Thorpeness Hotel & Golf Club


3-star: a good golf course with many fine features.
   Thorpeness Hotel & Golf Club Est. 1922

Where2Golf says: 

Thorpeness Hotel & Golf Club: Like neighbouring Aldeburgh, this is a heathland course with an abundance of gorse and heather, ensuring plenty of golfing challenges and potentially making wayward shots tough to find. The back-nine gets the edge over the front, with perhaps the more interesting and testing golf holes. Don't think that the par of 69 translates into an easy-going layout. You will need to drive the ball accurately to find the not overly wide fairways, and birdie opportunities will need to be taken when they can, with only one par-5 in the layout. A classic heathland course and generally a busy one, so don’t always expect a quick round.

Tournaments:
The American Express formerly known as the Desert Classic, and for many years played as the Bob Hope Desert Classic, will once again be decided on the Pete Dye designed Stadium course at PGA West (Jan 16-19).
The Players Championship:  for the 39th time, TPC Sawgrass, another iconic Pete Dye design, will host The Players Championship for one of the richest first prizes in world golf (March 12-15).
 
Who's Who: 
Pete Dye:  one of the greatest golf course architects of this or any generation passes away aged 94. His contribution to golf course design, and the legacy he leaves is immense.

In 1967 Dye asked Nicklaus to input to his design for The Golf Club in Columbus, Ohio. Two years later they worked together on the revered Harbour Town Golf Links in South Carolina.
