Welcome to Rye Golf Club, a prestigious members club nestled on Camber Road, Camber, Rye. This private haven boasts not one, but two exquisite courses - the Old and Jubilee. These beautiful links courses are situated on the scenic south coast of England and offer a captivating golfing experience.
The club's roots date back to 1893 when the first competition was held. H.S. Colt, one of the founding members, was elected as the first Captain and subsequently designed 18 holes in 1895, forming the now iconic permanent course. His genius as a golf course designer was recognized, paving the way for his illustrious career.
The Old Course, comprising two nine-hole loops to the east and west of the Clubhouse, exudes an intimate charm rarely found in traditional links. Covering a modest 6,500 yards off the "blue" tees, this deceptively challenging course boasts a par of 68, with just two par fours measuring under 435 yards - all while battling the relentless crosswinds. The highlight of Rye's allure lies in its five short holes, frequently deemed as some of the most demanding shots on the course.
In 1977, the Jubilee Course emerged, occupying land once swallowed by the receding sea. It started as a 9-hole course, but with thoughtful development and re-routing over the years, it now boasts 12 holes, providing golfers with an exceptional alternative to the Old Course.
Beyond the breathtaking greens, Rye Golf Club offers a well-equipped Clubhouse with a bar, restaurant, and visitor lockers. For all your golfing needs, turn to their Pro Shop Services, guided by the expertise of Professional Matthew Holland. The Pro Shop provides tuition, equipment, trolley hire, electric trolley hire, and caddy hire, ensuring you have everything you need for an unforgettable golfing experience at Rye Golf Club.
