Other than the check in/bag drop being a bit cumbersome, thoroughly enjoyed the course. Staff very friendly, course in fantastic condition, and pace of play outstanding. Best conditioned course I have played in MB area in a long time. I recommend highly.
What an Excellent Course
First time playing this course at Sunset Beach NC. Came over from Holden and was so pleasantly surprised. This course is fantastic - top notch. The service is great and the course was not only in great (GREAT) shape) but also a fantastic design. If you are a local - the price is amazingly low. But this is well worth a trip. I have been to some fantastic course around the USA and this is up there.
Really enjoyed our round. The course is beautiful and is in good shape. Great effort is made to maintain the natural beauty of the area. Play was a little slow at times but picked up near the end of the round. The only real negative was the beverage service. The young lady was great but our beverages were not cold at all. This was disapppinting as it was a very hot day. In any case, go play Thistle.
Great course great fub
Played this course when it first opened and it is still just as fun. What a great gem and interating layout. Played Stewart/Macay overall great condition although still recovering from being punched. Challenging course with plenty of beauty and well worth the trip!!!
Great layout but tee boxes need updating
Wife and I played Thistle as we usually do on our trip to NMB. Always enjoy the course. Wife loves the facilities (clubhouse, restaurant, outdoor seating area, on course restrooms, etc). All 3 nines are great layouts. However several of the boxes could use some updating, Need to be leveled as several were lumpy. Should be better tee boxes to match the high quality of rest of course. Also, the greens on Stewart were a good bit slower than the greens on MacKay. Also, I’d suggest installing GPS system in carts. Really helpful to see hole layouts and get distances to any area quickly which helps speed up play. Finally, I’d like to have seen staff wearing masks to help protect the customers of Thistle. Overall really enjoyed our day at Thistle but hope some improvements are made in near future. .
Challenging but fair
The staff was friendly and helpful. The course was in very good shape, especially this early into the golf season. It is a very challenging layout, but is also fair. We enjoyed the track very much!
Overall you cannot give this course antyhing but 5 stars. They were dooing a great job managing the COVID 19 constraints so services were partially available The staff was excellent and very friendly, loved the course, it is pricey so not something I wold do on a regular basis. But great course wold highly recommend it!
Course was wet, and was cart path only. However, it was a great layout with a combination of wide open fairways and strategy.
This golf course is in the best shape of any course I have played in months. Most people have a problem paying $100 for a round of golf, I don't and it was money well spent. I will be hers for a couple months and I will definitely play a couple more times before I leave. Also, I am from Orlando, where I played many different great golf courses in the last couple months.
The course was in great shape for this time of year, and a big rain yesterday, really enjoy playing this course
challenging layout and very scenic, staff are very friendly
First time playing course, was impressed with facility and grounds. I was disappointed with a course of this caliber that there wasn’t any rangers for pace of play. Back nine there 4 groups on at least 3 holes.
Outstanding Course / Great Layout
Outstanding course, scenery and layout in excellent condition. Layout is challenging, but fair for scoring with a few well-placed shots. Greens are fast, but true. Staff was friendly and conscientious. Pro shop was pristine. Course restrooms were outstanding.
Wet day at thistle
Absolutely love the layout at thistle. Recent rains forced cart path only, but my group still had a great time. Tee boxes were a little choppy but the fairways and greens were in excellent condition.
Played in under 4 hours on a Saturday. The course is in great condition, as always. Thistle has become my favorite course in the area since I consider it a demanding, yet fair, challenge for golfers of all experience levels.
Scotland across the Pond
This course captures the flavour of the true links as well as any on this side of the "big Atlantic hazard". The clubhouse alone is worth the price of admission, with a huge fireplace and a grand timbered structure. A great experience and test drive for a trip overseas,
