This isn't the best course I've played but is by far and away my favorite. A superb course full of memorable holes with greens that play consistently paced all year round.
As a club it offers a warm welcome and retains an old fashioned sense of genuine hospitality to fellow golfers - none of the corporate nonsense here
My only regret is this is not my home club - one day maybe!
Beautiful course in a beautiful setting, my favourite of the 3 courses on the North Norfolk coast. The 5th sums up what Sheringham is all about, perched up high overlooking the surrounding countryside, sea, and the hole!; which at well over 400 yards is the toughest hole on the course.
The condition of the course when played was superb, the clubhouse standing the test of time, making the 1st my favourite hole, not the fact I parred it twice in two rounds!
The course is relatively flat considering how high you get for the 5th hole; many holes being birdieable for your average hitter.
Played here January 08 ( £20 after 12 ).
Considering this is a UK top 100 course it didn't live up to it's reputation.Also to clarify, it's not a links but a hilly clifftop course.
The main attributes here are the views & scenery & there's an overiding feeling of space here with dramatic & sweeping expansive views across the course & sea from various elevated highpoints.
However ,with a few exceptions ,i thought the actual holes themselves were a bit forgettable.By the end of the round it had all felt like hard work with lots of climbs & i felt like i'd played about 21 holes instead of 18.
With the exception of holes 4,5 & 6 the remaining holes don't stick in the memory.The well documented 5th hole is stunning as you tee off from probably the highest point of the course to a fairway way down below with far reaching views along the coastline .This is one of the best holes in the U.K.(It reminded me of the 13th ? at West Cornwall with it's panoramic views across the course from the tee).The par 3 6th is in the same mould but at 211 yards into the wind is about 40 yards too long.
The other par 3's didn't make the best use of the terrain available.
Course condition was reasonable.The clubhouse has great charm & character & the food we had from the large snack menu was excellent.
We received a good welcome & we played on the 2 ball only Tuesday which is a good idea as you know you're unlikely to be held up by slow play.
You can't argue with the £20 green fee for a course like this, but despite this ,i left here not wanting to play it again.
This course absolutely took my breath away, by far the best course I have played. Not only the course with it's challenging, yet beautiful clifftop holes but the general atmosephere of the place, I especially liked the steam railway which runs alongside the course. My favourite holes were the 6th, a long challenging par4 on the edge of the clifftop and I loved the 1st (but I can't remember why) just liked it! In conclusion, I'd definately recommend it, a million times over. Just dont expect a low score!
Played on 18/9/05 & 22/9/05. Wonderful course in superb condition without an uninteresting hole. Best holes 5th (SI 1) along cliff and 17th along railway line. Played in benign conditions but could imagine the difficulty in a 30mph breeze.
Stunning links and downland layout.
Greens fast and consistent.
This is a wonderful course which you must play.
Holes 3 thru' 7 hug the cliff on the right so don't slice. And the closing stretch has the steam railway on the right, so all in all it's a slicers nightmare.
Not too clever for anyone who's not straight though as the rough is tough.
The overriding factor on this course is the wind.
We played 4 rounds here only one of which was windless. 2 were in gale force winds which makes it really really tough.
Huge practice ground adjoins quite a small car park.
Yes the Adnams is super. So was the crab baguette.
You be made not to want to go back here!
Recently played Sheringham, Royal Cromer and Weston Park on the annual golf weekend away and overall rated Sheringham as the best of the three. It is punishing because if you are not straight off the tee (and I had an off day) you are severly punished by shortish but thick, ball-and-club-grabbing rough. Go in that stuff and you can forget greens in regulation - you have to take your medicine with a lofted club. Nice facilities and a warm welcome too, although we found them a bit fussy in terms of clothing etc (eg white socks only with shorts).
Visited the course with group from my club on 19 May. The course is a real gem with some spectacular holes, particularly the 5th and 6th which had tees right on the cliff tops. The greens were the best I have played on for a long time and required a great deal of concentration to avoid 3 putting on a regular basis. One small criticism of the course set-up though. There was virtually no grading to the rough so whether you were 6 feet or 20 yards off the fairway the ball had to be played out 6-8 inches of grass. this made the round a fair bit longer due to searching for balls, particularly when playing on bone hard fairways in a strong wind. Otherwise an excellent experience that was well worth the green fee.
The off course facilities were also good and all in all we had a thoroughly good day.
Played the course in September 2003 and thoroughly enjoyed the challenge it provides. It is a very fine test of links golf with some long par 4's which require very well hit shots in the prevailing wind. The 5th hole, stroke 1, is a wonderful vista with a very high tee and the hole stretching out in front of you along the cliff top. Well worth a visit.
I had the opportunity to play this course 9/02. A fantastic experience, that I hope to repeat this year. The cliffside wholes rank with the most beautiful I have played in my travels
We played the course in wind and endured a break for a ferocious thunder storm , but can unreservedly recommend it to any golfer . A lot of long and testing par fours and some staggering views from the holes which run along the cliffs . Terrific .
This is another course that I will return to. Played in very good conditions, so if the wind was to blow I can understand why grown men cry! Some of the holes are very picturesque, couple that with the steam railway that runs parallel to the 17th/18th holes and you have a"postcard" course. Some holes are frightening. One cliff-top par 4 to a very narrow green perched on the side of a slope makes you shudder from the tee, but at the same time you cant wait to play it. A "must play" course.
A fabulous course,if you enjoy planning your way round.\r\nHas one of the most difficult par 4's you will play anywhere in the world, of a cliff face to right, down a step bank to the right, a fairway 25yrds wide, into a green perched in the side of a hill, it does not get any better.\r\nTraditional club house, good greens,great lay-out, god help you if the wind blows!
