I love playing at Seaton. True championship links course and a fine test of golf. As stated before, rough is punishing and fairways are generally tight. With the wind blowing, shooting anywhere near handicap is an achievement. I played the Old Course, and was in fantastic condition. Front 9 are good, with my fav hole being the 4th 'Dunes'. For me, the run from the 9th to the 18th are all excellent holes, with the standouts being the 10th 'Lagoon' and the 17th 'Snag'. I know the views of industrial Teeside aren't pleasant for some, but you would be a fool to miss out on such a cracking links track because of that. I played after 2pm on a weekday for £30, which is excellent value.
