Golf has been played on Rushmere Heath since the late 1800s when it was the home of the Ipswich Golf Club. In 1927 when the majority of the members elected to move to nearby privately owned land, a public appeal and donations from founder members enabled Rushmere Golf Club to be formed.

The heath is a fine natural golf course situated just on the outskirts of Ipswich. Most holes are bounded by gorse and there are many fine old oak trees providing not only natural habitat for birds and other wildlife but demanding care and accuracy from many of the tees. The course is over 6200 yards and enjoys the space and hole by hole separation afforded by the expanse of the heath. Over 400 acres of Rushmere Heath is registered common land, administered by a committee and, in addition to the 15 holes rented from the commoners, the club privately owns 17 acres which constitute the 3rd, 4th and 5th holes.

The clubhouse, formerly an old junior school building, was bought by the club in 1928 and has been extended over the years into the spacious and welcoming venue enjoyed by members and visitors today. Rushmere has earned the reputation of being a fiercely competitive members club with a very strong playing presence in its Mens, Ladies, Junior and Veteran sections. The nature of the course demands accuracy and good course management skills and this probably explains the high number of below 5 handicap members ever present at Rushmere.

There is no finer golfing country anywhere and Rushmere provides a splendid test for tiger and rabbit alike. Above all the club is welcoming, plays host to many top competitions and charity events and offers a great golfing experience to visitors, societies or any player looking for a true golfing challenge.

  Nice course. Interesting mix of parkland/woodland front nine followed by heathland / almost links like back nine. Clubhouse is pretty good (one of the best I've seen in the area) but mens changing room is functional at best. Only issue is dog walkers due to common land, but didn't really affect my round that badly (only had to wait for a few minutes in total) - green fee does include insurance!
