This has to be the worst condition golf course I have ever played.
The green staff here, if they have any must not have heard of divots, as not one on any of the 18 holes were filled in. The tee boxes again were riddles with old divots. The course looks very untidy, and with a little bit of effort could be a great course.
The Pro shop here is the best I have ever been in, well stocked, and at great prices.
If I were a member here I would be disgusted with the condition, and appearance, as the cosmetics make this a must miss course. Although I did shoot a 68 playing off 11. Not a long course, but again it's a course I will not be playing again.
I thoroughly enjoy playing this course, yes it is alongside a rough estate but you only really notice on a couple of holes. It is a 'properly' ran golf club with a packed out pro shop and a friendly clubhouse. It is challenging course where you use the full variety of clubs in your bag with some shorter par 4's where you are punished if you sway, and a couple of longer par 4's where you just have to hit it long. I have played most courses in the area and I haven't found greens which match Seahams for condition, speed and turn combined. Would be nice if there were a couple of water holes but I suppose you can't have it all. Watch out for the 16th its a real card wrecker.
Played on February 14 on the winter course - winter tees and greens. And no wonder the course was virtually waterlogged! There cannot be any natural drainage here at all. My wife only managed three holes before retiring! The course is ok, a nice variety in length of holes, the elevation varies, but it is a bit bare of features in places and in winter can feel like a pretty unrewarding hack up and down with nice views! Cannot really comment on best holes because you do not play the proper course in winter - only play in summer!Played on the cheap on Monday so cannot complain too much!
My first impressions were not too good. You need sat-nav to find the course, it's round the back of a number of terraced streets, not helped by a wierd traffic management system Car parking was quite tight and limited. Part of the course runs alongside what sounded like a very rough housing estate, extremely loud screaming & shouting and police sirens at 10.30am. There are some truly stunningly good views of the Coastline from the highest part of the course
The course is fairly benign an boring with a number of holes going up and down alongside each other. There are a few very good holes including 17th & 18th.
The greens were very slow which was really disappointing for a costal course. I wont be rushing back.
