Seaton Carew GC, Durham
Seaton Carew Golf Club, Durham
As the 10th oldest Golf Club in the country and the only championship links on the North-East coast, we believe Seaton Carew offers a great combination of tradition and quality.
The Olympic Gold Medallist, Justin Rose was runner-up here at Seaton Carew in the 1996 Carris Trophy. This is what he had to say in 2014 when we hosted the Brabazon Trophy for the second time:...'There is no doubt that competitors and visitors alike will all receive a warm welcome to the links as I did in 1996. I have fond memories of those days when competing for the English Boys Championship, the Carris Trophy, on one of the few remaining classic links courses.'
With a total of 22 holes, 18 of which were designed by the creator of Augusta National, Dr Alister MacKenzie, and a further four by renowned course architect Frank Pennink, we are able to create five different course layouts, all of which are great tests of golf and usually playable throughout the year.
I hope you will soon come and enjoy our fantastic course and wonderful northern hospitality.
