East Sussex National - West Course
Formally known as ‘The Members Course’, the West 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.
After a gentle opening dog leg par four, the second takes you uphill on a long par five to a tight green. From there you face a par three over water, followed by a gentle par four and a long and sprawling par five 5th. Soon you reach the halfway point of the west as you approach the 9th green. The 12th is a demanding par five without out of bounds either side of the drive, followed by a difficult second shot with water on the right and trees on the left, culminating in a plateau green guarded by a severe pot bunker and water around half the perimeter of the green. The 18th, in the opinion of many is one of the most underrated finishing holes you could find. From the tee an accurate drive is essential on to a tree lined fairway, followed by a shot into a heavily guarded green with the backdrop of the magnificent Clubhouse beyond.
