What the club says: The course is a challenging nine-hole heathland layout, free draining and playable virtually all year round. It features greens that have received much praise, and are widely regarded as amongst the best in East Anglia.

Adding to the pleasure of playing at Southwold are the views of the town and the Suffolk Heritage Coast.

Visited the club whilst on holiday with family and had a few hours to break away. Its a very small club just inland of Southwold so sadly only sea views on one hole. Although we played 18, its really a 9 hole course with some of the second 9 tea boxes being slightly different in locations but playing the same fairways and greens. For this reason alone I feel that their rate of £42 is too expensive, particularly that the condition of the course is average. I will say that they had just sanded the greens (not part of this review) and allowed us to play at the twilight rate (after 14:00) of £20 which I think is much more reflective of the general course condition and 2 nines. The course has a nice layout with some interesting holes across the landscape, fortunately the rough was down when we played but there's gorse on every hole for a wayward shot. A links approach is needed and I can imagine holes being completely different to play depending on the wind direction and strength. The staff were very friendly and the clubhouse is a nice place for a beer afterwards (Adnams of course). With two tees playing to 9 greens and a number of public footpaths crossing the course I can see it getting very busy during the Summer months. If you're in the area for a holiday I do recommend it but go for a twilight tee time and be aware it may be a long round in the Summer.

Sunny on the Suffolk Coast

It is hard not to enjoy golf whilst the sun is shining but Southwold really is something special. We played on an evening twilight rate which was great value, better still there were very few people on the course. Every hole offers a different challenge with plenty of gorse to collect poor shots. The fairways were running with the occasional "links" bounce but all to be expected from a coastal course. The greens are relatively small and well protected but offer an exceptional putting surface, most probably the best I have putted on.
We had a quick bite to eat in the Clubhouse before golf and the staff and members made us feel very welcome.

Mr

This course is well worth playing. Greens are excellent. You must manage this course . Some exceptional holes especially across the road the sixth. Wow this is a long par 4, with lots of problems along the way.

Every hole at Southwold offers a completely different challenge and that is why you can never be tired of playing this course.\The greens are in superb condition all year round.\There is a great secluded practice area a short walk from the car park.\The staff and extremely friendly and the food is sensational value. \This is such a picturesque course located a stones throw away from the town and beach. \
