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.

Latest golf course reviews
Walton Heath Golf Club (Old course): Top golfers and golf writers have long acknowledged Walton Heath as one of the finest heathland courses in the British Isles. In fact there are two courses here, the Old and New. Read more...
The Welcombe Hotel Spa & Golf Club: provides an excellent Stay & Play opportunity, just a mile out of town from William Shakespear's birthplace in the centre of Stratford. The golf course, laid out in the grounds of a sumptuous stately mansion (now hotel), offers many undulating and stylishly crafted golf holes. Read more...
Royal Ostend Golf Club: represents Belgium’s only real "beside-the-seaside" links golf course (others like Royal Zoute are located a little way inland). Here at Ostend many holes make excellent use of an impressive area of sand dunes. From the long par-4 5th through to the par-5 14th, you play across fabulously open and gently undulating golfing terrain, with few trees, fine sea views and probably a bit of North Sea wind thrown in for good measure.

Koksijde Golf ter Hille Golf Club: on what was previously open farmland, an enjoyable and challenging links-style layout has been crafted. Perhaps the inspiration for Koksijde's new course came from a renowned Harry Colt layout that existed in the 1920s just a couple of kilometres to the west. Read more...
