At A Glance

Oscar Wilde wrote: "I find Cromer excellent for writing but the golf even better." Old Tom visited in 1891 and set out 9 holes. He then returned in 1895 for the inward 9. Harry Colt changed the opening hole in 1911. JH Taylor finalised the position of the clubhouse and made some tweaks in 1912. James Braid adjusted greens, tees and bunkers in 1924. After losing some holes to coastal erosion, Frank Pennink added the new 2nd and 3rd in 1979.

The Royal Cromer Golf Club is the second oldest golf club in Norfolk. However, it was the first to host an international women's match between Amerian and Britain in 1905. This match became the forerunner to the Curtis Cup. In 1988, two Curtis Cup teams returned to play a match in period dress.
