St Ives Golf Club

18 Hole Par72 Course, Driving Range, Putting Green, Chipping Green, Bunkers Practice, Pro Shop
Situated in rural East Anglia, St Ives (Hunts) Golf Club boasts a brand new inland links style course, designed by renowned golf course architect Cameron Sinclair. Built on a 230-acre site at Giffords Farm, Needingworth, the 18 hole course is a first class facility which provides a stern test for golfers of all ages and abilities.

The course features USGA specification greens, one of the first courses in the country to do so, using 'velvet bent' grass on the greens to ensure they mature fast and true. The fairways are fully drained and irrigated and have been sand-capped with 40mm of sand to give a links-like 'feel'.

Buggies are allowed on the course and the buggy paths from tee to fairway are specially constructed grass paths with their own irrigation system.

The choice of four tees to each hole allows all golfers to enjoy a unique test. The 18 hole course is ranked as a par 72, with yardages ranging from 5626 to 6758. Plans are in hand to extend the course to 7150 yards for Professional events.

Our practice facilities include 3 separate areas to work on either your long game, short game, or putting.

For those wishing to work on their long game our 370-yard long driving range is the ideal venue to try the game for the first time, warm up before your round, or to hone your swing. Our range comprises 4 covered bays,
6 outside bays and also has a fully equipped Professional Teaching Bay.

The short game is not overlooked either, with further practice facilities situated between the clubhouse and the first tee. These consist of: a putting green, constructed to mirror the fine surface found on the course right up to USGA specification; a chipping green with two revetted-faced bunkers, designed to offer practice of a variety of bunker shots, including longer, fairway bunker shots; and a short game area with target greens providing a perfect area for that vital 100 yards practice making the difference to your scores when it comes to
competition play.
