Council Takes Over Eastbourne Downs Golf Course

24 January 2018

Eastbourne Borough Council has taken over the running of Eastbourne Downs Golf Course.



Keeping business as usual, all of the staff at the golf course are now employed by the council and golfers can continue their existing membership at the same affordable membership rates, with new members welcome too.

The clubhouse, which features a function room for private bookings, parties, wakes and weddings, will also provide additional facilities for the Conference Eastbourne and Devonshire Park Catering portfolio, attracting new business to the town.

Located at the start of the South Downs National Park, the 110 year old golf course employs a club professional and offers mens, ladies, seniors and junior competitions as well as a well-stocked golf shop.

Eastbourne Borough Council Lead Cabinet Member for Tourism and Enterprise, Cllr Margaret Bannister said “This golf course has been popular in our local community and with visitors to the town for over a century and it’s easy to see why, with such stunning views across the Downs and over the town.”

“There are many opportunities and much potential to grow this sporting facility and its contribution to the town, from junior coaching and competitive events to days out for conference delegates and businesses planning corporate events.”

Annual membership to Eastbourne Downs Golf Course costs £695 per year, with green fees for non-members starting at just £15.
