Pyecombe Golf Club is a marvellous venue for members, casual green fee players and Societies. It can also play host for various functions and activities.
Situated in the South Downs National Park, an area of outstanding beauty, the Golf Course offers stunning views across the Sussex Weald and is a haven for wildlife.
The course also offers 'a walk in the country' where natural flora is encouraged and there are regular sightings of deer, buzzards and other wildlife.
James Braid, the iconic golf architect, helped shape the course which was originally sculptured in 1894. Since that time, more land has been obtained providing additional length and opportunities to redesign the layout of the course.
Now, with the course measuring 6278 yards off the White tees, 5955 yards off the Yellow and 5559 yards off the Red tees, it is a good test of golf for all levels of ability. Undulating fairways, smallish greens and challenging dog legs, give ample opportunity to play most types of shots and to use most clubs in the bag.
In the summer, the course is beautifully presented with smooth running greens and manicured fairways. The rough becomes a picture of wild flowers, whilst good shots are always rewarded.
Pyecombe is truly a 12 months of the year golf club. In the winter the course rarely closes as the fairways drain naturally. It is rare for the Club to limit trolley use.
In 2016, Pyecombe were proud to receive the STRI National Environmental Golf Club of the Year award. Further information can be found here. 2013 saw the club achieve the 'Southern Counties Golf Club of the Year'. The judging panel noted 'the fantastic condition of the greens and fairways cut to perfection', also commenting ‘Pyecombe was the most picturesque course in the area whist providing an excellent venue'.

Member car park access
Members are welcome to use the car park during the lockdown period, for example to access the South Downs Way for exercise. The car park is open for member use until 2p.m. on weekdays. Please leave a note of your name on your dashboard. The bollard will go up at 2p.m. Any vehicles left in the car park after this time will be locked in until the next morning. The car park is closed at weekends. When walking, please keep to the South Downs Way as far as possible. Do not bring any golf clubs with you. The Greens Team and marshals will stop anyone found on the course, to ask for proof of membership. Please therefore carry your membership bag tag with you.
Ongoing works - adjacent to car park & SDW
Club member George Couchman and his team have commenced works on the aggregate bay construction.
This is in the upper part of the car park, next to the South Downs Way.
They are working quickly and efficiently - aiming for completion by mid-late March. The area that they are working within is generally railed off. Hopefully it goes without saying, but please do not enter this area for any reason.
Club Closed due to COVID-19 national lockdown
Following the Prime Minister's announcement on 4/1, the Club has closed until further notice. The closure includes the course, practice facilities, clubhouse, and professional's shop. The office will be staffed throughout the lockdown period.
Any retail / shop enquiries should please be emailed directly to Mike: email@example.com
TIER 4 FROM BOXING DAY
From Boxing Day onwards, Sussex will fall within Tier 4. The effect on the Club is that the course can remain open. The clubhouse (except pro shop on a limited basis) must close. Whilst the course is open, play is limited to 2-balls only.
All new bookings will be members only (no member-guests / green fees).
In the interests of fairness to all, members can only book up to 2 weekday rounds and 1 weekend round.
Apologies for any inconvenience.
