Great course for all levels of play. Big, smooth greens and nice conditions throughout. Some bunkers, water and length. The pro shop has wide selection of equipment and good pricing. I recommend this place.

I agree this is a descent course for the area but wow $39 green fees?? C'mon this course is not even close to a championship course that deems those kind of prices. I have played alot of golf here but after the price raise i will play elsewhere.

Cart path is only partially paved and muddy. Greens were in poor condition. Tee boxes and fairways were nice. The back 9 is a much better layout than the front. Staff/ranger are not welcoming at all. Ranger ruined our day by telling us to hurry when we were 3 holes ahead of group behind us.

Good course for the area... well kept and always improving. Has the only nice sand bunkers in town,well maintained except always has temporary holes in the spring, and somewhat tight. A bit expensive but no worse than the other local courses... you have to pay for a decent golf course where most are not very good.

This course is truly the story of 2 different 9's. The front 9 is about as boring and ugly as it gets, but the back 9 is nicer to look at and much more fun to play. Without a lot of other choices in the Huntington area, this would probably be the best (not counting Hidden Cove in Grayson, KY 30 miles away which is a GREAT course). Main problem I have with this course is the condition, which never seems to be very good.

Ever Changing

This course is challenging on all sides with risk/reward scenarios. The owner is constantly moving from one stage to another stage to improve this course. Any owner that constantly puts money back into the course has a vision of a long standing course.

best buy in the area

this course is the best maintained public coiurse in the tri-state area. new and improved holes, teeing areas, traps, etc are constantly being added. from the tips this course is plenty at around 6800 yds. there are elevated tees, doglegs, forced water carries and numerous lakes that come into play. the greens are cut daily, maintain a good speed and present plenty of challenge with their undulations and slopes. the pro shop is the best stocked around. if in the area and only playing one course this is your best bet.

This course is vastly improved over several years ago when I last played it. The clubhouse is also improved and contains a small restaurant area. The fairways and greens are much better maintained and new and more difficult holes have been added. The fairways are tree-lined and relatively wide open and flat. There are sand traps and water hazards that come into play on several holes. It is a course well-suited for short hitters and one that will require you to utilize all the clubs in the bag. A nice course.
