The Royal Eastbourne Golf Club

With stunning views across East Sussex, The Royal Eastbourne Golf Club is a fantastic club with a rich history. HRH Prince Albert Victor of Wales became the Club Patron and, on 27 October 1887, Queen Victoria agreed that the club could use the Royal prefix.  It is believed that no other golf club obtained its Royal title so soon after it was founded. 

The 8th Duke of Devonshire accepted the Presidency which has stayed with the family ever since and his son, The Marquis of Hartington MP, became the first Club Captain.

The 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.
