Exposed!

I played here the day after Storm Francis and it was still really windy, and we quickly found out that there are few places on this course that give you much shelter outside of the clubhouse. I'm certainly happy I played here though, as this is a really lovely course with some really pretty holes. The downhill 5th and 6th holes are both very pleasant on the eyes, although these certainly aren't the only ones, and there are plenty of gorgeous views of the South Downs and over Eastbourne.

The fairways are generally fairly generous, so it's a course that will suit all handicaps, and the greens were looking really good. This isn't a flat course, but it didn't seem to be overly strenuous either. There is a bit of a climb up to the par 3 12th though.

I'll certainly look to go back again soon. Maybe not when it's quite so windy though

Kitchen closes early

A very damp and breezy day, but weather improved through first 9 holes. Course in good condition, we teed off just before midday and finished at 3pm. Disappointed that the kitchen had just closed and we couldn’t get any food apart from a cup of tea and packet of crisps. That kitchen closing early will disappoint a lot of golfers!

Reviewed Sep 23 2009

This course is great value for the money and will offer something for most golfing abilities as being up on the downs the wind can greatly affect the way you play this course.
The greens are in very good condition and being built on chalk drains well so even in the winter there are very few times when the course is unplayable.
The Pro shop has limited stock of golfing equipment but can easy replace those missing balls after a round.

Really good condition

Despite the wettest 12 months in living memory this course is in fantastic condition, can get windy as expected with a coastal course. Green fees are reasonable, great welcome and easy booking system. Course plays longer than its 6500 yards, but you can play any of the tees to suit ability. Thoroughly recommend what ever time of year

Beautiful scenery, tricky course

First time at Eastbourne Downs. Weather was kind - gentle breeze which is unusual for the cliff-top position. Amazing views on a clear sunny day. Fairways in great condition on natural chalk downland turf, despite a lot of rain over recent weeks. Greens also look great but were very slow compared to the courses I usually play on - took some getting used to! lots of undulating and sloping greens, which is a great challenge and makes every hole interesting.

Great Downlands Links Course

I've played here a few times in the past, so much so that I decided to join in 2023.
Its a great course with spectacular views and plays differently each time you play it, subject to the wind direction.
The fairways and greens are always in great condition and I'm looking forward to my next round there.
