Review for Thorpeness

Reviewer Score:


Played on this popular Suffolk seaside course on a busy September day, and had a very enjoyable round, there's enough variety to keep you interested. I was pleased to birdie the 6th, a short par 4, but also lost a few balls in the gorse during the round. There was some torrential rain whilst we played, but the course was quick to drain and so this didn't spoil our enjoyment too much. The whole place was in excelent condition and there were green keepers bustling about all day keeping it in good nick. Although you're near the sea, the course is slightly inland so you don't get any sea views and If it wasn't for the cool breeze you could almost be anywhere in the Surrey sandbelt and this charming course could hold it's own in such erstwhile company, play it if you're anywhere nearby. You might find it would make a good warm up for a game at nearby Aldeburgh. Next time I will stay the night as they often have good deals available and the staff were very hospitable and it's quite a long drive up from the smoky city when there are two good courses virtually next to each other. Finally, I must say you'd be remiss not to go into Aldeburgh village and have a fish supper before going home.
