Hassocks golf course
Nice course very dry greens had been spiked recently hard to putt a straight line
Probably the main reason to play here is the cost. Nowhere is cheaper but, truth be told, it is not a great course. Some decent holes but can be a bit samey. Greens not in great shape today and overall (eg tee boxes) it’s looking a little shabby
Friendly conditions and staff
Our group of three played this course in the middle of one of the hottest days for years and after a two month drought. Yet the course is in very good shape. When damp it can get a bit boggy but when dry it rewards straight hitting and good course management
Tee times aren’t tee times!
Horrendously slow pace! Gave up on 3rd hole. No way there is a 10 minute gap between each tee time. The sign walking up to 1st tee stated that the first 9 holes should take under 2 hours and there is no way that would have happened. Awful experience! Best part of trip was walk back to clubhouse waiting 15 mins for 4 ball to reach the 150 yard green off the tee. It’s unbelievable?!
Good round, only back 9 open due to a waterlogged course
What a beautiful day,the greens were beautiful but the fairways and in-between were boggy, such a shame but I guess you can’t expect much better when you build on clay.
Good course in very good condition, there was a problem with the greens last time I played here but they were in tip top condition this time. Course is in very good condition all round, also the putting green which is just outside the clubhouse. Didn't use any of the clubhouse facilities so cannot comment. Very good value at £15 per round.
Challenging but fun and well prepared course
This was the first time that my playing partner and I had played this course. We were a two ball playing on a Friday morning. Course was quiet so no pressure on time. The holes are good fun, though the hole maps at each tee were not in great condition so it was often hard to work out where you could aim. I reckon I would easily be 5 shots better off second time round through course knowledge. The course has a challenging start (SI3 and SI1 in the first three holes). All tees, fairways and greens were in very good condition. The clover in the rough punishes inaccuracy off the tee! I would definitely play here again.
This was the first time we played this course. I do not play regularly and found it very interesting. My only minor criticism is that there are no directions to the next tee and some tees did not have the number on them. Not enough to stop me booking again next week!
Best condition greens i have played on for,a while, bunkers were flooded but there had been quite a storm after election.
Having played the course a number of times it was in very nice condition, BUT had a pair of young lads behind that had no course manners 3 times yes 3 times I had their drive or second shot land close and on one occasions, one of them hit a shot over a very thick and high dividing area of wood/scrubs and did not say a word. Made me speed up which I did not like, but nothing to do with the course or staff.
Shame About the Mower
Nice course and would defintely play it again. There are sufficient shorter holes to give high handicappers like me a chance of reaching par fours in two, with one or two really difficult holes and some that you have play for position. It was only spoiled by the fact their large mower was apparently broken. This left the semi rough with deep clover resulting in myself and my playing partner losing about three balls each when they should have been easily found. Hopefully the mower will be repaired soon. The only other minor fault was the lack of direction signs as the path to the next tee was not always that obvious.
short course with narrow fairways
Hassocks is a short course but quite narrow so you need to be able to hit straight!- plenty of bunkers and water to keep you occupied! The greens are in very good condition. Unfortunately, the weather let us down and we came off after 14holes - however more importantly I had already thrashed my brother 6 and 5 !!
