Thorpeness, Suffolk IP16 4NH
18 holes. Heathland course. Gently undulating terrain - easy to walk.
25 miles NE of Ipswich
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.
Visitors welcome on weekdays and weekends.
Must book in advance. Handicap required.
Credit cards accepted. Contact club for full details, discounts, packages, etc. [Last updated: 2019].

The House in the Clouds (and windmill) behind the 18th are rather special !
