Our favorite course in the area

The Thistle is our favorite course in the area. We play there most of the time and always find it in great shape with very friendly staff and great accommodations. If you haven’t played the Thistle, do yourself a favor and give them a try.

Great to be Back!

I loved this course when I played it 7 years ago, and. Couldn't wait to play it again. Fairways, lush...greens, fast and the course, overall is outstanding! Will definitely be back next time I'm in the area. Great, challenging track, but fair. A must play!

Very enjoyable, can't wait to return

It was a wet but pleasant late September day. Since the forecast was bad and it rained a bit, we had the course to ourselves. The course has 3 nines. We played 18 and really enjoyed ourselves in spite of the rain. The course is very well maintained and has a great layout. The clubhouse is gorgeous and the staff was terrific. I can’t wait to return.
