Review for Hunstanton

Reviewer Score:


Hunstanton is a fabulous course. I believe it should rate more highly on this site than it does. (At time of writing it’s number 40). Actually, perhaps there are 39 courses its superior in England… But the confusion arises because its near neighbour, Brancaster, is ranked 18. Now, I prefer the holiday golf at Brancaster to the sterner test at Hunstanton, but in the real world, geographically and in terms of golfing worth, there’s very little between these tracks. Anyway, play Hunstanton. There are many good holes here and they’re especially found on the back nine. That’s simply because the best land closest to the sea has been used for the inward half (and most courses use their seaside land for the front nine – Macrihanish, Balgownie, Troon etc. - so this makes a pleasant change). Also though, play Brancaster. Unlike Hunstanton this place has some great holes, not just good ones. But there are a few ropy ones at Brancaster too. Hunstanton is probably a more serious golf course. But Brancaster – across its mix of great and average holes – has something a jot more magical about it. ANGLOSCOT
