Ashdon, near Saffron Walden,
Courses: Safron Walden – Haverhill – Links – The Gog Magog & Heydon Grange
Haverhill Golf Club is a welcoming members’ club located in the tranquil Suffolk countryside. This 18 hole course is set in attractive mature parkland bisected by the River Stour. With strategically placed hazards the course provides a great challenge for golfers of all abilities. Playing the course is a unique test for any golfer, including the excellent putting surfaces which are widely renowned for being some of the best greens in the country. The course is not long by today’s standards, but to score well the emphasis is on accuracy and good course management.
Saffron Walden Golf Club is home to one of the finest parkland golf courses in East Anglia. Set in the picturesque surroundings of Audley End’s famous mansion, the Club also boasts superb views over the town of Saffron Walden.
The Links GC is one of the oldest and most respected courses in Cambridgeshire and the venue for many County and Regional events. This Hotchkin designed 18-hole parkland course enjoys stunning views of the famous Newmarket Racecourses and gallops. The course sits on flat, free-draining terrain making it playable all year.
Built on free draining chalk downland and situated just 3 miles south east of the historic centre of Cambridge, the Gog Magog Golf Club has two stunning and very different courses. The Old Course, opened in 1901, has all the character you would expect from a course with so much history. It has great variety, great views and is a great test for all abilities. The Wandlebury Course, opened in 1997, is now well established and has already hosted Regional Qualifying for The Open for 5 years. Longer than the Old Course and with USGA specification greens, it also has great vistas.
Heydon Grange has full length 18 hole courses (the Essex & Cambs ). The Essex has several lakes, including two on the par 3 fourth signature hole, making this a challenging front nine. The Cambs has a drivable par-4 but overall is the longest of the courses; the final hole is an intimidating long par 3 with water left, right and behind the green. With full greens open all year round, Heydon is a very popular venue for visitors during the autumn and winter
