Old Thorns is a well managed golf course and I’m sure Peter Alliss is proud to be President. The course starts with a good par 4 dogleg that can leave you with a blind approach to the green. The 2nd is also a dogleg but thankfully is a par 5, the big hitters may reach this in two but a birdie can just as easily be obtained with a well placed chip on in three.
Weston Turville is pleasant but surprisingly flat, considering it is set in the Chiltern Hills, the course was in great condition and you could not fault the fairways, tees or greens.
The course is quite open in places with the back nine being a little less intersting than the front, the flat land makes for easy walking but it also means that things can get a little difficult if the wind picks up.
