It is my honour to be the Captain of Eastbourne Downs Golf Club for 2023/24. The “Downs” is one of the best downland courses around, which I’m sure you will enjoy playing, with its wonderful views over the town, South Downs National Park and of course the sea, and is further enhanced by the warm, friendly and relaxed atmosphere in our clubhouse.
Gents competitions are held most weekends, predominantly on Sundays. Saturdays are kept mostly for social golf with a members roll up reserved for the first few hours where, as it says on the tin, you can just roll and go out with your mates. Or if you prefer, get to know some members by entering the early morning fun thrash that all are welcome to join. In addition there are a variety of cup, league and friendly matches against other clubs throughout the county, either during the week or weekend.
You’re welcome for a taster session and once you’ve tried it I’m sure you’ll want to join the friendliest club in Sussex.
The seniors section is open to all male members aged 55 or over and within the section there are a variety of handicaps from single figure to 30 plus, so all abilities are welcome.
As well as thrashes played on Monday’s and Friday’s, weekly competitions are held on Wednesday mornings and vary from individual stroke-play, stableford and pairs events. There are also inter-club summer and winter friendly competitions against local clubs both home and away, giving members the chance to play at other courses
We guarantee a warm welcome awaits you on joining Eastbourne Downs ladies. We offer the full range of golfing experiences from fun games and friendly matches, ladies and mixed club competitions to Sussex County competitions. Our main playing days are Thursdays and weekends, but if you want a game on another day, we can happily find one or two lady members to enjoy a round with you. Contact the office if you would like an opportunity to enjoy a trial round with us
