Summary:

The East Sussex National Golf Resort & Spa is a prime example of architecture and the environment in perfect harmony.
Set over three levels, you'll find the hotel spacious but with a level of intimacy that will appeal to those who prefer the personal touch.
Both our championship courses were designed by Robert E Cupp, one of Jack Nicklaus’s course architects, with major championship golf in mind. It’s no wonder that the club staged two European Opens and played host to some of the world’s leading players including Nick Faldo, Ernie Els, Vijah Singh, Colin Montgomerie, Jose Maria Olazabal, Nick Price and Ian Woosnam.
At the time of construction, our East Course was the first of its kind in the country to be galleried – even those not playing feel the superiority of our courses as they offer unrivalled spectator appeal.
The East Course was specifically designed with championship golf in mind. Measuring 7138 yards from the gold tees, this is a formidable test of golf.
The East was the chosen course for the 1993 and 1994 European Open and has subsequently paid host to five European Challenge Tour events and four PGA European Tour qualifying schools between 1994 and 1997, plus numerous other high profile golf tournaments. Cleverly placed tees permit the less competitive golfer to enjoy the character of the East, with blue tees providing a challenging 6,760 yards or, for the less ambitious the white tees measure a modest 6,046. The ladies have course ratings on both the white tees and their own LGU markers which measure 5,294 yards.
Unlike the West, the East has two loops of nine holes bringing you back to the Clubhouse after each nine.
The West Course (formally known as the Members Course) is often regarded as the more scenic but is certainly tighter and more undulating. Surprisingly at 7,154 yards it is slightly longer than the East. There are still, however, tees to suit varying standards of golfer, the blues measuring 6,638 the whites 6,069 and the ladies 5,199.
Visitors are always welcome at The East Sussex National Golf Resort & Spa and it is the perfect venue for the golfer who wants to play better. Our Stay and Play packages are specially designed to keep the instruction very personal.

The West course is excellent. Lots of challenging holes with a number of signature type holes. It is a parkland course. Tighter course than the East. Fast greens. Nice fairways. Practice facilities and club house is excellent. Both courses are well worth playing. Played this as a weekend break including breakfast and evening meal. Well worth doing.

Played the West Course (the tree lined, 'members course') and it was great. Plus, at only £40 to include lunch, it was a steal. The clubhouse is very impressive. Everyone very friendly - from the bag drop guy to the pro shop staff to the bar staff to the marshalls. The course was presented in great shape every hole was different, interesting and a challenge. The greens were well protected, large and quite fast so leaving yourself with an uphill putt was a good choice. If you get the chance to play this course my advice would be 'jump at it' it's a great experience. PS. I didn't see much of the East Course but apparently it's more open (more American in style) but maintained to the same high standards and as good a course to play.

Excellent course in superb condition. Fairways are fairly wide and greens are large. Bunkers in wonderful condition and the mix of holes will test the best of you. Having also played the West Course - would say this is more difficult although off the white tees at 6,000 yards it's not a slog ! Pro Shop, Food & general service was A+++++ You should try it !!!!
