The unforgettable cliff-top course that has a special place in golf history

Why Royal Cromer, an Old Tom Morris Classic in Norfolk, is a must-play
 

Spectacular scenery, a rich history and top-class seaside golf all combine to make Royal Cromer an unforgettable experience.

Perched on a clifftop overlooking the North Sea, this historic masterpiece is one of the finest courses on the Norfolk coast.

History

Founded in 1888, the club attained royal status through the patronage of the Prince of Wales, later to become King Edward VII.

Some of the game’s greatest architects have left their mark on Royal Cromer, including James Braid, JH Taylor and Old Tom Morris.

But they aren’t the only famous names to be associated with Royal Cromer. Alfred Lord Tennyson, Herbert Henry Asquith and Oscar Wilde have all graced its fairways.

Why it’s special

Royal Cromer’s greatest claim to fame is without a doubt its organisation of the first international golf match ever played – that of the ladies of Great Britain against America as a preliminary to the British Ladies’ Championship in 1905.

Where does it rank?

272nd in GB&I
