What the club says: Originally designed by Willie Fernie in 1905 with later modifications by Herbert Fowler and Willie Park - and most recently by Donald Steel - Southerndown takes full advantage of its natural features.

There are many longer courses, but few with a finer set of par-threes. Equally memorable are the closing holes, usually played into the wind. The 18th in particular with its intimidating gorse and renowned split-level fairway will live long in the memory.

Could be excellent. Played on it 16th May 2017 as part of a 3 day tour. The course layout is great, and is a real ly challenging links course. Fantastic views. \\Two things spoiled it for me. On the day we played, the greens were probably the slowest I\'ve ever played anywhere, including some cheap municipal courses. I\'m not sure if we ere just unlucky ky on that day, but I really could not recommend the course with the greens as they were. . A member in the clubhouse commented that the greens were normally like Augusta, so not sure what happened the day we played. Shame as it spoiled what could have been an excellent course. The second issue was the volume of sheep poo. Every fairway is absolutely covered in it. It actually became quite unpleasant was we did play half the round in the rain, and wet sheep poo isn\'t nice! lleast favourite if the three courses we played

For me a must play course. A links on a headland where wind often comes into play . The first is a fair hoick to an elevated green.You are then on top of the course with magnificent views. . Traditional clubhouse and well stocked pro shop.

Strong links course in fabulous condition. Not the cheapest golf course around but you get what you pay for. Holding the home internationals next year as well as the qualifying for the Seniors British Open.
True greens, not the fastest but about 8 on the stimp. Well cared for bunkers, good grass cover on fairways and tight lies and sheep to contend with- recommended highly.
