I'm quite fortunate to be able to play so many quality layouts and Pulborough is one of my favourite courses so I maybe a little bias, but the West Sussex is exceptional. Sure there are some drawbacks which let me get out of the way first; for an inland course it is quite remote and a bit of an effort to get to from London. Its not a big club and a few years ago it lost its conditions, plus in the summer it lacks fairway watering. The iconic 6th is a weird par 3/4 where you have to hit a wood into a sloping green heavily protected by heather, water features on 14/15 which feel a tad incongruous. Some of the fairways are small and lack definition, occasionally you have to play over what seems a fairway for a neighbouring hole. The pluses are numerous, every visit is greeted by an oasis set in the middle of the Sussex countryside, and you will rarely see another group. A classic layout, lots of variety and character, American style bunkering, large, asymmetrical and shaggy in appearance, a thinker's course where you occasionally have to shape it off the tee, and asks you to plot your way round. The greens can be a menace too, quick and undulating. But have a good day and you can go deep. A beautiful setting in the middle of the Sussex countrywide which a peach of a view from the clubhouse overlooking the 1st and 18th fairways.
