Seaton Carew Golf Club

Durham

  • Par 71
  • 6633 Yds

A jewel on industrial Teesside, Seaton Carew has hosted many R&A and EGU events over its long and illustrious history.One of Britain\’s finest links, it staged the Carris Trophy in 1996 when Hartlepool\’s Graeme Storm – later to win the British Amateur Championship – beat Justin Rose.Seaton Carew has five different course layouts using different combinations of its 22 holes – the most challenging being the par-73 Brabazon that stretches almost 7,000 yards.Donald Steel noted in \’Classic Golf Links of Great Britain & Ireland\’ that \”a slender strip of undulating ground houses a rare challenge that deserves close scrutiny.\””The four most recent holes designed by Frank Pennick (for the Brabazon course) captures a spirit that embodies more than a hint of greatness. They give it a new dimension.\”” The outstanding hole is the Alister MacKenzie-designed 17th with its title of \’Snag\’ definitely an understatement.The green is an elusive target and rises at various levels to a proud position that defies all except the bravest and the best.Such is the magnificent character and immaculate condition of this wonderful layout
