If you're looking for a great golf course to play with stunning views then look no further as Sheringham will provide some of the best views you could ask for. The course is set amongst the cliffs of the Norfolk coast and is neighboured by Cromer golf course which takes a very much similar approach to Sheringham. It is classed as more of a downland course than a links course as it is not quite low enough down to be a links course but gets windy like one! The condition at Sheringham can be hit and miss and so for that reason it is not quite ranked as high as it could potentially be.
The 1st few holes start off fairly straight forward back and forth however as soon as you get to the 5th hole the whole world suddenly opens up to you as you are hit with the magnificent view of the fairway sat beside the sea. Won't find many other courses with views better than this. The 6th hole is very much the same, a downhill par 3 which can play much longer if the wind is in your face. The back 9 in my opinion is better than the front and the 11th is a great par 3 which has a tad bit of royal Dornoch esque in it with all the gorse around the green. The 17th is a great par 4 playing about 430 yards and a tough drive with train tracks right and gorse/bunkers left. The approach shot almost reminds of the 12th hole on the old at Sunningdale with the trees and hill to the left behind the green (although is not quite as good!).
Overall Sheringham is a nice course with some good views and definitely worth playing if you are in the area. A solid 4 ball course but could definitely be more if the condition was better.
