Thorpeness is regarded as one of the finest coastal heathland golf courses in Britain, and one of the best golf courses in Suffolk. Golfers can expect a winding course, through heather, gorse, pine and silver birch trees, hitting from firm quick drying soil with rare birdsong in the ears and the tang of sea salt in the air.

James Braid James Braid

Scotsman James Braid was one of the greatest golf course designers in history. He respected nature and let the lie of the land dictate the path for his fairways, tees and greens. In 1922 Braid laid out a golf course on low lying heathland, just a stone's throw from the Suffolk coast in an area of outstanding natural beauty. His creation was Thorpeness Golf Club. To this day, James Braid’s Thorpeness is regarded as one of the finest coastal heathland golf courses in Britain.
