3 reviews of King's Lynn Golf Club
Visited this weekend for the first time with a small golf society. We received probably the warmest welcome we have experienced at any club (and we have visited many). The pro's shop could not have been more helpful, the steward and his wife were charm itself and the members friendly and interested. Even the captain came over for a chat.
The course is in excellent condition and attractive. As previously described, it is tight and a common sound around the course is that of golf balls hitting timber! Not at all easy. Straight hitting is the key to scoring.
Altogether a first class golfing experience. Well done King's Lynn!
Kings Lynn is a charming heathland course (plenty of heather, pine and birch) that drains well. We played after weeks of rain and there was very little casual water and none in the bunkers we saw. Overall the course was in very good condition, although understandably the greens were medium paced. The pro and clubhouse were welcoming and friendly. Along with Hunstanton, Brancaster and Sheringham it makes up a great group of courses to play if you are in the area, the first two being in Division 1 and the last two perhaps in Division 2. At the twilight rate (£30 after 3pm) KL is very good value. Apart from the par 3s and the 17th the holes lack variety, being variations on a theme (slight dogleg with one bunker at the elbow), but it is a good theme and will test the straightness of your drive. I’m not sure planting a birch in the middle of the 7th fairway is a good idea, Colt called trees an obnoxious form of hazard, but it’s not my course. I suppose it breaks up the “variations on a theme”. I always enjoy playing Kings Lynn and would come back anytime.
I had the pleasure of playing this fine course twice in one year. Once as a member of a society, and once as a member of Spalding Golf Clubs 2nd team. Each time the course was superbly presented and tended to inspire more than frustrate! Its setting, in amongst mature woodland, requires precise drives or it will destroy your scorecard. All in all, it dserves its place among the Top 50 inland courses in England.
