About Flempton Golf Course
Flempton Golf Course, established in 1895, is a hidden gem amongst the Suffolk countryside. The heathland course features traditional pine trees and gorse, intermingled with mature English hardwood lies in a gently sloping landscape. The 9 hole course, laid out in a distinctive cloverleaf layout, has an inherent appeal to all standards of golfers.
Flempton golf course offers plenty of opportunities to test playing skills with eighty bunkers strategically placed over the course. Temporary greens are rare due to the free draining light land allowing year round enjoyment. These superb greens are the envy of other clubs and remarked upon by so many guests. The clubhouse is of traditional architecture, sited to take advantage of the view overlooking the 1st tee and 18th green and offers a chance to relax and unwind. Excellent catering facilities are provided and a warm welcome is extended to visitors.
Flempton golf course is adjacent to Lackford nature reserve and lakes which attract a local population of wild life; with kingfishers particularly encouraged by specific planting near the lake adjacent to the fifth.
Close to the market town of Bury St Edmunds, Flempton golf club has maintained its traditional ethos and is regarded as one of the finest 9 hole courses in the country.
