Nevada, United States: Pacific Links International has entered into a reciprocal club partnership with The Goodwood Club in Chichester, West Sussex, England.
The club sits on the sprawling Goodwood Estate which has been home to the Dukes of Richmond & Lennox for 300 years. The Goodwood is the latest high-end club to join Pacific Links’ growing roster of more than 400 of the finest golf courses in the world, spreading throughout 25 countries on six continents.
“The Goodwood is an incredible property, offering not only great golf, but an impressive variety of activities and accommodations,” said Bruce Simmonds, Chief Executive Officer of Pacific Links International, a Full Business Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation.
“This partnership will allow our international members to access to a truly luxurious ‘stay and play’ experience.”
Located 90 minutes by train south of London and close to Southampton, The Goodwood offers a wide array of amenities, including two golf courses. The Downs, designed by James Braid, is often referred to as ‘the best downland course in the UK’ and was one of the first golf courses in Sussex.
The 7,104-yard course features running fairways, undulating greens and dramatic elevation changes.
Designed by renowned golf architect and player Donald Steel, The Park Course is open to the public and enjoyable for golfers of all skill levels. The easy walking 6,650-yard course follows a route through tree-lined fairways to small, demanding greens.
The Goodwood’s private member’s club, The Kennels, is the central clubhouse for all of the Estate’s sporting and social members. Designed with modern comfortable interiors, The Kennels offers a variety of fine dining options and meeting space.
The Goodwood House and its grounds include a circuit motorsport track, horse racing track, an aviation centre, cricket club, health club, luxury hotel and a variety of social and dining opportunities.

Members enjoy more variety, flexibility and a wider range of membership categories and prices than traditional golf memberships.
