East Sussex National Golf Resort & Spa (West 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 West course is not quite as tough a challenge as the East course, but still provides a formidable work-out for your game.

There are a few additional trees around than on the more open East course, and some water in play to make things more challenging. Benefitting from good overall maintenance and green-keeping, the West is described by many members as their favourite of the two East Sussex layouts.
