Thorny Lea, I hope to see you soon...

I was invited to play Thorny Lea and it was fantastic!!! I want to play it again. The course was in great shape and the greens are fast. What a track!!! I agree, challenging but fair. If you get the chance to play this course, I recommend you do it without hesitation.

Greetings Thorny Lea, I will see you soon!

If not for the symphony...'d never know you were in Brockton. Terrific layout plays longer than the yardage. I've seen coyote, herons, turtles and turkeys here, in the middle of a city!
Greens are hard and FAST. Great staff.
