The phrase “well kept secret” is a well-used expression, but it does fit Trethorne. Although it was voted “best in county” in the nineties, it is not as well-known as some of its more famous rivals.
However, amongst people who have played it, it’s a venue that people return to time and time again due to its memorable holes and hospitality. Trethorne is a great society or group venue given the fact it is part of a club complex with other entertainment, for example ten-pin bowling, leisure centre, theme park etc.
It is quite a testing course…..up hill and down dale, doglegs in both directions with enough water features and woods to keep everyone interested.
There are plenty of slopes and blind shots, so it is well worth buying a course planner. The greens are quick with plenty of subtle breaks.
The 4th hole is a real challenge but a lot of people’s favourite is the par 3 5th across a valley with trees all around.
