Only links course in West Sussex

A long established club with an excellent clubhouse and very welcoming staff and members. Set just behind West Beach, the course is typically flat with strategically placed bunkers. The course is in excellent condition with faster than average greens. There is some work being done in the middle of the course where a new practice area is being constructed but this doesn't cause too much disruption to your round. There is a deep stream that meanders through the course which adds interest! All in all, a very enjoyable round of golf.

A chance to play a classic links course!

After the wettest winter I can remember it was nice to be offered the chance on playing on a chalk based course. I love links, we only have one in Essex, Felixstowe Ferry, so it was nice to sample another one. The drive down to Sussex was horrendous 3 hours of torrential rain! On arrival at Littlehampton I was greeted by the club Captain who rightly predicted the sea drizzle would go by 10.30 am. A doorstop Bacon Sandwich and a couple of coffees soon had me in the right mood.
The driving range is a fair way from the club house, and the putting green was being hollow tied. Many of the greens were temporary as they had been hollow cored and were being dressed. Which was a real shame but what a course and in fantastic condition after this dreadful winter.
So many great holes, pretty flat, well compred to St Andrews any way! If your going to walk bring plenty of energy as it’s a fair trot.
Lovely club house with very friendly staff, meal afterwards was a lasagne which was magnificent. I got the day for £35, but this was a Society day. Fantastic course in a lovely part of England. I want to play it in the summer!

Cracking little links course...

So after many failed attempts to visit this course, I finally committed to a date in order that Mr.Duffy (TSG member) could show me the delights of his local golf club.

Littlehampton is set on the West Sussex Coast and it a real test.

Of course, I was expecting some tough conditions but nothing to what we to face on the day. 30+ mph winds, drizzle, rain, cold and more wind. Its no surprise that it was a 5 hour round but I did feel a sense of achievement having not let the elements beat us.

Despite this, I loved the course! Very flat, not overly long but greens were good, fairways were well kept and the course is a pleasure to play but don't forget the weather.

There are some great Par 3's and 4's on the course, some hard to reach and many surrounded by bunkers and gorse, so pick your spots. However, on a calm day, you could really attack the greens.

The Clubhouse has a typical seaside feel and the sound of the masts clanking from the neighbouring marina reminds you that you on the coast.

Traditional in look and feel, we could not order food as it was past 5pm when we finished and our cars were the only ones left in the car park but I will put this down to the weather and anyone remotely sane would be tucked up at home with a hot toddy.

Great Putting and practice areas and a nice friendly Pro shop were enough for me to want to return.... and I have no doubt Mr.Duffy will welcome any of us at his club - just check the forecast before leaving home!

Excellent true links course

I try to always play this course when I'm having a south coast golf trip. It's a bit off the beaten track but worth going out of your way for. It's a private members club, but you can turn up and play most weekday afternoons, unless there's a club competition.

This is one of the few true links courses around, and it has a great feel to it, with a salty smell to the air and towering sand dunes. At £38 on a week day it's not cheap but worth the money, with true greens and nice sand - in summer you can play a twilight round for £20.

The first hole is a beast of a par 4, which always seems to play into the wind - 5 is a fine score for most players. The second hole is where you first notice the sand traps, which can be truly penal - if you're short there's a nasty pot bunker about 190 yards down the right side of the fairway.

On hole 7 it's traditional to sneak up and play from the elevated member's tees, which provide views of the Clymping beach on the left. You then play the next few holes along the sand dunes and this stretch often plays into the wind. Any slightly fadey shots get punished since the wind will direct them right towards the gorse.

On hole 11 you turn round and head back, and you may have the wind with you. However, the back 9 has some intimidating tee shots with the risk of losing balls left. Holes 17 and 18 can be tough finishing holes, depending on what the wind is doing.

You can score well on this course if you play solidly and keep away from the bunkers, but it's a good test of your course management. Looking forward to returning soon.

Littlehampton golf club

Having been recommended by one of my customers, littlehampton golf club was next on my radar of courses to play this summer.

Littlehampton is a links course playing just under 6000yrs off yellow tees, played in perfect conditions and now on the 241 scheme.

The condition of the course was good, greens in good nick and a good variety of holes, a couple of holes could be accused of being up and down but for £17.50 this I must say is one of my bargain finds.

Now maybe I was in the right place at the right time and guess if the wind got up then this place could prove tricky.

Would I call this a hidden little gem ---------- possibly yes or did the fact I played well here and shot a good score may have taken over my emotions --- decide for yourself!!!!!!!!!!!!!
