Welcome to Thorpe Hall Golf Club

The origins of Thorpe Hall can be traced back to 1086. That is when King William I, the Norman Conqueror, ordered a survey throughout England to assess the extent of his possessions and the value for taxation purposes. The results of this early census were published in the Domesday Book and it is there that reference is made to “Thorpe-hall”.

The name Thorpe is of Scandinavian origin and probably signified a hamlet during the Danish supremacy. Indeed, before the Norman invasion, Thorpe-hall belonged to Ingvar, a Dane.

In 1791 Ynyr Burges bought the land that included Great and Little Thorpe Hall Farms, later to become one. In 1792 he died without children but he had bequeathed his estates to his brother’s son. Three generations later Colonel Ynyr Henry Burges would be responsible for the birth of Thorpe Hall Golf Club.

In 1906, with the help of Kenneth Costley-White and Bert Batley, a golf professional, Colonel Burges started to change the farmland into Thorpe Hall Golf Club and it was informally opened a year later.

A description of our golf course extracted from a report prepared for the Board of Directors in 1907 stated “the turf of the greens is pretty well as good as it can possibly be – close and short and their naturally undulating character affords ideal putting” the course today is maintained to the same high standards.

The first formal competition at Thorpe Hall took place on March 23rd 1907, for the Founders Cup and on the same date in 2007, for only the second time. The same Cup is now competed for each year on a date as near as possible to mark the start of our Centenary celebrations.

Thorpe Hall Golf Club is a traditional members club with a Board of Directors, including the Ladies and Men’s Captains, being responsible for the executive decisions relating to the day to day operation of the club. The respective Ladies and Men’s committees see to all of the competitions and handicaps with a separate Greens committee dealing with matters relating to the golf course.

A feature of our golf club is that we do not operate a tee booking system for social golf, however competitions and Society bookings are managed by the allocation of tee times.

First time playing this amazing golf course. It was in superb condition and I thoroughly enjoyed playing there. The tee and green complexes are immaculate, the fairways are lush and the course is fantastic. The Clubhouse is just the same as the course. Polite staff, friendly members and lovely food.
