More information about Worthing Golf Club

Clubhouse with Bars, Full catering, Changing rooms. Professional shop with equipment hire. Golf practice facilities inc driving range, putting green
Worthing Golf Club, laid out on the slopes of the Downs immediately below the site of the Roman Fort at Cissbury Ring, was founded in 1905 and offers two 18 hole Downland courses.

The Upper course is a relatively short 5211 yard Par 66, but the severly undulating terrain coupled with the seemingly constnt challenge of the wind means that scoring well is always a challenge.

The Lower Course is longer, at 6505 yards and is generally considered one of the best of the Downland Links Courses.  The course as a whole is excellent, but the series of holes around the turn, set in the picturesque valley known as Deep Bottom, offer an excellent challenge in a beautiful setting.

Exellent views of the Channel from Beachy Head to the Isle of Wight are visible from both courses with particularly loveley views from the Upper course.

Visitors are welcome. Contact club to make arrangements

Wonderful course; playability very weather dependent

Worthing has two courses, the Lower and Upper. I played the Lower course which is generally regarded as the premier of the two.
The course was in wonderful condition; tee-boxes, fairways; bunkers and greens.There are significant changes in elevation to negotiate, the most severe uphill challenges being on the back 9. The par 4s indices 1, 2 & 3 were particularly difficult, especially when the very windy conditions materialised for the back 9. The par 3s were also a beautiful challenge.

The Lower course is a par 69, with an SSS of 70; 6505 yards from the whites and 6184 yards off the yellows. I played the course once previously with Roger Ackerman's Pinetrees Society.
Weekday visitor fees are £50 for the Lower course, £25 as a members guest or £30 with a County Card. The green fess for the Upper course are lower.
By entering the club's Seniors Open Stableford Competition with an entry fee of £40 including coffee; 18 holes, a two course buffet lunch and prizes, I enjoyed excellent VFM. The club also provided bananas, biscuits and bottled water at the 1st tee.
The VFM was even more so by the fact that my two playing competitors as individuals were also team partners and in this context we won the team event by 1 point on 102 points, winning a £40 voucher each to spend in the club pro-shop. Unsurprisingly one of my teammates (Alan Frew) was the overall winner on 38 points, 20 on the back nine in very windy conditions.

Hospitality by our competition organisers, the Worthing membership and catering providers was also very welcoming and of high order.

There is an excellent pro-shop; practice facilities were excellent though I did not personally use them.

Play it it you can get a good deal.

The 'Lower Course', lovely and well worth playing

Paid £22 to play the 'Lower' course at Worthing as a guest of a member (£28 I believe as a visitor).

It was New Year's Eve so expected it to be a little laid back but was still pleasantly surprised by the friendly clubhouse and friendly members.

Practice facilities looked good (but didn't use them!). Played the Lower Course (6505 yards) not the shorter Upper Course (5211 yards).

Have to say it was lovely, weather was kind (cold but no rain) and the the course rises quickly then falls to wind through a pretty valley before rising again to give lovely views across Worthing to the English Channel and the Isle of Wight.

Very well maintained and an excellent challenge with elevated tees, elevated greesn, numerous level changes, nasty bunkers and wildy undulating fairways (you have to be pretty good to score well here!).
All in all thoroughly recommended (and a steal at £22)
