Since opening for play in 1907, Thorpe Hall Golf Club has proved to be a fair but stimulating test for golfers of all abilities. Although modest in length by the standards of modern course design, recent additional fairway bunkers give longer hitters pause for thought while the ever present mature trees that line the majority of the fairways provide the main defence of the course against all players. A wayward tee shot into the trees can often be costly on the scorecard. The current remodelling of some greenside bunkers together with the planned programme of continued course development will ensure that Thorpe Hall remains a challenging and enjoyable venue. The Club is proud of its traditions and the quality it brings to members and visitors alike.
The most difficult hole is the par 5, 8th. A true three shot par 5. Out of bounds runs the entire length of the left-hand side of this hole. With this in mind, plot a route along the right-hand side and hope for a pitch and a putt to secure a rare birdie!
Another difficult hole at Thorpe Hall Golf Club is the 14th. – A long par 5 that tends to play its length into the prevailing wind. Reachable from the tee, there is a water hazard on the left although the hole opens up as you get to the end of the funnel of trees down the right. This hole provides an outside chance to get a shot back against the card.
