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.

Good course with nice front 9
Front 9 is gorgeous, back nine is boring up to 17th..
Played there a few times and people are always loud there…screaming when making putts for 6, screaming boo ya when hitting drivers from the whites…raunchy..
Course was in great shape. Greens were very fair to play. Heavy downpours after 7 holes but course drained well, . Great value online.
Tim and Becky
another great day
met our cousins for a 9 hole couples outing. This is just a real pretty course, everything was in great shape considering all the rain lately, Greens were really nice, fairways very well groomed. Thanks for a nice outing, once again.
Don't ever go here
Don't ever go here. My wife paid over $130.00 for a reservation through this courses website. In the confirmation it states that there will be no problem in canceling. Apparently when you pre pay it is done through a third party. When they couldn't meet our needs we decided to go to another course. They have thus far refused to refund her money. This is unfair and not right. Don't ever go here or pre pay for a reservation as they will steal your money if you have a need to cancel.
Beautiful course incredible vistas tricky greens
Great place to play during the week
A bit crowded on weekends
Fun Course-, good layout-like all the courses , fairways are burnt due to no rain, greens in excellent condition
Very Cold and Very Windy Day
We were shocked when we arrived at the course and found they would not honor our Golf Now vouchers. They said they discontinued their ties to Golf Now and if we wanted to play we would have to pay the regular rate. They said they have notified Golf Now, but Golf Now continues to book tee times and take people's money.
I had tee time 11:50 4/03/2023.when I was there for play.Desk clerk said that no longer contract with golf now.from now on only contact thunderhart web site.If you want play,pay another.and then I paid that.please recognize and give me a credit.
Another great day
Just a real nice track with great views and great conditions considering all the rain lately. We really enjoy playing here.
Really nice experience
We played the front 9 at 1:00 on a Hot Deal. Considering all the rain we’ve had the course was in pretty nice shape. Some of the fairways were in process of being mowed but greens were all really nice. A. Rey pretty course on the front side. We’ll be back.
Absolutely love this course!
This was my second time playing this course (the first was during the COVID lockdowns). I was expecting a little bit of "sophmore-itus" from this course with me, but they did not disappoint. The GolfNow app made things so much easier. I showed up, they gave a key to my cart and said "go on out!" You can't make this process any more seamless, in my opinion.
As for the course conditions, I was expecting with the drought that occurred in the area during the summer that the course would suffer. Absolutely not. They either maintained themselves through it, or rebounded quickly but the greens were unblemished, the fairways didn't contain a spot of brown and the tee boxes were great! At one point, somebody who I can only guess either works on the grounds or manages the grounds asked me if the leaves were a problem (we played in October). Yes, leaves do fall. Yes, the course blows the leaves off the greens and fairways, but it's expected to have leaves on the course during October. Personally I believe they did an excellent job keeping up with it all, and I wasn't inconvenienced in any way.
I will most certainly be back to this course next season!
C'mon folks let's Play ready golf
A threesome in a cart held us up all day
They teed off at 11 and we're still on the 18th at 430....
I gave up on the 17th
Jumped ahead to the 18th
They ruined what would have been a lovely day
