3 reviews of Goodwood Park Hotel and Country Club
We stayed here as part of a golf weekend and have to say our impressions were mixed. There is no doubting the quality of the Downs Course but I played here many years ago and remember the general ambiance being somewhat more refined. Jeans on a golf course of this stature looks positively bizarre. Still a good course but not a place we'll be returning to or recommending.
There were four of us playing on a Sunday Escape. This represents good value for money. Due to the recent spell of hot weather, the fairways were parched, however the greens were not too bad.
There were few people out during our fist round on the Sunday, however on the Monday, we had an earlier tee time. We got stuck behind a fourball comprising of two elderly couples, who had to analyse every shot, all had to stroll to the "first" ball, then the "second".... instead of their own ball and putt out everything including 4 inch tiddlers. The 6 minute tee intervals didn't help.
However, it was a very enjoyable weekend. Hotel facilities are excellent and you are treated like like royalty. We are already discussing next year's trip.
Lovely condition. It was nice to have greens that actually stayed true to your put line, even with the hollow-tining. Shame about the overal design though. Tees are placed a lot of the time within an area of a mis-cued green approach shot. Several times we had to duck and wait for the thud when the shout of "FORE!" was heard. A little bit open in places, but the rough is quite thick to penalize. The 15th, 16th and 17th feel as if they were "bolt on attachments" to the rest of the course, and were not at all difficult. Maybe the 15th might have been from the back tees (they were back a long way), and how the 17th has a stroke index of 5 eludes me. The condition of the course more than makes up for it though, and being situated at the top of the South Downs and on flint it has exceptional drainage. Friendly staff.
