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.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
