Thornton Golf Club
Thornton Golf Club sprawls across an expanse of wooded parkland bounded by the River Ore. The course is mostly flat, making it easy to walk but don't let the lack of elevation deceive you. The golf course provides challenges for all skill levels, it especially tests players who have a tendency to hook their shots. The river comes into play on the par-3 14th hole, which is the first of a set of five demanding holes. Despite being some of the shortest holes on the course, they are actually the most challenging. Long hitters will have to be careful on these finishing holes. The final hole is longer than most of the course's short par 4s but it is more straightforward. In addition to the interesting round, Thornton Golf Club has built its reputation on the excellently maintained greens.

Played Thornton Park on the 1st of April.
Was very happy with the greens and the general condition of the course for the time of year.
Not a difficult track, but a nice challenge and a pretty golf course.
Would recommend and definitely play again.
First time playing and certainly won't be the last..greens immaculate and very fast..friendly welcome in.pro shop and members I spoke with very friendly.
Course in great condition for the time of year.
Thornton is a flat tree-lined parkland course with a good variety of holes. On the day of my visit the course was on 18 full greens & fairway mats. The greens were in excellent condition considering the time of year. Have visited Thornton before a couple of times in the last few months & would definitely recommend.
The course was in fantastic condition for the time of year . Fast greens , good pace of play . No complaints at all . The course may not any prizes for its layout but it rewards accuracy and it’s very possible to score well here
A hidden gem in The Kingdom
Fabulous course to test all levels of golfers. Course was in excellent dry condition and the greens are the best we have played on at this time of the year.
Staff were brilliant with us and gave us a great insight into the course. It's a pleasure to play and we shall be returning for another experience of Thornton GC.
Another good find
Having played Kirkcaldy the week before we ventured a few miles north to Thornton. A great find in excellent condition. Again the greens had been cored a few weeks ago and had come bacl really well and were running very smooth. Layout is a little up and down to start but there are some very interesting holes that need your fullattention. Mostly tree lined so acuracy is the key. A warm welcome from the pro and although we didnt visit the bar it looke dfriendly enough inside. Would defo revisit and recommend.
Thornton Golf Course
Lovely course, tree lined fairways, not alot of rough area's, very forgiving for medium to high handicap golfers like myself. I would highly recommend this golf course.
Very good course, some of the greens had some patches, but the pins were away from them, didn't interfere with the game at all. Nice layout, good overall condition.
played this course a few times but not for couple off years .forgot just how nice it is .a very fair course for all low handicaps to high .a few off the greens were patchy but understandable with dry spell we having . booked to play myself but was partnered by another player by the starter which was good . the course itself is really well laid out with a good mix off holes. plenty to keep you interested that's for sure .if you get the chance you must play it you must .I will be back soon .great deal from golfnow .
Course ‘executive’ abused us and told us to go back to where we came from which spoiled our experience and will not be back!!
Well worth a visit
Thornton is a terrific course with a good mix of interesting challenging holes and some really picturesque holes,
