A gem

This is a lovely course that I'd happily go back to over and over. Never boring, a great variety of holes. Great club house and bar. Great service and food.

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!

unfortunately came at the time the greens had been punched, they were unplayable. Which was a shame as we drove 2 hours to come and play. Despite that I'd recommend playing, its brutal with any slight misses but a great track.

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.

The layout is nice and the area is stunning but the course is not in great condition. Fairways very patchy, Bunkers very inconsistent. Greens run very quick and true but you cant stop a ball on the approach as they bone dry underneath. A very tough course but needs abit of tlc. Plus no range just a open field which is a shame.

Good Looking course freindly Staff nice old traditional club house.
The course was under going some major changes but then it is good to see money being invested and it was the right time of year to do this sort of work.
Challenging and interesting course

superb golf course, one of the best i've had the pleasure of playing, greens play as fast as i've ever played, and the rough is both testing, but playable!! Pin positions are always very testing, making for a great round of golf. Would highly reccommend to anyone wanting to go away for a wkd of golf. Great prices, and great facilities!!
