A hotel group has launched a new tourist package combining real ale breweries and classic seaside golf courses.

TA Hotel Collection’s “Suffolk Ale and Golf Trail” will see visitors stay at the company’s Thorpeness Hotel and Golf Club, play golf at club’s own course and at nearby Aldeburgh Golf Club and visit Adnams’ brewery and distillery at Southwold or the Green Jack Brewery in Lowestoft.

Grahame Tinnion, managing director of TA Hotel Collection, said: “Golfers are discerning people and the UK is one of the most popular golf destinations in Europe and the World.

“It’s important to stand out in a busy crowd and we believe that Suffolk is somewhere that should be on the must-play list for golfers in the UK and Europe.”

The Thorpeness course, which opened in 1922, was designed by the famous Scottish architect James Braid while Aldeburgh Golf Club, which dates back to 1884, is Britain’s second-oldest heathland golf course.

Chris Oldrey, PGA Professional and golf operations manager at Thorpeness, said: “Suffolk’s seaside courses are a well-kept secret in golfing circles because they are slightly off the beaten track.

“They don’t carry the hefty price tag of Open Championship courses, or big name trophy links, but share the same beautiful settings, firm sandy turf, gorse and sea breezes that epitomise golf played in its most natural form.”
