What the club says: This 6,581 yard, par 72 championship course was designed by Commander John Harris, one of Britain's best known course architects and completed by Peter Alliss and Dave Thomas. The rolling nature of the landscape makes idyllic golf terrain. Peppered with mature trees, natural springs and several lakes which add to the visual pleasure of playing the course. Having been sympathetically designed for the less proficient golfer, this magnificent course still affords the better player a real challenge.

Undergoing green maintenance on half the course so played the back 9 twice. We were not told this when booking although they knew work was being carried out. No discount or any effort made to apologise, in fact we were told take it or leave it ???? otherwise a good day out

Excellent course, well maintained. Would definitely recommend to others. Some greens a bit slow due to an application of sand but overall, brilliant.

Great Course

Really nice course with some lovely looking holes. Scenery is very nice.
Driving range is very small and basic and you can't use woods.

despite the recent rain, the course was in great condition (probably helped by buggies being kept to the paths). greens were very quick and ran true - highlighted my lack of game time recently, but Ill be back again. Very friendly front of house.

Kevin

Reading previous reviews i am surprised by the negative comments. I played off the yellow tees which made life a bit easier as i am sure this course could be set up to be a real test. Every hole is varied, fairways had a few patches but nothing to write home about. Greens were great but we have had some rain but still quick. Food in the Hotel was really good, all round really good course and venue.

Beautiful and varied holes

Old Thornes is a very playable course for all abilities, while remaining challenging an interesting, hole after hole. Most holes are incredibly picturesque with lots of pine lined fairways and greens as well as beautiful views of Hampshire.

It's a corporate resort course and the only criticism is that there seems to be a bigger emphasis on weddings than golf. That may be the reason for some of the partially negative reviews it gets about the quality of some of the fairways. But I don't think it's and issue. We had a deluge of rain on the Saturday or our weekend and no areas were unplayable.

All in all, a great venue for a society weekender and a lovely course to play!

Great setting and layout, shocking condition. Greens are ropey and the fairways bald in many areas. This course has not been maintained and needs money spending on it. A real shame

Worth a visit.....but probably in a year or so

Had a 1 night break food was great, hotel was great however the course....well it's a lovely setup and a very enjoyable course...very hilly first 5 holes then flattens out. However the condition scares me, the green's very patchy is understatement and fairways are pretty much dead....the 9th hole is becoming a short par 4...maybe drivable...not sure if the apartments built next to the hole hole are safe. All in all its a great set up...but course nweds a year or so to recover and get back to its best....

Absolutely awful condition... has any money and time been spent on this course? Terrible state greens (those that are actually in play and not temporary),numerous temp tees,fairways that are hard to differentiate from rough in some instances and are in appealing condition anyway. A shortened 9th hole (this has been like this for months) which makes it pointless. Terrible signage so easy to get lost. To have the cheek to charge £35 to play this course in the awful state it is in is a travesty bordering on highway robbery. There is some serious work needs to be put in to make Old Thorns even semi presentable. At present I would avoid at all costs and play somewhere that doesn’t resemble a cow field.
