Play this course often as it is close to home. Some of the low ratings are ridiculous as while this is a pricey course it is clearly better than any public courses in the area. If this course deserved the low ratings some gave, try calling to book a tee time as unless you call days in advance it can be hard to get a tee time. This is a great course.

Played this course yesterday and found it in average condition. The greens were fast but the fairways were not in good shape for the high green fees they are charging. I will not return anytime soon.

People in the pro shop were rude and obnoxious. Bunkers were not playable. 13 out of 18 pin placements were within 5 paces of the edge of the green. Clearly done on purpose to save the fat part of the green. It was $52 to walk during the week. Not worth it at all. I played here a few times years ago and it just isn't the same.

This course is one of the best public courses in the area .The course does not beat you up .It is fair with some difficulty ,The staff is excellent and the pace of play is fine ..I travel 45 minutes and will continue to do so because of the value

I've played the course many times since it opened and it seems the maintenance and condition of the course has deteriorated somewhat this year. They hired a new management company last year and it seems the condition isn't the same. The fairways are very thin with lots of unrepaired divot marks. The rough is very "rough" and uneven....lots of dirt spots. The bunkers are inundated with black pebbles. And the greens appear to have more of an unrepaired ball mark problem this year. The grass part of the driving range is not in the best of shape and is only available on weekends....mats during the week. This time of year courses in this area are usually at their best before the hot July/August heat but MH's condition right now is well below par.

Great course with chipping and putting green\driving range but easy becuase of the link style there are no things that block your shot

This is a nice course. It is visually pleasing. There are houses on some of the holes but they are not part of the course, and are set back behind some trees. It turned out to be more challenging than I thought. Greens were hard. The only gripe I had was that there were basically three or four sets of side-by-side holes that were three deep. Overall, a very nice course and certainly on par or better than the nicer public courses out in Limerick (Bella, Turtle Creek), as well as Paxon Hollow and Rock Manor. Well worth the 45 minute drive.

The layout is great with great views. The greens are very large so double check the pin placement, and shoot at the stick or you could have a putt from another zip code. The pricing is definitely a little steep, but it is worth a round there. I would certainly recommend this course.

A nice course to spend the day, but it will lighten your wallet in a big way. The Staff was Friendly and they are concerned with pace of play. There was a group ahead of us that they made skip a hole to pick up play. There are no lockers so you have to think twice about cleaning up after a round. The proshop was nicely stocked as was the bar, the Rest had a good selection of food, and on the 9th tee, you can call in an order. Ground maint. could use some work. Overall, though, a good round, even if it was a little pricey.

Definitely very heavy off your wallet, but the course is definitely a must play. Twilight rates are comparable to others, especially on the weekdays, and since it starts at 3 pm it gives you enough time to enjoy the whole course. The course has some pretty difficult holes, and some challenging par 4's and 5's, so it will definitely test your patience. One bummer though is that there is no locker room in the facility which makes it a bummer, especially since I can't play an early round and shower to go to work.

The course is new and not yet mature...give it time. It costs too much for what it is.

Great Course Layout, Needs to be more servicable

This course layout is great and worth a drive to play. The two nine's set-up slightly differently, which makes your round fun. Based on the region, the greens-fee for "out-of-borough" residents is a steep, especially for the staff services and demeanor that are provided. They kind of emit a "municipal course" attitude, when what your paying for is more upscale services. The clubhouse is nice, but lacks a traditional locker room. The course is deserving enough for a play, which is paramount!
