Great Yarmouth & Caister Golf Club

Anticipated Links Experience:
Many of the oldest clubs were founded in connection with other nearby activities, for example horse-racing, where land appropriate for a golf course could be utilised in terms of its character and ongoing maintenance. A racecourse links is rugged by definition and must be played with an open mind. These courses have historical significance, just like a reference section in a library, and therefore alllowances should be made in terms of lay-out and condition if your paths cross.
