Last weekend he was commentating on The Masters golf championship all the way from Georgia in the United States.

Tomorrow (Saturday April 18) globetrotting presenter and former professional golfer Peter Alliss will be back on British shores and gearing up to officially open the new golf club house at Seaford Head Golf Course.

Mr Alliss helped to commentate on The Masters alongside Hazel Ervine who hosted the BBC coverage from Augusta, Georgia.

He will officially open the new golf club house in Seaford at 12.30pm alongside the Mayor of Seaford, Mark Brown.

There will be lots going on to mark the opening. Guests will be able to take part in a raffle, enjoy the bouncy castle, there will be live music, face painting, competitions for adults and children and 11 hole stableford competition. And an opportunity to win a £35,000 new Santa Fe Hyundai.

The clubhouse will provide a much needed larger venue in Seaford, catering for events, weddings and parties while offering spectacular views of Seaford Head.

It will also act as a gateway to the South Downs National Park with walkers and cyclists welcome. The clubhouse, which is owned by Seaford Town Council, opened for business in February.

Last month the town council dedicated a committee room to the memory of popular town stalwart Don Mabey MBE.

Mr Mabey was Freeman of Seaford and president of the golf club.

The committee room is now called The Don Mabey Room. Mr Mabey was known to many in Seaford for the work he did in and around the town. Around 80 guests attended the grand opening of the room on March 7 which was hosted by his widow Maeve Mabey.
