If you’re a keen golfer or fancy taking up a new hobby, there are some excellent golf courses in Suffolk so why not make a weekend of it?
Situated on the sunny Suffolk Heritage Coast within walking distance to the sea, Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club offers modern accommodation with picturesque views of the golf course.
The course is set on classic British heathland designed by five-time Open Champion and legendary golf course architect James Braid. This Par 70, 18 hole, challenging 6,421 yard course will test golfers of all abilities.
After the 18th hole, celebrate your victory (or commiserate losing your ball in the rough!) with a hearty breakfast, afternoon tea or homemade dinner which are available to hotel guests, golfers and visitors alike.
Combine a golfing break with relaxing spa facilities at Ufford Park Woodbridge, Hotel, Golf and Spa - Spreading out from Ufford Park's 90 bedroom hotel are 120 acres of historic parkland, including their 18-hole championship golf course. The golf course has been used for events including the PGA Europro Tour, and the Best Western Senior Masters. Being a par 71, the selection of short technical and longer holes make it a testing but enjoyable course!
Then relax and enjoy some pampering in the bubbling hydro pool which will massage you with tension-easing, stress-relieving water jets, or you can try the ice fountain and tropical showers for revitalising, tingling stimulation. The mineral grotto is a relaxing, steamy room full of exotic fragrances, while essences in the aroma steam room will gently cleanse and energise the body…
The two courses at Woodbridge Golf Club are set in the beautiful surroundings of the Suffolk Coast & Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. A haven for golfers of all ages and abilities; the 18-hole Heath course provides a serious golfer's challenge all year round, whilst the full length nine-hole Forest course is suitable for all standards.
High Lodge is perfect for those action packed weekends, offering various activities including clay pigeon shooting, archery, fishing and a 9 hole golf course, complete with luxury lodges and hot tubs! Perfect autumn getaway!
