A great base for a memorable golf break
The city of Brighton isn’t necessarily the first-place golfers think of when they think of great golf, the city is more known for its pier, beaches and nightlife. However, this is a wrong assumption as some of East Sussex’s best courses are located within miles of this incredibly vibrant city.
Three of the notable courses in the region near Brighton which are certainly must-plays if on a golf break include Seaford Golf Club, Willingdon Golf Club and West Hove Golf Club. Seaford is characterised by the high winds which often play havoc with a golfer’s round. Willingdon is known for its exceptional clubhouse and fabulous course design dating back to 1898. West Hove is known for its free-draining chalk-based soil which pretty much guarantees the course is always in great nick.
On the whole Brighton, golf courses are certainly worth checking out if you find yourself in the city on a wider East Sussex golf tour.
