Rating 0.0

Thorn Apple Country Club is perfect for long hitters with the back tees stretching to over 7,000 yards, but there is enough variety in the layout to appeal to a variety of tastes and skill levels. The Jack Kidwell design features generous greens that are easy to hit balanced by challenging fairways. The club claims that if you can hit these fairways, you can hit any fairway. Water is a prominent feature of the golf course. A whopping 11 water hazards lurk throughout and come into play on most of the holes. There are also a few strategically placed bunkers to watch out for. There are a number of tricky holes, including a demanding 245-yard par 3. During a round, golfers might catch a glimpse of the redtail hawks, ducks, and geese that Thorn Apple Country Club shares the landscape with.

Long but Wide Open

I like this course but there isn't a whole lot to it. You can make a lot of mistakes and get away with them since it is fairly open.
