CROW NEST PARK Golf Club at Hove Edge is among the top 10 best nine-hole clubs in the world – according to the March edition of Golf World magazine.
The Brighouse course has been chosen alongside other notable courses like Musselburgh Old, Scotland, Tobermory, Isle of Mull, and Dunes Club, Michigan.
“To be ranked in the same league as these other distinguished courses is a tremendous accolade for our club,” said general manager Les Holmes.
“It is seen as a tremendous achievement by both the management and members of Crow Nest, and is the result of many years of dedicated work by all the management and the staff at the club.
“We have always been proud of the standard and quality of our course and I encourage any local golfers to come down and sample what is now regarded as a truly unique nine-hole course which is the envy of many.”
Crow Nest Park was opened only as recently as 1995 following owner Richard Harrison’s decision to construct the course on land once owned by Sir Titus Salt.
It enjoys the benefit of many fine old trees which gives the landscape a much more mature feel than one would normally expect from such a young course.
Although nine holes, it does have the benefit of two tees to each hole, the dual system making the type of shot change significantly from the front nine to the back nine.
This latest accolade follows the course being named as the Best Yorkshire Course in 2007 by Yorkshire Express, and among the top 10 nine-hole courses in the UK in 2009, as published by the National Club Golfer and Lady Golfer magazine.
