Cowdray Golf

A year-round course in the heart of Sussex

Golf has been played on our beautiful course for well over a century. The Club is a proprietary business, owned by the Viscount Cowdray and our core aim is to provide excellent facilities with a friendly service. Membership is at the heart of the club, however we extend the warm welcome to all and have been a popular destination for visiting golfers for many years.

Golf Studio

"I have really enjoyed my sessions in the Golf Studio, and I feel that it has helped my game considerably.  The Trackman equipment in the studio gives lots of information about how you are hitting the ball and it's great to hit out onto grass rather than on to a simulated screen.  I really recommend it."
- Jim Rice
