Historic Roots

Designed by the legendary F E (Fred) Hawtree, Hill Barn Golf Club has a long and enviable history. Since 1935, the course's rolling fairways have hosted many professional tournaments; been graced by names such as Peter Alliss and Tony Jacklin; and have provided the perfect challenge to all golfers from juniors to scratch players.

New Beginnings

Now privately owned, Hill Barn Golf Club is on par to return to being one of the best loved courses in the area with facilities that are second to none. The course benfits from a chalk and flint base which drains well to ensure play all year round. This, together with a substantial monetary investment, means the new beginning has only just begun.

Spectacular Views

Hill Barn Golf Club nestles in the rolling hills of the South Downs providing sweeping views of the town of Worthing to the south and of the English Channel on the southern horizon. A number of holes have elevated tees providing the golfer with an excellent opportunity to stop and admire the panorama before playing to the fairway below. Hill Barn is certainly one of the most beautiful places to play golf in Sussex.

11th Hole - Par 3

Challenging Course

At 5717 yards off the ladies tees the course provides challenges and surprises for players of all levels as it undulates through a good balance of par 3s and par 4s of which no two are alike. The signature hole on the 11th has a cunningly placed array of bunkers set into the hillside but an accurate tee shot is rewarded by an excellent chance of a birdie. Bordered by mature trees and hedgerows, the course culminates in a par 5 worthy of a championship course.

The Club's key attractions lie in its established and challenging course, its friendly membership and its heritage dating back to the 1930's as illustrated by the honours boards in the lobby and locker room.

History of Inclusivity
