Tour to Norfolk – 4th to 6th September 2022

Event History

In September 2001 Golf Society Member, John Winter, was inspired to organise a 3-day tour to North-West France. Thanks to an unfailing mix of camaraderie, quality accommodation, excellent cuisine and quality golf courses (including Open Championship venues), annual overseas and UK tours have been well supported by the membership ever since.

The Format

Our Golf Society annual tour this year heads up to Norfolk, staying at Sprowston Hall on the outskirts of Norwich. We will play the cliff top course at Sheringham,  the home course of our past treasurer Chris Sturman who has assured us that the course and the welcome will be second to none. On Day two, we travel south to play Thetford; a James Braid designed heathland classic. It comes with a big reputation and is a relatively short drive away from the hotel. On the final day we steel ourselves to tackle Hunstanton that is ranked #66 in Golf Monthly’s GB&I Top 100. It is an absolute joy to play and links golf at its very best. On Days 1 and 2, we will be playing an 18 hole individual and a team stableford competition. On the final day we will be playing an 18 hole individual stableford competition.

Accommodation

Sprowston Hall is located just outside Norwich with free and extensive car parking available.  The accommodation is modern, contemporary and has a pool, gym, spa facilities and its very own golf course and driving range should you wish to fine tune your golf during your stay.
