The Dyke golf course was created in 1906 and is perched at 650 feet, high on the Sussex Downs, now part of the South Downs National Park. Overlooking Brighton, there are spectacular views out across the English Channel towards the Isle of Wight, with the rolling hills of the South Downs stretching for many miles.
Originally constructed by the club professional in consultation with the leading course designer of the time James Braid, the current layout was rebuilt after the war since the land was used as a wartime tank training ground. The ‘new’ course, designed by Fred Hawtree, is much longer than the pre-war version and is a first class test of golf, measuring 6,653 yards off the white tees and 5,521 yards off the red tees. At par 72, course offers challenges throughout the seasons, with fast downland greens and sea breezes presenting constantly changing conditions.
Fast draining and playable all year round, Dyke Golf Club is 4 miles from Brighton and just a few minutes from the A23 and A27. We welcome new members and visitors, to find out more click the links below.
