Royal Norwich Golf Club

4-star: generally an excellent standard golf course, well worth visiting.
   Royal Norwich Golf Club Est. 1893

Where2Golf says: 

Royal Norwich Golf Club, formerly located in the Hellesdon area of Norwich (the club's home for over 125 years), moved to a new home in 2019. Now located a further seven miles out from the city, the new £10 million development occupies what was previously the site of the Weston Park Golf Club.

Royal Norfolk's new course, situated just north of the village of Weston Longville, takes you round in two nine-hole loops. Ross McMurray's design includes a variety of attractive straightaway and doglegging holes, stylish bunkering, but not too much water in play. Two holes that have already caught the attention of visiting golfers are the 608-yard gently doglegging par-5 12th, and the par-5 18th, which gently doglegs left-to-right on its way to a well bunker defended green beside the clubhouse.

Sutton Coldfield Golf Club: located to the north of Birmingham, occupies a small corner of the wonderfully expansive and natural environs of Sutton Park.
