Aldeburgh Golf Club has two courses, the 18 hole Championship Course and the River Course, a delightful 9 holes more suitable for beginners and high handicap golfers.
The Championship Course ranked 31st in England by Golf World, is built on maritime heathland is characterised by gorse-lined fairways and far-reaching views of the River Alde and the North Sea. Fast-draining, sandy soil ensures that it plays well throughout the year; in winter the greens and fairways are in excellent condition with no need for preferred lies, temporary greens or tees.
The Championship Course
The Championship Course at 6,603 yards, but with no par fives on the men’s card, is a substantial challenge for even the best golfer. The SSS off the Blue tees is 73 against a par of 68. Every hole presents an examination in shotmaking and accuracy; a stroke given away to the course is difficult to recover. It is also a beautiful place to play golf. The views of the River Alde and glimpses of the North Sea, grey one day, blue another, are enough to raise the spirits even when the score is not quite up to expectation.
The Ladies however, do have a number of par fives on their card and the appeal of the course is evident from the number of occasions on which the English Ladies have held their Championship at Aldeburgh. Mickey Walker OBE, one of the most distinguished English lady golfers, regards Aldeburgh as one of her favourite courses, a great compliment from someone who has played golf all over the world.
The River Course
The River Course, a nicely balanced nine holes, overlooks a wide, sweeping reach of the Alde river. The golfer can enjoy the wonderful views across the marshes and observe the abundant bird life.
This is a beautiful place to play some relaxing golf. The course presents sufficient challenge to interest the accomplished player but can be enjoyed by the beginner or novice.
