What the club says: The legendary James Braid laid out the 18 hole, 6,281 yard heathland course in 1922, yet the quality of his design is as evident today as then, and continues to offer endless variety and extraordinary challenges to golfers at all levels. The Sunday Telegraph Golfing Guide has been moved to describe the classic terrain as "reminiscent of the inland glories of Sunningdale and Woodhall Spa" - and that is high praise indeed!

Golf Course Reviews for Thorpeness Golf Club
If you play golf in Essex then this is a must for you in the winter months. January 21st 2018 was the first time I had played here and the weather freezing cold and sleet, the following day was brilliant sunshine and warm for the time of year. Both days I came in without any mud on my shoes, my trousers were not covered in mud and I could use my electric trolley without damaging the course. All in all well worth a visit.

Course in fantastic condition - soaked up the recent heavy rain very well. Great winter course
Some tee shots feel tight and demanding and the gorse and Heather will really grow up and out in the summer.
Layout is spot on with some very picturesque tee shots and approach shots.
Course anyone can enjoy however higher handicapper that may be wayward off the tee may need to take a few extra balls but would still enjoy.
Staff super friendly and bar menu afterward was refreshingly priced and food was spot on!

Course was in fantastic condition, with some awesome undulations which provided a good interesting round. Will be playing again, hopefully in less windy conditions!
