Goodwood Golf (Downs course)


4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Goodwood Golf (Downs course) Est. 1892

Where2Golf says: 

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 on top of the glorious Sussex Downs, giving you the chance to take in views over Chichester, the sea and the Isle of Wight while you consider your next shot.
