November at Old Thorns
Course starting to get soggy but perfectly playable. Greens were a little slow but true. The only moan really was that this was the 4th time I’ve played it and the 3rd time the range has been out of action. However at £15 a complete bargain.
Played here for the first time as part of a two night 2 round package booked through Golfbreaks. Course is very well laid out with some challenging holes and in a lot of cases position off the tee is more important than absolute length. Well done messers Alliss and Thomas.
Considering the time of year and the recent appalling wet weather the course was in good condition. There was some maintenance work ongoing but it has to be done some time and better in the winter than during the playing season.
WARNING - The walk between the second green and the thrid tee and also up to the fifteenth green is steep and requires some physical effort.
Overall definitiely recommend and my wife and I look forward to returning during the sumer months.
Pro shop assistant excellent. Older Pro bit of a grumpy old so and so. Course wasn't in the best condition. Hollow tuning had taken place but the fairways where in a bad way, lots of GUR bunkers left unraked by selfish golfers. Divots the same. This is an excellent course but sadly the number of hotel guests who are playing who don't observe golf etiquette and rules is on the rise. Slow play is standard and there isn't much that is done about it. Course starter doesn't do much either other than repeat what he says to each group playing.
This could be a fantastic place but needs a lot of TLC and cash spent on it.
Amazing course, a must for anyone. It was pretty wet, but giving the time of year and amount of rain. Can't stand people that slate courses in the winter will be returning here for sure in the summer, true gem
Elevated tee shots, great views, true test of golf.
