Ipswich Golf Club (Purdis Heath)

4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Ipswich Golf Club (Purdis Heath) Est. 1895

Where2Golf says: 

Ipswich Golf Club (Purdis Heath): This course on Purdis Heath carries all the trademark features of James Braid, a masterful course designer. With generally wide-ish tree-lined fairways, well-bunkered and smallish greens, touches of gorse and plenty of heather, this is a heathland course to rival the best in England. Among the many splendid holes are the 9th, a short, tight par 4, and the rifle straight par-5 11th. The blind shot to the 4th green is a curio on an otherwise splendid layout.
