Thornhill Golf Club

We are planning to book the "Thornhill Golf Club" for our wedding this summer. Unfortunatly I could not find anything about this place in Chowhound. I must say they have been very easy to deal with and very thorough when we visited there.

Can anyone comment on their overal food service? or the quality of their food?

  1. I'm almost certain they changed chefs last year. My one visit (about 2 years ago) was unexciting with more emphasis on the ambiance than on the plate. Safe!

      Thank you for your reply, we visited the club a couple of days ago and they have renovated the main ballroom, new painting and carpet (the same dark colour divider though). However, yes you're right... it's old and a little dark.

        Do you have your sights set on a golf course wedding? If so, I'd like to suggest the Mandarin Club on Kennedy, just north of Elgin Mills (a few miles north and east of Thornhill). They have a very nice, bright room, and a Hong Kong trained chef who makes superb Chinese food.

          thanks again, mary.

      1. I too am interested to know opinions on quality, quantity and service for Thornhill's banquet facilities. They seem to have a varied menu to choose from with reasonable prices ( for this type of service ).

          Let me suggest that you investigate the facilities at the Richmond Hill Country Club, right next to the separate Richmond Hill Golf Club, just off north Bathurst Street. I attended a superbly-run buffet-style Sunday birthday luncheon for about 85-90 there a month or so ago, and everything seemed fresh and tasty and inventive. The club has several different rooms that can be used, depending upon the size of the gathering. Sorry that I don't know what the place charges, but the host of my get-together knows how to assess good value for such shindigs. Good staff, easy parking, immaculate surroundings.
