FORE! Whether you’re a total newbie or a seasoned pro, Royal Norwich is the prestige option for Norfolk golfers. Set in a stunning 400-year-old parkland, about half an hour’s drive north-west of Norwich city centre, this friendly and stylish golf club features an 18-hole course designed by the renowned European Golf Design, plus top notch facilities including a short game area, practice bunkers and a huge practice putting green.
Worried that golf is just for blokes in diamond-patterened sweaters? Not here! Royal Norwich are dedicated to supporting Women in Golf, whether you’re experienced or up for a beginner’s lesson. In fact, in 2024 the club will be the venue for the England Girls Championship, and the course offers five new genderless tees (more traditionally, men and women have played from different positions on golf tee boxes).
For men and women alike, the emphasis is on “feel good” golf – there’s no handicap required to play, and all ages and abilities are welcome (including kids). After all, it’s never too young to get them hooked. Members also get access to all kinds of social events and celebrations, from floristry workshops and Christmas balls to summer barbecues and chocolate tastings.
If your life doesn’t have much room for golf in it (we hear you!) you might want to check out the gorgeous 6-hole course here – giving you all the flavour of the game without the major time component. Pay-as-you-go options, braid membership and multiple other choices mean that, no matter what your lifestyle looks like, there should be a membership option to suit you – without leaving you paying for golf that you don’t have time for.
Don’t know your bogey from your boogie? No matter! There’s plenty of good stuff for even golf refusniks to love at Royal Norwich, especially The Stables restaurant. This sleek all-day dining room (which is open to non-members, too) serves up everything from stone-baked pizzas to ultra-posh fish finger sandwiches, with a major emphasis on locally-sourced ingredients
The Paddock bar is a cool space for cocktails after a long day on the range – and the venue is also the only golf club in the UK to boast its own microbrewery, 1893 microbrewery! You can sample its fab bespoke craft beers, or book in a hands-on brewing experience for up to eight people.
If you’re a business star the club is an amazing place to entertain clients, and it offers special corporate memberships. Searching for the perfect venue for your wedding? Hire The Stables for its pretty surroundings, amazing catering and a relaxed party space. Er, that’s what we call a hole in one.
