Aldeburgh Golf Course

Aldeburgh Golf Course

Established in 1884, Aldeburgh Golf Club has two courses: the 18 hole Championship Course, and the delightful, 9 hole River Course (which is more suitable for beginners and high handicap golfers)

The Championship Course is ranked 31st in England by Golf World. Built on maritime heathland, there are far-reaching views of the River Alde and the North Sea.

The fast-draining, sandy soil ensures that the course is playable all year.

Aldeburgh, in association with Thorpeness Golf Club, was chosen by the English Golf Union to host the 2012 English Amateur Seniors Championship.  This event was judged by both competitors and organisers to be an outstanding success.  In the past the club has staged a number of English Ladies Close Championships, the Oxford and Cambridge University Match and numerous Suffolk County Championships.

Aldeburgh is a two-ball course, and promotes foursomes (alternate shot) regarded by many as the finest form of the game. A foursome usually takes no more than 3 hours, so a round of singles and a foursome can easily be played in a day, even at weekends. There is a green fee specifically for foursomes players.

Visitors are welcome to play the Championship Course on weekdays and weekends throughout the year, subject to sight of a handicap certificate and availability of tee times.

To book please contact the Secretary on 01728 452890, the Professional on 01728 453309 or email the Club on

The club's 9 hole River Course is open to all players regardless of handicap.
