  • Beautiful golf club. Very nice conditions. Three nines. Club house is good, food better than average
  • Buyer Beware! The greens are SHOT. I wouldn't pay $149 due to the greens. Ask for a discount. According to employees, they were sold the wrong fertilizer. The greens are completely burnt out. Other than that, the course is in excellent shape (fairways, tee boxes are perfect. Staff was great as always. It's a shame. The nicest course in the area has messed up greens.
  • Played all 3 layouts and all 3 lots of fun. Gave 4 only because greens on Mackay are healing from February damage. Friendly people. Highly recommend.
  • We were very disappointed with the management and condition of the greens. As we drove into the course, we noted discoloration of the greens. We asked about it before we paid, we were told that the greens had been stressed due to improper treatment with chemicals but we're rolling true. Well we paid our full green fee and proceeded to play. It only took us to the first hole to realize we had flat out been lied to, the greens were bumpy, and appeared to be dead with those ares painted green. After playing the 2 previous days on courses with excellent conditions, greens included, at lower fees than here, we really felt taken advantage of. It would have been nice to have been alerted in advance of the condition of the greens, after all with the cost of golf, one wants to feel you get what you pay for. That is not the case at Thistle at this time.
  • The most unique and stunning Golf Club and gated community for many miles around. You will feel as though you've been transported to the Scottish Highlands with the authentic architecture of the upscale clubhouse and high-end homes. Truly must see in person to appreciate.
