Length 2559 yards
Slope 120
Rating 33.5

Franklin Golf Course is a player-friendly, nine-hole course that is perfect for beginners. At 2,559 yards from the tips, the course plays to a par of 35. While the layout is not exactly a challenge, it does provide a quick round that is good for some practice. The bentgrass greens are well-maintained and putt true. There is no water on the course but there are a few strategically placed bunkers throughout. The hazards are nothing too serious though. The traditional layout has remained largely unchanged since opening in 1941. The golf course easily accommodates those who are new to the game but seasoned players looking for a challenging round will have to go elsewhere though the affordable rates are enough to appeal to any skill level.

Perfect Course for Someone on a Budget

This course is a favorite of mine especially when I am trying to save money, The greens are normally decent (sometimes there are dead patches) and the holes have a good layout. There are no fairways however and make sure you watch your shot all the way through cause due to the hills and tall grass it is hard to find your shots at times. I love playing here and I recommend it to anyone looking to have fun playing for cheap.

A lot of fun

With all the recent rain the greens were very soft. Very challenging holes with lots of hills and valleys. Will play here again.

Awful

I’m really sorry to write this review because I really hope nothing for the best for this club. So I paid for nine holes and a cart thankfully got a discount through this app because I would have felt absolutely robbed if not. To start the cart I was given had problems felt like the motor was from a junkyard. The fairways and tee boxes were legitimately just dirt and weeds. To make it even more fun the layout is absolutely atrocious the most hills I’ve ever seen. Also couldn’t find the greens for hole 4 and 5 lol. The reason the pace of play was so good was because I was the only person out here.

Could only play four holes due to work being done on the greens but the course made it right with a free round in the future. That’s fair!! We played four holes twice and left happy.

First and Last time playing this course

They triple booked our tee time so had to wait 30 minutes to tee off. They had no carts available, which also delayed our start. Extremely rude and unprofessional staff inside the clubhouse, if you can even call it that, and over the phone. Staff answered phone “No carts, bye” and hung up. Course is in horrible shape and the layout is the worst I’ve seen. Save yourself a disappointing round and go elsewhere.

Tough design

Is there a kinda recommended option ? Played here yesterday morning with a friend . Love the charm of the clubhouse. Seems like a fun place for food and drinks after a round, but rona took that option away. Good value, carts were old but I think it adds to the charm. Fairways were trimmed and greens were well cared for.
But good God this course was difficult to play it was like someone went into a tiger woods video game, selected course designer and just put hill after hill after hill after hill after hill after hill ......... there were times I felt like I was playing from a 45 degree pitch.
Honestly don’t know if I’d ever come back to play here again, but that has nothing to do with my experience or the care of the course. The course is well maintained and everyone was very friendly. But I’m a pretty casual golfer and this course just wasn’t a great fit for me.

Welcoming and friendly

I am a “beginner” golfer according to my scorecard but have had the chance to see many of the golf courses in the area due to the line of work that I am in. This course is not the most glamorous and I doubt that you will find a surf & turf option on the menu in the clubhouse but it is perfect for me! The laid back atmosphere and the staff friendliness are second to none. I was often intimidated by a golf course and used that fear to keep me off the links. This course and staff make you feel right at home and are there to help. Matt is the new head grounds keeper and he spends his free time helping direct new players around the course and just stoping by each group to say hello, offer a few course tips, and get your feedback. I’m actually considering spending the $299 to become a member. This course is perfect for what it is and the staff is super friendly! Thanks for letting this fella feel comfortable on a course!
