Golf in Sussex

Sussex is a historic county in South East England and although it has a long coastline, strangely enough it does not have a lot of links courses. Sussex is home to quaint, historic villages, stunning coastline and gently rolling inland hills. Sussex is great for golf as this coastal county is the sunniest place in the United Kingdom. Established in 1887, Brighton & Hove Golf Club is the oldest golf club in Sussex. Its a 9-hole downland-links course with 18 tees.
