Thorn Apple Country Club
Thorn Apple Country Club is perfect for long hitters with the back tees stretching to over 7,000 yards, but there is enough variety in the layout to appeal to a variety of tastes and skill levels. The Jack Kidwell design features generous greens that are easy to hit balanced by challenging fairways. The club claims that if you can hit these fairways, you can hit any fairway. Water is a prominent feature of the golf course. A whopping 11 water hazards lurk throughout and come into play on most of the holes. There are also a few strategically placed bunkers to watch out for. There are a number of tricky holes, including a demanding 245-yard par 3. During a round, golfers might catch a glimpse of the redtail hawks, ducks, and geese that Thorn Apple Country Club shares the landscape with.

Mid day round
Hit the ball pretty well on a cool fall day. Putting was an adventure as they have begun to aerate. Still managed to sink a 40 footer for birdie. The course is so long, it makes it tough to score. A couple of the Par4’s would be Par 5’s at most other courses, and the Par 3’s are a test for sure. I’ll be back for the test again,
Decent but not coming back
Overall, decent place to golf. Holes are a little too long for my preference but overall, maintained well. My biggest issue was the starter/owner (old guy). He was very pushy and not very polite. I was first told i wasnt allowed to bring my lunch cooler...which had only water. No drink cart was going around either. He then proceeded to yell at us to get on the tee box and start to not hold back the other groups. The group in front was 200 yds out.... I won't be back.
Long but Wide Open
I like this course but there isn't a whole lot to it. You can make a lot of mistakes and get away with them since it is fairly open.
