Littlehampton Golf Club was founded on 16 February 1889 at the local Terminus Hotel, with around twenty-five inaugural members signing up for the new club. The original 9-hole course was only in play for five years when additional land was secured, allowing the club to engage J. H. Taylor and F. G. Hawtree to redesign the layout and set out eighteen holes.

After World War II, it’s reckoned that £10,000 was spent removing 400 concrete blocks and a military road, as well as repairing a variety of tank and lorry trails which had been created by army vehicles during the war years. Unfortunately, the clubhouse was burned down in 1985 but the club quickly got over this loss and came back stronger than ever.

In Frank Pennink’s choice of golf courses, the author has this to say about the course: “at the pleasant, natural, seaside resort of Littlehampton, with its wide open spaces, woods, river and harbour, here is a golf course with an unusual nautical flavour beside its vast expanse of golden sands.

Since the county championships were first played here in 1902, Littlehampton has changed much for the better, particularly after the ravages of war dictated an almost fresh start. The turf has come on wonderfully with the years and the county is fortunate in having this true seaside links.”

J. H. Taylor

J. H. Taylor is rightly regarded as a golfing pioneer. The five-time Open champion was one of the best golfers of his era, he then played a significant role in shaping the way that the game is now conducted.
