Thorpeness is a unique golfing destination on the Suffolk Heritage coast, boasting one of the most challenging and enjoyable golf courses in the area. The golf club now incorporates an AA 3* hotel, country club, golf academy and the unique opportunity for golfers to take advantage of our exclusive Suffolk Tour. The ideal way for golfers to enjoy the big skies and unspoilt coast is to take a golf break at the Thorpeness Hotel. The course, designed by James Braid in 1922 is a coastal heathland course offering a tough challenge to all levels of player. The course consists of 18 holes - 6432 yards, par 69 for men (SS70) and par 74 (SS72) for ladies.
