What we say
The 8th and 9th could be oscar winners in a leading strategy role, with several others vying for best supporting hole. A course to enjoy before the North Sea swallows it up. Old fashioned links at its best. For great character and memorable holes, quirky ‘Brancaster’ has few peers.
This golf course lies on a wonderfully natural strip of true linksland and, in addition to its natural beauty, the golf course is memorable for its huge and perfectly placed black sleepered bunkers and the areas of marsh that fill with water when the tide is high. Also, the old clubhouse is well worth checking out - the impressive boards within it contain many a royal name.
The golf club is cut off at high tide and has long been investing in a gallant battle with coastal erosion, one that it currently appears to be winning. The links has a wonderfully ancient feel, the sleepered bunkers being a rare design feature and the 8th is a terrific 'thinkers' par 5 requiring two hits over water.
The Royal West Norfolk Golf Club is a classic, traditional links course which was founded in 1892 and located between Brancaster Bay and the sea marshes. Little has changed in this remote and tranquil corner of Norfolk for about a century. Legendary golf writer Bernard Darwin once wrote there is not a scarier sight in golf than standing on the first tee at Royal West Norfolk Golf Club, or Brancaster as it is better known. Note: The Royal West Norfolk is a two-ball course.
Accommodation: The Briarfields and The Manor in Titchwell and the White Horse in Brancaster Staithe.
