Golf may be replaced by glamping at Waterhall or Hollingbury following a proposed review of how the council uses the land.
A report publishes this week says since 2010 season ticket holder numbers have halved at both golf courses, which have been leased since 2010 on a ten-year contract by social enterprise Mytime Active.
The report going before next week’s meeting of the city council’s Tourism, Development and Culture committee asks councillors to consider future long-term leases for either golf or “other leisure use”.
One or both would kept as a golf course with the potential for other uses such as outdoor activity and education centres, camping, glamping, a country visitors centre, or an events venue.
A second option is for a ten-year management contract as currently operated, the third option is to operate both courses in-house, with a fourth possibility being to market both courses on a long-term lease for golf only.
The Tourism, Development and Culture Committee discusses the proposals when it meets at Hove Town Hall in public from 4pm on 20 June.

Councillors in Brighton and Hove are being asked to approve an extension of city council-funded youth projects after housing officials said they were helping curb anti-social behaviour among teenagers on council estates in the city.
Officers say there have been fewer complaints about youngsters at their regular meetings with residents since a series of projects were introduced across the city.
In a report to councillors, they say more than 2,000 young people have attended the ventures set up by organisations funded by the city council, visiting, on average, eight times.
They say the schemes, ranging from gaming to music sessions, skate parks to running a cafe, have boosted youngsters' confidence, established skills and knowledge and provided a rare opportunity for some teenagers to get out.
The children, young people and skills committee is being asked to extend youth contracts until the end of September 2020 to allow more time for recommissioning.
Almost half the youth services budget of £886,000 goes to the youth grants programme.
The housing and new homes committee is being asked to contribute another £125,000 to cover a six-month extension.
Vandals have caused thousands of pounds of damage to a footbridge across the River Adur - or have they?
Police and bridge owners West Sussex County Council are investigating the latest spate of damage to glass panels on the £10m Adur Ferry Bridge, which links Shoreham town centre with the beach.
The council says four panels, which cost about £1,000 each to repair, have been damaged in recent days.
Police are investigating reports of criminal damage by a group of youths, but the council wants to carry out tests to establish whether there was a recurrence of previous defects in the glass, which have been responsible for a number of previous similar incidents.
Investigations into a similar occurrence in 2014 established that impurities in the glass had caused some of the panels to shatter.
And a council spokesman said at least some of eight panels found damaged in January this year were the result of similar imperfections.
But the spokesman said the council would also be studying CCTV footage in case of other causes.
A Sussex Police spokesman said: "Officers attended and an area search was carried out. However, there was no trace of the suspects and there are currently no further lines of inquiry."
Heavy rain across the South East resulted in a number of call-outs for the fire service in East Sussex, including:
Weather warnings are expected to remain in place for much of the day, with forecasters predicting parts of the UK could be inundated during the rest of the week.

Recycling collections in East Sussex are set for changes from 28 June, with East Sussex residents no longer able to put Tetra Pak cartons in with their normal household collections.
At the same time, Hastings, Rother and Wealden residents will no longer be required to separate out glass, and will be able to mix it in with the rest of their recycling waste instead.
People living in Eastbourne and Lewes District will not be affected by the change to glass collections, but will be affected by the changes to Tetra Pak collections.

Hundreds more gay men will be able to get an HIV-preventing pill on the NHS in Brighton and Hove.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis or PrEP is available on a trial basis - but in many areas, including Brighton, the trial places quickly filled up.
In January, the NHS announced it would fund drugs for twice as many participants - but it falls to councils to pay for the sexual health appointments at which the trial participants sign up
There was a delay while discussions took place over who would pay for the extension.
Brighton and Hove City Councils lead commissioner for sexual health and HIV, Stephen Nicholson, told the BBC it has now agreed to fund more places on the trial itself.

People living on housing estates across Brighton and Hove are being asked to take part in an environmental improvement survey with any changes being funded with money allocated for land owned by Brighton and Hove City Council’s housing department.
Suggestions for improvements could include better recycling options, removing graffiti, putting in benches or play areas or organising community clean-ups.
The survey is open until 15 July and is due to be followed by public meetings with council officials and councillors in the community.
Some residents’ representatives have criticised the lack of publicity around the consultation when they spoke out at a series of housing panel meetings this week.

The taxi app Ola has been granted permission to operate in Brighton and Hove.
The company has been given a one-year operator’s licence by Brighton and Hove City Council.
Ola’s operations director Karl Lutzow told a council licensing panel that the company would only use local drivers.
He said that out-of-town drivers would be restricted to picking up two fares within 24 hours before going back to their own area.
Ola wanted a five-year licence but was granted one for one year only.
The council said that the shorter term was in “order to monitor their operation and the working of the memorandum of understanding”.
CCTV must be installed in all vehicles, whether operating as private hire vehicles or as taxis. All drivers would be self employed.
The app has a panic button for passengers and drivers.

Council officers and union officials have agreed to meet to try to avert a bin strike in Brighton.
GMB members had accused council officers of being “anti-trade union” and undermining their work at CityClean, the council’s refuse company.
In recent months, the city council said it has been trying to improve performance, safety and management culture at CityClean.
Both sides will now meet at conciliators Acas on 20 June.
Labour council leader Nancy Platts told BBC Sussex that both council officers and union members had her backing and she wanted an investigation into claims of anti-trade union activity.
A GMB member ballot on whether to strike over the issue will stay open for two weeks.
A series of bin strikes six years ago left rubbish piling up on the city’s streets – and was considered a key factor in the Green administration losing power in 2015.
