The course was in really good condition considering the vast amount of rain fall recently, obviously good drainage.The course is challenging and very enjoyable.
The food and service is top class and the staff are very welcoming.

Fantastic winter course

we turned up to Thorpness in awful weather conditions and whilst there was some standing water on the greens early in the round when the rain stopped the course dried superbly. the overnight winter package is great value as well.

Great course.

You can play this course all year round and no Muddy shoes Sandy soil the water drains through. If you don't want mud on your trousers or golf trolley then this is a must play course.

As Arnie says - We'll be back!

This was our 5th annual Autumn tour, but a new course for us - and wow - we were not disappointed. What a cracking set up at Thorpeness. The Hotel was top class - as was the food and we thoroughly enjoyed our 3 days stay. As for the course, we loved it. Some easy holes, but others were challenging to say the least. Considering the rain that had fallen overnight before our first round, we were surprised the course was open with all the flooding on the surrounding roads. We should not have worried. The course drains exceptionally well and we played 3 days in completely different conditions, all of which helped make each hole different. Highly recommended and we will be back!

Thorpness

Great course that is not easy, very helpful friendly staff great value if you stay overnight in the hotel. The area of Thorpness is worth a visit as well.

Drove for two hours to play a dry course and was not disappointed. One new green was wet everywhere else was excellent. Interesting mix of holes and greens were fast and true.

Top 100 tour

We played here in early July 2020 as part of our “top 100 tour” May/August. We were truly impressed with the presentation of the course and the fantastic layout. This track is a true test of golf so best bring your A game I’d say! In our opinion we would say current rating is quite a bit lower than we would rate it during our visit. On current condition it’s got to be pushing for a top 50 spot. Will be back for sure.

Always Amazing

Once again blown away by the condition of Thorpeness. Plays tougher in the winter due to cold and wind but so enjoyable and surely one of the most underrated in suffolk.

If you get a chance, go and play. ?25 after 12pm deal in the winter is a serious bargain.
