Description
Host to two Open Championships - in 1909, won by the great JH Taylor, and in 1920, won by George Duncan - and has been made one of four Final Open Qualifying venues from 2014-2017. Also host to the prestigious Amateur Championship in June 2013.

Like any top links course you need to stay patient and plot your way round the course to avoid the intimidating sand traps and knee-high rough. The greens are fast and true and your putter needs to be fairly 'hot'

The course design is not the most inventive I've seen, however the hollows and mounds are fascinating and the greens dramatic - plenty of 40 foot putts which strike fear in to the soul. The rough is typically destructive as you experience at most links courses, but the main thing it lacks are the huge bunkers which you find on par 3's at Hunstanton and Brancaster. Therefore a number of holes become quite similar. We played on a Thursday because there is a 2 ball policy in force on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, perhaps this was the reason for it being so busy as we were backed up a number of times. If you want to get 36 holes in (£100 for the day) then make sure you're off by 10am otherwise you'll be playing the final holes in the dark as we did. Great course overall and friendly staff which makes a change for an older course, also not too many ex-servicemen wandering around with dogs which is what you usually suffer on links courses. When the wind blew and the rain came in it was full of drama and it's worth getting wet for the experience of fighting nature, but if it lasted longer than an hour I don't know if I'd have spent a full day in it so check the forecast before you book.
The Bear

Perhaps the easiest course to get a game on that has hosted the Open, although before WW1 I think. Right up against the beach, one of the tee boxes is actually part of the "sea wall". Fine links course in excellent condition, nearly always a breeze, no tree's, rough is quite nasty in places, clumps of which act like ball magnets. Bunkers vary from the shallow to the "how do I get out here", and although overall the course is very flat there are quite a few humps and hollows to attract the slightly off line shots.
On a nice bright sunny day an ideal place to play golf, rather bleak on a wet windy day.
Visitors must play in 2-balls so beware if three of you go along. And it is strictly enforced! Depending on wind you will have 9 holes from 2nd either into or with the wind, the other nine holes being the opposite direction. Lack of landmarks makes the course a little unremarkable. You definitely require accuracy and reasonable distance from tee - especially into wind. Not suited to high handicappers - I read the limit is 18. Very good lunch from bar. Work on greens (9/00) slowed play to 3 1/2 hours for the round.
