Course Overview

Heacham Manor Golf Course is for all levels of golfer. The course has been designed as an American-style links for all levels of player.

It is intersected by two rivers, both of which feature on six of the 18 holes. See the bottom of the page for an overview of each hole.

Course Status & Information

Course Status: The course is OPEN.

Course Condition: Good condition with fairways thickening up after winter, greens are playing well.

One Of The Best In Norfolk

A wide variety of native trees and shrubs have been planted to enhance the difficulty of the holes and complement the 'links' feel to the course. There are also four lakes, the largest of which is the backdrop for the 'signature hole' the par-three, seventh.

An Enjoyable Course

The front nine are the more ‘American links style’ and include three large lakes to be avoided. The first and second of those are connected by a winding stream fed by a weir that protects the front of the short, par-three fifth. The third and largest lake is the setting for the seventh, which requires a well-struck shot to carry the 100 yards of water fronting the green. The eleventh also incorporates the large lake, which challenges you to take on the green with your second shot.

The next three holes enter parkland, with views of The Wash from the fourteenth. The fifteenth plays from an elevated tee towards the hotel, in full view of the terrace and conservatory. The final three holes cross the Heacham River and the 18th is a reachable par 5, but beware the Ringstead River and Ray's Creek beside the green.

The course is designed for players of all standards, and has four sets of tee positions. The championship tee plays a course of 6786 yards while junior tees are around, 4500 yards.

A distinct character, born from its beautiful Norfolk coast location

Heacham Manor Golf Course might be young, but it is growing up fast. On the undulating ‘links’ style front nine the landscaping has settled in and the shrubs have thrived, while the trees of the parkland back nine are just how nature intended.

Recent drainage work has rid the course of standing water in the winter, while the water features remain as challenging as ever. Thanks to our head green-keeper, the greens are faster and the fairways thicker.

Last but no way least, our 19th, the Avocet Bar, has become a popular local watering hole.

"Following the development and seeding of Heacham Manor Golf Course in Hunstanton (Norfolk) back in 2008 the grasses have been nurtured and loved throughout the grow in period and ongoing establishments of the course. The Manor has been designed and built for traditional British summer conditions, hot and dry, and with 2018 being one of the driest and hottest summers on record, "The Manor" is showing off its true glory as a manicured American styled inland links course, with firm long hitting fairways and probably the finest fescue greens in Norfolk, putting true and fast. Being one of the newest courses in Norfolk, it is already up there with the best and the next few months at The Manor will be a truly amazing experience."

Pro's Tip

There is a large spine on the left side of the green, so it is advisable to approach this green from the right half of the fairway.

Golf Course Hole 1 at Heacham Manor

 

Pro's Tip

Keep the tee shot to the left or over the large poplar trees. You will need to follow this with an accurate 2nd that needs to be as close to the left hand approach bunker as possible, for an open shot to the green.

Golf Course Hole 2 at Heacham Manor

 

 

Pro's Tip

From the white and blue tees you have the choice to go right of the river or over it, but from the yellow tee big hitters will most definitely want to go for the green.

Golf Course Hole 3 at Heacham Manor

 

 

Pro's Tip

Stay to the right on tee shot to avoid the dyke which runs beside the first 3/4 of the whole. The 2nd shot must lay up short of the right hand lake for an easy shot to green.

Golf Course Hole 4 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

A small creek meanders from the left to right which will gather the not so good tee shot. However the real hazard on this hole is the hidden lake at the back left waiting for the long pulled tee shot.

Golf Course Hole 5 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

A slight dog leg right to left with fairway bunkers all the way, it is important to stay on the fairway if you intend to get up in two shots, so an accurate tee shot is required.

Golf Course Hole 6 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

The par 3 - 7th is one of Heacham's signature holes. The Club selection here is vital; as the last 100 yeards is carry over water with bunkers left and right.

Golf Course Hole 7 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

The three fairway bunkers on the right will automatically force you to go left, however beware of the hidden lake on the left waiting for that stray tee shot. The elevated green slopes from back to front and requires a perfect 2nd shot.

Golf Course Hole 8 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

The drive here needs to be as tight as possible, because of the hidden lake on the left. On the approach it is advisable to be short rather than long because of the dyke at the back of the green.

Golf Course Hole 9 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

Your drive must go just to the left of the two right hand bunkers to avoid the lake on the left waiting for the pulled tee shot. It will require a well struck iron to find the very large 10th green.

Golf Course Hole 10 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

Your tee shot must head towards the pump house, then, depending on the wind direction, you have the option to lay up short of the lake or go for the long carry over to the well protected green.

Golf Course Hole 11 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

Your drive must be aimed towards the white house in the distance as you need to favour the left side of the fairway if you intend to attack a tricky back right pin placing with your 2nd shot.

Golf Course Hole 12 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

Aim your tee shot to go between the eyebrow bunkers and you will find the middle of the fairway. Once in position club selection is now important as the 2nd shot can be deceiving to a well protected green.

Golf Course Hole 13 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

Your drive must flirt with the right hand bunker as everything will fall to the left side of the fairway, although the left side is where you want to be to get a shot at the green.

Club selection is important as this hole looks longer than it really plays. The subtle contours on the green can make putting very challenging.

Golf Course Hole 15 at Heacham Manor

Pro's Tip

Your drive must find the fairway avoiding Ray's Creek on the left of the hole, at the same time not flying through the fairway into the Heacham River. Make your seccond shot count, as the undulating green is just over the Heacham River.

Golf Course Hole 17 at Heacham Manor

 

 

Pro's Tip

A well positioned tee shot short of the Heacham river is needed. Staying to the right on your 2nd shot then allows you the chance to pitch your 3rd shot to the difficult green, with the back left corner sloping down towards Ray's Creek.
