Opened in May 1982 with 12 holes, Orton Meadows was eventually extended to a full 18-hole course in April 1987. Designed by Dennis and Roger Fitton, the then current golf professionals at both courses, it measures 5,613 yards with a par 67. It may be shorter than its big brother at Thorpe Wood but don’t be fooled; its well-placed bunkers and punishing water hazards still make it a game for golfers of all skills and abilities. The wonderfully picturesque surroundings and beautiful natural scenery add to the personality of this course. A 12-hole pitch and putt course is an additional feature, attracting new players who want to learn about the game and established golf enthusiasts who want to sharpen their short game.
