The original course was originally created in 1874 and since that has had many experts and pros both work and play on the course. One of the most substantial renovations of the course was the 1925 extension of the course by Dr Alister Mackenzie. Along with this extension more holes were added to the course and over 2000 Buckthorn bushes were planted, all with the aim of creating an enjoyable and challenging round of golf.
The course that exists today consists of:
- An 18 hole, par 72, links style course that reaches a distance of 6060m
- Elevations and bunkers that add an extra twist to the round, allowing you to use all of your available skill
- Full access to all the facilities offered at the Seaton Carew Golf Club

A pleasant surprise12/08/2014this review is the subjective opinion of a GOLFBOO user and not of GOLFBOO S.LI stopped off at the seaton carew club as part of the north east golf trail. The old course was the first course I played whilst here. As an avid golfer I have played many courses throughout the world and I can honestly say that this course is one of the better courses I have played. Brilliant greens and great challenges made my round here thoroughly enjoyable.
Average rating obtained byThis rating for Seaton Carew Golf Club. is the average of 11 ratings obtained from www.top100golfcourses.co.ukI wasnt really prepared for how good the Old Course at Seaton Carew would be and this mightily impressive track really surprised me! There may be no tall dunes to weave in and out of but there are plenty of subtle changes in elevation to sustain interest in the terrain from start to finish. And forget about the old, heavy industrial backdrop to the layout as youll need all your concentration to deal with the job in hand. An earlier reviewer mentioned how everything was laid out in front of you, well Im sure elite golfers love to play here because of the intrinsic fairness of the design. Having said that, Lagoon, the par four 10th, was my favourite hole on the card, as its split-level fairway forces golfers into a semi blind approach to the green for tee shots played to the left of the hole. I also loved the strong finish to the round, where a trio of testing par four holes follow Cosy Corner, the third and final short hole on the course. I was told that most of the greens were dug up and re-laid under the watchful eye of a former St Andrews greenkeeper a decade or so ago and these big, wonderfully contoured putting surfaces are what really make the Old Course such a delight to play. Signage could be improved a bit in places as there are sometimes several options available when heading for the next hole but thats a minor quibble when you can play one of the very top courses in northern England for a very reasonable green fee. Id love to return again to play the four Pennink holes which are laid out closest to the coastline but until then Ill remember the other eighteen holes at Seaton Carew very fondly. Jim McCann.
