What the club says: The 18-hole course at Purdis Heath was designed by James Braid - a name synonymous with high-quality golf architecture.

Making the best possible use of the natural contours of the heathland surroundings, Braid designed the Purdis course so that its shape resembles a horseshoe which loops around two duck decoy lakes at the centre of estate. The outward holes set off in an anticlockwise flow with the inward holes returning in the opposite direction. The result is that the golfer has to contend with the challenge of coping with winds from varying directions as each hole is played.

The course, built by Messrs Hawtree and Taylor (the five times Open winner who took part in the opening exhibition match), today remains substantially as it was when it was officially opened in 1928 and it compares favourably with the finest inland courses in England.

Really nice course (especially from holes 4 onwards). Feels like it could easily compete with those on the Surrey belt. Friendly welcome from staff & members. Nice clubhouse setting on the 18th. Would recommend playing friendly preferred lies on fairways in places. Bunkers and greens in great condition. Best in the region

Best in Suffolk

Personally feel Purdis is the best course in Suffolk.
The layout is fantastic, the removal of tree has been a good decision to open it up and some of the views over other holes are great.
The condition is spot on and the new bunkers have really bedding in. It might not be the easiest course around but overlook the score and take the course for what it is, a stunning layout in pristine condition.

Shame about the greens

I play this course once a year and really look forward to this wonderful golf course. However this time the greens and the fairways let it down. There is a lot of work going on with club house facilities and you can see it is going to enhance this golf club tremendously. I will look forward to coming back next year

Gets better each time

Having recently carried out some work on the bunkers (new and old) this course gets better each time.

Now a lot of trees have been removed it was a bit of a shock at first but as the round goes on you feel it makes such a positive impact on the course.

The course is tough, offline and you'll be in trouble. But the condition and layout is the best in Suffolk. Greens were running perfectly.

Very attractive course

Very challenging, with many, many bunkers. Game needs to be tight. Any loose shots are soundly punished.

a really great heathland course

Played in the rain from start to finish but still a very enjoyable game. Fairways were still recovering from the dry spell in June/July but greens were in great condition.
