A Guide to one of Suffolk’s Best Golf Parks

Last Updated on March 9, 2023

At Woodfarm Barns, we’re blessed with some truly great neighbours. Indeed, we’ve got some fantastic bars, restaurants and parks all within a short drive from our Barns for rent in Suffolk. In addition to such standout local attractions, our visitors are also just around the corner from Stonham Barns Golf Park.

Committed to making golf fun and accessible to all, Stonham Barns Golf Park features everything from a traditional 9 hole course to adventure golf, indoor golf and footgolf. There’s also a dedicated big hole golf course which takes the basic principles of golf but adds – you guessed it – bigger holes! This subtle variation ultimately increases participation and leads to fast rather than frustrating rounds.

Promising just as much fun as the adventure golf and big hole course, the eighteen hole footgolf course can be completed inside of ninety minutes (we’re sure this must be by design!) and can be enjoyed along with a food and drinks package. Very much the home of Suffolk footgolf, Stonham Barns was responsible for bringing the sport to the county back in 2013 and has gone on to make impressive improvements to the course over the past nine years.

When the weather makes a round of the Smugglers Bay adventure course or footgolf impossible, the Suffolk Golf Studio serves as an indoor golf centre at the park that offers an impressive high tech alternative. Allowing players to enjoy a casual practice session or participate in virtual recreations of memorable golfing moments, the studio is equipped with the most advanced 3D simulation technology for a truly immersive experience.

For anyone keen to get to grips with golf or improve their swing, there’s also a variety of coaching sessions provided by PGA professionals. Alternatively, for anyone who would prefer to simply unwind after trying their hand at some of the activities, there’s the Stonham Barns Bistro right on the doorstep of the park.

Altogether, the range of activities on offer at the park make it perfect for everyone, whether they’re a golfing extraordinaire, golfing intermediate, or a total golfing newcomer.
