Marriott Sprowston Manor Hotel & Golf Club

Last Updated:

What we say

A decent parkland golf course with two contrasting nines - the front nine is tree-lined and tighter while the reverse stretch is relatively open and exposed though you need to carefully plot your way round some well placed bunkers. There are probably too many short holes, specially around the turn, for the purist though the short par 4 7th - a sharp left dogleg to a green well guarded by water on the right - is a worthy signature hole. Overall, an impressive all-round golf course with terrific greens and excellent practice facilities, all backed-up by a four star Marriott hotel offering quality accommodation and amenities.

The 6,547-yard course surrounds the spectacular and historic Sprowston Manor, and affords stunning views of the surrounding Norfolk countryside.

    Although a little boring i thoroughly enjoyed this course...mainly because i had only just started playing golf and i didnt need anything too challenging at the time. Lovely setting with the house on site and some picturesque holes. The course was immaculate when i played.

    Up & down, up & down. Only one dog-leg on the whole course. Tees, greens and fairways a disgrace. How they have the cheek to charge £45 a round is beyond me. Thankfully, I didn't have to pay full price but resented £22.50 as well!

    Greens generally very good. The course, last played 4 weeks ago,  is reasonalby benign. Not many really tough holes and the course is a bit samey - up one side then down the other. A large lake comes into play on the back nine and a ditch runs alongside a few of the holes. That said, the fairways are genorous enough to stay out of trouble.

    Flat course that is an easy walk. Tees in good nick and fairly straightforward driving although some good bunker placeemnts! Greens are challenging but in good condition. Can't fault and would recommend. I'll try to play again sometime.
