Life on the wild side at Pyecombe Golf Course
People, particularly non golfers, often believe that as golf courses are a man made environment they will be relatively barren of wild life! Observant golfers will be well aware that this is far from the truth. Pyecombe, being nestled in the Downs, has a wide range of wildlife around the course. This is in part owing to the diverse range of the local landscape that includes untrammeled wood, meadow grasses and dewponds. Much of this wildlife is actively encouraged by the members and by the greenkeepers who are especially careful to ensure that the wildlife is encouraged to stay and bloom at Pyecombe. In fact much work has been done to encourage wild flowers including introducing bumblebee hives. Pyecombe is home to a variety of less common plants including an unusual non cultivar lime tolerant heather.
