Golf Courses at Stoke by Nayland Hotel, Golf & Spa

Gainsborough Course

The par-71 Gainsborough Course measures over 7000 yards from the championship markers, and the tremendous rolling countryside is home to a truly spectacular layout, which is designed around the four expansive lakes that can wreak havoc with your scorecard. It is essential to drive the ball well around the Gainsborough, as being out of position off the tee will make scoring exceptionally difficult. The highlight is the awe-inspiring 10th, where golfers must play their drive and approach shot over the same lake.

Constable Course

The Constable Course measuring at 6544 yards and a par of 72 is similarly stunning, but is arguably tighter off the tee, owing to the mature woodland that skirts many fairways. There are several water hazards to be negotiated, and like the Gainsborough, retaining your concentration to the last is important; the closing hole is an exacting par-4, requiring a good drive over a large lake before you attack the plateau green.

Stoke by Nayland's superb golf complex also offers first-class tuition, while the overall package makes it an educated choice for your society or corporate golf outing and is now the site for one of Lee Westwood golf schools'.

Take your inspiration from the renowned Constable and Gainsborough, after whom the courses are named, and use all your artistic creativity to negotiate the great variety of holes at Stoke by Nayland.

The staff were extremely helpful Rooms lovely except water isn't supplied in rooms No air conditioner but a fan instead on a timer which is noisy. Superb welcome with a welcome pack and a full explanation on the course and where everything was situated.

Ticked all the boxes for a couple of nights One of the group ordered 2 large brand's asked 'good ' brandy but was only told the price once they were poured, told £50 if it was to be that price should have been warned or given a price list. It wasn't the Ritz!

The rooms were ok but the bars had a lack of staff. The breakfast was also disappointing. A lot of us ordered poached eggs with most of them being hard.
