The Wensum Course is the championship course and the longer of the two 18 hole onsite courses. Host to the 2013 Motocaddy Masters season opener of the PGA Europro Tour, this Par 72 course measures 6,900 yards and requires both distance and accuracy for a successful round.
It features some excellent holes set amongst the beautiful lakes that sit alongside the meandering River Wensum. With an island green and other water hazards throughout, this course provides a testing round for even the most experienced golfer as well as a visual treat from start to finish.
Set on the gentle slopes of the magnificent Wensum Valley, the Valley Course features tree lined fairways, well placed bunkers and challenging greens. Slightly shorter than the Wensum Course, this Par 72 course features holes that range in distance from 280 to 440 yards.
This course demands accuracy off the tee and skill on the undulating greens but is guaranteed to provide an enjoyable round for every standard of golfer.
If you fancy a change of scene, why not head just 15 minutes down the road to Mattishall Golf Club and try out its excellent 9 hole course? The course at Mattishall is a Par 35 with a distance of 3,099 yards but can also be played as an 18 hole, Par 70 course with a distance of 6,170 yards.
This versatile course features one of the longest par 5 holes in the UK at 638 yards, interspersed with a selection of challenging par 3 holes. Mattishall Golf Course provides an excellent starting ground for those who are new to the game but the long, narrow fairways still prove a challenge for the more experienced golfer.
