Welcome to Waldringfield Golf Club

 

Our attractive par 71, 18 hole course was created in 1983. The course is located on the south bank of the picturesque River Deben, half way along its navigable length from Woodbridge to Felixstowe.

 

Designed by P. Pilgrem as a 9 hole course, Waldringfield was extended to 18 holes in 1987, creating an extremely picturesque heathland course which has developed into a veritable golfing gem. Now measuring 6,046 yards from the white tees it offers an enjoyable challenge to scratch golfers and beginners alike, as well as being particular attractive to older golfers given its flat nature and the ability to use powered trolleys or buggies all year round.

 

In recent years substantial new investment has been committed to the care and maintenance of the course, including the construction of a reservoir which can hold 2 million gallons of water for vital irrigation during those dry summer months. Alternative during wet winter months, our free draining sandy soil allows for virtually uninterrupted play even after the heaviest of down pours.

 

Year on year careful reshaping of greens and fairways, in addition to new sand traps provide an excellent challenge. Nature also provides the hazards in the form of gorse, which pervades the entire course. This prickly shrub with its attractive yellow flowers and delicious almond scent is in bloom for most of the year. All these elements demand accuracy from tee to green whilst still maintaining the ability for fast moving, free flowing play.

 

Returning visitors are amazed such improvements can be made in just a few seasons.
