Played Seacroft for the first time on a cold February day after a spell of very poor weather had closed the Nottinghamshire courses (Hollinwell and Sherwood Forest) that had been on my list. I thought a links might have stood up to the conditions rather better, and was proved right. In fact, I was astonished at how good the greens were, still hard and fast despite being battered for weeks.
Overall, was it worth the drive? I'd say yes, certainly. As other reviewers have mentioned, it's classic links golf in the traditional mould, with very tight fairways and plenty of blind or semi-blind shots. I wouldn't say it is anywhere near as good as Silloth, as is implied in the main article here, but it's no gimme and a lot of fun to play. The 7th 8th and 9th make a run of three highly entertaining holes, and the 7th in particular, played into the wind, wouldn't look out of place on courses of much greater renown.
