The Thorny Lea Golfing ExperienceOur club has long been renowned not only for the quality of the grounds, but also for the caliber of the play by our members. Year after year over the decades, the tally of single-digit handicappers at clubs across the state has always found the membership at Thorny Lea at the top of the list. The club boasts numerous Massachusetts Amateur champions, men named Ed (Smiley) Connell, John Tosca (2), Bruce Douglass (2), Steve Tasho (2), and John Hadges (2). We play on a course where golfing legends named Ouimet and Hagen and Sarazen and Nelson and Zaharias have taken a crack at par and come up short.
The scorecard shows Thorny Lea as a par 70 at 6,456 yards from the tips.
