Nice course

This is a nice links course.
Most tees and greens are in good condition, however the fairways are in need of a little TLC.

Great course

The course was in cracking condition and the greens were really receptive. Played really well until we caught up with a 4 ball of pensioners who were out for a Sunday stroll and no interest in letting us through.

Golfbasher

Course is in great condition, greens in good condition for April slightly slow which is to be expected. Members 4 ball tee’d of ahead of us but waved us through after 2 holes. Great course for ladies and gents with old fashioned club house with good atmosphere.

Great Value

Used the Hot deal to enjoy 18 holes at Cooden Beach. Lovely course, great greens and although challenging not too hard. Only lost 1 ball, that's good for a high handicapper. If you get a chance come and play

Great Condition, not very exciting course layout

Played today for the first time, course was in excellent condition for time of year, but the holes are not very interesting, I mean by this nearly every hole you can see the pin from the tee no real doglegs and the par 5’s are very short more like par 4’s, the par 3’s are challenging with the wind as it was today, but I think the course could have been designed better with the land available. . Still overall it is a good course.

Windy weather

First class condition

I have played this course 4 times, and I recommend it, it is rated in the top 20 in Sussex... and there are many top courses here so that is no small accolade. Given the long hot dry spell we had recently, it was in tremendous condition, it is a very well maintained course, tees, fairways and greens were all excellent.

It was largely sunny, but being right next to the sea, and sort of linksy (it's not strictly a links but has many of the same features), inevitably there was a breeze ... which was good, because that makes the course like all good links courses.

It you want a proper game you must try this course, and look and GolfNow for a good rate.

Great track

Cooden is a great course and challenging. Very warm welcome. Tees and fairways were in fantastic condition. The only slight downside is that the speed of the greens was not always consistent plus easy to lose a ball in the light rough off the fairway as the grass cuttings left made it difficult to locate the wayward drive.

Course shouldn't be open

A lovely course but on the day we played it was too wet to play. To prevent damage the course should have been closed. The weather was fine but this followed a number of days of torrential rain.

Fantastic course but don't ruin it.

Well laid out course

The course was in good condition. Challenging greens but a bit slow. My wife and I had a problem free round with no hold ups however just behind us there appeared to be some delays through slow play but that is not the fault of the golf club as it can happen anywhere. The bar staff were very friendly and efficient.

A good golf test

Played whilst on holiday in the area. Some very interesting and testing holes. Course was in great condition even though no rain for several weeks. Not as windy this year as last but a most enjoyable round. Will play again when back in the area.

A beautiful costal course

really enjoyed the course, although found the wind a bit of a challenge in parts. The greens were is great condition and the fairways large and forgiving.

An easy walk as the course is mostly flat.
Love the resident foxes and the water hazards lent to making the course quiet beautiful.

I would highly recommend this course and hope on our next visit to try out the food.
