Golf packages on offer in Norfolk
December 16, 2010

The George Hotel in Norwich has teamed up with two of Norfolk's finest golf courses to offer a great overnight deal.

The package includes a round on Sunday at either Eaton or Bawburgh golf clubs, overnight stay at the three-star George Hotel close to the centre of Norwich and a further 18 holes the following day either at the course played the previous day or at the second course.

The price, based on two people sharing a twin or double room, is £99 for both rounds plus overnight accommodation and a full English breakfast.

An extra night's stay will cost £35 per person.

There is a ten per cent discount from the a la carte menu if residents prefer to eat in the hotel.

The hotel is also offering to arrange special packages for larger groups which can include a boat trip for up to 12 people, lessons from the pro at either course, shopping trips, pamper nights, gourmet evenings and trips to shows or concerts in Norwich.

Eaton Golf Club was founded in 1910 and has been described by course reviewers as a hidden gem and a golfing oasis as it is only two miles from Norwich city centre.

A 6118 yard par 70, it is tree-lined and demands accurate tee shots to beat the challenges it offers. And it is remarkably hilly considering it is situated in the heart of "flat" Norfolk.

For the ladies the course is a par 72, 5562 yards.

The clubhouse has views over the 1st , tenth and 18th fairways.

The course at Bawburgh has long been popular with Norfolk golfers. Designed in 1979 by former professional Burt Kelly and Alan Barnard it was originally a par 70 and in 1991 further modified to be a par 72 with two new holes.

The course undulates through beautiful landscape and has interesting tees and challenging greens.

The 460-yard par fourth 18 th is regarded as one of the most difficult in the county.
