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
Weekend golf break and I can't fault the place. The welcome is very warm, the service is excellent and the course is more than a little bit special. Can see why it's rated 83 / 100 in England.
The course starts very gently with a short par four and a gentle par three, then it gets very interesting, winding it's way through the natural contours of the country side. There are some very long par fours to negotiate but get the right lines and a run and these can be mastered. Only two par fives but both offer good birdie chances.

Nice trip with hotel and dinner - poor weather second day but course dried out okay.

We played Thorpeness as part of a Golfbreaks deal and I?d recommend it. The course isn?t too long, has some tricky greens and there are a lot of bunkers to negotiate. The only negative I had was the course had a few too many rabbits but that?s not enough to stop me returning. Considering the weather we?d had, it was dry underfoot. I can see why it?s in the top 100 in England and would like to play it in the summer when the greens will be faster and the slopes will need to be correctly read. The hotel was good, food was excellent and service prompt. It?s true the hotel could do with refurbishment but I?m not there for more than sleep
