Piltdown Golf Club


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Piltdown Golf Club Est. 1904

Where2Golf says: 

Piltdown Golf Club: This very pleasant wooded heathland course is laid out on a high plateau of the Sussex Weald, although scenic views are limited. There is nothing too dramatic or spectacular about the course and you will definitely not find any sand bunkers here, and very few water hazards. But don't think all is plain sailing, you will doubtless find the abundance of heather and some gorse waiting for any stray shots. Although a bit on the short side, Piltdown is a good challenge for golfers of any level.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
