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 courseThis 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 conditionThe 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 ParklandReally 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.

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.

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.

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.
