Welcome to Seacroft Golf Club
Seacroft is known as a hidden gem among the top courses of Great Britain and Ireland. It is a traditional links course tucked away on the Lincolnshire coast at the south end of Skegness. Because of its situation on the coast and its fast draining soil the full course with normal tees and greens is virtually certain to be open.
It is adjacent to the Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve with glorious views over the Wash to the Norfolk Coast. A great deal of the course is also a Natural England Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) where golf and the environment join together in harmony.
The championship course plays host to several amateur championships but as a member’s owned club it also prides itself on being suitable for golfers of all abilities.
Why not come along for yourself – you won’t be disappointed.
ON COURSE DEVELOPMENTS
Back in 2017, as part of the Board of Director’s proposal for a 5-10yr plan, the Greens Committee began carrying out a course review.
An opportunity arose, where by the committee were introduced to Clyde Johnson of cunningolfdesign.com who at the time was working as part of Tom Doak’s Renaissance Golf, on Woodhall Spa’s Hodgkin Course refurbishment.
A Structural Engineering and Architecture degree from Sheffield University and a post graduate degree in Landscape Architecture at the University of Georgia provided Clyde with an understanding of golf course development and design. It was his time with Tom Doak and his associates at Renaissance Golf Design that Clyde acknowledges gave him an invaluable apprenticeship.
Clyde’s initial proposal with reference to Seacroft’s past history and design, including that of original designer Willie Fernie and the proposal of Alister MacKenzie, secured the trust of the directors. In March 2018 he was commissioned to produce a course master plan for Seacroft Golf Club. This led to the implementation of a considered refinement of all 18 holes to be undertaken over a five year period.
Through the winter 2018/19 work was carried out on the 7th, 8thand 10thholes which have now come into play. On Monday 21st October 2019, Clyde began the second phase, undertaking work on holes 9,11 & 6.
This year’s programme will continue through the end of 2019 and into early 2020, with the bunkering coming into play by April 2020, approximately 4 weeks before we celebrate our 125yr Anniversary on Friday April 24th.
