Flempton Golf Club is a traditional members club, respecting the finest aspects of the game. Founded in 1895 it is one of the oldest club’s in the Eastern Region and is situated on the outskirts of historic market town of Bury St Edmunds.

Membership of Flempton Golf Club gives you the opportunity to make new friends and strengthen existing friendships, to share the joy of making that birdie and return to improve on that pulled putt.

The club’s membership has a wide range of skill levels and handicaps, meeting for competitions or more informally so there are many opportunities to join in a game or debate the merits of a technique in the clubhouse.
