Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club has a lot to offer keen golfers with a choice of golf breaks to suit discerning players all year round.
Golf breaks in the UK have always been popular, an opportunity to get away with like minded friends who enjoy the camarderie of a few rounds of golf, without the hassle of flights to European destinations.
The hotel creates the perfect base to reflect on a great day of golf with food and drink
served all day long. The clubhouse displays memorabilia from years gone by to create an authentic atmosphere.
There's no doubt that the only way to fully appreciate Thorpeness as a golfing venue is to play the course
and stay for a day or two
Pints and Pars: The Suffolk Ale and Golf Trail
Golf has always enjoyed a love affair with a post-round drink, so much so that the clubhouse bar is affectionately called the “19th Hole” the world over.
Golf has romantic connections to a number of stiff drinks, like Kummel (a strong aniseed tasting liquor of Danish origin), Port (rich fortified red wine), and Gin and Tonic (refreshing and cleansing spirit) being among the most popular of golfing tipple.
Here in Suffolk we are blessed with one of the finest real ale scenes in Britain and a good hoppy ale is as much a part of the 19th hole experience at Thorpeness Golf Club as any stiffener from the top shelf.
Suffolk ale is so revered that we have launched our own Ale and Golf Trail featuring a tour around one of Suffolk’s finest breweries, and golf at Thorpeness
and Aldeburgh golf clubs.
Thorpeness and Aldeburgh are two of the finest seaside golf courses in Eastern England and playing links and heathland golf in freshening sea breezes is the perfect way to work up a thirst.
Suffolk Beer – Real Ale Heaven
According to the Suffolk branch of CAMRA (Campaign for Real Ale) there are around 800 public bars in Suffolk, of which 700 serve real ale.
Add to this 24 breweries, including the most famous - 140-year-old Adnams in Southwold - 400 village pubs and a claim to be home to Britain’s smallest pub, The Nutshell in Bury St Edmunds, and you are in real ale heaven.
Golfers booking on the Suffolk Ale and Golf Trail enjoy either an exclusive tour of the Green Jack Brewery in Lowestoft
or a trip to the Adnams
Copper House Brewery in Southwold.
- Southwold Bitter: coppery, dry and hoppy, a big-selling ale
- Broadside: Pale Ale malt, dark ruby red beer that smells like fruitcake
- Explorer: light, refreshing and citrusy, with a hint of grapefruit
Green Jack Ales
- Excelsior Golden Brown
- Orange Wheat beer
- Trawlerboys Best Bitter
- Lurcher Stout
- Ripper - voted Supreme Champion Winter Beer in the UK in 2007
Golfers on the tour will learn about malts, grains and hops and the brewing process, and receive a complimentary pint and hand raised pork pie at Green Jack’s Stanford Arms pub afterwards.
