Where2Golf says: 

Old Thorns Golf & Country Estate: Located close to the Surrey - Hampshire border, in a picturesque area of woodland and heathland, Old Thorns has long been a favourite with golfers from near and far. From the layout's higher elevations, which involve one or two stiffish climbs on your way round, you are treated to magnificent views over the surrounding wooded countryside of North Hampshire. The opening par-4 and par-5 on this enjoyable and testing layout, provide an early indication that dog-legging holes will play an integral part in proceedings, and the tightish fairways will require some of your most accurate, straight-hitting if a good score is to be carded. Perhaps the most daunting of the tee-shots comes at the most spectacular of the holes. The plunging short par-4 5th needs no more than an iron from the tee, to set up an approach over water to a small green that nestles amongst the trees. Another testing tee-shot from a very scenic elevated tee comes at the excellent par-5 17th. Alongside the tighter more wooded stretches, the course also contains several pleasantly open stretches, where the presence of small lakes and occasional out-of-bounds will maintain the accent on accuracy versus length during your round.
