What the club says: Stowmarket is a mature course, with a wide variety of trees that provides a wonderful spectrum of colour throughout the changing seasons.

At 6107 yards, Stowmarket is a par 69 that is rarely beaten, even by the most accomplished of players.

It is challenging enough for the English Golf Union to designate it as a "Centre of Excellence" to use on a regular basis to develop and train the county's best Junior Golfers.

Best Suffolk Parkland

For me, the best parkland course in Suffolk.

The course has a great layout and is always is excellent condition, the addition of drainage on some of the greens has really help it during the wet months.

The par 3 4th is a best at nearly 250 yards.

It does feel tight in places but you'll have to be really silly to not be able to rescue something if off line. The greens are small which is great for honing those approach shots and the greens are tricky to read.

Should be enjoyed by players of all abilities.

Best Parkland

Stunning Parkland course and the best of its kind in the area.

The layout is challenging but fair, some of the holes will have you thinking off the tee - especially the 247 yard par 3!

Course is forgiving and fair meaning that golfers of all abilities will enjoy the challenge and during the summer this course will give nay a run for its money.

Some lovely views too.

Lovely course in excellent condition

Very good course, wide fairways with very little rough. Greens very quick, and challenging, with bunkers very strategically placed.

Stunning Parkland

One of Suffolks finest parkland courses.

Stowmarket is always is amazing condition, the greens are some of the best around.

The course is quite tight off the tee but if you do end up in trouble as long as you are sensible you can still make a score.

Watch out for the 4th - the 248 yard par 3 - is so much fun.

Stow has such a fun layout with no 2 holes the same and anyone golfer of any ability will enjoy their visit here.

First time at Stow- Will be back

I only live 15 miles from Stowmarket but had never played the course. Received a warm welcome and a fantastic full English breakfast.
Considering the lack of rain recently I felt that the course was in excellent condition with the fairways in good order and true and fast greens.
Personally preferred the front 9 as it had a little more variety than the back 9.
I felt the course was well laid out and easy for a first timer to see where the next tee box was.
There were a few blind shots which is fine so I'm confident on a second visit that I could knock a few shots off what I scored today. The course is a parkland course which was a nice change from my normal links style course.
Had a couple of nice drinks in the excellent clubhouse afterwards.
Will definitely be back.

Top quality Parkland.

One of Suffolk's finest.

Great layout and excellent variety of holes from a 250 yard par 3 to the 450 yard par 4 17th!.

The course is always in fantastic condition and new drainage work means it stays dryer in the winter months.

Fairly forgiving off the tee and if you do go off line more often than not you will be able to get in back in play.

Greens are superb all year round.

A top track.

Best in the area

In terms of general condition this has to be one of the best in the area.

The greens were lightening fast and will catch you out in places.

The course itself is a great challenge and you need to miss in the right places. The course is fairly forgiving and if you find yourself in the trees you will have a shot out to and extent.

Some holes really get you thinking off the tee too.

All round a great test in great condition.

A rolling park land course with great views especially on the back nine, some tricky holes which includes the longest par three in Suffolk.

Highly Enjoyable

Golfshake Team ReviewI really like this course.
A great mixture of shorter and longer holes and the layout is probably right up there with the best in the area.
The condition is always fantastic and some new drainage work that has been put in will work wonders during the wetter months.
Higher handicappers should also be able to enjoy this course, whilst it is fairly tree lined you should never really get into too much trouble.
My only issue is the green fee cost.

Golfshake Team ReviewNice track. Tough start and then feels like it gets easier round the turn but then a 16&17 are great holes.
Im not a fan of courses finishing with par 3's which this does.

Can be tight and wide in places which is a good combination so can be enjoyed by all.

Greens were great but tough to read.
