A course everyone should play
They tell me to play royal cinque port for the beautiful links course, of Sussex national as its like a championship holiday resort. No one says play Beauport, they tut instead and laugh "Oh good luck playing there" as if to insinuate that this course is akin to taking your family for a summer holiday in Croydon.
Its only when you try this course for the first time that you realise, they are not looking down at this course.....they fear it.
A course record at 69 that has stood for decades, Tee shots that rely on good accuracy or ability to shape your shots. Par 4 holes that are only for the brave and have to be treated as a par 5 for most mortal men. Almost every hole is secluded in its own paradise of woodland. You'll see deer roaming freely about and birds of prey in the treetops. Beauport is beautiful yet deadly. You'll probable play your worst round of golf here but you'll love every moment of it.
This is a course that deserves to be on everyone's play list, Grounds staff have worked hard and have delivered a beautiful course and fantastic greens.
There is a pitch and put course driving range and putting green available.
Only downside is that chipping area is very basic so no bunker practice (Although I tend to get plenty of practice on the course when i play) and there is no bar/restaurant onsite which is a shame as I always love a nice bit of grub and a drink after playing or when I spend a whole day golfing.
Price wise: £14-£20 Weekday and £16-£25 weekend.
