Get the very best tuition from our teaching pros

If you are just starting out or simply need to hone your game our professionals are here to help you!

Here at Royal Ashdown Forest Golf Club, we want all who come to play golf to get the most out of their game. Here you’ll find everything you need – if it’s a practice area for a little putting practice on your own —  or full-blown instruction from a professional who can teach you everything from the basics to honing your existing game.

The practice ground is available for members, visiting golfers and those taking lessons from our pros; the driving range is not open to the general public.

Our practice range is approximately 300 yards, with 10 tee boxes of Astroturf mats. We also have a practice chipping-green and two practice putting-greens.

We’re in the process of applying for planning permission for two covered bays on the practice ground so that the pros can teach when the weather isn’t kind, but this will still form part of the main practice area. Since Ashdown Forest is governed by an Act of Parliament, permission must be granted for any man-made constructions. This is why there are no bunkers on either course.

Our two PGA qualified professionals, head pro Tim and senior assistant pro, Sam Cowley, are on hand to help improve your game or simply you started with your first lesson.

The Royal Ashdown Forest performance centre opened on Sunday 7th December 2014. The GC2 Smart Camera System from Foresight Sports Displays is the ultimate in golf simulators offering everything from swing analysis, gauging exactly the right sort of clubs and ball you should be playing, to providing complete virtual rounds on some of the world’s finest golf courses including Carnoustie, Hazeltine National and Royal Birkdale. You can see a video about it here. 

The system is the only complete performance centre of its type available in East Sussex. Prices range from £20 for a practice session to £170 for a four hour round of golf for up to four players. So when the weather is vile outside or when both courses are closed there is absolutely no need to miss out on your golf.

Our Junior Section is open to all sons and daughters of members and any other youngsters whose family know a full member willing to propose them.

We firmly believe that youngsters play a crucial role in the furthering of the great game of golf, and encourage all to participate.

We have an active program in the school holidays with a key feature being the group coaching, which is given by the Professional and is well-attended.

Royal Ashdown also arranges events for all ages, which include matches with the junior sections of other Clubs. Adult/Junior competitions within the Club are also arranged for those with handicaps; those without have their own events.

Our head professional, Tim Cowley, and his brother, head-assistant pro Sam, can help you get the most out of your game.
