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
