Over one hundred years old; and the club continues to evolve.
How would you rate a Golf Club that offers the following?
Seaford Blatchington is laid out along the free draining chalk ridge that leaves Seaford to the north. We are able to boast that our course has been open for play every day throughout the Autumn months of 2019, due to our continued investment into managing the greens and fairways.
The peaceful location of the course away from traffic is enhanced by magnificent views. To the south, the course overlooks the turquoise English Channel, to the north are stunning views over the Rathfinny Vineyard and to the east the views continue beyond Seaford to the spectacular Seven Sisters.
The course is an easy walk with only 120ft elevation from the clubhouse to the 8th green. Enough height for legendary course architect JH Taylor to realise his vision. By using the natural undulations of the landscape and incorporating the old flint quarries located in front of the 6th and to the left of the 7th greens, Mr Taylor’s ambitious creation was realised in 1907. Having stood the test of time with a tweak from Mr Hawtree, Seaford is rated as one of the top courses in Sussex.
The course measures 6,546 yards par 69, off the championship tees. With the introduction of our new Blue tees, we have 3 shorter courses for members and guests to choose their tee of the day. The relatively recent introduction of 2 extra holes, creates an 11 hole competition course for those who would like to play a shorter course.
The club has fabulous practice facilities for beginners and accomplished golfers, a full length driving range with the luxury of playing off grass, although there are two covered bays if the weather turns. The three-hole academy course is designed to sharpen your approach play and we have a chipping and bunker area along with an 18 hole putting green.
Within the Clubhouse your experience will continue with a relaxed atmosphere, a fully stocked bar with a selection of local traditional ales and new world beers. Our in-house catering team are on hand to provide you with a full menu and come into their own when they cater for the 17 social functions that are run by the Social Committee. There are many other functions that the members hold throughout the year; 110 members turned out for breakfast to watch the Rugby World Cup on a large screen, kindly supplied by one of our members.
The club was founded in 1887 and we continue to hold on to our traditional full sized snooker table, cribbage and our daily newspapers, while we have kept up with the times. Sky TV is available in the two bars and one function room, along with the all-important Wi-Fi made available throughout the clubhouse.
Within the club we have a Dormy House of 12 twin bedded rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms where visiting golf societies can stay. Members and their guests receive preferential rates if they wanted to spend some quality time in a relaxed environment.
The club runs a busy diary of golf competitions for the Ladies and Men’s sections and includes friendly and competitive matches against other clubs. Each year we enter teams in to the Sussex County Golf Unions’ events for our best players to represent Seaford Golf Club against other clubs.
