Founded in 1884, Aldeburgh Golf Club is England’s second oldest maritime heathland course. The influence of Elizabeth Garrett Anderson, the country’s first female doctor and mayor, and Millicent Fawcett, both of whom were members, ensured that Aldeburgh Golf Club is probably the first golf club in the world where women have always had equal membership and playing rights with the men.
Our Championship Course is a substantial challenge for even the best golfer. Every hole presents an examination in shot making and accuracy. It is also a beautiful place to play golf. The views of the River Alde and glimpses of the North Sea, grey one day, blue another, are enough to raise the spirits even when the score is not quite up to expectation.
Championship Course (18 hole)
Aldeburgh’s Championship Course is built on sandy heathland but has the feel of a links on many of the holes.
A visit in the winter is particularly enjoyable as the course plays beautifully, with no need for preferred lies, temporary tees or greens.
Players can expect to complete a round in 3 hours. > Find out more.
River Course (9 hole)
The River Course stands on the opposite side of Saxmundham Road to the Clubhouse and Championship Course. It has nine interesting holes with challenging, sloping greens and a selection of par fours and par threes with beautiful views over the River Alde.
There are no bunkers, but stands of old pines, gorse and other natural hazards combine to make the course a challenge to experienced golfer whilst still being entirely suitable for the beginner or novice. > Find out more.
