What the club says: Golf has been played on Rushmere Heath since the late 1800s when it was the home of the Ipswich Golf Club. In 1927 when the majority of the members elected to move to nearby privately owned land, a public appeal and donations from founder members enabled Rushmere Golf Club to be formed.

The heath is a fine natural golf course situated just on the outskirts of Ipswich. Most holes are bounded by gorse and there are many fine old oak trees providing not only natural habitat for birds and other wildlife but demanding care and accuracy from many of the tees.

Good. Course too many dogs
The. Course was in good condition, greens ran true but not particularly quick. Appreciate this is common land, but personally could not be doing with all dogs and walkers. Would play again but would not join.

The course is in pretty good condition considering how much rain we have had, the greens run smoothly, would definitely recommend a visit especially if your course is suffering from the wet weather

Played this course again after a year away. Friendly membership. Dog walkers on the common land not always as courteous or as aware as the golfers.

The course is in terrible condition.The rabbit epidemic needs to be addressed.Over the last few years RGC has become one of the very worst maintained courses i am aware of and i would not recommend anyone spends their hard earned cash on it.Such a shame for a course that was once a real joy to play.
