Probably the best in the area

I played he in a visiting society and the course was the best i have seen it. The general condition is exceptional and great value for money. greens very slick and good definition all round. Our food was good and washed down with a cheeky pint or two. staff were excellent, friendly and attentive throughout. Our society will return again but i will return with a few others.

A fair course which offers a challenge to the higher handicap golfer but doesn't punish them. Greens are in excellent condition as are the fairways.

Always Open

Very good course with very fair layout for all standards of golfer. Mid to high handicappers will especially like the forgiveness in places, but danger still lurks for the wrong choice of shot or anything too wayward.

Horrendous weather recently but Thornbury has remained open for all but the heaviest snow coverings, handles the water really well when most other courses would be closed. Great staff and friendly atmosphere in the clubhouse.

A great golfing venue

My friends and I really enjoy playing at here, we chose here over other nearby venues as its excellent value for money, the course is always in good condition regardless of the time of year. The club always seems to be upgrading their facility both on and off course. This is great to see and shows that they put money back int the club. See you soon!

Fantastic Place to play golf and socialise

I played Thornbury last weekend and although the course is wet the general condition is very good and much better that my home course. people do forget that the weather has been against golf courses and they expect the course to be dry, well its winter golf for a reason and that reflective in the price. I will continue to return and recommend to all golfers and those who want a bite to eat as the food is very good.

(Round played: Sep 2015 - Score: 96 Handicap: 15.9)

The Marlwood course was in excellent condition today. The greens were generally firm with very short grass but also smooth and predictable (however the balled stopped quickly from a high pitch). The fairways were wonderful (not that I was on them much). Some of the rakes at the bunkers need replacing as they are missing teeth. But the course is in lovely condition.

The Marlwood course has wide open fairways allowing you to hit the ball long and slightly erratically without punishment. This course will favor the longer hitter as there is only one hole which requires tactical layup shot, due to two hazards on hole 17.

I feel the course requires a twilight price as £14.50 is quite expensive for fading autumnal light (I got 15 holes done in good light, 2 holes is poor light and one hole in near pitch darkness (I'm stubborn)). Currently their are two local courses with green fees of £10.

The beautiful course in Thornbury is where I learnt to play golf so it will always provide me with nostalgic memories. The course is in good condition and is maturing nicely. It was busy that Sunday evening and the grass on the greens was a little flat making it hard to hold on the greens and making putting tricky. The rough was extremely dense on that day making it impossible to find wondering balls.

I love the views from the 8th tee across Thornbury and 15th tee across the severn. Some holes feel a little repetitive, for example the four par 3s are very similar yardages.

Heavy downpour the day before and the corse was very wet, with a number of puddles on greens and in bunkers. On one hole the flag was in the middle of a very big puddle and unplayable. I had to pull out an old hole and put the flag in that. I've played this course many times and it is usually in a brilliant condition.

Played the High Course in September for £12.50 (as it was after 2pm)... great value. Interesting course with well designed holes all the way. Greens were quite poor, but I think we were unlucky with the timing (they'd just done a weeks maintenance on them). Tee positions were very different from White to Yellow, so offer a good test for low handicappers, as well as being a fairly kind course for my two mates who play off 20 or more. Very enjoyable round, and finished with a decent pint in the clubhouse (which is pretty good along with the pro shop too). Will defo visit again sometime.

Played the Par 3 "Severn View Course" on Saturday 30th July 2011. The course was busy and cost £12.50 per person. The greens were slow but well kept, flat and fairly large. A good test of your short game with the longest hole measuing 207yds and the shortest at 80yds.Not too many bunkers but some are very well placed, worth a game with some great views on some holes, noteably the 12th which has a severe drop down. Well enjoyed and carded a gross 55 (+1).

Played on Monday 25th August 2011. Booked 1st tee time at 07.04 and must admit that in 30 years of golf Thornbury rates as one of my best experiences. The greens were amazing and the cousre in very good condition indeed. We played on a 2 fore 1 at £11.75 per person, if you have not visited Thornbury i can say you won't be dissapointed.

played on 16th April, course playing very well, not a lot of gease poop on the 10th (locals will understand), the final bunker on the 11th still needs some work on it. the water was low in the hazards on the 17th (very minor). Some idiot tried to speed us up by hitting a drive near us (could have been any where), being held up in front didnt help (learn the rules, play to the people in front and wait).
