Royal Ashdown Forest Golf Club Reviews


1. Great course

I played this today, and it's genuinely a rip-snorter of a course.

I thought I'd played it as part of the old BBC Golf Forum Golf Day, but I now realise we'd simply played the West Course twice on the day.

Lots of cracking holes, but the stand-out hole for me was the 249 yard Par 3 11th.

The only negative bit of the course is, unfortunately, the last hole. It doesn't seem an appropriate ending hole for a course of that quality (even if it is relatively easy - which can be nice to finish a round with if you've scored well).

I've queried about membership, but there appears to be quite a few hoops to jump through to be accepted. If I understood correctly, I would need 18 members to vouch for me at various levels and it could take 8 months for it to be complete. And do you know what? I have no problem with that whatsoever, as those requirements are exactly what I would want from a club of that quality - Diggers would be apoplectic, mind :-D

Anyway, let's see what happens on the membership front, but if you get the chance to play it as a member's guest (a steal at £20), do so.
