Goodwood Golf (Downs course): The remarkable sporting estate of Goodwood, where horse-racing, motorsport, flying and shooting can all be indulged, also offers two top-quality golf layouts: the public-access Park course and the Downs course, reserved for members and hotel guests.
The Downs course, originally laid out in 1914 by James Braid was renovated in 2006. It is generally the higher rated of the two courses, occupying a more open and undulating area of downland. The layout takes you up onto the glorious Sussex Downs, and a chance to take in views over Chichester, the English Channel and, in the distance, the Isle of Wight.

Goodwood enjoys an exceptional variety and unique mixture of activities, ranging from horseracing, motor racing, flying, golf and shooting. It even has its very own hotel (The Goodwood Park Hotel - see below) and spa.
Golf at the Goodwood Club dates back more than a century, when in 1901, the Duke of Richmond gave permission to play on a superb course laid out by champion golfer and eminent designer, James Braid.
