GOLF AT GOODWOOD DOWNS COURSE
Goodwood has been at the forefront of international sport for generations through its racecourse, motor racing circuit and is now fast gaining a comparable reputation for the quality of its golf.
Situated on the stunning, unspoiled Sussex countryside on the 12,000 acre Goodwood Estate. Golf At Goodwood is just an hour from London and boasts two championship (see The Park Course overleaf) 18 hole courses.
Ranked in Top 100 English Courses, the Downs Course rises steeply from the clubhouse, The Kennels, up towards Goodwood Racecourse perched high on the South Downs and gives golfers incredible views of Chichester Cathedral, down to the Isle of Wight and the sparkling Solent beyond.
Designed in 1914 by legendary golf architect, designer of Gleneagles and Carnoustie and five times winner of the Open Championship, James Braid, The Downs course is often referred to as one of the finest downland courses in the UK and features tricky doglegs and long sweeping greens which are both a treat and a challenge to true golf fans.
Designed by James Wyatt and built in 1787 to house the Duke of Richmond’s prized hunting hounds, The Kennels is the central clubhouse for all of the estate’s clubs. Described as a ‘Feast for the Senses’, this inviting private members’ club is stylish and welcoming – with modern comfortable interiors, reflecting Goodwood’s eclectic British style.
