What’s pink, round, 1.68 inches in diameter and helps save lives?

The answer: a golf ball!

Pink Up in the fight against Britain’s most common cancer
Did you know?
Breast Cancer is the common form of cancer in the UK today. Every year it claims the lives of 12,000 women and a further 50,000 women are diagnosed with the condition.
What can you do to help?
Start by signing up for the Thorpeness Pink Putter – an individual Stableford Competition - played for over our 18-hole James Braid designed heathland golf course, with only a few conditions:
• You have to play with a pink golf ball
• You must wear Pink clothes, or at least a significant amount of pink clothing
• You pay £5, on top of your green fee or golf break package, to enter the Pink Putter and in return you receive your prized pink ball

There are great prizes to be won, donated by Adnam’s of Southwold, for golfers with the highest stableford scores as well as extras like longest drive and nearest the pin on par threes.
Two of our holes will be completely ‘pinked up,’ and we’ll be serving pink drinks and snacks at our halfway hut.
