    Founded in 1893, Woodbridge Golf Club, Suffolk is a

    traditional, friendly members club situated in a Suffolk coast

    and Heath Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, comprising

    27 holes of challenging heathland golf.

    We are a haven for golfers of all ages and abilities; the 18-hole

    Heath course provides a serious golfers challenge all year

    round, whilst our full length 9-hole Forest course is suitable

    for all standards.

    Both courses are maintained to the very highest standards

    and when coupled to with our practice facilities, dedicated

    coaching team and full clubhouse facilities, we are able to

    offer the full golfing package to all our members and visitors.

    The club has green fee rates commensurate with the high

    quality of the course and membership enquiries are well received.

    Golf has been played here for more than 120 years and we

    welcome you to come along and join us to see what makes

    us special.

    One of the oldest in the county and without a doubt one of

    the best, Woodbridge Golf Club was formed largely due to

    the work of Major Howey.

    At a largely-attended meeting in 1893 the club was

    founded and, after a suitable ground was selected, more

    than 40 gentlemen put their names down to pay the annual

    subscription of 21 shillings.

    Major J E W Howey announced that he would guarantee the

    rent of the land for a year or two till the club had got a good

    start and by the end of the meeting Major Howey had been

    elected as the clubs first President.

    Progress was swift. At the first AGM on January 31, 1895,

    approval was given for a clubhouse to be built. Mr F J W

    Wood, the new Captain, arranged for Wrinch & Sons to

    complete the work at a cost of 300.

    In 1909 an Exhibition Match was staged between James Taylor

    and James Braid, two of the original Great Triumvirate

    along with Harry Vardon. Braid set a new course record of

    65 and was to return to the club many times after the Great

    War to advise on course changes.

    In 1930 a golf writer described Woodbridge as a golfers paradise,

    admiring the wiry heathland turf and fine panoramic view of the

    surrounding county from the 10th (now the 9th) tee.

    Between the wars judicious work by the committee saw them

    buy various pockets of land to extend the clubs boundaries

    and, in 1953, the remainder of the Bristol estates came up for

    sale and was purchased for 1400.

    As the clubs financial position improved, a new clubhouse

    was built at a cost of 50,000, which opened on April 24,

    1969 and, when the Lions Den and 14 acres of land became

    available, it too was purchased for 5,000 and provided most

    of the ground needed to build a nine-hole course at a cost

    of 6,300.

    The great storm of October 1987 proved to be an ill wind

    that blew Woodbridge GC some good fortune since adjoining

    land, which had seen the trees flattened, was purchased from

    the Forestry Commission a
