Carved from acres of rolling countryside, Valley View Golf Club blends seamlessly into its surroundings. The scenic setting has led to the club being known simply as "The View" amongst locals. It has been a standby for the area's golfers for more than 55 years. The hilly terrain provides some interesting slopes throughout the golf course. The watered, fairways are generously sized, but they are lined with mature trees so they still demand a fair amount of accuracy. The medium-sized greens are undulating and vary in speed from medium to fast. The golf course has an ideal combination of challenges balanced with more forgiving features that appeals to a variety of different skill levels. Both beginners and more experienced players looking for a casual round will enjoy Valley View Golf Club.

Country Golf

Lots of elevation on different holes course is in average shape can't or shouldn't play the bunkers. The only real downside is the tee times you just went whenever you or your group was ready probably should get more organized in this area. Overall it was a fun course, and I would play again

Course layout

The back nine is a 4.75 star but the front nine I would give it a 2.25. A couple holes are nice on the front but every hole on the back is great. I would play the back twice

Short and Forgiving

Fun course to play. Greens were slow but in really good overall shape. Fairways and bunkers needed work. Some holes are tight together so get some overlapping play, but allows for some forgiveness. Used almost all clubs with the layout, not just a drive and chip course. Would definitely play it again.

Water the greens!!

It was tough to get anything to stick on the greens. Would almost have to club down everytime and hope it would roll on the green. Overall decent course, however this issue needs attention.

Great layout but poor course conditions

This was my first time playing this course, so I didn’t have high or low expectations before playing. The layout is great (with many elevated tees and greens to go along with many sloping fairways and hills) which makes the course challenging and interesting. However, the course conditions were well below expectations for any course. The tee boxes were not well cut, every fairways had many bare spots, bunkers were not raked and many had standing water, the ponds were entirely covered with green algae (one had hundreds of bloated dead fish floating on top), and the greens were hard and would not hold any shot lower than that of a 56 deg wedge. Fun layout but won’t be returning due to the course conditions, which is a shame because this course has a ton of potential.
