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.

By far and away the better course of the 2 at the same venue. 15 great holes with the pick being the ones across (under) the road. Wonderful mature oak trees line most holes with water hazards used very well on a number. Great club house facilities with the history of European opens held there adding to the atmosphere. Bag drop off / pick up cleaning service a nice touch. Will definitely return as soon as possible.

Always a good place to play - Generally good condition but my only criticism is there were a great deal of divots all over the course which if the players are not going to replace than the green staff certainly should.

Top course and facilities, only down fall was a bit of a poor greeting at bag drop where the guy told us what we cant do, almost told us off, rather then a nice warming welcome which you'd expect. Other then that both courses really nice.

Played East and West courses on golf day, both quite different but both superb. East course gives slightly larger landing areas and more 'stadium' feel. Buggy recommended!

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

Always a challenge

Played the West Course which, as ever, was in good condition. Don't stray from the fairway or semi, as you will have a lost ball. No chance of finding it in 3 minutes.

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 .

Just a stunning course, can't say much more than that. Could have done with a few marshals as round was slow - tee times doubled up on.

Very nice courses, East & West. Can play very long off the back tees. If you enter the rough play another ball as you will be lucky to find the first one.

As only played this course twice there isn't much I can say. I cam here for my first lads golfing break. I had an amazing time the hotel complex is very nice and the rooms too. As far as the golf course and facilities are concerned they are top draw. The shop has everything you would ever need for your time there.
The staff especially the ones who looked after you with your clubs and buggies were especially friendly and very professional, you just left everything with them and they got everything ready for you before and after the round. Even though I am an high handicapper this service made even me feel special and thoroughly relaxed to just go out and play and enjoy.

Lovely course in good condition. The greens were slower than expected but the course was beautifully set up. We spent the whole day and had breakfast and lunch - all speedy service and good value. This is a must play course but i do suggest taking a buggy as it can play long.
