East Sussex National East Course

Overview East Sussex National East Course

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.

East Course

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.

Well bunkered greens and fairways on the front nine lull you into a false sense of security for the challenging back nine which contains arguably one of the best stretch of finishing holes in golf.

The 15th marks the start of the finishing run. A long par four with a substantial carry from the tee, followed by the second shot into a plateau green where club selection is paramount.

The 16th, a deceptive par three over water with bunkers guarding the front and the back of the green leaving little margin for error.

With one hole to go you are faced with the daunting 17th where, if the adrenalin is pumping, you can easily run out of fairway. The second shot to the green is, again, over water and needs to find a generous but well contoured green.

. . . and finally – you are now on the 18th tee of what many of the tour Pros consider to be one of the most demanding finishing holes in golf. Measuring 454 yards off the Championship tees, is an uphill par four and is waiting to catch out the finest golfers in the world.
