I wish I had known about this course earlier in the season as I would have played there more. The staff and all players were very friendly and courteous. It seemed like a lot of retirees like to play here. Two groups allowed me to play through while they were standing in the middle of the fairway? which seemed strange to me as I'm used to having a group wait at the next tee. Not too difficult,rolling fairways and has many holes that reward those with huge RH draw bomb drives. Fall rate was $48 to ride and i think $30 to walk it. I've played at a lot of courses that cost pretty much the same or a little more and weren't half as nice. I was very pleased overall and will definitely be back next season quite a bit.

Hillview is a fun round of golf. Not overly challenging, you can feel like you had a good game more often than not. Yes, the back nine is more difficult than the front and it can be slow on the weekends. All in all, Hillview is well maintained and excellent value.

Typical Municipal Course. Nothing special. Played on a Saturday and had a 5 hour + round. Seems to attract a lot of hackers and newcomers to the game. Must say I never heard from the neighboring holes the four letter word (both “fore” and the other four letter word) more than on this course. With all the errant balls, the last two holes, because of their setup, can be dangerous.

Great course for the average golfer. Pretty short but some interesting hole designs make up for any lack of length in my opinion. It's fun to play as the shortness lends itself to some good scoring chances especially if you have a good driving day.

Very well maintained, and as the previous reviewer noted its a good walking value for a weekend. One of my favorite courses overall in the area.

Very nice course and a very easy course to walk. Good value at $39 to walk 18 on weekends. Nice driving range and practice green. One thing to note is that it's cash only. There is a nice pub associated with the course for lunch after your round.

This is a great course. It has a variety of different hole layouts requiring a variety of different shot and shot shapes. There is a distinct difference btween the front 9 and the back 9, with the front playing longer and somewhat flatter, and the back playing up and down some large hills. A hole which always has me wanting another try at it is number 8, which is a long par five which for some reason i cannot play well enough to reach in two. Conditions are fair to good, with well kept fairways, and decent greens (Although there can be an abundance of ball marks from lazy players). This course is beginner friendly, and if you are a mid to low handicapper you should score well here.

I would say that it is incorrect to say, as once prior review has, that the back is almost like a long par 3 course, because basicly there is only one hole which is reachable under regulation on the back, and that requires a straight uphill wood or driver onto a small green guarded by a large front bunker. If you are a long hitter, you will hit mostly wedge into the par 4 greens, but saying they can be played like par 3s is a stretch.

I like Hillview. It's got a good length to it. Front 9 is longer then the back 9. Every year they seem to improve the course somehow. The course is very forgiving. Wide fairways. Nicely maintained and generally pretty easy greens. GOOD SAND IN THE BUNKERS. Interesting design. A number of dog legs, short and long. If you're an average golfer, you'll enjoy Hillview

Nice course layout on the front 9

It's one of my favorite front 9 courses but the back 9 has some cool par 3's.I really enjoy the par 3 18th hole as a finishing hole.

Reviewed March 13, 2007

19th hole the best.

Front nine is long enough but needs some conditioning. Back nine is very short and very hilly almost like a long par 3 course. Too expensive for what you get. the restaurant is really good,
