There are North Sea views over The Wash punctuated by the Lincs Offshore Wind Farm turbines. Boston and Lincoln are nearby with Woodhall Spa being the perfect second 18 if you want 36 in a day. Sat back from the sandy beach with marshlands in between, Seacroft Golf Club is a rare, out and back, traditional links in a golf starved region of the country.
