Cromer builds for the future

Royal Cromer Golf Club has planted hundreds of trees and gorse bushes at the start of a project to enhance the renowned clifftop course. Many of the trees have been planted between the first and 18th fairways and, as they grow over coming years, will give added definition to the holes.

Royal Cromer Golf Club has planted hundreds of trees and gorse bushes at the start of a project to enhance the renowned clifftop course.

Many of the trees have been planted between the first and 18th fairways and, as they grow over coming years, will give added definition to the holes.

New tees are also being built on the 8th and 11th holes to add some length. There are also plans to move some bunkers on the course.

Royal Cromer, in common with other long-established courses, has found that some bunkers no longer pose the required challenge for low handicap golfers because modern equipment has taken them out of play. At the same time, higher handicap players find they are facing an extra degree of difficulty. The changes will redress the balance.
