The problems with Eastbourne Downs Golf Club are very regrettable.
It’s such a great course, the best locally in my opinion, and somewhere I learnt to play.
But, it has to pay its way, as does every other organisation in the town.
The Government in their wisdom has decided to stop funding local councils so the money for public services has to come from somewhere.
The club already gets a grant from the council; wouldn’t Willingdon GC and the Royal Eastbourne GC like one of those!
I hope it’s not the end of a wonderful venue, I hope someone steps in and runs it.
Perhaps an entrepreneur with some vision will come forward and make it work.
