Why the Ladies love Thorpeness

March is the month when daffodils dare to flower and Spring begins to wriggle free of the cold grip of Winter.

It’s also the perfect time to be a lady golfer.

The ladies are out in force as the club is again running its hugely popular Ladies Love Golf Breaks .

Ladies Golf Breaks from £120

Ladies visting Thorpeness in Suffolk can enjoy a 1-night, 2-day break packed with golf competitions, 3-course dinner – a glass of Prosecco in the bar beforehand - breakfast and afternoon tea on the day of departure.

These fantastic ladies golf breaks run every Sunday – Thursday until 30th November 2016.


Why Thorpeness is loved by ladies golfing groups

...and couples and why our mixed events always attract a great field.

• Thorpeness golf course is a thinker’s course, where course management, strategy and execution count for more than raw power and brute strength

• Thorpeness enjoys a mild micro-climate, one of the lowest rates of rainfall in the UK and an extra two hours of sunshine per week compared to the rest of Britain

• The golf course is a haven for wildlife, flora and fauna – and a tranquil relaxing place to play

• Thorpeness lies in an AONB (Area of outstanding natural beauty) close to the Suffolk Heritage Coast

• At Thorpeness Hotel you can get from your bedroom to the first tee in under a minute

• Off course, there are quaint cafes, beautiful boutiques and independent retailers in nearby Aldeburgh

Thorpeness is a big favourite of Former Solheim Cup Captain Mickey Walker – who runs an annual golf school here – she recently recommended Thorpeness as the ‘perfect winter golf destination’ in Lady Golfer Magazine.

March is also the unofficial start to the season for the Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club lady members as the club’s competition calendar gets into full swing.

The first competition of the month is a Ladies Stableford on March 6. It’s a qualifying event for handicaps, the winner takes home a Marks and Spencer voucher and the winners of each handicap division pick up a sleeve of golf balls.
