The Dyke Golf Club is situated only 4 miles from the centre of Brighton and is easily reached from the A23 and A27 and all major routes to Brighton.
We are one of the premier downland courses in Sussex and one of the oldest in the area, having been founded in 1906. The present course, which was rebuilt after World War II, is modern and provides a good challenge for all levels of player.
The 6627 yard Par 72 course is set on chalk downs that provide excellent drainage throughout the year and makes it a 'course for all seasons'. The course is some 650 feet above sea level and provides spectacular views over the South Downs to the City of Brighton & Hove to the south and east, and further afield to the cliffs of Newhaven and Seaford. To the south and west there are views of Shoreham and Worthing and a clear day brings the Isle of Wight and the Solent into view. The latest clubhouse was built in 1985 and provides a full range of facilities including a restaurant that affords visitors good food and views of the course and the city and coast beyond.
The Dyke provides a first class test of golf, measuring some 6627 yards from the tournament tees, 6300 yards from the visitors' tees and 5537 yards from the ladies' tees. As with most downland courses, the degree of difficulty varies according to the strength and direction of the wind. With a stiff sea breeze blowing up from the Channel, the wide fairways often seem narrow and the strategically placed bunkers play their part.
Among the attractive points of the layout of the course is the contrast between the long hard-hitting holes on the western side of the ridge and the holes of a more adventurous type on the eastern side. Among the latter are three of the four short holes; all three are first class. The fifth and seventeenth especially are holes that will remain in the memory of every golfer that plays them.
