Decent little 9 hole course
Mar 2021 • Friends
A good little 9 hole in Ipswich. Course is well maintained, greens are nicely looked after. No booking system so means you can get on straight away. Can only play 18 (no option for 9), but a good day out nonetheless

Good little 9 hole
Jul 2020
Really good greens - a lovely little course just off Ipswich. Cheap to go round. Only 9 holes so the 18 is just a run round the 9 twice. Really good greens, fairways well kept, can't complain. Not allowed to use driving clubs on the first hole though - why!

Lovely little course
Jul 2019 • Friends
We've played this course many times usually when our friends are back from abroad. The course is fairly short, four par 4's and the rest par 3's but it's a very enjoyable to play and you'll travel a long way to find a more picturesque course as it's set on the banks of the River Orwell. The conditions are excellent and compliments to the ground staff for the greens. After 18 holes we stop for lunch and have always found a friendly welcome in the restaurant with excellent food at very acceptable prices. This all contributes to a very pleasant few hours, highly recommended.

Worth a visit
Nov 2018 • Solo
Visited last weekend with my son, we went out early and were greeted by a small army of greenkeepers. Greens being switched, leaves being blown and subsequently the greens were being cut. I was really impressed with the condition of the course, good bunkers and generally well kept.

OK its not the longest 9 hole around but its still presents it challenges regarding ball off the tee, get it wrong on some holes and you'll not have a clear second shot.

Greens are in the main undulating with some none too subtle contours.

We both enjoyed the course, great views of the River Orwell and worthy of taking a few pictures.

Friendly chap collected our money post round and I would not hesitate to return

£15 is a good price for a Saturday.

Would like the greenstaff to be acknowledged for the hard work and course presentation.

Superb setting for this 9 hole golf course. Good food and excellent service.
Jul 2018 • Friends
We played golf as a group of 36 players followed by a very tasty lunch. It has quite a tricky course but most enjoyable. Situated beside the River Orwell with super views of the boats a really lovely venue.

The management and staff did everything possible to make our day enjoyable and we will certainly return again.

Great course, unfriendly staff
Aug 2017 • Friends
As keen new golfers I went to Alnesburgh Priory with my friend and inlaws. We're no professionals, but wore smart clothing (collars) and 2 out of the 4 had golf shoes on. On arrival we were inspected but the grumpy staff member who seemed to not want anyone to go on the course. He complained about our shoes, despite the fact they were all flat and appropriate and made it quite clear he didn't like visitors to the course. That's a great shame as the course is fantastic. Good length holes for new golfers, with challenging bunkers and mixture of flat and contoured greens. The price is £12 a round; it's arguably as good as a £35+ course so well worth the money. No tee off time required, just pay and play.

If they had a more friendly welcome they would probably be very popular.. Maybe that's why he wasn't.

We were sorry to read your rather mixed review. We will speak with our staff and ensure golfers receive a warmer welcome in future. They have been asked to check golfers attire is appropriate after some arrived in flip flops, but there are ways to do this without being offensive. Thank you for your comments on the course itself. We will pass them onto the grounds staff who will be delighted to have there efforts acknowledged. By the way it's £12 on a week day for a days ticket, you can play as many rounds as you wish. We do hope you will give our course another try.
