Great Flat Course

Great course by the seaside, very flat and well kept, just avoid going in the rough where the grass can be thick and difficult to get out of.

First game with the brother in law.

The course played nicely despite some wet areas. The tees, fairways and greens were nicely cut and played well. The pro shop person was helpful and the staff at the clubhouse were polite. Overall a good afternoon of both golf and company.

Something different

Played the course on a Friday afternoon and had a really enjoyable round. Friendly staff in the pro shop got us underway promptly. Course you was in good condition and a different kind of challenge to the park land style courses I usually play. The easterly winds on the back nine made for totally new challenge from the front. Can’t comment on the facilities but looked nice. Worth a visit if in the area.

Challenging

Wonderful Links style course exceptionally challenging when strong winds are blowing in from the sea. Not the first time playing this course and will definitely not be the last.
Keep up the good work all at Cooden Beach Golf Club.

Lovely Course

Really enjoyed the course and the greens were in very good condition. The only minor issue was that we booked a 2 ball and got there to be told we were in a 4 ball with 2 strangers, luckily it wasn’t too busy and the other 2 were able to get out ahead of us.

Very average

I'm genuinely surprised by all of the favourable reviews. Fairways were patchy and poorly maintained, even allowing for the recent hot weather. The layout is uninteresting, and you almost forget how close you are to the sea, such are the lack of views. The welcome was cool at best and the price is steep for what it is. You can play courses that are twice as good for half the price just a bit further along the coast or even inland towards Kent. Unchallenging course that is overrated and overpriced.

From the friendly welcome to the pleasant conversation in the bar the whole experience was a delight. Played here before over 18 years ago and the course is still in excellent condition and a joy to play. I would recommend this course to all my friends.

Nice course

This is a nice links course.
Most tees and greens are in good condition, however the fairways are in need of a little TLC.

Great course

The course was in cracking condition and the greens were really receptive. Played really well until we caught up with a 4 ball of pensioners who were out for a Sunday stroll and no interest in letting us through.

Golfbasher

Course is in great condition, greens in good condition for April slightly slow which is to be expected. Members 4 ball tee’d of ahead of us but waved us through after 2 holes. Great course for ladies and gents with old fashioned club house with good atmosphere.

Great Value

Used the Hot deal to enjoy 18 holes at Cooden Beach. Lovely course, great greens and although challenging not too hard. Only lost 1 ball, that's good for a high handicapper. If you get a chance come and play

Great Condition, not very exciting course layout

Played today for the first time, course was in excellent condition for time of year, but the holes are not very interesting, I mean by this nearly every hole you can see the pin from the tee no real doglegs and the par 5’s are very short more like par 4’s, the par 3’s are challenging with the wind as it was today, but I think the course could have been designed better with the land available. . Still overall it is a good course.

Windy weather

First class condition

I have played this course 4 times, and I recommend it, it is rated in the top 20 in Sussex... and there are many top courses here so that is no small accolade. Given the long hot dry spell we had recently, it was in tremendous condition, it is a very well maintained course, tees, fairways and greens were all excellent.

It was largely sunny, but being right next to the sea, and sort of linksy (it's not strictly a links but has many of the same features), inevitably there was a breeze ... which was good, because that makes the course like all good links courses.

It you want a proper game you must try this course, and look and GolfNow for a good rate.

Great track

Cooden is a great course and challenging. Very warm welcome. Tees and fairways were in fantastic condition. The only slight downside is that the speed of the greens was not always consistent plus easy to lose a ball in the light rough off the fairway as the grass cuttings left made it difficult to locate the wayward drive.
