Where to Stay: Dale Hill Hotel and Golf Club
Dale Hill Golf – The Old Course
The Old Course at Dale Hill is a fantastic golf course that offers panoramic vistas over the Sussex countryside.
Opened for play in 1973 the Old course is relatively short in modern-day course design at a little over 5,800 yards and with a Par of 70.
The Old course is part of a two 18 hole course set up at the fantastic Dale Hill Resort.
With plenty of mature tree-lined fairways and well-placed hazards, this great little sister course to the Woosnam course is also part of the Dale Hill set up.
Our favourite hole would be the closing 18th which leads you back to the clubhouse and hotel. You have a real chance of making a birdie here if they manage to carry the left-hand bunkers from the tee with a good drive and a crisp approach shot.
Dale Hill Golf – The Ian Woosnam
The Ian Woosnam course opened for play in 1997 and is highly regarded as one of the leading courses in the South East of England. Once again set in stunning Sussex countryside, the Woosnam course has been constructed to high USGA specifications, and the greens are in perfect condition year-round.
The 6th hole is a cracker, a very good dogleg from right to left. It is important to take on the dogleg over the trees. Otherwise you are blocked out for your second shot, so no playing safe here. There is a good variety of holes on offer on the Woosnam course and scoring requires more than just hitting good drives from the tees, The course measures 6,500 yards with a par of 71 and requires accuracy and a good putting stroke want to walk away hitting handicap.
