The course is home to deer, badgers and brown hares plus all manner of birds and wildlife. All the holes are interesting, with the signature hole, the third, renowned both for its beauty and test of golfing skills.

Set adjacent to the South Downs Way, with the final three holes overlooked by the famous Jack and Jill windmills, this scenic course enjoys being open for play all the year round thanks to its excellent chalk drainage. Regarded as a downland gem, it has won awards for the sympathetic way in which the course is environmentally managed.

Owned by its members, it is one of the oldest golf clubs in the country, having been founded in 1894.

It has a brand new pro shop where PGA professional Jason Bowen offers a professional, friendly and easy to understand approach to golf coaching for all ages and ablities. He has a well-stocked pro shop plus electric buggies available for hire all the year round, which are a recent addition at Pyecombe.

This friendly club welcomes new members and has an attractive clubhouse, with its own restaurant area, offering excellent food.

Green fees are available at good rates, especially off peak times. It is set only 300 yards from an exit on the A23 and is easily accessible from all directions.

Pyecombe Golf Club is offering West Sussex Gazette readers a prize worth £200 to win in a conpetition this week - for four people to sample the excellence of its downland course, clubhouse and pro shop.

The winner will be able to take three friends along for a round of golf on this outstanding 18-hole golf course, preceded by a sandwich plus tea or coffee in the clubhouse. They will play the course using electric buggies from the pro-shop on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon on a date agreed with the club.
