What the club says: Both our championship courses were designed by Robert E Cupp, one of Jack Nicklaus’s course architects. The East Course was specifically designed with championship golf in mind. Measuring 7138 yards from the gold tees, this is a formidable test of golf. Unlike the West, the East has two loops of nine holes bringing you back to the Clubhouse after each nine. The West Course was formally known as ‘The Members Course’,and is often regarded as the more scenic of the two courses, but is certainly tighter and more undulating. Surprisingly at 7154 yards it is slightly longer than the East.

Two Day Stay

First visit here and really impressed by whole set up. Played West on Sunday and the East on Monday. Condition of both courses fantastic even though some bunkers flooded from Friday. Testing greens. Nice rooms and great food. So great value overall. Would definitely return.

So quiet - Its a shame - Great course

Played the West course at ESN , the old members course. In great fettle. Green super slick and conditions just perfect, which is more than can said about my game!!!! The 2nd cut of rough has been cut back so not as brutal as the last time I played. A very good test with plenty of interesing holes. My colleague compared it to the PGA at Belfry and had to agree after 2nd hole. Well worth waiting till twilight rates kick in.

Lovely course with some challenging holes

Had to abandon the round at 6th on previous day due to course being closed due to heavy rain which persisted all day/evening but you would not believe it as course was dry with no standing water next morning.

Really enjoyable round with some interesting holes, although some bunkers were GUR.

Shout out to the caddie team who looked after our clubs,bags, trolley's during our stay.

Just played 5 rounds over both courses. Condition is a real issue, especially the greens. Very poor. We were told to play off the whites which makes the courses very boring. A much better test for the average golfer off the blues. We were allowed to use these one day but told not to the next. Apparently some members had complained. Could be a great venue if course condition was better and members / management were a little more accommodating to paying visitors.

Nice course, shame about the wind!

Nice golf course, although the greens were very slow after some green repair work. Very friendly guys around the pro shop and buggy area.

We played sun 7th april and the greens on both courses are very scrabby....and the fairways pretty poor as well. sad as its been let go from when we played it a couple of years ago ...the east course is extremely boring. the west is a lot more fun and great holes in fairness but conditioning is not good. i play a lot in sussex and its been a hard winter for lots of courses but most are better looked after and turning good now this is not the case here. pro shop has great stock .

Not in best condition

Despite a mild winter the course was not in best of condition. Some tees rough, some fairways soggy, all greens bumpy and some with moss infestation. Bit like the curates egg - good in parts.

West is best?

I only got to play the West course, as the East Course was shut.
A really nice course, well laid out with some challenging holes & a bit of water.
Check out the 10th, a good drive down past the trees leaves you a challenging approach over water.
The course was in great condition, the greens superb & the hotel was excellent as well.
All in all a great package.

Quality championship course

Excellent layout. Long but with generous fairways. Challenging green complexes with plenty of bunkering and large undulating greens. Need to drive and putt well!
