Holtye is a pretty, nine-hole course that you underestimate at your peril. With trees lining the fairways, patches of heather lying in wait, a smattering of bunkers and unusual ditch-like features created long ago when trees were hauled out of the forest to build ships, there are plenty of problems to challenge players on this appealing heathland course.<br/> Slightly disconcerting, the opening hole runs alongside a public road but only a prodigious hook off the first tee could threaten the traffic. Thereafter you disappear into the woods and the rest of the round is comparatively quiet.<br/> The author A. A. Milne, famous for his Winnie-the-Pooh stories, was a frequent visitor with his son Christopher (Christopher Robin). And there’s a rumour that Sir Winston Churchill played here. Whether the former Prime Minister did in fact tee it up is open to doubt but what is certain is the club was founded in 1893.<br/> Fast draining, well maintained and with plenty of elevation, Holtye offers what might well be the best golfing bargain in the whole of Sussex. After midday on weekdays, the green fee for nine holes is an extremely reasonable £10 ($15), while 18 holes (there are slightly different tees on the back nine) is a barely believable £14 ($21).
