Golfing holidays in Norfolk
With its temperate climate, flat landscape, and abundance of courses for novices, amateurs, and advanced players, Norfolk is an absolute treat for golfers. While Mark Twain is rumoured, but not confirmed, to have called golf, “a good walk spoiled,” the truth is that it’s a wonderful way to explore Britain’s landscape, and we’re all for encouraging that!
The best courses in Norfolk
There are a number of beautiful golf courses dotted around the county of Norfolk so it’s likely you’ll be spoiled for choice. If you need a little direction, though, allow us to point out a few of the locations frequently named among the best; whatever you’re looking for in a game of golf, the chances are you’ll find it in Norfolk. Sheringham Golf Club, for example, combines the drama of the coast with sprawling greens, while Dunston Hall and its gorgeous Elizabethan manor epitomise English golf. Royal West Norfolk Golf Club, Royal Cromer Golf Club, Sprowston Manor, Barnham Broom, Wensum Valley, and Weston Park Golf Club are also well worth further investigation.
Musts for your golfing break
When it comes to planning your perfect golfing break in Norfolk, there are a few things you may wish to consider: the locations of your chosen courses, the type of weather that’s expected, and the sort of accommodation that may suit you and your golfing companions. Will you be tackling a different course every day or staying loyal to a particular resort? Do you have all your own equipment or will you be hiring a course’s paraphernalia? If you’re a keen golfer, the chances are that you already carry your own clothing, clubs, balls, and accessories, so ensure that your accommodation is spacious and can house everything you need. Relaxing in a waterside lodge, nestled on the Broads, can be a fantastic way to unwind after a day on the green and it also provides a wonderful change of scenery.
