Ok course, old layout made for easy maintenance. Over priced considering you can play a number of better courses in Cumberland county for the same price. Personnel's attitude is not helping them bring in new customers, or retain repeat business. Why go there, really?

If you happen to be passing through or want to play a local course it's not bad. If not, nothing I would go out of my way for. Course is very poorly managed as far as starter, time management goes. Several singles, followed by two somes and 4 somes which equals long wait times on each hole. Not a place I would visit again.

Got to play Cumberland with a friend on a Wednesday 9/2. Price was very reasonable ($23) to ride. I thought the course itself was interesting, I liked it. Unlike the previous entries, the staff was pleasant. They told us we would have to stop play at 5PM due to a league. Tee boxes were okay, they could use a container of mix for everyone to fill in their divots, but overall, nice and level. Greens were just aerated, but were still playable. The greens in general had some tilt, thus putting was interesting. Pin placement in the front made it very challenging and fun.

The course opens with 4 relatively easy holes, of course, a hacker like myself found the tree lines and made them tough. #8 has a little water for an errant 2nd shot. #9 is a nice hole. You tee off over water which you can't see and the hole is downhill. At 440, it is a tough par 4.

Just like the front 9, the back 9 starts with 4 reality easy holes, then 5 more challenging ones. #10 and #11 are both 500 yard par 5s, #13 is a 192 yard par 3. The wind blows slightly left to right, and the sand trap on the right looks like a lot of people other than me found it as well. #16 is a cool dogleg left. If you can play a draw, you have an outside shot of rolling on the green. I chose to play an iron off the tee since I watched the group in front of use try to go over the trees and they are just too thick. #17 and #18 super tough. #17 is uphill 450 yards. Fortunately, I played 4 good shots in a row and parred the hole, but getting a ball to stick on the green is tough, since it slopes toward the tee box. My partner putted just past the hole and what we thought was going to be an easy 5 footer, turned into a 20 footer. Very fun hole. You finish up with a chance to hit the water if you are wild left.

Overall, I liked Cumberland. By the looks of the size of the league, it is played frequently. The price is right, probably could be a little nicer, but fairways were nice, trees are mature. A little tough to judge distances, but I was very pleased. Have an outing with a larger group this weekend, should be enjoyable. I look forward to playing there again. Only about 5 minutes off of the Plainfield exit of I81.

I have played a lot of courses in the central Pa. area and this is my favorite course to play. The course is fair, yet challenging and it is always kept in great shape. The people that work there are always kind as well. I would recommend this course to anyone.

If you are thinking of going to Cumberland, do yourself a favor and stay home and watch TV. The course is OK, not great, but OK. Th problem is the Mowery family who own and operate the course. They and their employees are a bunch of rude, discourteous, arrogant, pompous twits who act as if they are doing you the favor by allowing you to spend your money there.
These people do not deserve any support until they learn that they are in business for the convenience and satisfaction of their customers, not themselves.
I wanted to book tee times for a group of 16-20 golfers and was treated horribly. Needless to say, we played elsewhere and will never return. Not only did they throw away the revenue from that outing but they lost a lot more as each of us will do our very best to convince out friends and fellow golfers to avoid Cumberland.

This is probably the best course in the area for the money. Very friendly staff, well maintained, great layout, and very fun course to play. I live in Carlisle where there are 5 courses real close - and this is the one I would choose.

There's nothing that sticks out about this golf course. It's a fair course, open, slow greens, crusty traps, long at times, but fun. I disliked that the shortest Par 3 was 190 yards. The course is a scorer's course, nothing challenging. Water comes into play on only 4 holes...but you have to be really off target to find the water. Staff was very friendly to me and I paid $15 to walk 18 with the pull cart thrown in for free...on a weekday in August. Not too shabby! I liked the lay-out...keeps the pace moving because hackers won't find many lies in the woods. Holes 17 and 18 are long Par 4s, one 440 and the other 450. It's a course worth playing if in the area!

This course has the potential to be great, but the maintenace is substandard. Our group was paid an insult by the owner of the course during the round and at the turn. I will not be back for a while.
