The Royal Norwich, formerly based in Hellesdon, moved to its new home at Weston Park, Weston Longville in a £15m investment in September. It had been at its former base for 126 years but the new move saw membership almost triple as well as more women signing up.

Golfing legend Ian Poulter officially opened the new course which was first discussed back in the 1980s but plans scrapped because of a lack of finance. The new course was re-formed with 250,000 tonnes of earth and a reservoir had to be built capable of holding 10m gallons of water.
