ALDEBURGH GOLF CLUB WELCOMES VISITORS TO BOTH THE CHAMPIONSHIP AND THE RIVER COURSE ON WEEKDAYS AND WEEKENDS THROUGHOUT THE YEAR.

“And for anyone who, given the choice between a literary talk in Aldeburgh and a round of golf, would guiltily opt for the latter, the Aldeburgh Golf Club is within easy reach and, as important, notably friendly and unstuffy”

GOLFING TRIPS 

East Suffolk’s Heritage Coast is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Aldeburgh, at the heart of this lovely part of the country, is approximately 2 hours from central London. Aldeburgh is an ideal centre for an active holiday, particularly a golfing break, with excellent restaurants and its acclaimed Fish and Chips.

The course at Thorpeness, designed by James Braid, is very close to Aldeburgh and the two courses are a challenging and interesting golfing destination, particularly in winter. Slightly further afield are the heathland courses at Woodbridge and Ipswich (Purdis Heath), both also built on sandy, fast draining soil – ideal for golf at all times of year.

JUNIORS

OUR JUNIOR SECTION CONTINUES TO GROW

At Aldeburgh, we are proud of the strength and heritage of our junior section.  We currently have over 100 Under 18 junior members, boys and girls, of all golfing abilities.  

For beginners, the club’s friendly Professional team hold regular, fun and relaxed group coaching sessions throughout the year.  They also provide group and individual coaching for better players.

As our juniors develop, we encourage them to use the 9 hole River Course to improve their skills, and gain a handicap.  This is the ideal time for them to consider joining the club as junior members.  Then, once they have a handicap of 28 or less they can play on the Championship Course. 

Junior competitions are held throughout the year on both the River Course and Championship Course, with particular focus on school holidays.  Many of these competitions are played for silverware, and some of our trophies are more than 50 years old.  We have a growing list of matches with other Suffolk clubs.  We also hold our Junior Golf Week in late July, which includes the Aldeburgh Junior Open when the best junior golfers from the region come together to play for the John Whately-Smith Putter.

We encourage all our juniors to play, and develop an appreciation for, 2 ball golf, both singles and foursomes.

DRESS CODE

Aldeburgh Golf Club requests members and visitors to maintain a standard of dress appropriate for a golf club. On the main course and in all areas of the clubhouse smart casual dress is acceptable, subject to the following:

  • No denim jeans, collarless shirts or trainers. 
  • Golf shoes and rainwear must not be worn in the clubhouse beyond the locker rooms.
  • Men may wear tailored shorts with knee high long socks on the golf course or with knee high long socks or no socks in the clubhouse but not with short socks.
  • Jackets are encouraged in the Dining Room.
  • For all club matches, jackets and ties must be worn, but match managers have full discretion to vary this rule to suit conditions on the day.

Mobile phones and similar devices may be used in the car park for calls, but in the clubhouse may only be used in silent mode for diary purposes. They can be used on the course for medical emergencies.
