Goodwood Golf (Park course)


3+ (3 gold): one of our top-rated 3-star courses, worthy of 3½ stars.
   Goodwood Golf (Park course) Est. 1989

Where2Golf says: 

Goodwood Golf (Park 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.

In 1989, it was decided to create a second course on the Goodwood Estate to complement the original James Braid downland layout. Rather than creating a second course up on the Downs, this time the ground surrounding Goodwood House, where James Braid had laid out some early holes, was used to create a classic parkland challenge. Donald Steel was commissioned to produce a design that would reflect the prestige of the stunning backdrop of Goodwood House and its eighteenth century cedars. The result is an easy-walking course that suits all levels of golfing ability.

The tree-lined fairways that wind their way around Goodwood House are generally flat but not overly-generous and shots to the small greens demand accuracy and finesse rather than brute force. As you come down the 18th, with its spectacular cedar of Lebanon, you can take a moment to reflect on the variety of enjoyable and challenging holes on The Park Course.
