Norfolk, on the east coast of England and within easy distance of London and the Midlands, is a delight for golfers, with courses in beautiful countryside and along stunning coastline.
With the sunniest/driest climate in the UK and summer temperatures amongst the best in the country, Norfolk is one of the leading places in the UK to play golf. The county has a good blend of links and inland courses, many of them close to the popular seaside towns of Great Yarmouth, Cromer and Hunstanton, and also around the medieval city of Norwich, with its wide range of shopping, culture, heritage and restaurants.
Hunstanton Golf Club is one of those magical, uncomplicated links golf courses where, no matter what you score, you always walk off with a smile on your face. The front nine starts relatively flatly and meekly but once you hit the par 3 7th, the sea comes into view and the excitement builds until it reaches a crescendo over the final six holes.
‘A royal welcome awaits you in North Norfolk.’
Visitors are always welcome at Royal Cromer any day of the week and can look forward to a memorable experience. The course is considered one of the finest in the region, boasting fantastic views over the coastline and will challenge players of all levels.
Sheringham Golf Club, as well as the history surrounding the club, visitors are greeted with a warm welcome and treated to what is largely regarded as one of Norfolks best golf courses. The undulating fairways and fast, true greens will prove a test to all standards of golfer and the views are truly spectacular with the North Sea on one side and local steam trains on the other.
One of the best inland courses in East Anglia, King’s Lynn was carved out of a wonderful north west Norfolk pine and silver birch forest and was created by dynamic duo Dave Thomas and Peter Alliss in the mid-1970s. It’s not the longest course, but the gently undulating heathland’s biggest defence is the towering stands of assorted timber overlooking all the fairways.
