Golf Courses to Play in the East of England This Summer

By: Liam Moore | Mon 21 Jun 2021 | Comments


When the thought of an ideal golf course enters our mind, you would be forgiven to think about lush greenery and sensational views for miles long. However, in parts of the east of England, that’s not always possible – especially in London.

However, were you aware that the area hosts some of the best golf courses in England? Whether you’re looking for parkland or links, long or short, or maybe just a gem in the middle of nowhere, this district of England has you covered.

With the help of the Golfshake Community, we have put together 20 must play courses this summer. Have you ticked any of them off?

Felixstowe Ferry Golf Club

Location: Suffolk

Golfshake Rating: 4.58

Value For Money Rating: 3.97

2020 Summer Golf Rating: 5.00

Review Comment: “The course is tough; made more difficult by the conditions you can face there – but that’s what you want from a links course. You’ll have fun plotting your way around some of the hazards that surround the course and the stretch along the coast and the Martello Tower are as good as it gets.”
