Thorne Hills Golf Course Scorecard

Thorne Hills Golf Scorecard
HOLE ONE

This is a long par 5 with a water hazard just short of the green and bunkers to the left of it.  Don’t go over because you’re out of bounds on the back side and to the right if you do.

Golfers Say:

Steve:

“When you are done with it, it will tell you how the rest of your day will be.”

Jerry:

“Nice and long plus the creek to get over.”

HOLE TWO

This is a short par 4 requiring a perfectly hit drive between trees or an accurate lay up for a short chip shot to a small green.

HOLE THREE
This is an easy nine iron shot to a generous sized par 3 green.

Golfers Say:

Patrick:

“Hole number 3 is a short par 3 along the road.”

HOLE FOUR

This is the second most difficult dog leg on the course.  Out of bounds on both sides with lots of trees.  It takes three perfect shots to reach the par 5 green in regulation!

HOLE FIVE

A nice draw shot can reach this par 4 in one.  It’s got an open, large green that is guarded by an old hickory tree.

HOLE SIX

A low fade shot will get you in striking distance for a pitch to this hard to hold par 4.

HOLE SEVEN

This short par 4 is guarded by large bunkers and water to the right and behind the tee.

HOLE EIGHT

This elevated green is not visible from the tee.  It’s a par 4 dog leg to the left that is protected by a picturesque pine island and pond.  The soft green is very receptive to high approach shots.

Golfers Say:

Brian:

“I’m a fan of 8. Long, dog leg around the water. Love the elevated green too. It dares you to “muscle up” just a little bit.”

HOLE NINE

This is the signature hole at Thorne Hills.  It’s deceiving with it’s rolling hills and bunkers.  Be sure to use enough club on this par 3.

Golfers Say:

Steve:

“I love number 9, you can leave some wild putts if you aren’t accurate.”

Jeanette:

“My family always called it the ‘Dolly Parton’ hole because the green… Well, it has a few hills.”

HOLE TEN

Narrow and tree lined, this is the most difficult par five on the course.  It takes three perfectly placed shots to score well on this dog leg!

HOLE ELEVEN

Here you’ll find another invisible green.  The dog leg right is a simple par four with a large green-side bunker.

HOLE TWELVE

With an elevated tee, tree hazards, and water hazards on the left, this sloping par 4 green can be interesting to putt.

HOLE THIRTEEN

This is another tree lined narrow shot.  It’s a par five dog leg with green-side bunkers.  Easy does it here; accuracy counts!

HOLE FOURTEEN

This soft par three green should put a birdie feather in your cap!

HOLE FIFTEEN

This is a short par three, however as an island green surrounded by bunkers it’s sure to test your skill with a short iron!

Golfers Say:

Colleen:

“I love 15! I like using a sand wedge to get one off the tee over the water and onto the green!”

Lori:

“Island hole….Unique.  I love it. No one else has one. It’s unique and challenging.”

AJ:

“Reminds me of a similar how I used to love to play at TPC Sawgrass in my golfing video games.”

HOLE SIXTEEN

This par four dog leg can be straightened if you can carry the pond on the left.  Watch out for the hills on the right!

HOLE SEVENTEEN

This par four is made interesting by a small sloping green that features an “in green” bunker as well as large bunkers to the right.

Golfers Say:

Kermitt:

“My favorite because you have to hit well AND straight to reach the green.”

HOLE EIGHTEEN

An elevated tee and small bunkers make this par four an easy finishing hole.  This achievable par four has pleased many a golfer.

Golfers Say:

Patrick:

“My favorite is without a doubt hole 18. I love when my tee shot reaches the green on a par 4!”
