Nice course

I found this course a bit dangerous at times with balls coming our way from other holes.

never played before

Thornton's first 6 holes are back and forth and all pretty close to each other but after that the course opens out and is pretty nice to play - the last 4-5 hug the boundary of the course with water, rough and out of bounds dominating but nice challenging holes

Great parkland course, well managed, good greens and fairways. Challenging enough yet offering open space for the wayward tee shot. Facilities good and the staff and club members were most welcoming.

Disappointed

Played today was disappointed. Course drainage was not the greatest but given the weather this could be overlooked. Nice glossy website and the little of the club house I saw looked welcoming -shame it was closed at 4pm when I finished my round despite advertising it was open. Was looking forward to relaxing in the welcoming bar with a nice pint but ...... The course was in good condition despite of the weather but overall it gives the impression that Thornton Golf Club is not open to visitors.

This course has come on leaps and bounds over that last 30 years Originally only nine holes, it was extended and a new full service clubhouse built. The members and committee deserve great praise to have turned the course into the place it is.

Nice parkland course. Quite flat, and trees line most fairways punishing shots which aren't straight!! Greens were in fantastic condition and quick.
