Review for Sheringham

Reviewer Score:


Loved Sheringham, lovely layout where you can watch a steam train come past while you play.

Firstly I think it had the best greens of the courses we played up there.

The course starts really well, 1 is a cracker of an opener, allowing you to open your shoulders off the tee and presenting the need for an accurate second, short comes back to you, left, right and long is trouble. 2 is a nice par 5 and 3 was a hard par 4 on the day, mainly due to the wind. 4 requires a tee shot in play and accuracy again to the green.

5 is the best hole on the course, 450 odd yard par 4 off the back tee (which we stupidly did). The view is fantastic and if you are not long off the tee, you will have a fairway wood in your hand with a blind shot to the well protected green, I speak from experience. The long par 3 6 is another good hole.

The course is not quite so good then until 9 which is a great par 4. The par 3 11th is a nice hole, make sure you find the middle of the green, as the front of the green will bring your ball back of the side and into a bunker. 16 and 17 are also nice holes, the former inviting you to have a go an the latter having a lovely approach, both run alongside the railway line. 18 is a nice hole, loads of room up the left but there are bunkers if you take this route.

My one negative was that too many times there are thick gorse bushes almost lining the fairways and it can become sole destroying if you are just missing fairways and losing balls.

All in though a great course in great condition.
