What the club says: The Deal course is traditionally laid out on a narrow stretch of land extending to Sandwich Bay, and the natural links terrain has been subtly used to provide a wide variety of challenges. On almost every hole there is an abundance of large sand dunes which establishes the undulating character of the course and makes it unique. Unlike most other courses the fairways are just as undulating and it is seldom that a completely flat stance can be obtained other than on the tees. As with all traditional seaside links, the wind is a major factor which has to be taken into account when deciding on club and shot selection.



Most Helpful Review

Superb links golf, the fairways are full of humps, bumps, hillocks, valleys and the greens are pretty much the same. When we played the wind was against us on the front nine and with us on the back, giving us two very different experiences of the course. The staff and members we met could not be more accommodating and the clubhouse facilities are superb, recommend a round here to any avid golfer. - Nov 25 2010

Gem of a course
Some very good holes in a lovely spot. Course runs alongside seafront for first 9 holes where lots of kids were running/walking and making a lot of noise.

An excellent course in great condition. Taxing out nine into the wind. Halfway hut Bovril and sherry not to be missed. Very friendly traditional clubhouse.

Fantastic links course and in great condition. Weather was very challenging and we played from 12 onwards into a very strong wind. Great Clubhouse.

Derrick H rated 4 out of 5 - Feb 16 2017

The course played very well. The greens were in great condition and ran true
. The fairways are very narrow with a lot of undulations. There were a few bunkers that were ground under repair to them being repaired but the others were good with plenty of sand.

Mobie rated 5 out of 5 - Jun 26 2016

played in normal wind conditions - it is pretty much always windy. The course was in fabulous condition and once out on the course you don't see many people. Definitely not a course for a high handicapper but low to mid handicappers will enjoy it. A lot of blind shots so probably needs a second time out there to really appreciate the strength of the holes.

A true links test with the hardest back 9 I have ever played. Course was in excellent condition as open qualifying was last week. I wouldn't recommend the course for a really high handicapper as it is too tough but it was a wonderful experience to play and the greens required real imagination.

classic links and like most classic links difficult when the wind is strong, as it was when I played. It's straight out and back, wind behind on the way out. I hit the 486 yard par 5 3rd in 2 (driver, 9 iron) but I was struggling to reach the endless succession of 400 yard par 4's on the way in despite hitting driver

A great golf course, even having played in a down pour. The only downside was being asked to park in a muddy field , treating visitors like that is not at all welcoming. The path runs out at the end of the clubhouse and you are wading through mud and puddles to get to your car

A tough tough golf course, with the wind blowing out to sea, it seemed that every hole had a cross wind. From the left going out and the right coming in. Greens were fast, the high winds made you think about every shot. The staff were excellent, the clubhouse a museum with famous names everywhere. Got to go back in the summer
