About Royal Worlingham & Newmarket Golf Club
The golf course was founded in 1893 and is the home course of Cambridge University. Its 9 holes are laid on gently undulating sandy-based soil that drains well all the year round. It is an excellent winter course because temporary greens are not needed.
Royal Worlington has been called the best 9 hole course in the world; while this may be debatable, it is a fact that it regularly appears in the top 100 golf course lists of various magazines.
A modest opening par 5 is followed by a tricky, long par 3 of 220 yards. The 3rd is a short but difficult par 4 requiring accuracy of both tee and approach shot, surely one of the best golf holes anywhere. The 4th is an interesting par 5, requiring a deft touch on the approach. The 5th is a short par 3 where embarrassingly high scores are commonplace - you have to play it to appreciate the perils. The 6th is a great par 4 over 460 yards long, the 7th a par 3 normally played in a crosswind across a valley to a lightning fast green. The 8th is another par 4 over 460 yards long, with well-placed bunkers waiting for the unwary player. The 9th is a short par 4 where caution pays dividends, and then the Clubhouse beckons enticingly with its hospitality and refreshments.
Then of course you play it again - several times if you are here for the day - and always, somehow, each hole remains interesting, different, a challenge to be enjoyed and savoured.
