Throughout the club’s history the 6,421 yard par 70 James Braid course has attracted major amateur and professional events.
Thorpeness Golf Club has been described by the Sunday Telegraph Golfing Guide as "Reminiscent of the inland glories of Sunningdale and Woodhall Spa".
Regarded as one of the best golf courses in Suffolk, Thorpeness belongs to a unique group of worldwide golf courses identified by a single special landmark. Turnberry and Harbour Town Links have their lighthouses and St Andrews has its Swilken Bridge – Thorpeness has the ‘House in the Clouds,’ a curious and dramatic spectator which watches over our fairways.
In 2012, Thorpeness was voted winner of ‘The Overall Achievement Award’ in the STRI Golf Environment Awards, making it the “greenest golf club in Britain.”
