CORPORATE GOLF

IN THE EAST

Dunstan Hall An invitation to East Anglia is very hard to resist, a region of wonderful golf courses, of infinite variety and challenge, the enchanting Norfolk Broads and some of the finest wildlife sites anywhere in the country. It is like writing my personal wish list and finding it all coming true. I first came to the Broads in 1957, over half a century ago, and since that first experience it has had a special attraction for me that never tires. The coast is home to some of the finest links in the land, and it can boast several Royal clubs, Royal Cromer, Royal Norwich and not forgetting that wonderful nine hole classic Royal Worlington and Newmarket, oft called The Sacred Nine. Just cause for pride.

After the delights of the north Norfolk coast at Cromer and Sheringham, it was time to sample the parkland course at Dunstan Hall, situated just four miles from the city centre. It is a most stylish setting, an impressive Elizabethan style mansion, which has recently been renovated at a cost of over two million pounds. The course spreads out over 159 acres of stunning Norfolk wooded parkland. The literature states quite simply that it is the perfect venue for your corporate golf day. Unbeatable style and comfort and relaxation, and a fine golf course to be enjoyed, after a warm up on the driving range. The course is 6275 yards from the medal tees, with a par of 71, at first glance not long by any means, but as has been written so often, that does not mean easy pickings. The undulating fairways, strategic bunkers and numerous lakes ensure that you will need your A game to score well, a fact we found out to our cost on a windy autumn afternoon.

12 TEE TIMES | January 2018

Fortunately the putter worked well, to salvage some pride. It is an old adage, but nevertheless still true, play well and you will be rewarded, stray and pay the penalty. The first is a ninety degree dog left, defended by water on the right and also on the approach to the green, an early examination of a rusty swing after a warm up cut short. Water again rears its head on the third, with a lake again protecting the green, and a good drive is required to make the second easier. The fourth is the first of four very good short holes, though hardly short at 206 yards. The 6th and the 16th holes were my personal favourites, both involving lakes in front of the green and a true test of ball striking.

There are several short par fours, ranging from 270 yards to 339 yards, good driving should provide chances for the odd birdie, but they were in short supply during our round, a cool breeze and recent rain restricted the run on the ball, but did not detract from a most enjoyable game on a course that was a credit to the greens staff. We were very impressed by the young assistant professional who greeted us on our arrival, friendly and efficient, and as he told only a few weeks in the job. He should develop into an able member of the team run by Director of Golf Tom Turner. At the end of the round it was time to relax in the Bunkers Bar, the very comfortable setting to offer relief after the endeavours of the golf course. Ideal for enjoying locally produced food. In addition to the relaxed atmosphere of the Bunkers Bar, there is a more formal dining experience to be had in Dunstan Hall, at the Brasserie Bar & Grill for those with time to stay longer The hotel has all the requisite luxuries for those staying over, with swimming pool, hot tub, steam room and gym. Perhaps next visit.

Dunstan Hall is a member of QFairway, the golf flexible golf membership of Q Hotels, which now comprises ten first class locations stretching the length of the country. From north to south they are: The Westerwood Resort near Glasgow, Slaley Hall in Northumberland, Aldwark Manor and Oulton Hall in Yorkshire, Forest Pines and Belton Woods both in Lincolnshire, Mottram Hall in Cheshire, Telford Resort in Shropshire, Hellidon Lakes in Northamptonshire and last but certainly not least the most easterly Dunstan Hall in Norfolk. Having now had the pleasure of playing five of the courses, I will be planning to visit the remaining five, certain of a warm welcome and a course in first class condition. The hallmark of a very good brand name. The most memorable visit was the few days spent at Slaley Hall where the two courses are no stranger to top class golf, and have hosted European Tour events and numerous other events. If you are fortunate to reside close to one of the courses in the portfolio, the offers for golf membership are superb value, and are well worth exploring. Similarly the offers for shirt breaks would be difficult to beat. Michael Rees
