Review for Royal Ashdown Forest (Old)

Reviewer Score:


Unfortunately, the admin on our booking to play the course was not well handled but after a delay, we were able to proceed to the course. Others have commented that it is a quirky layout beginning with the first hole that shares a fairway with the 18th. But this is a wonderfully natural golf course with some memorable holes. The opening five offers wide fairways and playable approaches and gets you into your round. The club prides itself on the short 6th, claiming it to be reminiscent of the famous Postage Stamp at Troon… not sure about that but a nice little hole nonetheless. Moving through into the second nine, I wished I had purchased a stroke saver as some of the natural hazards are not always seen from the fairway. Play the par-3s well, and you have a chance to come in with a decent score here… all the short holes were great fun. We found the greenkeeping a bit lax to be frank, and the clubhouse somewhat dog-eared, but neither that nor the errors on our booking took away from a wonderful day at the cusp of three counties.
