Crowborough Common - The Official Site

Crowborough Common
The Official Site



The rich political and human history of Crowborough Common dates back to William the Conquerer with records of such available in the Domesday Book of 1086. In more recent history, the late Victorian era to be specific, golf became increasingly popular as a healthy recreational and social past time and during this period, in 1895, the Golf Club was formed.

Crowborough was considered rather like a Spa Town where people journeyed to take the Water but in this case to take fresh air and exercise by way of playing golf. Records of the Club show golfers alighting at the Station and taking a pony and trap to the golf links for the sum of 1/9d.

Below are various sections which will take you further into the Club’s history.
