East Sussex National Golf Resort & Spa (East course): Here on the edge of the South Downs is a modern golf complex that boasts two fine championship courses, as well as a 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.

Stay & Play at East Sussex National: luxury onsite accommodation available, see Where2Stay section below.
