The course was in pretty good shape especially since we have had the rainiest summer in a long time. All of the courses nearby have suffered some more then others. The greens were in great shape and relatively fast. There are a few holes that seem a bit unfair as you don't have a safe play to hit the fairway but that being said it is a links course and should be a harder course to play. There is a very scenic view on the front nine where you can see South Mountain in the background. Due to all of the rain it was cart path only and I ended up walking 5 miles, of course as we all experience I was never close to the cart path (lol). I got a great deal through GolfLink and would recommend all golfers to experience this course. Quite a golf challenge.

A lot of courses have suffered during the hot stretches this summer. Gettysburg seems to have weathered the storm pretty well, it was in pretty good shape when I played it (7/25/10). Weekend afternoon rate ($47 at 2pm) makes it a pretty good value IMO. I like the layout, except I feel like 13 and 14 are a little unfair off the tee - I'd prefer to be able to choose a side of the fairway to miss on, and on those two you don't have any safe play at all.

Played this course in the end of August. With all of the hype this course recieves I was completely let down with the reality. While the course was pretty difficult I found the condition of this "premier" course left a lot to be desired. Divots every where unrepaired by either the golfers or ground crew and the greens had so many ball marks it looked like they had measles. The layout wasn't very pleasing to me. I often was wondering if I was heading in the right direction as I headed from the last tee. The scenery while nice was not any better than many of the other courses in the area. While I would say anyone should give this course a play once for this golfer there are many other courses which are just as good or better in the area for less.

The entire aura about this place is a sense of glamour. After getting over the emencity of this place, it starts to settle in on you and then you discover that this really isn't any different than any other upscale golf course. At first I was wide eyed over the set-up, but soon found the red rock work overdone. The huge brick wall you see on the back nine...what's the purpose? Bricked tee boxes...I'd rather cut the fees down and have a little less special effects. No's a good play here...challenging but normal for a links course. I found the first two holes (both dog-legs) to be difficult. The first red cliffs you see are behind the Par 3 3rd hole. The next hole that stands out is the tee-shot from the Par 5 7th hole, the most difficult hole on the course. You must drive between ponds. The red rock cliffs dominate the short Par 4 8th. As you approach the last seven holes, water can come into play if mis-hits are in your game. I am an 18 handicapped golfer and lost only one ball. Greens on my round were very fast. What summed up the "airyness" of this place was while teeing off on the 17th, two workers were watering the fairway. When I approached my ball, my stance would have to be in a huge puddle. When asked if they were attempting to create a new wetland, they responded that they had some brown grass on the fairway. So balls plug in the fairway instead of a few blades of brown grass? Attitude. The course is an absolute must play...once...then you decide!

Great course but bring your scuba gear for the back nine. Great layout and very challanging yet every hole is fair. A must visit for anyone in the area. PS Watch out for Number 7

Definitely upscale, well maintained and challenging golf course with numerous scenic vista holes. You will come away with a feeling of respect, simultaneous frustration and satisfaction, and memories of " I shoulda, I coulda, and why didn't I" which will haunt you long after the round. To quote General Douglas McArthur: " I SHALL RETURN."

A Beautiful Golf Course

I have recently played this course, and I must say I was very impressed. It was one of the most beautiful courses I have ever played. The rates are very high, but I believe this course must be tried at least once. There are many holes that really challenge every part of the game. Tough driving holes, some difficult approach shots, and some of the greens are almost impossible. It is a course that must not be missed.

Not a bad course, however- the most overrated and overpriced course in the area

The greens have always been slow and are not the truest of surfaces. For the price you pay to play here, you may easily be disappointed.

Best public course I have EVER played

Worth the drive from anywhere. This is the best public course I have EVER played. It's got everything you would want in a round of golf. Scenic holes, challenging holes, interesting layout, and pristine conditions. This place is worth whatever they are charging you. Well, ok, I wouldn't pay more then $100 here, but even at that it's one of the few places I would pay that much for. A wonderful golfing experience not to be missed.
