Will you take on one of the most challenging & mouth-watering courses in Suffolk? If so, get yourself and your clubs along to Newton Green Golf Club just east of Sudbury. There you can enjoy the tests and delights of its exceptional moorland course.
Newton Green Golf Club is situated beside the A134 three miles east of the historic market town towards Colchester. The area is on the edge of Constable Country and near the tourist, picture postcard villages of Long Melford, Lavenham and Clare.
The club is a member of the exclusive Association of James Braid Courses. The legendary Scottish course designer put his hand to the club’s original nine holes, and Newton is one of about 50 clubs that make up the association and allow members to exchange visits at advantageous rates.The Golf Course
The club’s carefully prepared 18-hole course offers a unique experience of heath and parkland golf.
Patience and tidy golf is rewarded on the original part of the course, while golfers can open their shoulders on the new section, which has two par fives, including one of over 550 yards. Par for the course is 69.
Some of the fairways are quite tight so accuracy from the tees is at an absolute premium. Moreover, the greens - which play fast and true anyway - are well guarded by a clutch of well-positioned bunkers that you will need to manoeuvre around with a lot of care to avoid dropping too many shots. Benefiting further from splendid panoramic views, it really is a smashing course.Club House
Our Club House was opened in 1981, and it offers full catering, bar and social facilities. Outside events are catered for.
Now into its second century, the club seeks to show a progressive attitude with a very successful junior section, as well as those for women and seniors. The English Golf Union has recently congratulated the club on its mould-breaking policies devised to attract new members.
Additionally, the club has recently received High Achiever GolfMark status, which recognises high standards in relation to coaching, creating a good playing environment, child protection and offering a high quality of care in the junior ranks.Visitors to Newton Green
