Thorncreek Golf Course
Great price for a round. super windy but overall nice
The course gets significantly more difficult on the back nine. lots a ob. a ton of raised greens but they were slow. which i liked.

Great course, but wait to play until summer
Coming off a cold and snowy winter had made certain parts of the course very unplayable, though they did not mark the areas (some fairways had dead spots/dirt on certain parts). It was drizzling and cooler that day, but the course was set up fair and was very playable. One thing they need to do is get someone out there to fix divots and ball marks, as there were a substantial amount that I repaired for them. I really liked how they kept the sand traps, as they were raked nicely and the sand was fluffy like it should be. Rough had some dead spots, but was very nice to hit out of. Overall, the course was in great condition for the beginning of spring, but I expect it to get better as it gets into summer as it usually does.
*Note: I played by myself and with no one on the course, and the time played does not reflect how fast it is to usually play here (usually between 4 1/2 hrs. to 5 hrs.)

Not too tough
Weather was perfect, grass was ok for March, never saw one cart girl, greens were ok for March.

Visually interesting and challenging course...beautiful mountain views!
Visually interesting course with many elevated greens. Fairly challenging. Slow play can be a problem but the beautiful mountain views help pass the time!

January Golf in Colorado!
Can I complain? NO! The driving range has the best quality mats you can buy. The course was clear of snow and the greens were not frozen! Pace of play was quick, and the front desk guy was friendly! Very easy and for the price it was by far the best deal north of Denver for this time of year.

Decent course if you can get a good deal.
The course was in fairly good shape. The greens were rolling well at a good pace. The only problems were in the fairways. A couple spots were in need of attention.

Great course and will challenge any golfer
We have played the course several times this year and it has been in great shape. Staff is always friendly. A good deal for the money.

TIght track with a lot of character
Great bang for the buck. The course is tight and challenging, you'll have to use more than just your driver on a lot of holes. A thinking man's course. The greens are fast and undulating. A few of the greens were down right small. The holes definitely all have character.

Course needs some attention
Took a customer to play, somewhat disappointed in some areas of fairways and greens.
Fairways had several spots that I would consider "under repair". Some greens were extremely bumpy. Still I enjoyed the round.

Course was in very good shape, weather perfect. Couldn't beat the price.
Thorncreek has always been one of my favorite courses. It seems to be in better shape since the change in management. The current rate on Sundays can't be beat.

Great deal on a great course
Thorncreek runs a "all you can play" special durring the NFL season on Sundays, and this was an amazing deal on a very well kept course. The fairways and turf were in fantastic shape for the middle of October. The greens were some of the most difficult I have ever played, with multiple tiers, slopes and major elevation changes. My only complaint was that the course really bogged down in the afternoon when we were ready to play our 2nd 18, but overall it was a fun time and I will be back.
October 22, 2012
Course in good shape. If you don't play fairways, bring lots of balls. We played for $19, at that price, a super bargain.
October 16, 2012
Course is fun, not too easy, not too hard. Greens were a little beat up, lots of unfixed divots. Pace was great.

I flew in from Florida the day before I played this round. Maybe it's the switch between Bermuda and whatever grass was at this place (probably bent?), but it was like played on perfection. The rough was substantial but not impossible to play out of. The greens rolled as true as when I played Torrey Pines. For $24, this was an absolute steal. Would most definitely recommend.
October 12, 2012
oh no not again!
waited on every shot had 4 groups on one hole alone, left after 9 holes we couldnt take it any more. it was the second time in three weeks .it will be our last time

Great putting surface
Some of the fairways could use a little work. Might need some better irrigation. Traps, tees and greens in great shape, especially this late in the season.

Not very much bang for your buck!!!
If I hadn't got a deal on Golf Now and had to have paid full price to play this course, I would have been even more dissapointed than I already was. It started off with the gentleman working behind the counter in the Pro Shop. We'll just say that his people skills need a lot of work. The course was in terrible shape, bare spots that had turned to mud holes because of a little rain, standing water in some spots. Will not play this course again.

Fall golf at Thorncreek is surprisingly good!
I played over 10 years ago and it frankly wasn't all that memorable, but the improvements to the golf course have made it one that I'll come back to time and time again!
October 5, 2012
the course was In good shape, great deal with the fall frenzy.
October 4, 2012
just a fun track that forgives and allows good scoring from good shots.
Lots of variation and some very tough holes... no. 2, no. 11, no. 18
Great value from Golfnow.
I will try again.

Great Condition, Great price
I usually play before 8 AM and because of that I get to take advantage of $25 green fees with a cart and what a deal. The course was in great shape when we went, the greens were being worked on, on the back 9 but the greens rolled true and the course was in great shape.

Maintenance of the course has been a challenge for the operators of this facility. This year there has been a marked improvement in the fairways and the greens. Most of the bare spots are gone. Have always like the course. Much better now.
