Rustington Golf Centre has been open and welcoming golfers since 1992. We aim to ensure golf is a game for everyone, by creating a relaxed, fun and friendly atmosphere with affordable prices to all our facilities.
Eco conscious golf centre
In 2018 Rustington Golf Centre decided to make the Golf Course more environmentally sustainable. The goal is to greatly reduce our Pesticide inputs by introducing a more biological approach, and using more cultural practices on the course. By doing this it will help encourage soil microorganisms to thrive and help fight disease naturally and also help breakdown Organic Matter naturally, it will in time stop our need to Hollow Core or Scarify meaning less surface disruption in the Spring and Autumn.
Some of the main reasons we at Rustington Golf Centre decided to take this route is to do our part in helping reduce Climate Change, and reduce turf diseases. With the effective chemical being banned and ineffective new chemicals being introduced it is imperitive we take measures to protect the course.
Encouraging Biology in the soil will encourage finer grasses naturally meaning better playing surfaces all year around. A tea spoon of heathy soil contains around 4 billion soil microorganisms.
The land that is now known as Rustington Golf Centre has been in the ownership of the Langmead family for over 40 years. Construction of the main building and driving range commenced in 1991 and was completed and opened to the public on the 25th of August 1992 by Gary Evans and the late Josh Gifford. The par 27 nine hole course opened to the public in 1993 and two years later the nine hole 18 tee par 70 course, the academy course and the putting green were opened to the public on the 14th of July 1995 by the late Sir Henry Cooper.
The professional store was extended to 3000 sq ft and opened to the public in Spring 2006. In 2013 the store franchise was awarded to American Golf.
The course was designed by David Williams who is renowned for his great accuracy and precision. We are situated just on the outskirts of Rustington right on the A259, making us very easily accessible. It is a parkland golf course with exceptional features and course conditions making it a great test of golf. It is a 9 hole course with two sets of tees ensuring you never feel like you’re playing the same hole twice. With a driving range fitted with Powertees and Toptracers, a Par 3 course, Academy, and Par 70, we are one of the most versatile golf Centres in Sussex.
We were in awe of the course condition, bunkers were pristine and the greens were playing like summer green! The fairways were shaped very well and we came off with hardly a spec of mud on our trousers"! We will definitely be returning again for happy hour on the driving range!
