Founded in 1887 The Royal is a traditional members club situated in the lee of the South Downs. Comprising 27 holes of challenging golf, we cater for all levels of handicap. Both the Devonshire & Hartington Courses are maintained to the very highest of standards. Built on chalk we seldom see the courses closed.

Devonshire Course

The 100 year old Devonshire Course is named after The Duke of Devonshire and it provides an attractive combination of parkland and downland with outstanding views across Eastbourne and 18 different, but challenging holes.

Our flagship course, maintained to the highest standards and playable throughout the year due to its excellent drainage, offers a combination of open fairways and narrow doglegs, challenging bunkers, testing putts and requires some accurate tee shots.

The 10th hole is arguably The Royal’s signature hole. A stunning view across Eastbourne and the English Channel greets you as you step onto the elevated medal tee. 

Hartington Course

The Hartington Course, named after The Marquis of Hartington, is a challenging 9-hole course prepared to the same high standards as the Devonshire Course. Although not long, it has small greens that will test the best golfers whilst it is also an excellent course for beginners.

Our Devonshire Course members use this course to sharpen their skills or for a quick 9 holes when time is an issue. The Hartington Course is also the home to our highly regarding Golf Academy.

If you have not played it, you will be in for a real treat. The 3rd hole is arguably the hardest putt of any of the 27 holes at the Royal Eastbourne Golf Club. Congratulate yourself if you two putt the 3rd!
