The Kresson Golf Course has an interesting, scenic layout, but the lack of TLC is a reason for serious golfers to be turned off from playing there.

The 18-hole executive course is a par-68 over 4,800 yards (par-70 for women). Since Kresson is shorter than a traditional course, it is easy to play in under three hours. While most of the holes are short, there are a few that will challenge your distance. All the longer holes are on the front nine, so if distance is your weakness, rest assured that the back nine is much shorter. The third hole is 480 yards, the seventh hole is 500 yards and the ninth hole is 485 yards.

The majority of the holes on the course are under 300 yards and there are some fun challenges, including tee shots over water and several interesting doglegs. Unfortunately, the upkeep of the course takes away from its playability. The tee boxes are quite beat up, the fairways are full of crabgrass and the greens have many bald spots. Some weeks are worse than others, but at times the course looks pretty run down.

Play Kresson on the weekends for about $30 per round, a fair greens fee for the area. Fortunately, the course is easy and enjoyable to walk because the use of an electric cart will cost an additional $25. Pull carts are also available.

The Kresson Golf Course is worth checking out at least once, but be prepared to deal with less-than-ideal conditions.

There isn't much to cover in this review that hasn't already been mentioned, but I will say that although most reviews haven't been flattering, they have been more kind than really they have had to be. Kresson is a course for beginners, but does that mean it HAS TO BE poorly maintained too?? The maintainance is terrible. The crabgrass and regular grass on fairways still exists. The tee boxes are the worst I have ever played, just dirt and there is nothing to distinguish fairway from rough. Almost any other course you will play around this area has a better bang for your buck. $20 to walk weekend twilight sounds appealing, but not for this course. Even Beckett might have better maintainance. As many reviews have stated, people play here for only two reasons. First, it's a course where some learned how to play and for that still has some sort of appeal to play again. The other is the scenery and course layout is cool with the uniqueness of holes being by far its strongest attribute. Several holes are over water, or nice doglegs which makes them fun to play. This course could be a hidden gem if it was taken care of. But by the consistency of reviews over the years combined with the accuracy of them from what I witnessed today this course can not be viewed as anything more than a beginner course and or a course to play in early March to shake off the rust. It's ashame because, albeit, a short course it could be a fun little mainstay. The management really should be embarassed. They don't have logo balls either which stinks for a collector like myself. Oh and bring your own water or better yet go somewhere else until they fix what could be a nice executive course. Overall rating C.

OK--First of all..when it comes to Kresson it is really a locals only golf course. By this I mean that if you are coming in from out of town do NOT play it! I was taught how to golf on this course because it is short and easy to walk. Once you have any ability to hit a golf ball you don't play here anymore..well not unless you just go there to have fun and mess around. I usually play there once every two or so years and that's only because it was the first course i ever played. There are probably three par 3's in a row on the front 9..one is about 40 yds. You drive just about every par 4 and that includes your 5 iron to your driver. The cost..way overpriced!!!

grounds..let's see not only are the tee boxes nowhere close to being level but you're lucky if there is grass on it.

Now the good part :) The course does offer some holes that make you work your shots. a couple fun doglegs while they may be short you can have fun with them. the has some narrow spots so if you can't hit your ball straight you will be dropping and hitting 3 more time then you would like (assuming you're a true golfer). I'm a relatively low handicap (6-9) and I shot 6 under one day and that was messing around and not really trying. Some of the greens are pretty small and similar to putting in your house!

if you play there don't expect to be playing a "true" golf course..go there and expect to have fun and that's about it..go with low expectations and you'll love it. :)
