Course Details

Course Name: West Course Holes: 18 Yardage: 5606 SSS: 67
A short course by today's standards, but still as it was 100 years ago, a good test of golf for all levels of handicap. The course is set in the beautiful Ashdown Forest and managed by the Ashdown Forest Golf Hotel. The course was the venue for the English Ladies Amateur Open in 1932. This was won by the late Mrs Critchley, mother of Bruce the Sky TV golf commentator. There are no sand bunkers but small fast greens and natural terrain give this course an inland links feel. Easy walking. This course is one of 14 in the vicinity which the hotel can arrange access to enable a golf tour of East Sussex.

        so sorry to hear that this hotel was demolished in 2003.
        I ran the hotel with my husband in the mid to late 1970's but left when the owner died.
        We lived with our son and welcomed our daughter there when she came back from being born at the hospital in Pembury Kent in June 1978.
        My son is to get married in December this year and he had booked a room here for a few days not knowing that this was going to be a different hotel to the one he has booked.
