Thorpeness Golf Blog

A blog for people who love golf.

Here you can read about life on the fairways at our James Braid designed classic heathland course and golf hotel.

We celebrate great golf played all year round - thanks to the mild micro climate here on the Suffolk Coast and less rainfall than almost anywhere else in Britain.

Our blog is packed with ideas for how to spend your time on and off the course, helpful tips from our expert golf professionals and news and reviews from the world of golf.
