2-FORE!-1 best of britain: Sussex


The county of Sussex is the home of some top quality golf courses and fortunately many belong to the 2-FORE!-1 scheme and offer half-price golf with a 2-FORE!-1 voucher.

Here are a handful of Sussex's 2-FORE!-1 finest:

*Crowborough Beacon - Tight mature heathland layout which is always in outstanding playing condition. Watch out for the star 5th hole which requires a long drive to carry a large ravine.

*Royal Ashdown Forest (West course) - Sits in the shadows of the majestic Old Course but is a classy heathland layout in its own right. The West started out as a nine holer in 1889 but was transformed to 18 holes in 1932.

*Brighton & Hove - This wonderful nine holer is the oldest course in Sussex and celebrated its 125th anniversary last year.

The downland course is always in excellent shape - the exceptional natural drainage owing to its lofty location high on the Sussex Downs, means it is in fact only closed for snow!

Although a nine holer you can comfortably and enjoyably play 18 - there are different tees as you can play from the whites on the front nine and the black tips on the reverse nine.

*East Brighton - Stunning par-72 fast-draining downland layout with top views - from the 12th tee, the highest point on the course, you'll be knocked out by the spectacular vistas of the English Channel.

*Tilgate Forest - A great all-round golf complex and you'll particularly be impressed by the challenging par-72 course with its combination of tree-lined fairways, tight doglegs and well-guarded greens.

*Mannings Heath(Kingfisher course) - One of the best golf venues in the region and the Kingfisher course is a fine foil for the neighbouring, members only Waterfall track.
