Pyecombe Golf Club
Welcome to Pyecombe

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'.

Latest News
4th green - Tuesday 17th May
Please note that the 4th green will be taken out of play from 1p.m. on Tuesday 17th May, to facilitate essential maintenance. Play will be to a temporary green, at the top of the hill before the bridle path. The green staff intend to sheet the entirety of the 4th green. The sheeting will remain in place overnight and will then be removed before the commencement of play on Wednesday. The purpose of sheeting the green is to draw leatherjackets out from beneath the surface. We can then get a gage on the leatherjacket population and – having drawn them out to the surface – seek to control the population. We took a similar approach to all greens last year, to good effect. Leatherjackets are the larvae of flies known as crane flies or daddy-longlegs. They can have a very detrimental effect on sports turf. Measures to control leatherjackets are very limited, but we take all measures that are open to us. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Greens in recovery following maintenance
Greens maintenance took place at the end of April.
All greens were verti-drained and top dressed with sand.
It will take some time for the greens to recover. The recovery period is dependent on growth conditions such as rainfall, sunshine and warm temperatures.
In the meantime, we are sorry that the greens are not playing as well as you’d usually expect. However, the work is for the long-term benefit of our greens.

Preferred lies removed
Please note that commencing Sunday 1st May 2022, preferred lies (winter rules) have been removed.
The Local Rules have been updated accordingly. Please see the first tee notice board for a copy.
