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.



Most Helpful Review

Overated

Yes, this course is very well kept, has fast and true greens and offers great variety. However, having played both courses a handful of times, I would say that there are plenty of other courses locally that offer a much better experience for the money that you pay for a green fee here. Theres nothing special that you take away from the end of your round that is particularly memorable. Looking back at my round no holes stand out, just a load of quite long par 4's come to the front of my mind. I think the golf courses are massively hyped and feel that if either course stood alone as its own course and without the massive hotel, it would be a very average course. It felt to me that the only reason there is this hype about the course is that it has had a lot of money pumped into it.

This course feels very corporate and sadly doesn't reflect the beautiful countryside of East Sussex. One round here is fun and worth doing however I would urge you to look at other courses nearby especially Piltdown (a much more challenging, better kept and interesting golf course) and Lewes that offer a more personal and memorable round for a fraction of the price. - Aug 24 2017

Richard M rated 5 out of 5 - Aug 10 2018

Very nice - ideal for a stay over with golf!
enjoyed it very much. Only got to play the East course twice as West was shut. My playing partner summed it up (who plays off 6) as he concluded he will definitely be back but not just for the golf.....to stay over (great deal ?135 so twin room, excellent dinner and breakfast -great deal- use of spa/pool etc) so he sees the overall package as the value - not the golf on its own. The East course had some nice holes. some very unique like #1, 7, 10, 13, 16 and especially 17 is the standout hole. Greens are very fast. Too many downhill putts went racing past! :-) I'd definitely play it as a resort play/stay over

quality with a lack of class
My friends and I have been going to this complex for the last 7 years and always enjoyed it. This year seemed to be going the same way as the last 6 when we played the East course on the Saturday which was in great condition. We used the hotel facilities to relax after a few beers and all seemed fine. The food in the evening was nice, then after a few more beers we went to bed dreaming of what might have been and what we hoped for on the Sunday.
After a buffet breakfast we headed to the pro shop to get tokens and score cards for the West course. After a good warm up we headed for the first tee. The starter said their had been some maintenance in the week but did not know what they had done. After some good tee shots we got to the 1st green where it become apparent what the maintenance had been, they had aerated the greens, IN AUGUST!!!! This was a complete shock and with no advanced warning, very annoying. Their was no email, no warning from the pro shop and no warning from the starter although their was a hint. After the round I approached the pro shop and asked why we had not been told, to say the member of staff I spoke to need some customer training skills is an understatement. All of us were very down after this and it truly spoilt what otherwise was a great weekend. I would advise anyone going their to check their maintenance program before you go

Great Course
Course was in great condition despite the dry weather. The greens were receptive if you were brave enough to pitch to them.

A great layout, watchout for the penal rough though!
Quite open for the most part, but hard to find your ball if you hit it in the deep rough. Fairways were in good condition for the time of year and the greens held a correct approach shot.

Worth a visit
Considering the weather of late the course played well and was in good condition with no temporary greens, albeit mats were in use at the T boxes. Only disappointment was some signs of dog walkers not bagging up.

Stay and play
The fairways and greens were pretty good considering the rain we’d had and the time of year (quite impressive really), elsewhere it was very soft and hard walking. We stayed and played and got a great deal, there was a little doubt whether we’d get out on the second day and a miserable marshal could have done with an exercise in guest relations as to manage expectations but we did play and conditions were better than day one. Worth a visit but I’d suggest a stay and play package to ensure value.

Weekend Away
Twice a year we get away for a weekends golf this time East Sussex was chosen. We had a package deal that was good value and got to play the West on the Friday and then The East on Saturday and Sunday. Both courses are really good my only slight gripe is that the guest tees are quite far forward and make the course a lot easier than even if you could play off the members tees but still a good challenge. When you look at the pro tees it makes you appreciate how far those boys can hit a ball, from the very back it is a monster.
