£50
Thorpeness Golf Club

Thorpeness was the brainchild of one Glencairn Stuart Ogilvie, a Scottish barrister and architect, who inherited the Suffolk Sizewell estate in 1908 and made it home, building a model holiday village with all of the accoutrements, including a golf course. James Braid was engaged to set out the golf course on what was then barren heathland, but Ogilvie added nearly a million trees across the estate to further enhance the natural environment. Requisitioned as a military hospital, tank training ground and for ack-ack gun emplacements during WWII, the greens were still maintained in the hope that golf would be resumed in peacetime – fortunately it was in 1945!
