Opening times The Pavilion and The Shop Hours vary in summer and winter depending on daylight, but in general: Summer Weekdays 8am - 7pm Weekends 7am - 6pm Winter Weekends and weekdays 8am - 4pm The Cafe Weekdays: 9am - 3pm Weekends 9am - 3.30pm The Park and Golf Course The park is open 24 hours a day 365 days a year The golf course is open every day apart from Christmas Day (and occasionally Boxing Day too depending on what day of the week it falls). It is open when the shop is open and play can continue after the shop has closed, provided the fee has been paid before closing time. Gates and Parking All pedestrian gates are never locked, with the exception of the gate between the car park and main drive at Lightwoods Hill. This is locked when the Pavilion closes (see above for times). At the same time our vehicle gate at Lightwoods Hill is put onto auto. This means you can still exit the car park after this time, but you cannot enter. The car park opens when groundstaff arrive on site - this could be as early as 6am. If it is light in the morning it is probably already open! For your information: Some older maps show parking within the park off Abbey Road but this is no longer available although there is on street parking on all sides of the side.
