- Crowborough Common
Crowborough Beacon Golf Club
I moved from Hertfordshire in January 2006 and joined CBGC during Audrey Payne’s year hoping to make a few friends to start our new life. Well… the greens were more difficult than my previous parkland ‘doddle’ although I came in at 20 handicap and have not moved around much since then. I now have a love/hate relationship with the course (hate the course but love the ladies). I hope it’s still that way round when I finish this year !!
No that’s not right ! I love the course with all its idiosyncrasies.
What a ladies section we have, all handicaps and abilities catered for and something for everyone from red or blue tee comps. to 9 holes for those just wishing a gentle mornings golf, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th division matches, ladies matches, mixed matches, winter league matches and everything in between. Of course with the club having been established in 1895 there are endless plates, cups and trophies to be won.
Socially, there is at least one evening of entertainment every month from star gazing to quiz’s, bridge and everything in between; lunches and dinners supplied by our wonderful catering staff headed by Richard and Michelle. Bar staff serving full members, ‘flexi’ members and ‘social’ members with a smile and then you take your drinks out onto the balcony and sit with some like-minded members and enjoy the views.
This surely is the best club in Sussex.
