Played here Friday 24th Jan on a 'twilight' pass - 18 holes for £18, so excellent value, even if the course had turned out to be not that good.
Turned up on my own and the very helpful (and new pro) soon found me a pair to play with on the front 9. Wayne and Phil - who just happened to be the Seniors capt and vice-capt - couldn't have been nicer. Played back 9 with the head greenskeeper - Nick - again a very nice guy.
Despite the recent awful weather and a heavy frost that morning, the course was in very good condition. The greens, despite being treated the day before were true, firm and reasonably fast. No bobbles or odd breaks and bounce. In short a delight to putt on, especially given the time of year.
The course is very 'natural' - it's on common land - and you do get walkers wandering about, but it's very enjoyable with some challenging holes, notably the 8th/17th.
In short, thoroughly enjoyable and well worth the visit. I'll be back!
Score (yellows) - 83, handicap - 16
Great course! Played end of January, and nevertheless the course was in wonderful condition. Perfect and dry greens and fairways. The holes are very diversified, and you will not forget some of the lovely views. Though it is only 9 holes one of the best courses I have played so far.
Played Southwold on 31st March. What a pleasure. Course in lovely dry condition and greens superbly fast. Lovely views. Some lovely holes - a real treat. Members and staff very friendly. What a shame it is only 9 holes (although different tees are used for the "back nine") and that the holes lost in the flood of 1953 cannot be reclaimed.
