What we say...

3.5 out of 5

A splendidly scenic and rolling Peter Alliss design - it was built on steeply undulating forest land - which meanders through mature timber and is usually found in tip-top condition. Spectacularly opened in 1992 with an exhibition match involving legends Jack Nicklaus and Seve Ballesteros.

Dave Thomas and Peter Alliss were commissioned to create Old Thorns following the death of original architect John Harris in the mid-1970s. And they combined to create a par-72 parkland beauty placed firmly the map in the early 1980s with an official opening exhibition match involving Jack Nicklaus, Seve Ballesteros, Isao Aoki and then Open champion Bill Rogers. Today, thickly tree-lined and wonderfully undulating, Old Thorns has developed into an outstanding layout.

Various forms of wildlife inhabit this classic parkland amidst scenic countryside among North Hampshire rolling hills. Lined by mature trees, you also have to avoid a number of lakes and streams to conquer this Peter Alliss beauty.

Course Description

The magnificent Old Thorns golf course winds its way through the verdant rolling hills of the estate and offers fantastic views at every turn. Mature trees, natural springs, lakes and testing bunkers give real character to the golf course which, while kind to the less experienced golfer, holds some surprises for the golfer who enjoys a challenging round. Old Thorns’ team of resident PGA professionals offers tuition on the driving range, chipping area, putting green or on the golf course itself. The PGA-approved pro shop stocks a wide range of golf merchandise and also hires out buggies, trolleys, graphite clubs and golf shoes.

Needs some TLC

By Flash5

A mixture of good holes and average to poor holes. Many poor tees (mats etc). Greens very pock marked and extremely bumpy. Saving grace is the landscape and amazing views. It is an enjoyable if hilly course but the poor greens make scoring difficult. The layout needs reviewing. Pro shop is some distance from the 1st tee and we never found the locker room.

Good and bad

By r.britton@lineone.net

Old Thorns pro shop are very unwelcoming. On top of this they 'accept' greenfree vouchers, but even though they quote you in 2 separate phone calls £25pp, they still insisted on charging us £30pp. We could have paid £30pp anyway as we happened to have booked a twilight tee time, without our greenfree voucher, but they insisted on taking it still. £5pp or a greenfree... read more

Superb golf venue!

By EdGreen

We went here for our golf society this summer and absolutely loved it. The condition of the whole course was imaculate from tee to green. The greens were especially good, some like glass. The fairways looked and were superb especially for this time of year. Some cracking holes that make you think, namely the 5th, 15th, 16th, 17th. All in all a superb venue and definately worth a play, i will be... read more

Not long but accuracy required off the tee

By filthyc

Check in at the pro shop where you'll find service for the driving range and direction to the putting green and 1st tee. Its like a game off chess at Old Thorns. You require good positioning off the tee on the 1st,3rd,5th,9th 11th and so on... A well kept course and manicured greens no matter what time of year. Take advantage of the views whilst teeing off on the 5th, before taking on the... read more
