If you are a par will enjoy the challenge here. If you can handle bogeys, you will enjoy your round also. This is a win/win place...nice rolling hills, a few undulating greens (especially on the back nine), and a wonderful setting for golf. This course has link style golf mixed in with some woods golf...a nice mixture of changing scenery. It is my understanding that this is within PA's top 20 must play courses according to one of the golfing magazines (I think #13)...certainly worth a play! The Par 3 12th hole is worth the price just to play as you hit atop a hill into a protected little hollow filled with water and trees (and some flowering stuff also). Enjoy!

I really enjoyed the layout of this course, very scenic, and several holes were layed out perfectly. Great variety in the layout. The course had just been aerated, so the greens were sandy, and the fairways were hairy, but other than that it was a great day of golf. The course is much harder than it looks, though, because the greens add a good bit of difficulty. They are narrow and crowned.

this challenging and scenic gem is oriented more towards the low to mid-handicapper, despite it's open links appearance. gulleys off the fairway, uneven lies even on the fairway, undulating, quick greens, plenty of bunkers, mounds, easily offset the lack of tree-lined boundaries.
Most holes have their treacherous propensity for folly. Some of the notables: hole no. 2, a pulled shot results in a severe sidehill or worse at the bottom of the ravine, with little hope of landing on a narrow plateau of a green. no. 3 is downhill spotting a creek in the middle forcing a 5 wood shot; a right side placement that is within 30 yds of the creek denies the golfer a full shot at a plateaued green, because of a large tree hovering across the creek on the right side of the fairway. no. 5 has an uphill climb to a green, fronted with traps. no. 6 is a neat risk/reward par 5-if you power your drive out 250+ on the fairway, you have a chance at reaching the green in two, if you dare to hit a solid 3 or 5 wood across a large pond on the right. no. 7 is probably one of the most treacherous and narrowest greens on the course, that requires a pinpoint shot to par on a 2-tiered plateaued green. numbers 11 thru 13 are justifiably considered amen 11 is a steep uphill par 4 approach shot. the green is about as steep as the fairway slope. take 2 extra club length for your shot. any shots above the pin are 3 to 4 putts guaranteed. no. 12 par 3 is a gorgeous isolated hole, fronted by water and a stone dam, that is unbeatable in splendor and nature's habitat. It's about 160 from the white, and and to miss it's dance floor from front left to back, is drop time. no. 13, a short par 4 requires a straight drive. left is a ravine or forest, right is large mounds. another plateau green awaits, with a 2-tier undulation, and narrow sides. no 14 is a golfers bailout hole, for those seeking "tarp" funds(troubled aiming resolve pressure) a long par 5, which has a long trap that captures all fades and slices. then the green has railway ties along the right side where a 20ft drop into brush menaces those with pull or hook tendencies for their 3rd shot. again another narrowly sided green. bailing out to the right works as their is a bank to reflect shots hopefully down the slope near or on the green. no. 14 green has a 4 foot bank in the middle, fortunately most pin placements are in the front half; don't be unfortunate to play before a tourney, or you're looking at a sinister, and unfair design. They should cut this slope in half at least. no. 18 is a great risk/reward finishing hole, we all need to recover some poor decisions or executions during the round. It's a 422yd par 5. with a fairway gaunlet replete with a large pond along the left side, having only 10 or less feet of space with the fairway, and mounds, traps, and gulley along the right side. then you decide if you have the moxie to sail your shot over a stream and a pond bordering the green. hit long places your ball in a swale, but better then davey jones locker for the short approaches.
overall straight hitters can score low, if their putting is solid. the course is very well maintained, greens hold approach shots, sand traps are manicured, the staff is very friendly and accomodating. this is one of the topnotch and hardest courses in the area. It presents beautiful vistas of the Lancaster countryside, and tee times are spread at 10 minutes, allowing reasonable separation between groups. The beauty is in the course, the clubhouse is functional, and the fees reflect it,as golfers aren't disproportionately underwriting the building mortgage.

Course was in great condition, and mixed layout was great. No two holes were the same. Would highly recommend you play this course.

Excellent course

Excellent overall course. Very scenic. Hole 8 and 12 are two of the prettiest par threes you will find anywhere. Definately one of my favorite courses.
