Thorpeness Golf Club

Regarded as one of the finest golf courses in Suffolk

Thorpeness Golf Club is a coastal heathland course designed by famous Scottish architect James Braid and opened in 1922. It winds its way through silver birch, pine trees, gorse and purple heather. The course is 6,421 yards long and plays to a par of 70. It is bordered by Suffolk’s famous “House in the Clouds” – a water tower converted into a residence that appears to float in the skyline – and is close to the Meare, a manmade boating lake with romantic connections to author J.M Barrie and his fictional child hero Peter Pan.

Offering traditional hospitality throughout the year and operating to the highest of standards, Thorpeness Hotel has 36 spacious and comfortable bedrooms many of which have views of the Meare or the golf course.

The hotel remains a popular choice, not only for those enjoying a well-earned rest from a morning on the course, but also for lunchtime diners enjoying a relaxed light meal in the Patio Bar or terrace on sunnier days. For evening meals the comfortable restaurant enjoys views over the 3rd tee and offers a wide choice of traditional and contemporary dishes.

Thorpeness is no ordinary Suffolk village. Nearly a century ago, the architect, barrister and playwright, Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie set about creating a safe and healthy, fun packed holiday environment for his family and friends. This was a place where children could enjoy the magic and innocence of a traditional seaside holiday.
