            The 18th             

The 18th Tee (Yellow) at Lewes Gof Course with stunning views of the historic town of Lewes behind.

Pro Tips

Aim at the Pro shop from the tee as the ball will fall to the right. The approach shot needs to land left of the bunkers that sit about 20 yards short of the green. The ball will feed onto the green from there. If the flag is on the top don’t miss it left of the green trying to get the ball close, many shots have been wasted trying to do so. Play to the bottom tier and concentrate on 2 putting.

The Racecourse

On the 18th you can still see the sweep of the racecourse. Horse racing at Lewes can be traced back to the 17th century. Before the arrival of the railway horses would walk from their stables and it is reported that four horses once walked from Wales. The race days were great events much loved by the nobility and King George IV, whilst Prince of Wales, was a regular visitor in the early 19th century. Lester Piggott rode winners on the course in 1950. Sadly the course had no running water, electricity, or gas and the last race was held in 1964
