The legacy left by James Braid, Philip Mackenzie Ross and Charles Mayo, in shaping a design across the Breckland heathland over 100 years ago, is surely one they would be proud of today.
The modern course winds its way through a forest of pine, oak and birch, and between heather, gorse and broom. Using the natural land, and respecting our SSSI status, it’s a course in harmony with its forest and heathland surroundings. It visually challenges and stimulates, while delivering a fair golfing test for all.
The par 72 course, at 6,849 yards layout with a slope rating of 134 from the back tees is rated just outside Golf World’s English top 100.
Crisp, firm and dry playing conditions are what to expect from this heathland gem. It means the course is open and playable almost every day of the year.
Golf World’s summary “Make no mistake, it’s a class act” nicely frames what we believe to be one of the best courses in East Anglia.
