The Lowestoft Golf Club was founded in 1887 by a group of enthusiasts on the Denes in Lowestoft.

Due to the growth of urban development and major road improvement schemes, the club was forced to look for an alternative location.

In 1972 the club purchased the land at Rookery Estate and the course was opened in the late summer of 1975.

To view plans on the proposed new development of three dwellings search DC/23/1053/P3Q  on East Suffolk Councils' planning portal.

The golf club is situated at Beccles Road, Carlton Colville.
