Reviewed Jul 23 2012 by Tony Cross, Poole, Dorset - rated 4 out of 5
Old Thorns has fantastic facilities around the clubhouse with a Starbucks, a great restaurant/bar, accomodation, a massive car park and an adequate driving range.

When it comes to the course we got a very good green fee rate which included a free meal on completion (Pie and Chips of which the pie was very dry and overcooked..), the course does struggle a little bit with its drainage, however, this didn't stop us having an enjoyable round. There were a good selection of holes and some great vantage points (You may have seen the 5th in many golf magazine adverts).
With the local area being home to some good quality golf courses this course lacks a little as it doesn't yet have the same history and classy feel (Course wise), having said that though its great value for money its well worth a stop.
Peter Alliss stated on the Open coverage this year that they were hoping to build a further "heather and pine" course on site which I can imagine could be even better looking at the land in the area.

No 9th hole now due to works so they have substituted by adding an extra par 3 (hole 4a)

A hidden Gem

What a fantastic set up.

Great staff, great course great value. Some of the most scenic courses I have ever played. Greens and course were in fantastic condition even though the weather tried its best to get us of the course.

Hadn't played here for while. Course in good condition given recent weather. Greens receptive and rolled well. Friendly welcome in pro-shop and decent value @ £25 for Sat twilight.

Excellent Golf Course

My first impressions were of a course that's just growing in stature, with lots of new hotel rooms being built alongside the 9th fairway. The facilities there are already impressive, with a huge spa, health club, and restaurants onsite. There was also a very pleasant welcome in the proshop, something that a few courses could learn from.

As for the golf course itself, with the greens having recently been treated I certainly didn't see it at its best. However, forgetting the greens on this occasion, the course is certainly lovely.

There are climbs to be made and wonderful views to be seen, and a large number of really great holes. There aren't really any bad holes, and none of the eighteen will feel the same as any of the others. The course is very fair and reasonably generous from the tee, although it's certainly not easy and there are a few holes which will require fairly tight drives or irons.

Highly recommended!

Great course worth the drive from London, as others have said scenic views. Some of the mid holes are not too inspiring but still test you.

Great hotel facilities. Course was a tad wet in places where there had been a lot of rain in last few days, but played ok. A couple of tee boxes were a bit scrubby

Lovely course. Tight tree lined fairways with a good variety of hilly and flatter holes. 10th hole bunker looked like a highly populated beach but otherwise the course was in great condition. Greens were fast but thankfully not lightning as some of the pin positions would have made it extremely difficult to save par.

Great designed course but not surprisingly there is a lot of standing water in the course after all the rain over the last 6 weeks. Still an enjoyable experience.

Very nice but tough course lots of trees and water so its really important to be straight off the tee. Driving range could be better great golf complex but have to agree with previous reviewer that the pro shop could be better. Delayed start by 2 hours because of frozen greens.

Course was good with fast greens. Pro shop not very welcoming, Pro was especially miserable and rude. Expensive as charged £30 for buggy plus £20 deposit for key: £5 for trolley plus £10 deposit for handle despite us staying at the Hotel for 3 days. Driving range so short you are not allowed to use woods. However, the hotel staff and facilities (pool, bar, restaurant etc) were all excellent.
