Very reasonable rate and the course was in pretty good shape for the location of the course since it is right next to a farm. A great place to go and have some fun with the family and the owner IS VERY NICE.

2012 has brought some much needed work to Perry Golf Course. The overall appearance is being improved daily and course conditions are improving as well. Management is making a valiant effort to improve the course and given some time, I think Perry Golf Course will be back on the map. I recommend playing there this season given the convenient location and reasonable rates. If the improvements continue, I think Perry will be one of the better courses to play.

If you like eccentric courses, this one will do. All comments are from the back tees. 1,5, and 13 are real golf holes. 5 slopes right and has a broad fairway to the right but the tee box and green are to the left. The shot in is uphill to a green that is not at all forgiving. On 13 you have to hit uphill and to the right just to get into the first dogleg. Then you need a long and well-placed long iron down the right side into the second dogleg to have a chance of a clear view of the green. If you have any doubt, lay up rather than take a chance of going to either side or over--the shots back are monstrous. 1 is just long, but I suggest a bump-and-run into the green.

The par threes are challenging for an average golfer. 7 is unforgiving to the right. 11 plays much longer than the distance since it is uphill. 15 is almost always into a nasty wind. 18 is another uphill shot and that into a difficult green.

Probably half of the greens can only be held if you are coming from the front. 6, 10, 12, 13, 14 are particularly bad. Miss the 18th on either side or the back and you will add two shots to your score.

The course is never in good shape, although it is better now than in the past.

The rough is not high, but it is absolutely unforgiving. Balls are lost in three inch rough regularly.

I like it, but it had to grow on me first. And, lord, it is an ugly course.

Oh, yes, given the eccentricities of this course, you will use all your clubs.

With Perry you never quite know what you are going to get. as the course conditions are largely dependent on the past month's weather. the mechanical condition of their equipment, and the behavior of the local groundhog and geese populations. Have a dry summer and it can be hard pan alley. With a couple of weeks of heavy rain you're hacking out of high grass and navigating the cart through marsh conditions.
That being said, if the weather has been good and the mowers are working, Perry can be a pretty nice place to play. Like right now. The greens are in very good condition. The best in years. No geese damage on 7 or groundhog holes on 14. Fairways have a bit of clover, but are as good as they ever get. The rough is pretty high, but I guess it's supposed to be.
Built on farmland, the layout is wide open on most holes. But the greens are small and tough to hit. It can be a decent test of your golf skills. Better to be short than long on most holes. Not much sand or water. The par 5 number one can be a long, tough, start, and thirteen is a nasty par 5 any way you look at it. The par threes are longer than many courses in the area. By the end of the day you won't be bowled over by the scenery, but you will have hit most of the clubs in your bag.
It's rarely crowded, which is always a big plus in my book, and the people who run it are nice. Rates are reasonable for the off peak times I play.
Hear it may be sold at the end of the season and converted to a sports complex. If so, I will really miss the place. It gets under your skin after a while. Many an enjoyable day spent at Perry with my Dad, sons, and friends over the past 25 years.

Absolutely horribly maintained. Fairways and rough not cut, sand traps overgrown with weeds. A brutal experience and one that is not cheap for this area. Worst course I have played in 20 years.

On hole #14 there was groundhog holes in the green, i was so upset with this situation. The greens were all hacked up from very poor Maintenance. The price was not reflected in the course at all!
