What the club says: Founded in 1887 The Royal is a traditional members golf club situated in the lee of the Sussex South Downs. Comprising 27 holes of challenging golf, we cater for all levels of handicap. Both the Devonshire & Hartington golf Courses are maintained to the very highest of standards. Built on chalk we seldom see the courses closed.

Not only are the courses in first class condition but when you play at The Royal you will also enjoy some stunning views across East Sussex.

lovely, difficult

Stunning layout with treacherous par three's! Short course in yardage, but the wind makes it a full size course!

Great 9 hole alongside the Devonshire

Really enjoyed my round here after visiting last month.
Great facilities overlooking the course.
I played the Hartington course as I would have collapsed playing the Devonshire 18 due to the heatwave. No trees on the Hartington so it was just brutal sunshine.
Good practice facilities here and also a nice skyline view of Eastbourne when you are up high. Nice pro shop also.

Blew my wig off

Played the Devonshire course, which is comprised of two very different nines; the front was reminiscent of an alpine course layout and the back nine, more a parkland course. Course condition was very good, especially the greens. However, the wind was so strong that a good scoring round was out of the question, although we did manage close to handicap on the back nine. There are a couple of strange holes, but that’s true of many courses, if not most. Overall, a very welcoming and well maintained club and course. I would like to play it on a calmer day.

Great condition well worth a visit

Well kept course. rough kept under control and green that you can still stop a ball on. Putting was a dream quick with challenging borrows. Give it a go.

Played on a two day stay in East Sussex. Probably the most friendliest Club we have ever visited. Club Members were greeting us on our arrival, asking where we had come from and telling us about the course. Friendly and welcoming staff in the pro shop and clubhouse. The course as you would imagine was in excellent condition with views of the town and coastline from most holes. A definite must play if your in the area.

Parts of the course are a little "cross over" which spoils the course a little.

Royal always a good course- Changes made recently are daft - the 2nd is a weird par 3, and the 17th should never have been changed to a par 4- whose ridiculous idea was that ? Clearly not a golfer !
