My favorite course on the strand. A must play. A bit pricey for a retiree to play on a regular basis, but plan to hit it at least once every season. All three nines are special and offer a challenge to all levels of golfers.More

We don't play The Thistle enough. This course is always a gem. Even though it was late December and wet, the course was in great shape. The greens roll out so if you can stomach a four foot come-backer you've found the right place. Jeff...More

I will be playing Thistle in September for a guy's golf trip. We may only have time to play 18 of the 27 holes. Can anyone recommend which 2 9's we should play? Do they offer a discounted rate to play the 3rd 9 if we do have time before dark? Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks
