Established in 1905, the 6683-yard championship 18-hole Waterfall course at Mannings Heath, is known as one of the top golf courses in Sussex. Designed by the legendary architect Harry Colt, the Waterfall holds a proud golfing heritage and remains one of the most famous golf courses in the United Kingdom. The great Seve Ballesteros drew huge crowds to Mannings Heath when he played a Pro-Am here in 1987. And Gary Player named the 11th hole, known as The Valley in his top imaginary 18 holes of the world.

The Waterfall is a scenic and challenging course that demands accuracy from the tee and presents a fair test of nerve and skill for every calibre of golfer. Take a tour of the Waterfall golf course, with hole-by-hole flyover videos.
