What the club says: This traditional Members Club was founded in the early 1960's by five local businessmen who were keen to see a golf club in the City.

Having acquired the site of an old prisoner of war camp and bought some available fields, a nine hole course was opened in April 1961.

This facility was enlarged to 18 holes in 1973 and the opening of the course on the 4th July 1973 saw a famous challenge match between the then "Open Champion" Lee Trevino and top South African professional Hugh Baiocchi. Lee Trevino won the match with a score of 66 against a 67 by Baiocchi.

With the growth of the many trees on the course and the compact nature of the layout, the course demands straight driving and accurate iron play.

Great Parkland course

This course is in the sleepy cathedral town of Ely, Cambridgeshire. I was playing in one ogf their open competitions and was lucky enough to play with the Captain and vice captain.
The fairways were lush and the greens fast and true which made for a fantastic days golf on a demanding course.
Well worth a visit

Fantastic course in great condition

The condition of the course and friendliness of the staff was exceptional. I played in a two ball in the Junior Open. When we caught up to members 3 and 4 games they allowed us through, no issues. They were jovial and complementary to us - pure class. Would have no hesitation recommending this welcoming and friendly club

Charming Parkland

Really enjoyed my visit to Ely City Golf Club
Really nice welcome in the pro shop which is well stocked.

The course is well laid out and is a fair test of golf. Whilst tree lined it is slightly forgiving from the tee as long as you stay away from the bunkers!

The greens are excellent and fairly paced too.

The layout itself has matured over the years leaving for a really enjoyable round of golf on golf course that offers a good but fair test.

Very enjoyable with challenging holes on back 9. Extremely dry due to long drought but course still played remarkably well, especially the greens..

course was in good nick and greens very fast and a great test. My playing partner is quite a slow player and we were moaned at by a couple of groups which was not called for. They were basically stuck up members that think they are better at golf than they are lol

Excellent course, friendly Pro.

Unfortunately encountered some 'negative attitude' from a member at the bar, after our round, I was sworn at for no apparent reason, then given the "finger"... genuinely clueless as to why?? apart from that, Excellent facilities.

Easy to loose balls when the leaves are on the ground. Can be a bit boggy but they have done a great job over the last few years making it better when long wet conditions. Most greens true and break to the river .

Nice welcome, but was lovely view down the first. Was away on business and walked on and got a game. £25 after 4pm, quite steep, but the course was worth every penny. Lush fairways and greens were a tad slow, but no different anywhere else, weather issues. Tight fairways, tree lined with well placed bunkers and water to add to the fear. Great thinks course, well placed tee shots will help you score well on this course.

Great course, Greens are in the best condition that we've ever had them in. Even for this time of the year. Few to many leaves off the fairway meaning losing a ball when missing a fairway is inevitable.

Played here a in early September with a couple of friends. Course was superb, greens absolutely brilliant they just have to be the best in Cambridgeshire. Don't play here unless you want a challenge, a great test of your golfing skills!
Only downside was the clubhouse catering, all our choices were poorly cooked, poorly presented and very expensive. Our advice to golfers, play the course and enjoy it, guaranteed. Hats off to the green keepers!
But then go to a pub in Ely for a meal.
Advice to the club, sort out your kitchen, get a new chef and look at your pricing. Surely the club members must have experienced this? If you need advice on catering come and visit Haverhill and sample the difference.

Very wet and grass very long. Lost balls on the fairway due to length of grass and leaves !!
Golf course staff very friendly and welcoming. Not so much can be said for club house staff or the members. Rude to say the least. We will not go again.
