Off the Course
When your not testing your mettle against the best golf courses in the uk, we recommend a trip around Rye - the quaintest town in the Southeast, Rye is a cobbled and crooked town of half timbered buildings, transporting visitors back to medieval England. Or, if you haven’t seen the White Cliffs yet, head down to Beachy Head in the South Downs National Park for a spectacular view.

Summer is, of course, the best time to go. This does result in hiked green fees June through August, but it’s well worth it to soak up that rare English sun.
