Hidden Gem

Thorntree is a hidden gem located in DeSoto. It's an old school country club that is available to the public. I've played there several times, and have always enjoyed it. It starts off with an easy down hill par 4, and then a short par 3 that is more difficult than it appears thanks to a multi-tier green. From there, the course gets more difficult, and you'll want to come back again and again to try and tame it. Greens are relatively new hybrid bermuda, fast and true. Bunkers are in pretty good shape, better than most course s in DFW. Very interesting layout overall.

Tough little course

Layout was challenging and greens were good but got a lot of roll on the fairways because the grass is dormant and really short. It’s fine on the flatter fairways but some of them are really sloped. Will play again when the grass is growing.

Staff gets it! They understand golf is a hospitality business. Most don't.

Had a great time. Course conditions only got 3 stars simply because it is winter golf the day after a rain storm. We will be back.

Great surprise!

I played today without any knowledge of Thorntree. Enjoyed the course immensely. Plenty of length, many unique holes, true greens, loads of bunkering both fairway and guarding the greens. The course has earned its slope ratings. Great challenge!

Thorntree

Place was very busy. T times were running late. Play was slow. Don’t know if it’s always that way.

Lack of important information

Tee time was 11:08. Checked in at 10:45 to be told there was a 20 minute delay due to a tournament. Did not tee off until 12:20pm and waited 15 -20 minutes every hole on front, 10-15 on back.. Did not finish until 4:45. 6 hours is ridiculous! There should have been something to alert before booking that there was a tournament. Would not have booked if I knew that.
