18 hole & 9 HOLE
THE GOLF COURSE
Golf School UK is based at Sedlescombe Golf Club and incorporates an 18-hole (par 72) ‘ Great Wood’ course as well as a 9 hole par 3 ‘Little Wood’ course.
Both courses nestle within an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty within the heart of 1066 country, and are surrounded by Battle Great Wood. With a number of feature holes based around stunning woodland, lakes and ponds, the 27 holes blend perfecting into their natural surroundings.
18 hole (PAR 72)
pARKLAND 'GREAT WOOD' COURSE
The picturesque 18-hole course is the perfect environment to progress your game, whatever your ability level. The lakes, ponds, bunkers and woodland on the 6,269 yard, par 72 course offer a challenge to the scratch golfer, whilst the average golfer will enjoy a variety of long and short par 4’s in one of the prettiest corners of England.
The opening hole is one of the toughest par 4′s on the course measuring 419 yards, playing straight into the predominant wind with bunkers and a water hazard surrounding the green.
Two par 5′s back to back, the 4th and 5th are a good opportunity for birdies. These holes are followed by a tough stretch of par 4 fours including the 6th, 8th and 9th all measuring near to or over 400 yards. The 9th is the signature hole. It plays downhill with a dogleg to the left. Two ponds protect the green with any short approach shots ending up in the water.
The back nine is more about accuracy than power. It only measures 2,839 yards but there is little opportunity for the driver as narrow fairways and small greens mean any wayward shots will be punished. The course ends with a risk and reward par 5. At 492 yards it is well in range of two shots for the big hitters. However with out of bounds down both sides, it is a risky play with a driver.
9 HOLE (PAR 3)
'LITTLE WOOD' COURSE
The back nine holes offers a different challenge entirely, with a variety of interesting holes ranging in length from 90 – 180 yards.
This Par 3 course is a real challenge with narrow fairways and smaller contoured greens offering some protection from the big hitters. The exciting mix of risk and reward holes include tricky par 3's, drivable par 4's and the long downhill par 5 (18th) with out of bounds posts protecting either side of the narrow fairway. The signature (15th) and stroke index 1 (16th) are played around no less than four ponds, placing a premium on straight hitting.
Golf School UK students benefit from free access to both courses during their stay. Ideal if you are with us for a half day school as the other half of your day can be spent out on the course, practising new techniques.
