Wow, weclcome to the north. I have been in this business a long time. I am currently a teacher pofessional and an old touring pro, so I have been around a while. The staff at this course were so rude and unwelcoming. Snooty as one review put it. Aren't these people aware that they are in the hospitality industry. I went in to get some general info about membership, but I don't think this is the place for me. I hope the head pro knows his staff just cost him a member. Won't be back and will let others know.

I looked forward to playing this course; however, when I returned to the North Country I was shocked. This course has turned into an "anti-military" course if you will. The staff are extremely snooty and ill mannered. They do not appear to support the military personnel at all who bring a lot to the north country. The food is not what it was three years ago and the course maintanence has declined over the last couple of years. I will not be back to visit this course. What a shame.

I played in a work sponsered tourny. The greens are large but dry. The course is pretty open. They did just add new sand in the traps which is nice. The fairways were not watered and are burnt. The annual membership is $1400 ($45 a round for non members)and is way over priced as far as the course goes. The food in the clubhouse is good but expensive. All and all it's not worth the money.

Paid too much to golf-paid too mych to eat! This course is OVERRATED!!! What was the critic thinking when he gave the restaurant 4 1/2 forks? Was he paid off? The service was a joke! We didn't have silverware, we never saw our waitress after the meal was served and we were appauled at how she kept running her fingers through her hair-YUCK!! This place needs some decorations and a good manager to train these girls! Very pricey-won't be back!

Overpriced, $40 to walk 18. Had a 6some in front of me for 15 holes. No one is ever at the concession stand at the turn. Unfriendly.

Nice Course

The greens are large with the possibility for long putts. The price states $24-36, I paid $54 for being a non-member. The website should state the difference between member and non-member green fees. Very small pro shop. The food didn't appear to be anything great.
