Norfolk may be tucked away in the South East of England but it’s one of the larger counties in the country.
Despite it being largely flat and low lying it has miles of coastline which means there are good conditions for a mix of different types of golf courses. Combined with the microclimate (Norfolk typically has some of the best weather in the UK), the county is a great destination for golf.
In fact, there are over 30 golf courses in the area, but two of them stand out. Royal West Norfolk and Hunstanton.
Royal West Norfolk (or Brancaster as it’s sometimes referred to) not only features in the UK & Ireland Top 100 list, but also in the World Top 100! A classic links course, it’s been a feature of the north Norfolk coastline since 1892 and there has been little alteration to the course to the present day.
Just 7 miles down the coast, Hunstanton Golf Club is another stand out championship links course. It’s been there just as long too, having been founded in 1891. The course has undergone some more recent alterations, but has been held in high prestige over the years having held over 40 national golf events.
