What the club says: Our 9 Hole Golf Course is a 1879 yard parkland type course which overlooks the beautiful Welland Valley.
The course consists of six par three holes and three par four holes which may sound short or unorthordox to the purist, but we can assure you with the tight fairways and target greens it makes for an interesting round of golfer for a player of any experience.

Most Helpful Review
(Round played: Dec 2015 - Score: 79 Handicap: 14) The course is usually in very good condition but because of all the rain we have been having it was very soft underfoot, some of the bunkers had a bit of water in but not all. With it being so soft you had to get your distances exact because there was no roll on, it was more difficult than it
usually is, still enjoyable though. - Dec 29 2015

Golf Course Reviews for Blackthorn Wood Golf Complex
A neat little course that challenges your short game, it is in really good condition at the moment. If you want 18 holes you go round twice for the same price as 9, which is really good value. The clubhouse has bar & restaurant sections, what was the shop now houses a golf simulator. It also has a proper range with about 30 spaces.
Well worth a visit.
(Round played: Oct 2017 - Score: 80 Handicap: 14.7)
The course is quite challenging for a 9 hole course it has three par 4's and the rest are par
3's, conveniently placed bunkers and ponds mean you often have to lay up on par 4's, the
9th is on a plateau about 6 feet high, the clubhouse has a bar and other amenities and it is the same price whether you play 9 or 18 holes. It also has a full driving range.
(Round played: Oct 2016 - Score: 21 Handicap: )
(Round played: Apr 2016 - Score: 81 Handicap: 14.6)
The course was in good condition for the time of year and weather. The greens were quite fast and mostly green (not much straw colour).For anyone who has'nt played there, its a fairly short 9 hole course but its not easy, its quite narrow in places with challenging bunkers and ponds strategically placed. It has 3 par 4's and 6 par 3's. It is also good value because it cost the same for 18 holes (twice round) as it does for 9. There is a restaurant or snacks at the counter, a golf range and shop, all in all just about anything you would need. Also there is the Blackthorn Society, a friendly club that is always looking for new members.
