Sheringham Golf Club: Perched on a scenic stretch of cliffs on the Norfolk coast, Sheringham offers wonderful views onto the chilly North Sea and provides a naturally open environment for an energising round of golf.
After a relatively pedestrian start, the course gets into its clifftop stride at the uphill par-4 3rd. The next four holes wander alongside the cliffs for a breathtakingly scenic middle section on the outward nine. The view from the 5th tee is one of the most memorable to be found on an English golf course.
Much of the back-nine occupies slightly flatter terrain, where gorse bushes become the main danger. On the final stretch you play alongside the North Norfolk Railway line, and as with the opening stretch, the dangers for slicers are all to obvious.
Visitors welcome on weekdays; more restricted on weekends.
