The Clubhouse

The clubhouse was built in 1930 in mock Tudor style to enable easy conversion into a large country house in case the golf club failed! It has marvellous aspects all round and a particularly fine view of the Downs to the South.

Completely in keeping with the surrounding countryside, the clubhouse is very well appointed and comfortable. Since construction, it has changed very little other than by extensions added to provide new facilities and extra space, so internally it retains most of its traditional charm and presents an ideal environment in which to relax and enjoy convivial company and fine service.

The club has earned a longstanding reputation for providing food of the highest standards. Carefully selected professional chefs look after all club catering for members and societies, plus any special occasions arranged for members or for visitor groups.

The clubhouse provides formal dining in the galleried main dining room together with informal eating in the conservatory area, or in summer on the terrace overlooking the practice putting green, with fine views across the first and 18th holes.


West Sussex Golf Club - Dining Room


Dining Room

The dining room is the largest and best room in the clubhouse. Notable features are the high vaulted ceiling with oak beams and a standing gallery at one end. There is also a large inglenook fireplace where hangs, incongruously to some but much loved by others, a large original painting of a clipper ship by Claude Grahame Muncaster.

The dining room can be laid to any format but 92 persons is the largest number that can be accommodated and properly served when all are seated with full place settings.A typical range of general and created menus is shown opposite.


West Sussex Golf Club - Lounge



Whichever way you look at it, the lounge is at the very centre of the clubhouse. It houses the main bar, the main stairs and the largest seating area. It is the place where members formally meet and greet all who visit the club. It is a room which joins to every other, either directly or as a passageway. No architect would ever design a lounge like this, it has just happened over the years. Of all the rooms at the clubhouse, it is the one that members would trade for no other and, should you need an answer to the question, it's camaraderie would tell you what West Sussex is all about.


West Sussex Golf Club - Terrace



The terrace has an enviable position at the club. It is close to the old front entrance, with easy access to the bar for ordering drinks or food. It is also very easy to reach from the eighteenth green once the round completes, so a thirst quencher can be drunk or ordered directly en route to the clubhouse. Once seated, served and thoroughly relaxed, views of the two practice putting greens nearby, drives from the forward first tees and the vistas down the first and up the eighteenth add to the pleasure. Though north-west facing, the terrace gets any sunshine almost all day.


West Sussex Golf Club - Conservatory



The conservatory was built in 1993 to provide the much needed extra space demanded by trends towards more informality of seating and dining. In this, it has done it's job very well and continues to be much used today. From the outside, it looks much like any other conservatory of that era attached to an outside wall. However, the inside has a comfortable style that blends well with the main lounge and bar areas alongside. The conservatory is much the preferred place for informal dining and afternoon tea and at other times for peaceful reading and perhaps that rare contemplation alone.


West Sussex Golf Club - Members Room


Members Room

The members room is small, intimate and friendly. For most members it is still the place to meet both before and after games, or to mix generally and catch up with all the news, results and events. It is not just comfort that causes members to find it easier to take a seat here rather than eventually to rise out of it. It has much to do with the good fellowship which abounds. Missed putts, already forgiven by partners are soon forgotten here. If there is such a thing as a home from home, then the members room can become one, particularly in winter with a log fire set and a warming drink nearby.
