Course Reviews


Incredibly nice people, excellent service. Course was in great condition, speed of play was perfect for the amount of people that were on the course.

Course was in fabulous shape from tee to green. rough cut to a fair length. scenery is amazing with the rolling hills all around you. Several blind shots so it helps to play it again. I speak from experience. 2nd time around scored much better. great twilight value ($21). No complaints at all. Would highly reccomend this course

Pretty good course friends and I took it on while camping Memorial Day weekend. No problem with slow play and fairways wee in good shape as well as the putting surface rolled true. The only problem I have with this course was that the rough even though not very thick caught your club everytime until you were forced to tighten you grip almost to a strangle hold or it would turn your club face open either pulling the ball to the right immediately or seriously shortening each iron. The starter was a very friendly guy who we spoke to for a few minutes after the round. Had a snack shack at the turn but no other place on the course to really get anything to drink which was not good since it was in the 90's. Overall I think this course was tough but fair, one note though watch the par 3 if you miss the greens and have a chip shot to the green you will be chipping out of some of the thickest nastiest stuff I have ever saw.

Good Value, Good test

Our group of travelling seniors plays this course four or five times a year, most recently 6-12-07. Course layout is as Greg describes below, although I find the back nine MUCH tougher than the front. #11 is the #1 handicap, and a par here is a very rare bird. Similarly, #15 is a toughie, and #18 is no pushover. Fairways are generally wide enough for us hackers, and the rough is not too punishing. There is some OB close aboard some fairways, but it can be avoided with reasonable care. A fair amount of water, but most does not come into play if you hit the ball fairly straight. We paid $27 with the Tee Time book, and that is a very fair price for this nice layout. Conditions on 6-12=07: Tee boxes were in decent shape, although many of them are far from level, which management should fix; fairways were in very nice shape; greens were in excellent condition, putted true and moderately fast; bunkers were so-so, most were very hard, and had not been raked. Amenities are very limited: no snack bar at all, just a small trailer outside the old farmhouse (which was reportedly standing during the Civil war). Staff is excellent: Diane works the pro shop, and is a jewel, friendly, funny, and welcoming. The starter was very good, low key, informative, and kept things moving. Did not see a ranger. We like the course, and will be back...hope to see you there//Bob

I was surprised to see that this "resort" course has yet to be rated. "Resort" in the fact that it is owned by the Carroll Valley Resort a few miles south. I visited in late November, so of course conditions aren't the same as say...May. I really liked the old club house since it was obviously an old home at one point. The staff was very friendly. The front nine is laid out in the open. The fairways were well cut for this time of the year and the rough was managable. Not being a long-ball hitter, I stayed away from the many traps and only found two all day. So the course did not play as challenging as perhaps it would for a stronger golfer. The back nine (which is supposed to be a little more challenging) visited some wooded terrain, and I enjoyed some of the rock formations, but for the price, the course just wasn't that scenic. Holes 10-12 are probably the most difficult (and prettiest). I guess that was my "beef" with this course...for the price, I expected a more scenic experience. The "playing" was fine, but for the price, I expected more. There are many courses in this area far less cheap yet as fun to play. Sure there are mountain views...but not any more pleasant than other courses in the area. A nice course to visit, but I don't plan on making it a habit...not a great value for what else is around.
