A scene on the East Brighton golf course, which is perched on the Downs, overlooking the town. Playing his shot is the club's professional golfer, Charles Parsons, who has been with the club for 36 years. According to the original caption, he has been professional champion of Sussex five times and is the only man alive who has hit 18 holes in one. In the foreground is Charles Morris, the captain of the club, who is described in the original caption as "shipbuilder, inventor and engineer, a well known Brighton sportsman and citizen". In the background, two local bus drivers can be seen playing a round before they begin work.
