Golf Clubs in Norwich
Norfolk is best known to many as the flat, low lying county in eastern England where The Broads form a network of navigable, lock-free rivers and canals, providing many with a wide variety of leisure pursuits, from those “messing about on boats” to twitchers searching for rare birds among the many acres of wetlands.
Norfolk County Golf Union was formed in 1908 so it has been the administrative authority to clubs in the county for over 100 years. Today there are more than thirty clubs – from Eagles GC in the west to Great Yarmouth & Caister GC in the east – in membership of the Union, which itself is affiliated to the South Eastern Group of Unions (even though Norfolk competes annually against Suffolk and four counties from the Midland Golf Union in the Anglian League).
Norfolk Ladies’ County Golf Association celebrated its centenary in 2012 and it currently presides over 31 affiliated clubs in the region – quite an improvement in membership, considering only five clubs were represented at its inaugural meeting back in 1912. Norfolk ladies take part in competitions against other associations with two county teams, a junior team and a senior team.
The county is blessed with a number of top golf courses, two of which – Royal West Norfolk and Hunstanton – are rightly ranked amongst the Top 100 18-hole layouts in Great Britain and Ireland. The two links courses are located within seven miles of each other so there’s absolutely no reason for serious golfers to not play both when visiting Norfolk.
