The golf programme features four quite different and unique courses. On the Sunday afternoon we play at East Brighton Golf Club, a super test of golf in its own right, and which also has one of the most spectacular settings in area, with views along the Sussex coast and out over the English Channel. On Monday we head west to the Sir Henry Cotton designed Waterlooville Golf Club. Our third round is Worthing Golf Club, which is a super downland course, and then finally we head to Hayling Golf Club, one of the best links courses on the south coast.
Our location for the tour is the quite delightful town of Arundel, a picture postcard location if ever there was one. We will be staying at the Swan Hotel in the heart of the village, close to Arundel Castle, with dinner included for all three nights of the tour.
The Swan Hotel
Situated in the heart of the beautiful West Sussex market town of Arundel, The Swan Hotel is a traditional Country Inn dating back to 1759. The hotel boasts boutique accommodation and specialises in fine cuisine, complimented by a warm welcome and the ambience of the hotels’ classic heritage. Although only small, Arundel boasts the second-highest number of listed buildings in the UK and lies just outside the borders of South Downs National Park. The Swan Hotel is passionate about food and the hotel’s professional chefs produce innovative dishes daily, from the freshest local ingredients that can be found. With regards to the bedrooms, each of the rooms offers a truly comfortable night’s sleep and is individually styled with a riverside theme.
Hayling Golf Club
Hayling Golf Club was established in 1883 and is recognised as one of the premier links course on the South Coast. The challenging links course with fast fairways and fine true greens combined with its stunning location and unique Art Deco clubhouse offer a special golfing experience to all visitors.
East Brighton Golf Club
At 6,346 yards par 72, East Brighton presents a genuine challenge for golfers of all handicaps.
Generous fairways with no impossible carries virtually guarantee an enjoyable round. From the 12th tee the highest point on the course there are spectacular views of the English Channel. From Beachy Head to the east and Selsey Bill to the west. On a clear day the silhouette of the Isle of Wight is visible. One important feature of the course is that drainage as it is built on chalk. Making it playable throughout the year rarely using temporary greens.
Worthing Golf Club
Located on the South Downs at Worthing, and close to the Iron Age hill fort of Cissbury Ring, Worthing Golf Club comprises of two courses, the lower and upper. The Club enjoys panoramic views both of the South Downs and the English Channel. The Club was formed in 1905 and its first course, designed by six times Open Championship-winner Harry Vardon was opened in 1906 by Vardon and five-times Open Championship-winner James Braid. After the First World War, the course was redesigned by golf course designer Harry Colt, who created two courses, a lower and upper course. The lower course lies mostly in the valley, while the upper course lies across the ridges. The Lower Course is the Club’s most demanding and the one that we play. It is particularly challenging just before the turn in a valley close to Cissbury Ring known as Deep Bottom. The Upper Course has the widest panorama, where on the ridge of Mount Carvey the coast can be seen from Beachy Head in the east to the Isle of Wight in the west.
Waterlooville Golf Club
Waterlooville Golf Club near Portsmouth in Hampshire was founded in 1907 when a group of gentlemen met with the aim of forming a golf club in the area. The Club is renowned for its friendly atmosphere and warm welcome. The current course was designed by the great Sir Henry Cotton and is a fantastic experience for levels of golfer. Over the last 10 years the Club has spent over £1/4 million investing in the course, with new drainage and enhanced course presentation.
