Owner description: Gorleston Golf club the most 'Easterly Golf Course in Britain' the 7th green and the 8th tee are the most easterly part of this cliff top course. Built on the cliffs of Gorleston sea front the views are spectacular looking over the North Sea. Gorleston is a good test of golf and the food is always first class served either in the lounge or dining room overlooking the 1st fairway and the sea.

“Excellent”
Reviewed 4 October 2012

My son chose this venue for his wedding reception and what an excellent choice this turned out to be. The whole experience could not be faulted in anyway, superb food, service, hospitality, quite simply 5star treatment at an unbelievably low cost. A memorable day just simply made all the more special.
Thank you to everyone at the Club who were involved

“Snobbery knows no bounds here”
Reviewed 29 September 2012

If you want to rub shoulders with wannabees, this is the place. Snobbery knows no bounds here. Average beer and average food.
The golf course is Ok but there are better.

Thank you for your comments following your recent visit to the club. As a private members’ club we constantly strive to meet and maintain the standards expected by our members and visitors; that’s why we are proud that our catering is widely considered as ‘one of the best’ at any golf club in the area and our locally sourced Ales are a firm favourite with all beer lovers following a great round of golf. Consequently, we are disappointed to hear that your initial experience of our club did not live up to your expectations and therefore we hope to be given the opportunity to welcome you back to make your second visit as enjoyable as previous TripAdvisor reviewers.

“Company Annual Golf Competition”
Reviewed 14 September 2012

Gorleston Golf Club was chosen to host our annual golf competition as a number of our employees had played the course previously and had recommended it. As a group, it would be fair to say that there was a varying level of "ability" amongst our ranks...

Prior to the day, the communication from the Assistant Secretary Jane was excellent, and she was extremely helpful in accomodating our ever changing requests, from the number of attendees to providing bacon rolls and coffee before the event.

On arrival, we were genially greeted by the Secretary David who provided us with the "Nearest The Pin" and "Longest Drive" markers, and also to inform us that there would be a discounted price as the greens had only just been tended, which we thought was extremely generous. The course itself was in excellent condition and challenging for all involved, especially the cliff top holes running parallel to the sea which appeared to magically attract golf balls regularly! It is worth noting if attending as part of a 'society' that there is a halfway house just after the 10th hole which can be used to store drinks and snacks for the attendees which is at no extra cost - this provided a welcome breather to the majority of us.

After the competition had been completed, we reconvened in the bar to mull over our performances and were warmly greeted by the staff and club members alike. As part of the package, we had arranged a two-course meal to be provided and this was absolutely superb, by far the best food any of the courses we have used over the years has provided.

The whole experience was fantastic and we would like to thank all the staff and members who were both friendly and welcoming.

Thank you for your wonderful comments following your company’s annual golf day which I have circulated to all the members of the team who had a part in making your day a success. We are always pleased to hear that we are getting everything right for our large group / society visitors with the personal touches for a truly memorable day so that you all want to return soon - but perhaps with more golf balls for the cliff top holes!

“Very Friendly Club”
Reviewed 12 September 2012

The course was in excellent condition. We arrived there unannounced at 6.30 in the morning, not knowing what time the club opened and was greeted by one of the club members and he was most helpful. He told us we could play off and pay when we finished, which we did. We had a pleasant drink in the club house afterwards.
