Bungay & Waveney Valley Golf Course is situated on Bungay Common, just outside the town. The course sits in a horseshoe- shaped loop formed by the River Waveney, and is an inland heathland course, with plenty of gorse and a mixture of pine and birch trees.

Set in only 84 acres of well-drained land, it is a very comfortable course to walk and rarely suffers from excessive water. The greens are quite small and well-protected, and the challenge is therefore in accuracy rather than length. In early spring the course is at its best, with the abundance of gorse in flower and some lovely views over the surrounding marshes. There is a variety of wildlife to distract you from your game, and skylarks can often be heard singing overhead.

The club was founded in 1889, and keeps well-documented accounts of the changes and local history which are associated with the course. It prides itself on the friendly atmosphere, and makes visitors feel very welcome. Societies are asked to book well in advance, and the casual visitor advised to telephone prior to their visit. The clubhouse was rebuilt several years ago, and caters for members and visiting golfers, while the Professional, Andrew Collison, runs a well-stocked shop and is available to give lessons.
