The tee area was more like the rough.......fairways had not been cut for quite a while.....the green had not been cut in quite a while.....I have seen better pitch and putting courses

Got caught behind a “society”. “Sorry it’s slow, we can’t let you through as we are a society”.... what a load of old pony! Signs everywhere about slow play, but ignored because they were a society........ruined the last 12 holes.

Played this course numerous times. Quality GC for the money. Average buggy price £15. Great driving range facility. On the day we played it was slow! Greens had been recently airiated but ran quite true. The yellow tees were slightly overused.

My sand iron was used on more than one occasion but the sand in the bunkers was forgivingly good .

Overall a good 4+ hours for £11.++++ Good quality 19th hole with a few real ales and good food menu.

+ met with an old friend Penny!! SAM

Have played ThorpeWoodGolf many times before and always found the course to be a good challenge for the amateur golfer.

Course in very good condition with true greens and lush fairways. The only criticism was the tee boxed which were generally quite worn and it seemed as though the tee markers had not been moved for some time.

Generally an enjoyable morning out.

Great value for money. If the course was in better condition this could be a superb course but then it might not be such great value for money. The greens were ok/good. But tee and fairways were not great for summer conditions.

Highly recommended trying this course. One of the best in the area.

We played this course after about a 3yr absence and would travel 20+ miles to play. This was because you could guarantee good quality greens, fairways and sand traps.

It now has a new golf shop and driving range which is a great addition, however the course really has not been kept up to the wonderful standards it once was. The greens were very patchy, weeds growing in the bunkers, the fairways were in good condition but generally we were so disappointed because it used to be so good.

Arrived at the course on time for our tee off, really easy check in process and we were off an playing in 10 mintes. For a Bank Holiday the pace of play was excellent, other golfers on the course were all well behaved and polite. Great day out.

Played today breezy and overcast. A very good challenge even from the more forward tees, no run on the ball. Fairways were a bit sticky in places but in very good condition. Greens quick for the time of year having recently been aeriated and sanded. The course always presents well. Staff at the course were excellent.
