Course Reviews


This course has been overhauled by the new superintendent over the past 4 years.It has been meticulously maintained and manicured.With the removal of several drainage areas,intrusive rocks and hundreds of trees, this course has become a polished gem. It can accommodate all skill levels with 5 raised tees on nearly every hole. All holes are separated by woods on each side which gives you the sense you are the only ones on the course. Being built on the side of a mountain provides spectacular scenic beauty. This has become my favorite course to play in central Pa for the skill level, the beauty, and the well maintained fairways and greens. I usually lose a few balls when I play, but I always come out with more than I lose when I venture into the woods to look for them.
The greens fees are the most inexpensive in the area and the quality of golf is the best.

This course has been recently renamed Skytop Mountain Golf Club. And with this renaming, they have greatly lowered the price, 12/19 dollars walking, everyday (which is a great deal, since most other local courses start weekends to include Fridays), making this course a great deal.

It is a very challenging course because of the random hazards throughout the holes. Many "good" shots will end up lost, and a lot of times its worth abandoning the driver to improve accuracy. However, the course is very pretty, and has been very well kept. No brown spots or anything in the greens, and it generally is not very crowded, so it's easy to get 9 holes in. My last round of 9 took about 1 1/2 hours.

The practice facilities are also nice. Grass driving range, and also a 60 yard "practice" hole for working on short game, along with a large practice green.

Finally, the people here are really nice. I've really enjoyed the rounds I've played here. I would recommend it, especially if you can't afford to play PSU blue/Toftrees.

I was in town for the Penn State Game and had a chance to try out Freestone for the first time Sunday. When I pulled in I could tell it was not a country club setting, but the customer service I received you would have thought it was. A young lady was there with a cart before I even got out of my car, to see if I needed a cart. The price was very reasonable. I paid $35 for 18 and a cart and I was astonished when they told me my 15 year old son was only $1.

The course was very scenic. Greens and fairways were in good shape, but not top notch. For the price I paid I wasn't complaining.

The best thing about Freestone, it felt like we had the course to ourselves because each hole is so isolated from the other. That's the biggest difference I found from the other courses I've played when I come to town. I didn't feel rushed or crowded one time.

I would recommend Freestone to anyone looking for a budget friendly golf course in good condition.

I can't wait to come back in the fall and play. The views of the Fall foliage must be terrific.

Would never play this course again hit 2 balls out of the center of the fairway and hit 2 rocks just under the turf... They also charge as much as the good courses and they not up to par at all.. on the score cards they don't even list the slope and rating what does that tell you about the course. i have played alot of courses in my 27 years of golfing an this is the worst course i have ever play.. dont waste your time or money

Came here expecting a so-so round of golf...didn't realize that the back nine opened recently (in May). Though the new holes aren't quite "up to par", the scenery and layout more than made up for any maintenance problems. The established front nine featured something unique with each hole. The Par 5 2nd hole is a little gimmicy with too much waste area to deal with, but was fun anyway. There is a lot of ditches near the greens with rocks lining the gully...balls could go anywhere. Not many sand bunkers...numerous deep bunkers with long grass (worse than sand). Five sets of tees allowed for many choices on how to play each hole. Loved the challenge and really liked the views of distant mountains on the back nine. Both 13 and 14 feature beautiful views from the greens. The best holes (IMHO)are the par 3 16th with a drastic downhill tee-shot with nothing behind the green but a view of the next mountain, and the 18th hole tee-shot with similar views. This is a course with wonderful potential...get out and play it now while it is still quite affordable. If this place gets discovered and played...the prices will surely go up! Absolutely a great golfing experience!

THIS COURSE IS VERY HARD FOR SOMEONE WHO HITS BALL ALL OVER PLACE. BUT AFTER PLAYING IT YOU WELL FIND OTHER COURSES MUCH MORE SIMPLE TO PLAY. WHAT I LIKE ABOUT COURSE IS THAT YOU HAVE FIVE DIFFERENT TEE BOXES TO CHOOSE FROM, SO YOU CAN PICK ONE THAT MATCHES YOUR ABILITY. IF YOU MISS HIT YOUR BALL IT IS GONE, AFTER ALL IT ON A MOUNTION. PLAYING THIS COUSE IN LATE FALL I WAS ABLE TO PLAY ON 15,16,17 AND 18 OTHER BACK 9 NOT OPEN TILL SPRING 09.

Very nice layout. The use of natural hazards makes it a course you have to think your way around. The fairways are generous but your ball is gone if you miss them. Course was in great condition. I will definately be back. Can't wait until the back nine opens.

I took my 8 yr old son to play here the special was unbelieveable my greens fee +$1 awesome.I played this course last year fairways hard, greens even harder.Full wedge hit front of green rolled off back.But this year we played ,greens were good fairways too .Bunkers great shape.The 2nd hole was a great par 5 the pro gave me some advice aim toward the rock and hit it 260 yds. Holes 7,8 have little water runoffs running across the fairway so choose your club wisely ,They have a map to tell you exactly how far.Overall this course is not great but very nice 9 hole course that my son and I will play as long as they have this special. Back nine will open in July.
