Have played here numerous occasions
Good course well laid out
Only negatives were fairways a little long but most of all a lack of yardage markers
And when they were around they were hidden well off the fairways
Great condition course for a November round
First time I have played this course, as a high handicap player I found the course challenging but very playable for a novice golfer.
The course is well drained and the water well managed to create some interesting hazards and an attractive over water hole 7th.
It would help to have a map on the scorecard or hole diagrams at the tees, due to the undulations it was not always obvious if some holes were straight or had slight dog legs plus some hidden bunker traps to catch you out.
The course is divided by a service road and the back nine across the road has a different feel, a little telitubby land finishing with a tricky 18th next to a small waterfall feature.
It felt nice to be out on a sunny autumnal day and will certainly come back again.
They helpful man in the proshop offered a preferred visitors card for future visits. Followed by a nice pint of London Pride on the well landscaped terrace
Sunday afternoon round
4 of us tee'd of just after lunch and found the course to be a good challenge. Short but requires you to think your way round. Course was in good condition but could do with some signs detailing where the next tee is as not always immediately obvious.
Been playing Thorny for years and the course has always been in good condition, however this time I think due to the amount of water they're putting on the greens and possibly not moving hole location for a while, all the holes were about half inch smaller than regulation (not just saying that cos I can't putt), also the fifth tee box is covered in thousands of what looks like tiny pieces of sea shell (not good if you care about your clubs). Don't let this put you off... the greens roll well and its value for money.
Bring a score card
If you are teeing off early make sure you have a scorecard as the shop will be shut and the clubhouse may not have any other than this great course members are generally ok
Originally teed off by myself but caught up with a member on the 2nd tee who helped me out around the course. Great conditions but the greens had a shed load of sand and holes where it was being maintained which meant I missed out on Points. Overall great course and will be going there more often!
