Where2Golf says: 

King's Lynn Golf Club: To play King's Lynn is to enter a tranquil forest of birch and pine, where accuracy rather than length will serve you well from the tee. Peter Alliss and Dave Thomas were entrusted with laying-out a new course for the Club in 1975. Their design, based on two nine-hole loops, makes excellent use of this attractive area of wooded heathland.

The generally well-maintained King's Lynn layout is characterised by tightish fairways, alongside which good bunkering and occasional water ditches come into play. Not overly large greens are home to many testing slopes and borrows.

On several occasions you'll be tested by gently doglegging holes, although it's the rifle-straight par-5 9th that stands out as one of Alliss & Thomas's best looking and most challenging tests. With abundant birdlife (pheasants, doves, woodpeckers and the like) all around, King's Lynn offers the opportunity for a most enjoyable golf outing.

Did you know?

The original King's Lynn course, designed by the legendary James Braid, disappeared in favour of quarrying the valuable silicon sand that lay underneath it. The club moved to its present location and a Peter Allis/Dave Thomas designed course in 1975.

Although a few miles inland from the North Sea, historic King's Lynn has long-served as a bustling sea port and market town. The town is connected to the sea by a straight section of River Great Ouse.
