Where2Golf says: 

Seaford Golf Club: Set a mile or so inland from Seaford itself, this very pleasant downland golf course offers picturesque views across to the English Channel and, in the other direction, the rolling landscape of the South Downs. Apart from a slight climb at the first and eigtheenth holes, most of the course is relatively easy to walk. The fairways are generous enough, not too heavily bunkered, with rough that's not too punishing either; in many ways a course that is nicely set-up for big-hitters and course management strategists alike. The environment is quite open for much of the round, although at the start and finish there are some tightish drives to make, with gorse and small trees awaiting stray drives. The 17th, played in the direction of a wonderful old barn, and the 18th across a dip in the ground provide the most testing tee shots. All in all a very good course with lovely scenery to take in on your way round.

Did you know?

Also in Seaford, and set above chalk cliffs rising from the sea, is the former home of Seaford Golf Club, and now home to Seaford Head Golf Club. Seaford Head is very much in view from Seaford GC, perched as it is on the cliffs between Newhaven and Cuckmere Haven. If you are in the area it is also well worth playing, and has an 18th tee-box that commands one of the finest views in golf - anywhere.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.
Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
