Thorpeness Golf Club

This Suffolk gem is heathland in style, and though not long - measuring 6,432 from the tips - is a fantastic test. Visiting golfers will be charmed as the layout winds its way through silver birch and pine, gorse and heather, in a fashion reminiscent of the world-renowned courses at Sunningdale and Woodhall Spa. The sandy soil gives Thorpeness a superb links accent, while the course's quality has been recognised with the award of a number of regional, national and international tournaments.

The charming Suffolk landscape makes for a delightful setting, while on the course itself Braid has created a great variety of holes. Some of the best are the signature 3rd, where a good drive is the key to negotiating the sharp dog-leg right, the short 7th, where a poorly-struck iron will disturb the lilies that cruise the lake, and the terrific closing hole, which demands two great shots to find the green, under the watchful gaze of the famous windmill.

James Braid's famous creativity is extremely evident at Thorpeness, and his tremendous course makes this an educated choice for your next golf holiday.

It is crucial to avoid the bunkers at Thorpeness, which are built in the true links style with steep faces.

Accommodation

Just ten minutes walk from the superb beach on Suffolk's famous coastline, the hotel prides itself on providing traditional hospitality for all those fortunate enough to visit. The thirty guest rooms are extremely comfortable, and all overlook either the Meare or the golf course. Old-fashioned values like personal, attentive service are married perfectly with modern comforts in the hotel, and the warm welcome will ensure that all visitors will be put at ease immediately upon arrival.

During the winter months, the golf course's sandy turf remains perfectly playable, while the open fires will be roaring in the lounge to greet the hardy golfer's return, emphasising perfectly the charm inherent in a Thorpeness golf break.

Hotel guests are welcome to rack up the balls for a few frames of snooker, or use the golf simulator, while the Meare and its surroundings offer a variety of pursuits: try rowing, tennis, boating, fishing, cycling or clay pigeon shooting.

Overlooking the 3rd tee, Thorpeness' restaurant is a sumptuous experience, where the ever-changing menu reflects the fresh and seasonal local produce.

The Patio Bar serves drinks and fine light snacks, including homemade Thorpeness fishcakes.

Golfer reviews

The course condition and hotel food was excellent...

Just want to say thanks for making our booking at Thorpeness. We managed to play the 3 rounds without getting wet and the course condition and hotel food was excellent.

The golf courses were excellent...

Our Thorpeness golf trip went well. The golf courses were excellent examples of their type and the accommodation and food was generally of good standard.

Many thanks for your help. I will no doubt seek the assistance of Your Golf Travel again when I see a likely opportunity to go on another golf break. 

The golf was great...

Can I just say what a good little golf trip my pals and I had last week. Based at Thorpeness, where the rooms and hotel were fantastic, we were really well looked after. Also at Purdis Heath and Aldeburgh GC, we were welcomed by both secretaries who also made an effort to talk about the course and the conditions etc. We felt completely at ease and comfortable and the golf was great.

Every year I organise a 3 day golf break for a party of lady golfers and this year I decided to use Your Golf Travel after hearing good things from a few friends. We like to try a different venue each time we go on a golf trip and this year we went for Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club. After this golf trip I have had many requests to return to Thorpeness next year so it must have been good!

We found the course to be in very good condition and we all loved the layout...no surprises seeing as it was designed by James Braid! The pro shop was well stocked with ladies golf equipment and clothes which can be a rare thing. The rooms were separate from the main building, above the restaurant and boasted wonderful views over the golf course. The food was excellent and we were impressed with the variety as there was a different menu every night. This can often be a mistake for dining establishments as it can have a detrimental effect on the quality of the food but not so here. The staff are extremely pleasant and helpful and are keen to go the extra mile to ensure visitors enjoy their golf break.

Top marks to Thorpeness and well done Your Golf Travel. I shall be in touch for our next ladies golf holiday and our return to Thropeness.

The course was in great condition...

My husband Alan and I thoroughly enjoyed our 3 day golfing break at Thorpeness Hotel & Golf Club...just what we needed!  

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful to make sure we were well looked after. As for the golf, well – the course was in great condition, not a bit of mud on our shoes or trousers after we played 18 holes; it was a pleasure to play on!

We will certainly contact Your Golf Travel when we decide to go on our next golfing holiday.
