Pros: Novice golfer, just started playing this summer, so, it's hard for me to sort of gauge the quality of the course in terms of layout relative to other courses. Overall though, I enjoyed the layout, the fairways, greens, etc. Thankfully, not very hilly at all, pretty flat and pretty forgiving fairways, meaning they were pretty prescient and straightforward. Plethora of trees throughout, which made things challenging. Great value course!

Cons: Fall season, so, there was a lot of foliage on the course. Seems like the course could of been a little bit better maintained. They can certainly use some better tee markers and better signage throughout the course. Also, the staff seemed kind of nonchalant. The starter was no where to be found and when he finally showed up, he just handed me a golf cart and walked away. Didn't help me with my golf bag, didn't give me a scorecard, didn't direct me to first tee, etc. Also, no real big deal, but, there was a golfer wearing jeans, which I thought was a little odd that they would permit that.

Overall, it's a great value golf course which offers exciting game play.

My cousin Bob and I played the course on 03/09/09, just before the official season began. Please take that into account when considering my review. We drove down from the Binghamton area to take advantage of the 50+ temps. We arrived around noon and found the course empty. It had rained pretty hard the night before and the course was "walking only", so we rented push carts. They have a nice senior rate, which my cousin was able to take advantage of (I've got about another 25 years to qualify). Considering the amount of rain they got, the course wasn't soggy, so drainage appears ok. The layout is competent and straight-forward. None of the holes seem jammed in or out of place. The fairways are narrow in spots, and wild tee shots can get you into trouble. We were fortunate in that our bad shots almost always bounced back into play. When they didn't, we often had a shot, or an easy pitch back out to the fairway. The greens held up surprisingly well considering the winter we've had. You can tell that they're really nice in prime season. The bunkers were hard packed and full of stick/debris, but that wasn't totally unexpected. There are a couple little water hazards on the back 9 that are out of sight off the tee. Check your g.p.s. or hole diagram carefully. The "pro-shop" was quaint and had some nice items for sale. We didn't have time to check out the grille. All in all, we had a really nice time at Green Pond and would consider a re-play if we find ourselves in the area again.

Nice course, not great though. I went on the weekend and found it to be too expensive for what it was (if you can believe that). Conditions are excellent but greens seem to have been played too much this year -- it's obviously a popular course. There's just a lot of ball marks that seem to have gone unrepaired -- I probably repaired 5-10 per green myself. Food is decent, layout is average, there really isn't any scenery. Fairways are great, rough was a little burned out in places. Overall, a good course but I would play Riverview, White Tail or Southmoore all over this place and the price really isn't any different.

Also, one guy on here said this was a links style course. It's not. There's tons of trees everywhere.

Green Pond offers a links style type play with numerous adjacent holes that are tree-lined. Very few opportunities to lose balls here. Fairways are of average width....and fairly flat....and many straight ahead holes. This course is a test of your ability to score on par 4's. Greens here are excellent, and fast.

This course tends to be in fabulous shape early in the season and late...not that it's bad in the dog-days of summer.
