East Sussex National Golf Resort & Spa (East course)

4-star: Above average course - well worth a visit.

Est. 1990

East Sussex National Golf Resort & Spa (East course): Here on the edge of the South Downs is a relatively new golf complex, boasting two fine championship courses, as well as a modern resort hotel and spa. The East course is arguably the better of the two championship layouts; a tough test for golfers of all levels.

The open parkland landscape may encourage big-hitting from the tee, but its best to stay away from the long grassy rough, from which golf balls may never be seen again. Your short game skills will also be thoroughly tested, not least on the often fast and tricky greens, many of them home to extravagant undulations. With pleasant rural countryside all around, as well as excellent practice facilities, this is a terrific venue for a golfing day out or a relaxing Stay & Play golfing break.

Latest Golf Course Reviews

Traigh Golf Course (pronounced "try", and meaning "beach" in Gaelic): You'll find this nine-hole seaside gem on the scenic coast road (as opposed to the more inland and quicker A830) between Arisaig and Morar. Although not on the well-beaten path of Scotland's "trophy" courses, if you are passing through this area, it's a must play.
