What the club says: The course sits in a horseshoe- shaped loop formed by the River Waveney, and is an inland heathland course, with plenty of gorse and a mixture of pine and birch trees. Set in only 84 acres of well-drained land, it is a very comfortable course to walk and rarely suffers from excessive water.

The greens are quite small and well-protected, and the challenge is therefore in accuracy rather than length. In early spring the course is at its best, with the abundance of gorse in flower and some lovely views over the surrounding marshes. There is a variety of wildlife to distract you from your game, and skylarks can often be heard singing overhead.

amazing improvements

Bungay has made great progress in recent years, improving greens and aprons. Old bunkers have been rebuilt and repositioned to make the course more interesting. Tees have been extended with the intention of making the course longer - still work in progress. The course has been payable all winter, despite the rain and flooding elsewhere. A Braids course.

Poor condition

Played recently and fairways had been scarified and greens hollow tined making putting a lottery. Whilst, as golfers, we understand that course maintenance is important it is wrong that visitors are not informed and green fees reduced. Extremely unhelpful when we complained. We will not be playing here again- far better courses around.

Heathland

This is a good heathland layout although of the non manicured type. The fairways are patchy and the greens were not the best but at least the rough was whispy and not over penal

A GEM

What a lovely course! We were looked after from start to finish playing 36 holes after a fog bound wait. Friendly, helpful and charming staff without exception. Scenic course with excellent greens for February. The fairways could do with attention but they didn't detract from a great experience.

We had a great time at the club. The staff were friendly and the food was good. The course has improved a lot over the years. It's a great place to visit in both winter and summer. We're always happy with the price for our society.

A quirky little course with some very interesting holes and some straight forward mid length par 4's. We played on a very windy day so was a good test on firm fairways. Staff were rude/unwelcoming in pro shop and in the bar.

This course is absolutely lovely. The staff are all friendly and food is excellent. The course is in great condition but like most courses the fairways are still a bit dry.
