Reviewed April 16, 2008

Crystal Mountain has been gradually redoing the Betsy Valley Course and has turned an ordinary gimicky golf course into a real gem. This is a tight course with small greens that require excellent shotmaking. No. 10 from the blues is a real test which plays 50 yards longer than the card according to my rangefinder. Several holes are new including the 15th which is an outstanding par 4. The greens are tough to putt because of some severe slopes.The Betsy is cheaper than Crystal's other course but is just as challenging and in as good shape. Twilight rates are great and start as early as 3:00 in the summer. There is also a great bar/restaurant right in the castle-like clubhouse.
