The Championship Course

The Championship course at Aldeburgh Golf Club is ranked number 31 of the golf courses in England by Golf World. Built on the maritime heathland the course is distinctive for its gorse lined fairways and expansive views. Described by R&A advisor Alistair Beggs as “having amongst the best playing surfaces in the land” it in its history been slected to host the 2012 English Amateur Seniors Championship as well as previously hosting the English Ladies Close Championships and a number of Suffolk County Championships.\r\n\r\nPlaying 6,603 yards, but without incorporating any par 5s, it is a difficult task for even the best golfers which is reflected in the fact that standard scratch of the blue tees is 73 despite only having a par of 68. In recent years the course has been tweaked to reduce the threat of the gorse from the tees to some extent whilst the entries to greens in turn have been tightened through the inclusion of new bunkers and swales to provide a better balance to the course.\r\n\r\nAround the course the short 4th hole is memorable, a par 3, with a large steep faced bunker that protects a long and left to right sloping green. The front nine holes play easier than the back nine where the 14th marks the beginning of a tough stretch of closing holes. The 14th itself is one of the best on the course and needs a long accurate drive to ensure the second shot in to the elevated green is playable achievable without too longer iron or hybrid.
