Nice flat tight course
Hassocks is very nice, relatively short course with a number of dog legs. It also has some very tricky water hazards making it a thinking golfers course. It may not suit big hitters but for those who like a challenge, it is a most rnjoyable experience. The 10th is very difficult and needs some planning.
Managed to arrange a four ball for £100 on a Sunday morning. Can't complain about that.
Course is reasonably short but with a nice selection of parkland style holes. Something for everyone, and they look to be doing quite a lot of work on the course at present to adjust holes and bunkers.
Definitely worth a go.
Good value for money and not too demanding.
Hassocks is relatively flat and not too long so offers a pleasant game which is gentle on the body. The course is generally in good condition with some interesting holes where accuracy is key to avoid the trees and hazards. More landscaping is in progress, and a modern, comfortable clubhouse makes for an enjoyable visit.
Pleasant Parkland Course with excellent greens.....
A pleasant, not to long parkland course with rather excellent greens. Water come into play on 12 of the 18 holes, large ponds or streams, adding to the interest of the layout. Suitable for all level of golfers.
The bunkers are well suplied with nice soft sand.
The greens are very well cut, in fact they have been cut twice at some point, and that makes them extremely fast and first class. Nice ondulating shapes, some with crowns, some raised, some with gulleys, so knowing pin position is more than useful.
Some favourite holes, as well as I can remember as it is now 5 days since I played there:
Hole 11, Par 5, a dog leg to the right with 2 consecutive ponds, one thin & long, the other one large & wide, OOB on the left & on the right as well, a ditch (could be a stream) joining the large pond before the green which is sloping Well a real challenge to cross all the hurdles safely, and apretty hole as well, which I played very safely, I might add, net par.
Hole 13, a long Par 3, nearly 200 yds, OOB on the left, a large greenside bunker on the right which one cannot see from the tee and a green on 2 levels.
Hole 17, a very interesting & challenging Par 3 with a pond protecting the green at the front & ponds to the left and right. The green is uphill.
Very peaceful in lovely Sussex countryside. Well cared for golf course where there seem to be a variety of members, from very young to not so young,mixture of genders, all seem friendly and enjoying their golf course.
A pleasant day (Tuesday 4th Sept 2012), with a new TSGer, Michael O. who has recenty moved to the area, Mr L. still in holiday mood and our famous "Westy" who came to join us on the last 9 ( due to the pressure of work). But as soon as our unstoppable Westy joined us we started our Matchplay, yes for money and big money...
Friendly Pro shop with good stock.
Same for the Clubhouse, with a nice covered patio overlooking the practice putting green.
A large open field with yardage flags for iron practice, with a covered area with a mirror where one can study one 's posture . whether athletcic or not... and if not, work on it.
Large car Park.
If you are in the area, I suggest you try Hassocks and there will be something challenging for any level of golfer.
Hassocks....We were greeted in the pro shop by Alec who claimed the greens were in mint condition and suggested they were better than another top notch course (i miss heard the actual course) but assumed it was 'pukker'.....well he lied..NOT...Hassocks was the fastest greens ive played since Littlehampton Links. Cut to perfection, and the 2nd and 3rd cuts gave a pro tour look about the whole course......would i return???...i asked my playing partners on saturday who was available to go again straight after lunch (36 holes)...but alas no one could make it.....but return again soon....ooohhhhhhhhhh yeeessssssssss
Hassocks, well worth a vist
