2 reviews of Royal Norwich Golf Club
I am surprised that there are not any recent reviews of this course. Played it today and was impressed with the layout. After starting with an ordinary par 3 next to the clubhouse you cross the main road to play 9 excellent holes on undulating terrain. Crossing back to the clubhouse side of the course there are other testing holes including the spectacular 13th, a 320 yard hole with a 180 yard carry over a woodland copse to the green below. Well worth a visit because it is good value. The only thing on the minus side is the clubhouse which is no more than adequate. The club and the course deserves better.
Having just moved to the area I am checking out some of the local courses. Work commitments mean that I am only able to play "twilight" rounds however.
The Royal Norwich charges £17 for a twilight round which I thought was a bit expensive at the time but since then I have found that this is similar to what is paid at other courses in the area.
The course itself was very well maintained and was set in beautiful woodland in the outskirts of Norwich. The first 10 holes are accross a main road from the clubhouse and present a challenge to all with some narrow fairways and protected greens. Unfortunately for my score card, local knowledge was essential with some elevated tees and sloping fairways luring in the adventurous... watch out!
The last eight holes are back accross the main road and were probably some of the best holes of golf I have played in a long time.. Picturesque, well tended and challenging.
Of the four courses I have tried around Norwich so far - all of which have been very good - this outshone the rest. If you like a challenge then I can strongly recommend a round at the Royal Norwich.
