Built on a former Newmarket steeplechase course and polo grounds, the original 18 holes at Links Golf Club were set out in 1903, by whom we do not know.
However, Colonel S.V. Hotchkin redesigned the layout in the 1930s and this stylish course is still the one that golfers play today. But, unlike Woodhall Spa, don't expect to find the Colonel's cavernous bunkers here in Newmarket.
Although the Links Golf Club has a Suffolk postal address, the club is affiliated to the Cambridgeshire Area Golf Union, so we've included it in our Cambridgeshire Best In County rankings.
