There any multiple courses at East Sussex National Golf Resort and one of them is the West course which is is considered to be the most intimate, and the prettier of the two courses. Once the member's reserve, the West course can now be played as part of a package of tourists. The two courses were planned by Bob Cupp, which was opened to play in 1990.
Bob Cupp used bent grass from tee to green, resulting in an American-styled course, with plenty of variety between the various grass cuttings. The North, measuring a whopping 7,154 yards from the back tees, is the longer of the two courses. The West Course, which hosted the Challenge Tour Championships from 1995-1998, poses a significant golf check. This was used from 1994-1997 also for the European Tour Qualifying School. But don't get turned off, there are four different teeing areas, and the course measures just 6,069 yards from the standard men's tees (5,199 yards from the ladies' tees). The kit provides enticing views to the South Downs. The field is undulating, with plenty of mature trees to negotiate. There are other unforgettable openings, as well. The 3rd is a pretty par three-Little Horsted Church's target. One pond is to defend the green to the right. The green itself is two-tiered, and when the flag is at the back of the upper tier, it's an especially tricky hole to play. But it is the odd par fives. They all weigh more than 500 yards from behind the tees. Little Horsted creek meanders along the entire length of the 12th hole, an exciting and challenging par five. The creek turns into a small pond to the right of the green, lying in wait.
A par is to be loved here. The Strokesaver perfectly sums up the closing holes in the West: "The golfer was limited to 14, tempted to 15, deviled to 16 and exhausted to 17. Currently he, 's standing on the elevated tee, looking through a deep chasm to a fairway lined right and left by massive oaks, and a green guarded beyond by huge bunkers and the clubhouse. "East Sussex National is a chic golf resort. The 1994 edition of Walking the Fairways was elected Golf Club of the Year. There's no doubt this is one of the most welcoming and customer-focused golf clubs in the world. It's going to be an exhausting day playing the West and the East but worth the effort.
