Highly Recommended 2018

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.

Disappointed

Looks impressive on arrival. Main hotel great and rooms superb lounge and bar did feel like waiting in an airport. Meals were good quality but lack of choice. Played both course. First day championship east. Thought condition of fairways and greens very poor. We were told to play pick and place. Off white tees not really that difficult. Expected more. Second day played west course. Far superior and a lot harder. Course in better nick but not perfect. Greens not very slick. Really need to play this 18 couple times. Course management vital playing these holes. Due to COVID bunkers were poor and some were GUR. East Sussex has a good reputation so I expected higher standards so overall disappointed

Brilliant Course

Finally got to play at East Sussex National yesterday & wasn?t disappointed. We played the East course & it was challenging but a fun course to play. Greens were in very good condition & it was nice to see green fairways as well. I think the rain the day before really helped to slow the course down a bit. Had a pint in the hotel afterwards & sat in the evening sun. Will be back somewhen to play the west course.

Great layout unfortunately due to hot weather course was very dry with mud and dust patches all over the place - disappointing considering the sprinkler system they have but don?t consistently use - I would like to think this was down to restrictions on water use but that wasn?t shared with us and for a premium location/facility you would expect them to have their own water supply from wells or capture systems

EuroPro Tour - East Sussex National - Simply Glorious

What a gem - not expensive as golf goes on championship courses, and when I say championship, it is used on the Euro Pro Tour. Both East and West courses are magnificent and to just walk back to the gold tees [Tour] the holes are immense to look down. A solid challenge of the whites [Blues a little further back change the course again but are Member Tees. Beautifully maintained, quick undulating greens, but I would say its setup is a challenge, but if you play a good shot, it is not punishing if its not 100% "on it". The East course [the tour course] has more hardships in terms of false fronts, run-offs, smaller greens in general and some severe bunkers green side. But a really enjoyable setup and a fantastic venue also.

Greens were very good and consistent, most of the fairways were good but a couple were patchy. Pace of play was good. The ground staff need to be more aware of what's going on as a couple of times the either were oblivious to us on the course or didn't care.

Getting There

Lots of work has been done since the rains and bad weather we have had over the winter, this along with our current situation has been challenging for all. played there twice so far East and West and can only compliment the staff on all the work they have done to date.
