What the club says: Frinton is a seaside course that provides a fine test of golf. At 6,265 yards, Frinton is not excessively long by modern standards and, at first glance, the open fairways with their lack of trees may seem unchallenging, but this is certainly not the whole story. The fast, firm, undulating greens test the best putters.

Tidal ditches cross many fairways requiring accurately placed shots. The trademark of the links course, the ever-changing sea breeze, demands careful club selection on every hole.

Frinton Golf Club was founded in 1895 and can look back on a distinguished past as well as looking forward to an exciting future.

The Long course has been renamed as The Havers Course. The 9 hole Short course is called The Kirby Course.

Frinton golf club

We play there every year in the Christmas holidays, normally it is dry apart from the second hole, this year six fairways were in terrible condition with a lot of water on them. The greens were woolly and slow certainly not up to there usual standard. A lot of work will now be needed with the courses drainage. The club house and the changing rooms have now been upgraded and looks really good, staff are as friendly as ever. Hope the course improves for the future as i normally tell people how good it plays in the winter months.

Fabulous place

First visit. Great course. By the sea with the wind blowing, proper golf. Greens in excellent condition for the time of year. Clubhouse staff very welcoming and accommodating. Club Pro very friendly. Changing rooms and other parts of the clubhouse recently refurbished to a high standard. Rest of clubhouse very traditional with an almost 1920's feel in the architecture and fittings. But the club is clearly one in the 21st century.

Frinton

Played New Years eve, well drained as had a lot of rain, greens good as ever but it looked like they had trouble with the fairways getting burnt in the summer as all the high spots did not have grass but probably be in hand for the spring. Friendly as ever with good facilaties and had the men's changing area refurbished which is really good.

Could be better

Course is in a nice part of Frinton on the Seafront, but greens are very hard and fairway is cracked considerably in some locations. In need of some TLC and rain!

Greens are excellent

An open links course which belies the obstacles around the course, with pockets of rough, ditches etc. to keep things interesting.

The course was undertaking spring maintenance, so the greens weren't as true as normal. The clubhouse and changing rooms have undergone a series of improvements and are now very impressive.

Frinton is a typical links course with undulating fairways and wispy rough off the fairways. The greens in general are the best I have played for some time. It is not a particularly long course but the wind is always a factor making it more challenging than it looks at first glance for the visitor.

Excellent seaside links course, not overly long but very difficult when the wind blows. Well kept, be careful of the hiden waterways and the greens are very fast. Good, friendly pro shop and Good practice facilities. Worth playing if you are in the area

Played this course on 2nd July whilst visiting the area. Fairways and greens were in excellent condition. Due to a very strong wind those holes where we were playing in to the wind proved very challenging. Very nice club house. All staff were very friendly and made us very welcome. Could use some additional signage pointing to the next tee after holes have been played as we, as visitors playing the course for the first time, did have trouble finding the tees a couple of times.
