Always a good course to play

Always enjoy playing here. Not done so for a while, but pleased and surprised to see it in good nick, despite recent lockdown.
Pace of play here is normally the only issue, Holes 1-4 normally the slowest, but then play tends to speed up a little.
The course is popular, hence the pace of play. Views are great and everyone is friendly both on and of the course.
The Par 3 12th,which links the lower part of the course to the top cliff part, is a tough short walk up hill, but to then get to tee off from the 18th a short while later, with the view and all to eagerness to get the driver out and launch one, makes it all worth while.

Fabulous!!

I chose to join Seaford Head over the far more expensive Seaford Golf Club simply because I love this course! There are maybe a couple of fairly featureless holes but overall it is a varied and challenging course that is in the main fairly forgiving for less than arrow straight tee shots. The eighteenth is an absolutely stunning hole although there are plenty of others with marvellous views across The South Downs, The Seven Sisters and along the coast - Portsmouth and The Isle of Wight are clearly visible most days and they are sixty miles away! The course is rarely closed as it drains so well being on top of the chalk cliffs and is kept in marvellous condition by the green staff. The greens themselves are fantastic, even during the horribly wet conditions of the last couple of months there have only been a few days where temporary greens have been necessary. It can be very windy at times and there are a couple of fairly sharp climbs, but it really isn't as bad as it may look from a distance....anyway, it's all worth it to get to the elevated eighteenth tee.....once played, never forgotten...it really is stunning.

Fraser the resident pro is very welcoming and helpful, and the clubhouse (The View restaurant) is equally welcoming with a good range of fare, 'good pub food' opposed to fine dining.

You really won't regret it.....

And oh, that eighteenth....

A proper golf test and a thoroughly enjoyable experience . The final tee off from the top of the cliff is memorable.

Glorious October day

Apart from the irritation of a couple of temporary greens while they were being spiked the course was in fine shape on this glorious October day. Shooting my best score probably helped!

Dry even after morning downpour

After incessant rain in the morning our foursome played at 2 on a dry course apart from a couple of puddly bunkers. Hugely enjoyable as usual. Not the most challenging but always interesting holes and the best views in Sussex golf

Stunning views all day

Played this course many times but despite the 6 weeks of drought I have rarely experienced it in better shape. Greens in perfect condition. Plays easily when the ball runs for miles as it did today so by no means the most challenging. The iconic 18th is worth the trip on its own. New clubhouse a definite improvement.

Fantastic views and good value

I have played here a few times now and it was fairly easy if you are straight and there is no wind. It was tough last time as I wasn’t so straight and a sea mist came in after the 9th and couldn’t see 100 yds. So missed the views. Greens were lush and consistent. Will probably return soon.

Course with great views

Played in fine sunny weather with only a little breeze, thoroughly enjoyed my first round here. Although some elevation, it was mostly gentle so not too exhausting. Course in very good condition especially the greens.

Good value. Course in great condition

I played the course mid afternoon on a saturday. We went out as a two ball and we teed off behind a fourball. Even being behind a fourball we were round in 3 1/4 hours. This was a really good links course. The wind was blowing but not to strong. Bearing in mind the amount of rain we have had over the last 3 months. The course was in excellent condition. The greens were good and fairly quick. There were some great risk and reward holes. The only disappointment was they didnt have any course guides. As we hadnt played there befor there are a few blind shots. Not for those who are not good on the hills as you have heart attack the 12 which is a par three straight up a steep hill. The 18 is a par 5 which drops some 150-200 feet from tee to green.
I will certainly be back as it is fantastic value for money. I booked through golfnow and paid £34 for the two of us.

Glorious views

We saw this course at its very best on a day of beautiful sunshine and gentle breeze. The course is challenging enough under these ideal conditions but I know from my one previous experience of it in the wind and rain that it can be extremely tricky. The course was in fabulous condition, the greens were lush and rather slow but consistent and fair. Venturing into the rough was invariably fatal and finding level ground was a rarity but stay on the fairways and good scoring was not too hard. Having only played the course once before and that many years ago, more signs for next holes and a map on the card would have been welcomed. My son who shot one of his best scores and wanted to keep the card was also a little disappointed that it appeared to be a poor quality photocopy. The views were worth the green fees on their own and the 18th is as spectacular a tee as I've seen on a golf course. Get your drive away here and all is well with the world! The clubhouse was welcoming, has a good menu and of course stunning views. All in all, highly recommended especoally in benign weather conditions.

Good course

Presentation of the course - greens and fairways - was very good. Bit windy which made it a bit of a challenge. Some of climbing. Professional very accommodating and bar staff very friendly. Will play it again.
