We have two championship golf courses on offer here at SbN. The Gainsborough and the Constable, both created in the early ’70s and named after two local famous artists, Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable. Our courses are both well-established and include the challenges of lakes, streams and woodland. They have also played host to major national and international championships such as the PGA Europro Tour, European Senior Tour PGA Seniors Championships, European Challenge Tour (The English Challenge) and the Ladies European Tour Access Series!
The Gainsborough Course
The Gainsborough course measures over 7,000 yards with a Par of 71. The undulating terrain and four substantial lakes challenge the skills of golfers of all abilities. The 10th requires a drive and second shot over the same lake, when played from the back tee, and has been voted one of the most outstanding holes in East Anglia by the Professional Golf Association (PGA).
The amateur course record from the white tees is 63
In competitions during 2017, the 10th hole has only recorded 4 birdies
The 10th hole is the hardest on the course, with an average score of 5.77 for men and 6.64 for ladies
The Gainsborough is 7,098 yards from the black tees and 6,321 yards from the white tees
The Constable Course
The Constable course is also set amongst wooded plantations with several natural water hazards in peaceful countryside. It measures 6,544 yards with a Par of 72, and, as with the Gainsborough, the final hole presents a formidable drive over one of the large lakes, to a plateau green with the Sports Bar beckoning beyond.
