A Dedicated Course

The Royal Eastbourne Golf Academy offers a unique environment in which to learn the game of golf.

Unlike other Golf Academy’s, the Royal Eastbourne Academy has its own, dedicated golf course, giving you the opportunity to learn and develop your skills in a relaxed environment with like-minded people.

Expert Guidance

Our team of professionals have developed a comprehensive coaching programme which gives you experience and guidance in 14 fundamentals of the game.

Regular, fun, competitions are also organised by our team of professionals to introduce you to the different formats of play the game has to offer.

Great Practice Facilities

The practice facilities here at Royal Eastbourne are the best in the area, with a long game practice area, two putting greens and a short game chipping green with adjacent bunker.

If you are considering taking up the game of golf, there truly is not better place to do this than the Royal Eastbourne Golf Club.

Club Manager's View

Club Manager Neil Darnell, who is himself a PGA professional and experienced coach, said of the academy, ‘we are incredibly proud of the Golf Academy here at the club. It provides a unique opportunity in Eastbourne to learn, improve and progress through the game of golf at the same facility.

"For me, what makes The Academy really special, is not just the PGA coaching staff and all that they bring, but the involvement of club members in the programme. Golf clubs can be intimidating places. The friendly, welcoming environment created by a joint effort of staff and members working together, really breaks down these barriers and produces a wonderful environment for everyone to enjoy’

If golf is something you have been meaning to try, why not give us a call, We would like nothing more than to help you begin your journey into becoming a golfer!

The Academy offers an annual development programme, (gold membership) and a 3 month intensive programme, (silver membership). for further details contact the Office via Tel: 01323 744045 or Email:
