restaurant
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.
