Thunderhart Golf Course
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.

My wife and. I played with our son and daughter-in-law. Enjoyed the course and the day. Looking forward to the next time.
Fun and friendly environment
We, group of 8, had a spare time to enjoy golfing while staying at cabin in Catskill, and it ended up having the best day while golfing. Course was spotless, well cared. Greens were perfect. Not too easy, but just hard enough to be fun and challenging. Staff were all very friendly as well as all the players there. Planning to visit very soon.
Worth the trip!
Everytime I play thunderhart, I leave in good spirits. Staff and crew always friendly, greens hold incomng shots and roll true. Fairways and tees need some overseeding, but other than that, course plays challenging yet fair. Great mix of holes and shots. You will use every club in your bag. Will return a few times this year.
Beautiful course with beautiful views. Greens were in great shape along with the fairways and tee boxes. Wasn’t over busy, didn’t need to rush, slight wait due to elderly gentlemen enjoying their game.
From the staff(above and beyond), to the upkeep, to the course layout, this course is fantastic!! Loved everything about it
What a course! Beautiful Pro Shop!! Bought my Huntington Beach putter!!!
The staff was super friendly in helping me purchase my putter from them. The course is kept beautifully. One of the finest rounds i’ve had in a while
Great course, great price
Thunderheart is a beautiful course, the deal I got on Golfnow was fantastic. Great round of golf with my son.
in the mountains and a great view of the Catskills,First 9 is hilly with some water and the back 9 is more level with doglegs and a little more water.There is a lot of woods.
if you stayed in the fairway and rough you could find your ball.All the leaves was out of the playing area.Great place to play.
Our return to Thunderhart
My wife and I had played Thunderhart before but never their sister course Sunny Hill. This time we stayed over and played them both. The people you deal with are the best and always willing to do anything to help. It is a great value and both courses have excellent layouts with very interesting holes. Thunderhart is the true championship course while Sunny Hill is shorter with more par threes and very friendly to beginners while still challenging the better golfers. We had so much fun we are planning a trip next year with several couples. Can't wait
Do not book on GolfNow
Made a reservation through GolfNow. Paid $20 for the reservation, with the remainder to be paid at the course. Drove three hours from Long Island to the course, only to be told that there was an outing and they were not honoring reservations. Guy specifically said that they don't communicate with GolfNow and the app never seems to know whether they actually have the tee times they advertise.
The tee boxes and fairways were very hard and felt like playing on cement. The grass was largely brown and dead. Not a well taken care of course. Was excited to play on vacation since the reviews were so good.
Fathers Day Finesse
My husband and I had an exceptional time golfing on Sunday of Father’s Day weekend. Staff is friendly . Course if beautiful!! The greens are spongy and well taken care of. Excellent relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommend!!
Best value golf in the Catskills
I lucked out and moved near Thunderhart Golf Course, part of the Sunnyhill Resort. The course has a great layout: front has a few narrow fairways but not too many hazards; the back nine is flatter but has more water to avoid. Members there are all friendly, and the staff is superb. Thunderhart is VERY popular with Stay and Play guests many from overseas.
First time play, and it was cold and breezy, but we had a wonderful time playing your scenic and charming course. Thanks!
