Uncover golfing gems on a Norwich golf break
Norwich is an extremely underrated destination for a great UK based golf break. Although the city has a larger reputation for its university, culture and arts, golfers will find that a mini-renaissance is happening within Norwich and some truly exceptional golf courses are beginning to receive some well-deserved recognition for their unique designs.
There are many Norwich golf courses of repute, however, the seaside duo of Royal Cromer and Sheringham Golf Course takes the prize for being the cities top 2 courses, with both now receiving plaudits from the wider golf community for their exceptional designs and condition. Royal Cromer is uniquely set high atop the Norfolk cliffs offering golfers not only magnificent views but also some wickedly challenging holes.
Sheringham Golf Course is equally as unique and a great indicator of how good Norwich golf is, set on the cliffs on an undulating piece of land between the North Sea cliff edge and the North Norfolk Railway, it’s a challenging course that golfers who conquer it can certainly brag about.
