The Club


A hidden gem in the Suffolk countryside

Flempton Golf Club was founded in 1895. The course condition and outstanding green complexes are excellent all year round, with the course rarely closed during the winter months as the sand-based land drains well. For most of the year the course, is refreshingly uncrowded, with access prioritised for the membership.

Close to the historic market town of Bury St Edmunds, and sitting adjacent to the Lackford Lakes Nature Reserve the club has maintained its traditional ethos and is regarded as one of the finest golf courses in the Eastern Region and one of the best 9-hole golf courses in the UK.

Visitors & Societies are warmly welcomed. However, please note all visits must be arranged in advance with the Club Manager.

Enjoy a game of Petanque

A recent addition to the club and a wonderful game all can play! Ideal for relaxing with a beverage or two, on a summers evening after a stroll around the links.

An opportunity to recount that winning birdie putt or great sandy save to anyone that will listen. The Petanque court is set adjacent to the clubhouse, in the shadows of the pine trees, perfect for socialising with family and friends.
