Having visited South Lodge Hotel and Manning’s Heath Golf Club this weekend I had such a fantastic time I would like to share it with you.
Given the time of year the golf courses at Manning’s Heath were in fairly good condition. We played the Waterfall on our first day which is currently undergoing some development work however this did not affect our experience. It superbly laid out and is a very good test for all standards of golfer. The greens were true and given the recent weather I was very impressed.
The Kingfisher was taken on our day of departure and was perfect after a few too many beers the night before. After climbing the hill on the first fairway the next few holes were flatter but still a good challenge. Again the greens were true and I imagine that when the warmer weather comes it could yield some very low scores.
The clubhouse is grand and overlooks the Waterfall Course. The bar staff were welcoming and friendly, and price of a pint was comparable to our local pub.
The hotel is one of the best I have stayed in. From the moment we checked in we were very well looked after by all the staff. Our room was on the second floor and overlooked the grounds to the rear of the property. The TV in the bathroom was a real bonus as it meant I didn’t miss a moment of Martin Kaymer’s tee shot that began his 66 to win the Abu Dhabi Championship.
Coming from South London it was very easy to find. It was only 5 minutes from the other side of Horsham and was clearly signposted.
I cannot fault my experience at South Lodge or the Golf at Manning’s Heath. I have to rate this trip 9.5/10 and can’t wait to return in the summer when the course is a little drier to give it full marks! Your service and efficiency when dealing with my booking was also faultless and I will certainly be in touch to revisit in July.
