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.

Absolute Coastal Gem

A sunny June day with strong winds, deemed normal by the locals! This is a beautifully presented classic links course that lives up to the hype. It starts with a straight par 4 but the remainder of the course can leave you feel battered and bruised. The greens run smooth and quick; the fairways are undulating with many blind shots; and the off centre hits can be penalised in very long rough (that's if you find it within 3 minutes). Good bar and service.

Brilliant links course .. Must play

Played Royal St Georges the day before and yet this course is every bit as good. The wind is behind you the first 11 odd holes , but the last 6 are into the wind and play 2-3 extra clubs. The Open has been played here twice and you can see why. The course could still take The Open but maybe the infrastructure wouldn't cope which is a real shame. Get yourself down to Deal.

Excellent course

A classic links in excellent condition, the last 7 holes into the wind must be one of golf's toughest finishes Limited sea views if you need them but a more enjoyable course in my view than St Georges. Very friendly club house.

Friendly greeting from the pro and staff got things off to a good start. Nice grass range although perhaps need better quality practice balls at this end of the market, good short game area which is now being extended. Course is near enough out and back, plenty still recognisable from the two Open championships the course held a century ago, you should spend at least an hour absorbing the history posted around the clubhouse.
Condition was excellent, recovered well from the summer, bunkers neatly rivetted, greens and surrounds have some massive undulations. Not nearly as narrow off the tee as I imagined, the first and second cuts are very sensible. Only a couple of genuinely blind shots, it’s very comparable to St George’s whilst somewhat less hilly. Yardage’s clear, signposted well.
I’d love to see an extra par 5and par 3 on the back nine, and I’m sure I’m not the first to suggest it but suspect the club is proud of being known for its brutal into the wind finish, 6 out of 7 par 4’s over 400 off the yellow. The problem is that you may find those holes become a little indistinct in your memory with just one long par 3 in between them. I’d also like to see several of the yellow tees raised at least a couple of feet, would make a huge difference to the visitor trying to picture the hole from the tee. One grumble that has been mentioned and must be rectified, why are visitors parking in a muddy field? It’s at odds with the warm welcome we were otherwise given.
Overall, under rated on here. There aren’t 115 better courses in the UK, it’s almost certainly top 20,

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.

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.
