Mannings Heath Sussex Golf Club Secrets

Secrets


Famous names

Gary Player included the 11th hole of the Waterfall Golf Course known as The Valley in his imaginary top 18 holes of golf in the world.

On 4th May 1987 Severiano Ballesteros, Sandy Lyle, Nick Faldo, Mark McNulty and Jose Maria Olazabal were competitors in the Pro-Celebrity Tournament which raised £160,000 for the Variety Club in a single day… a world-record amount at that time.


Full of history

Golf started around the town of Horsham in 1905 when a 9-hole golf course was built at Broadbridge Heath to the west of the town. The original course at Mannings Heath consisted of 18 holes and was laid out in 1914.


Famous links!

Our green fee only course, the Kingfisher has something in common with the world-famous Home of Golf, St Andrews. The 3rd and 15th holes on the Kingfisher use a shared kidney-shaped green as the Old Course does. 


War-time drama

We have an old propellor blade mounted on the wall above the open fireplace in the Clubhouse Lounge Bar. This is a tribute to the crew of the Halifax Bomber which crashed on the golf course on 17th February 1945. Come and take a look!


A moment in time!

An extract from Committee Minutes from August 1928 reads… “It was decided to reply to Golf Illustrated that this Committee were against the legislation of steel shafted clubs in this country.”… I wonder what the committee would make of all the very latest club technology today!


Intriguing history

Hawkins Pond, adjacent to the course, was named after the leader of a notorious gang of 18th Century smugglers who made their rendezvous, until they were caught and hanged.
