Rating 71.7

Located in the Great Northern Catskills, Thunderhart Golf Course at Sunny Hill is settled within the Catskill basin. The course offers both scenic views and a challenging design. The front nine is a traditional layout with some holes that long hitters will enjoy. There are three that measure over 500 yards. On the slightly tougher, parkland-style back nine each hole was carefully carved from the mature forests that sprinkle the rolling hills. Eleven ponds come into play throughout and the bunkering is minimal, but memorable. Though there are only 15 of them, they are strategically placed to provide a challenging test. In addition to the golf course, there is also a large 250-yard driving range available. Thunderhart is part of Sunny Hill Resort, which offers another 18-hole championship golf course that has a more resort-style feel.

First Timers

Course was a nice change of pace to most of the flat courses I’ve played in Ohio. Pace of play was within traditional expectations.but we did get stacked up. Greens were challenging and a bit long is my only knock. I would not have found the course without GolfNow.

First Time Playing

This was my first time playing Thunderhart golf course. When checking in , the starter was very accommodating, offering me Ibuprofen for my aching back, lol. I’m sure many other senior golfers can relate to that. The course was very scenic, really good overall condition, with nice greens. Although over an hour plus from home, I will definitely play again!
