Royal West Norfolk

Luffenham Heath Golf Club

England, East Anglia
Course Opened: 1911

Draped over the gentle folds of England’s smallest county, Luffenham Heath’s undoubted golfing charms unfurl delight­fully among its ramble of hawthorns, gorse, oaks and pines. While the firm, diving fairways were first conceived on Earl Ancaster’s land by the legendary Harry Colt and Charles Alison, most of the credit for ‘The Heath’ goes to James Braid who put his imprint on the original design. Braid’s signature features are much in evidence - cross bunkering and grassy wastes, and very subtly undulating greens hemmed in by sculpted traps. It was mostly untouched until 2004, when the club boldly embarked on a major renovation and modernisation project under the skilful guidance of Dr Martin Hawtree...

Framed by deep, swaying fescue, the holes constantly change direction and several heart in the mouth moments confront you throughout the round and the dangers ebb and flow at every turn. Added to the great golf, its serene atmosphere always makes it a delightful wander through the best of Middle England and is widely regarded as one of the finest and most challenging heathland courses in the Midlands and beyond.
