Location: Norfolk

Golfshake Rating: 4.33

Value For Money Rating: 4.36

Review Comment: "Lovely course which is incredible value as well as a solid test for good golfers. Plenty of tough par 4s but also some lovely par 3s including the 16th which could easily remind visitors of a more illustrious Surrey or Berkshire layout. A good Norfolk piece of hospitality always awaits too."

Bawburgh Golf Club

Bawburgh Golf Club

Location: Norfolk

Golfshake Rating: 4.64

Value For Money Rating: 4.35

Review Comment: "I hadn't played Bawburgh for a couple of years so it was good to return and see improvements to a course that I already enjoyed. The clubhouse has been recently refurbished and looks great. Our group of 18 enjoyed a buffet after the round which was superb. The course itself has been improved by some thoughtful rerouting at the start. It has always been well maintained in the past so I was not surprised to find it in excellent condition this time. One of the top parkland courses in Norfolk in my opinion."
