Over the years, since its creation in 1874, the finest golfers in the country have played the links at Seaton Carew including the legendary Harry Vardon, J H Taylor, James Braid and several other Open Champions. Dr Alister MacKenzie lengthened the Course in 1925 to 6,500 yards and designed new holes eastwards including the planting of over 2,000 buckthorn bushes. In 1937 Walter Hagen played an exhibition match at Seaton Carew during a European Tour and commented "It is a splendid course, the links are well groomed. It is not an easy course and provides a good test of golf. It is one I would like to play quite often."

By varying the playing sequence of the 22 Holes there are up to 5 course layouts, three of which are played regularly, the Old, Brabazon and Micklem and all present a varied and challenging test with plenty of twists, turns, dunes and bunkers. The Brabazon has hosted the competition of the same name, just one of a series of R&A and EGU Events held over the years. The Micklem course was used for the Carris Trophy in 1996, when Graeme Storm pipped Justin Rose by a single shot and Oliver Wilson's 66 remains the course record for that layout.
