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.

Must play

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.

Like playing this course as this is where I first learned to play. Clubhouse and facilities are very tired and could do with an uplift.

Dissapointed

As I expected ,boggy, poor greens ,etc It will be a long time before I return to thorne as there is no real care taken about the course I paid £16 to play greens not as good as some fairways ive played on and its a shame because its a nice flat short easy walking course and with a bit more tlc it could be a joy to play.Still have buggies on churning up the course £££££££££££££££

Played on 21st July 19 and quite frankly it was poor. There were weeds in some of the greens, well I say greens more like a par 3 pitch and putt standard. A short course so good fun for the big hitters and the B9 was certainly better than the front.... shame as it just needs some TLC and would be really nice as it has some lovely aspects!! Come head green keeper pull your finger out......!!\\\\\\\\We also ordered a buggy which looked like Chevy Chase had just given it back after a summer vacation, need I say more.... fair to say we wont be recommending, sorry!!

society day

Thorne golf club is a very traditional club and very set in there ways
the general course was in fairly good condition but some of the pin positions were a bit ridiculous
one was even blind approach on a par 3 hole
greens were not the best condition with very bobbly and grass contamination has left bare patches
club house very dated and old fashioned but pleasant

Great little course

Played on 19/5 and the course is in very good condition, well maintained, and for ?10 (twilight from 2pm) excellent value for money. Maybe not challenging enough for lower handicap players as the course is a little short, but well worth a look for higher handicap/ novice players.
