Picturesque course

Willingdon is a tree lined course and after 20 + years is maturing into a really picturesque joy, far from the farmers fields of years gone by. I would say the fairways are in the best condition since playing on and off for over 20+ years, although the green are not great, hopefully they will improve in the summer months. I am not sure where Golfnow (formerly TeeTimes) get there prices from as this course can be played at anytime for £20, there is a big sign outside promoting this offer.

Made to feel very welcome

We played after a night of heavy rain. Just a shame that we were not told about the many temporary greens.. We were made very welcome in the clubhouse, the bar staff were great, very friendly. We will return when it's a bit warmer and when the swine isn't blowing at over 50mph

Lovely course on outskirts of Eastbourne

I love this course. Always in good condition and a good variety of holes. It is a challenging walk and holes do criss cross so need to be awake! Noise also travels so were told to be quiet as someone was putting out on a green next to a fairway and we didn't know it was there!!

Very interesting course

Very interesting course with lots of variations. You have to be alert as a number of holes cross. Course was in good condition but greens a little hard.

Interesting

Well for for starters I must say it's a stunning course in a stunning location and a good test of golf ⛳, however that's where it ends.
I booked this round on tee times UK which offers good value golf at various locations around the country, this being one of them. So I thought 18 pound for a round at Willingdon was a great deal so I went ahead and a booked a 4 ball after confirmation from the club that they did use tee times UK for.bookings,great, 12,34 booking confirmed. So I was very surprised when I was called on the Friday morning before the Saturday to say my 1234 booking had been put back to 2'15. I said we can't do that because we have an evening arrangement. They then said the deal you saw on the net was for after 2'15. Hmmm then why are you communicating with this particular company who are offering these tee times.
After a long discussion they decided to honour it, which they had too really as I had paid for it but it was all a bit of a palava.
I didn't like the way they handled it or they're attitude so won t be going back
