While the Kinsfisher Course has delighted visiting golfers since its inception in 1996, it is the Waterfall Course that established Mannings Heath as one of England's top clubs.
Carving its way through an inherently English woodland landscape, the Waterfall Course may only measure 6,683 yards from the tips but many of the holes are supremely testing, with accuracy from the tee being of paramount importance. The Waterfall course offers a heady blend of parkland and heathland golf and many of its tree-lined fairways provide a wonderful feeling of seclusion, making your round here all the more atmospheric and peaceful.
A particular highlight of the course and arguably the signature hole is the par 3 5th. Aptly named Punchbowl, the tee shot plays to a green far below the level of the tee, set in, well, a punchbowl. This is one of the most interesting holes in Sussex and signals the start of a fine run of holes.
When the Kingfisher Course was added to the Mannings Heath golf portfolio, the resort instantly became one of the finest stay and play venues in the region, thanks to the addition of more quantity to the already existing quality. The round consists of 2 rounds of the same 9-hole loop.
Despite its relative youth, the Kingfisher, which tracks the shoreline of Hawkins Pond, feels remarkably mature, owing much to the tremendous land that it shares with the Waterfall Course. Built to USGA specification, The Kingfisher is normally in excellent condition throughout the year and with two-nine hole rounds, it stretches out to a length of 6,628 yards, offering an excellent and dynamic test of golf to a great variety of players.
As well as 27 entertaining holes of golf, Mannings Heath also boasts fine practice facilities, featuring a driving range, two practice putting greens and a superb indoor tuition centre.
