What the club says: Established and opened in 1980, Thorne is an exquisite Parkland Course set in the heart of South Yorkshire's beautiful countryside, and only minutes from the M180.
Thorne boasts 3 elegant water featured holes as well as tight fairways that are watched over by nearly 6000 fully developed trees. The course is family owned by Mr & Mrs. Richard Highfield and the course is managed by their son Edward & the clubhouse by daughter-in-law Hannah. We welcome players of all ages and abilities. Our course has been designed with a variety of holes that are both easy for the beginner yet challenging for the most avid golfer.

Needs some care and attention desperately

Having enjoyed this course in the past, we decided to give it another try after the recent rain. Unfortunately it was obvious from the first green and the course was not in the best condition and it got worse from there. Tee boxes were in bad condition, the bunkers had not been raked recently and many missing rakes or had broken ones. The edges of greens pitted and damaged, lots of areas of what would be GUR but not marked. Some greens had been hollow tined but in a very random way which meant it was impossible to make your ball head towards the pin. Unfortunately it does look like the course is struggling and maybe does not have the staff to bring it back to its former glory. Having said all this, it was only ?17 for the round, but I think I would rather pay ?20 and play somewhere in better condition. The course layout has always been interesting with the first 3 par threes all very challenging, but if you stray into a bunker then its a lottery as to what you will find when you get there. Aiming for the green can result in hitting a hole in the green or a rut and disappearing into the rough or trees. Hopefully they can recover the course over the winter.

Tricky but enjoyable

The terrain is flat but the course is tricky with frequent dog legs and very few opportunities to use a driver. The fairways and greens are in excellent condition. Bunkers were often unraked sadly.

Championship style course, quite long, excellent fairways and greens.
Bunkers a plenty and a few water hazards but a fair challenge.
Nice clubhouse with welcoming staff.

Challenging even though on paper it looks short

Some great looking holes. The scorecard yardage would suggest this is easier than it is. Tree lined fairways on most holes. The only negative is the greens were very slow. If this course could get the greens faster then this would put the icing on the cake for this great course.

Nice afternoon game

Played 11 holes after work one afternoon, the conditions were very hot, so can understand the firmness of some of the greens, I?d say the fairways are in really good condition, some of the greens are browned but it's been dry. Even though it's a short course it can be tight, so it can be challenging in places, some great island green holes and some quirky holes, worth the trip to play as it is an enjoyable track.
