Sprowston Manor Overview | NCG Top 100s: GB&I Golf Resorts

Championship Golf Course

Sprowston Manor is home to a championship standard golf course, which has been remodelled by Ross McMurray in recent years. The Par 71 course runs at more than 6,500 yards from the tips, and there are 70 strategically placed bunkers and several water features which are ready to catch golfers of all abilities out. The course has played host to the PGA EuroPro Tour and the Trilby Tour.  
The opening couple of holes at Sprowston offer early birdie opportunities. The 2nd, a 480-yard par 5, is the best of those, if you can avoid the seven bunkers littered down the hole. The 7th is one of the quirkier holes on the property. A sharp dog-leg left that only requires a long iron or hybrid off the tee to reach the corner. Some may be tempted to cut the corner, but danger lurks. 8 is very much drivable at just 265 yards from the back tees, but there are five bunkers and plenty of trees around. 
As the front nine started with birdie opportunities, the back nine begins with bogey possibilities. 10 is a par 3 of more than 210 yards, while the 11th is a 470-yard par 4 with water on the left side of the fairway. 16 is of a similar vein, measuring 475 yards from the tips, and with three bunkers fairway bunkers awaiting errant drives. The closing hole at Sprowston Manor is a long par 5, and a three-shotter for most. Four fairway bunkers are in play off the tee, with the hole then slightly bending to the left and back towards the clubhouse. It is a birdie opportunity for some, but for others, it could be a card wrecker to finish.
