Course Reviews


Course was in great shape, well maintained, fairway were open second cut was easy to find ball. The greens and fringes were in excellent shape. Will definitely play again

I use to like this course. But the flowers in the rough help to lose a ball five feet off the fairway. No Golf Ranger causes HUGE backups. There is no way it should take six hours to play a round on a Friday afternoon.

Pretty decent little place to go located a few miles off of route 15. Overall, I enjoyed my experience here. Greens were fairly decent. Lots of rain during the last few weeks, but this course was dry already and on a few fairways, pretty hard. So, it was nice to get a nice roll off the tee, but sometimes it rolled off the good stuff.

Make sure you hit a few balls at the range before you start as #1 is a par 5. #15 is a super tough hole, you have to lay up, despite the urge to try to crank one. All in all, I think if you would play there a day or two after a rain, it would play great.

Staff was very friendly and gave us a weather update. Very scenic course. Water comes in play on only the most errant tee shots. Fringe is very low, allowing for putting if you just missed the green. My friend has said that they have allowed some of the grass to grow links style around the course. It is extremely thick and you can't find anything in it so beware. Decent price, not many people for a Friday afternoon. Definitely worth a stop, I'll be playing there again.

Just on thing I'd like to humbly ask the grouds crew if I may: PULL UP THE $%^#$% MUSHROOMS!! I played Flatbush yesterday and every time my ball strayed a little off course, the conversation would go a little like this:
Waldo: There it is.
Playing Partner: No, that's a mushroom.
W: There it is.
PP: No. Mushroom.
W: Over there.
PP: Uh uh. Mushroom.
W: How about...?
PP: Mushroom.
W: There's another mushroom.
PP: No, I think that's your ball...No. Mushroom.

fairways not very nice not a lot of grass,greens not well maintained,nice layout and could be nice to play if they get some rain.priced right

Course is better than eariler in the year. Greens are well maintained and receive the ball well. Mostly wide open fairways and greens that are not to difficult. The price is right at right around thirty dollars for a weekend round and just under twenty for nine after work.

Not easy to find. No sign on the main road.Tap room staff very friendly.Course in good condition considering the dried out fairways. Not overwhelming from forward tees. Porta John in bad condition,needed cleaning. Tee Time Pass made the round bearable ($17 on a Sun after 1:00)

If you like to "let out the shaft" you will have plenty of opportunities unless you are a right turn slicer or hooker. Course is a good value for the money and the staff is "cordial". If you like to play in the afternoon BE SURE you ask what time the carts have to be back in. When we played, on the 14th hole at 6:45pm, we were asked to bring in the carts by 7:00 p.m.........when it didn't get dark til after 8pm. they said there was a sign posted on the door (which we didn't see). It would have been nice if we had been forwarned when paying at the counter, or by any member of the staff before starting our round.

With severe drought conditions the course played rocket fast -- many tee shots rolled 30-40 yards beyond my average. The greens and approaches were very good and healthy, however. Great care, there. This is an interesting layout with plenty of room for the wilder hitters on most holes but just watchout for out-of-bounds off the tee on few holes. Visually some nice par 3s. Number 14 might be the toughest hole on the course with woods hard left and the fairway sloped that way, too. I'll play it again after cooler, wetter conditions return.

Played here on 6/23/07. Rough severely burned out already, and is very sparse. Was hitting off dirt a couple of times. The fairways, however, were reasonable. The greens were small, but fair; Pretty slow, maybe an 8.5 stimp. Some new sand in the traps, not very consistant.

Very relaxing pace, nice scenery, some challenging holes. Staff very courteous and friendly. Cute little blond barmaid....that always helps. Enjoyed myself, would do it again.

This is great central Pennsylvania golf...pretty straight forward, not a real test, but fun to play. Lots of room for error off the tee, but plenty of bunkers (a little compacted as prior reviewed) around the greens. Although conditions are getting dry, the fairways and greens were still in great shape (6-12-07). Beautiful landscaping around some of the tees also. The back nine is considerably shorter and played a bit easier. This was an enjoyable experience! Make a day of both Flatbush and Quail Valley!

Nice

Forgiving, affordable, very nice staff. Straightforward design, but three or four TOUGH holes (8, 9, 15 for sure). Played here 4-18-07: fairways were soggy from recent rain, bunkers very compacted, greens were lumpy, bumpy, and patchy. Will need to improve a lot, and soon, to survive the summer. But the price is right, and the 19th hole is cordial, with a friendly staff. Try it!

Nice Course

It's a nice course. Reasonably challenging. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The surrounding make for a nice relaxing round of golf. I will definitly be going there again.

Good, fun, friendly course

Course is not terribly difficult as its very forgiving of errant shots. Its also very well maintained for the traffic it gets and even though fairways are hard, not many brown outs. The staff is what makes this place! They are very friendly and maintain "behavior" and pace of play on the course. Try the Redneck scramble on Sunday - its worth it.
