A terrible course in absolutely horrific condition!
The greens were patchy and uneven, the fairways looked like they hadn't been cut in days! And the "new" first tee box looked like it had been turfed with grass from a local meadow!
Miss this course out and keep driving -1 out of 10

First time I've played this course, I found it to be a nice, well kept course, greens are in great condition and are mostly consistent with each other in terms of pace.

Greens were soft following the previous day's rain but they were perfectly true. Played in the Dixon Cup and the club were the perfect host.
Good course and great food and hospitality.

Do you want a test of playing to your handicap, I played on a sunny day, force 4 westerly wind, greens very quick, give yourself a dayout and see your dreams shattered. Treat yourself to a buggy, you will need it.

I travelled to Seaham with moderate expectations after looking at their website but upon arriving immediately knew that an enjoyable day was in store. The course has some very short holes but you will need to make the most of these as there are also some long par 3's, 4's and a 549 yard par 5 (off the yellows) to make up for this. The greens were fast and true with some severe borrows to test the best of putters and, pleasingly, the bunkers actually had some nice sand in them instead of the hard clay-like substance I so often find these days.

Everyone around the course was very welcoming and the small pro shop was packed to the rafters with all of the latest gear. £27 for a full day's golf is money well spent at Seaham but using 2 Fore 1 vouchers you can play all day for £13.50 - what a bargain. Looking forward to returning already.

As a high handicapper i found seaham an excellent course to play. The majority of holes pose a challenge but with the course being relatively short you can enjoy the challenges without seeing your score rack up to a discouraging level. First impressions of the course are that it looks fairly average and nothing exciting, but that changes once you realise that the greens are very well guarded and the greens themselves are fast and rarely straightforward to putt on. A word of warning - beware the green on the 17th it is much steeper than it first looks and its a very stiff put from the front and a very speedy demise if you are putting down from the back. The holes around the turn are great opportunities to make up shots but these are evened out by other holes such as the 16th which can be real card wreckers. Obviously it's wise to hit the fairways however if you do miss them then the rough is a punishment without making you feel you'll never find your ball again. The people around the course were really friendly and the pro shop is very well stocked. We used 2 fore 1 vouchers so the value for a days golf was very good. We went to Seaham to try somewhere new which took the vouchers even though it was a bit further a way than we usually travel. We turned up not expecting anything special but Seaham surpassed our expectations and we had a great days golf. We will be back.
