It is my very great honour to be the club captain for 2023/24. The Dyke Golf Club is amongst one of the very best golf courses in Sussex, a classic downland test with unsurpassed views of Brighton and Hove and out across the English Channel. You will find a welcoming club with a relaxed and progressive attitude to modern golf. The course itself never plays the same one day to the next, with the wind dictating club choice from hole to hole. We have well draining fairways and fast and true greens played all year round. I hope you enjoy your round and the welcoming staff and members are here to answer any questions you may have.
I’m delighted to be Lady Captain and very much looking forward to a year of enjoyment and everything that this fantastic golf club has to offer. We have a full and varied calendar with more events than ever open to a mixed field, and for those wanting more relaxed golfing there are plenty of opportunities to team up and play some fun golf competitions on Tuesdays and at the weekend. Our Saturday roll up continues to go from strength to strength, and our new golfing ladies are enjoying their learning journey with the support of their ‘buddies’. All year round, there’s lots on offer for everyone whatever you want out of your golf - come along, have a chat and find out more, we’re a very friendly welcoming bunch!
