Played here on 7/17/09. Easy to find and get to off of I-81. Newly remodeled clubhouse/restuarant, was very nice. Staff at pro shop extremely cordial. Started a conversation and explained everything that was new or that has changed.

Driving range has a new grass area to hit from. You get a tons of range balls for $5. Very large practice green to tune in short game.

Tee areas could using a little grass mix, but overall pretty nice. From reading previous reviews, must have drastically improved quality of surfaces. Fairways very nice, rough needs a little weed killer, makes finding errant shots interesting. Sand was well maintained. Fringe is about a foot wide. Electric carts. Greens were fast and a few were difficult to read. If you haven't been there in a while, I was told that the front 9 is now the back 9 and vice versa. #17 is a 130 par 3 with over a pond and the green is slightly elevated. Hit the green or in the drink, I liked that.

No cart path after the tee boxes on many holes, so after a lot of rain, I'm guessing it could get chewed up. Errant shots can be found as the long grass looks to be rolled down. Price was about $22 a piece. Rates are reasonable.

Probably going to go there again soon, doesn't seem super busy and seems like a place you can score. For low handicappers, you should be able to score well. Seems like a lot of the landing areas off of the tee have a slight downhill run, making your drives a little longer than normal. A few fairway bunkers could make things interesting if you aren't straight. Most of the greens are protected with bunkers.

No online booking at this time:( but everything is posted on their website. Pretty good value, lack of a ton of people, and less trouble, make it a good course to play. But if you are a big hooker or slicer, take plenty of balls just in case.

fun to play

Played a couple of times.Won't go back. Greens are slow and bumpy. Aprons around the very small greens are only a few inches wide and then you're into 4" of rough...right off the green. Pin placements are miserable and always in the very front, back or corners. Traps have no sand so don't even play them. Not a cheap course. $18 to walk weekdays and $28 to walk on weekends. Pricey and if you're goint to pay those prices, head for a better course. Oh, the people working on the course will not get out of your way. Yell "FORE" and hit the ball.
No restaurant to speak of. Best thing..fairways are short and give good roll. OB on at least 12 holes and plays I think a par 69.

Golf Course is kept in nice condition. If you miss the fairway, the initial rough is pretty thick and the secondary rough is very high grass on rolling mounds. If you don't hit the fairways, it is challenging to score well. The course eats your golf balls in the heavy grass. A high handicapper should take extra balls. Otherwise, the course is not too difficult.

don't know what course they are talking about with sprawling hills, this course is built inside a housing development.....anything over $35 for this course is too much!

As already reviewed...wide open course which forgives mistakes off tee. Conveniently located just off I-81, it's a course worth playing if passing through, but there isn't anything overly enticing to the course. Homes on the back nine are too close for my comfort. Don't like ending with an easy Par 3. Staff was very friendly though! Reminds me a great bit like Majestic Ridge in Chambersburg.

Fun... Yes. Scenic... Ah, No.

Sprawling hills and wide-open stretches that leave lots of room for error. Not an extremely difficult course, but some holes are nevertheless challenging. I didn't think the scenic value of the course was anything special, nor was the overall condition of the course itself exemplory. The bar and food facilities were inviting, comfortable, and above average, and the staff was friendly. I'd play here again, but it wouldn't be my top choice.
