Thistle Golf Club

This 27-hole links-style golf course was designed by architect Tim Cate and features beautiful wildflowers decorating the hillsides. The three nines at Thistle Golf Club are playable in three eighteen hole combinations: North/West, West/South and South/North. The greens are large, averaging 7,800-square feet, and are challenging due to some very intriguing breaks. The fairways are generous and meander through rolling terrain.
