Carlisle Barracks Golf Course is a good, basic golf course for a practice round. It’s very affordable and there are a few challenging holes.

Make sure to ask for the Veteran’s discount. Otherwise, green fees are still very reasonable at $13 for weekdays and $20 for Friday through Sunday.

The course is flat, open and dotted with a few trees. It’s not really scenic, but it gets the job done for what it is. There are 3 tee boxes. The biggest challenge on this course is the long holes. Most of them are 350 yards plus with straight fairways (bring your driver.)

A good score is definitely within reach at Carlisle Barracks golf course. The round starts of with the longer hole #1, sitting at 576 yards from the blue tee. Here’s a few things you’ll want to watch out for on the more difficult holes. Hole #3 (318 yards) is a blind shot that doglegs left and you’ll find two sand traps on the left. Hole #17 (570 yards) doglegs left with a sand trap on the left. You’ll find a large wrap-around greenside bunker on #11 (168 yards.)

A few notes about the condition and amenities. The condition of the course is above average for a public course. The fairways and the greens shouldn’t get in the way of a good score. This is also a great course to walk. There is a pro shop and cart rentals, but no club rentals. There’s a modest clubhouse offering light snacks and beverages. Sit on the porch outside to enjoy the 19th hole. Rounds are limited to 4.5 hours, so the pace of play is good here.

Carlisle Barracks is a good option for a straightforward round of golf. It meets the standard for an average 18 hole public course.

The course is a flat, boringly simple, and unimaginative layout. Good for a fast cheap round for beginners. It's setup for inexpensive maintenance 1st and enjoyment 2nd.

Very fair course with a few challenging holes. Greens were a bit shaggy on the day I played it, but that was most likely to the large amount of rain the area has been recieving lately. Easily walkable course at a great price. Nice bar and porch area.

Course is well maintained and is a great course for a quick nine holes. It is a great walking course and very low cost. You can get a discount for being a Veteran. Just ask at the Pro shop for details.

I certainly agree with the review about being fair...very open though trees can come into play occasionally. Few scenic holes, but mostly back and forth with some nice blue spruce trees here and there. Had my eight year old along and played for a lesser fee than many other courses around. Two Par 5s are over 560 yards and the Par 3s average around 170. There are nicer courses in the area but would golf here again...perhaps in the off-season.

Not great, not bad

I played this course a couple of times recently, and it was very fair. There was nothing incredibly challenging about it, but it was not terribly easy either. There were a few driveable par 4s, and overall it was a good course to score well on. The greens were a little slow and they were pretty flat. If you are looking for a course to score well on, this isn't a bad choice.
