The Players Club at Foxfire Golf Club
Foxfire Golf Club boasts 36 holes of championship golf, the Foxfire Course and the Players Club Course. The Players Club was added in 1993.The layout is a deft combination of traditional American golf and traditional British links design that provides the perfect complement to the original. The golf course is the more challenging of the two, but not by much. The layout features narrow fairways lined with trees and water hazards on eight holes. There are three particularly tricky carries over water. Strategically placed bunkers and contoured mounding also treacherously lurk by the greensides. The par-4 16th hole is the course's signature. This demanding hole plays uphill through trees to a green that is guarded by five bunkers. The most memorable hole though, might be the par-5 eighth, which features the longest sand bunker in the Midwest.

The course has continued to improve and improve and improve in the last few years.!!! In a word... WOW!!! so happy to see the course in such amazing condition.
What an underutilized course for the value
My first time playing here and I left impressed. I was unsure whether the course would be in good condition as I know it has been a little bit off in the past. The fairways and greens were dry but green without any real rough spots.. The greens rolled fast, not just because they were dry, but because they are challenging. Lots of rolling fairways. greens and water challenges that make the game of golf fun and beautiful.
The halfway house after 8 is just awesome. Food is fresh, hot and lots of choices for condiments. Drinks are cold! My only complaint is how slow the gold cart was.
Good as always
Been playing this course for 40 years, always fun. Conditions very good for a public course with a lot of play. Carts and cart paths are showing their age, but it appears they are putting their money in the course as it was in very good condition.
Great Condition, Tough Course!
I had not played the Foxfire Player's Club course in awhile. I was pleasantly surprised by how lush the course was. Greens rolled the same all day, very consistent. This is one of the toughest public courses around, and the back 9 was really tough, as usual. Will return to this course as soon as I am able.
challenging but fun!
traveling from out of state and just found a tee time here. didn't know what to expect but the course itself is pretty fun and challenging, water on a number of holes and a big emphasis on getting your drives into the fairway because there's lots of OB/trees on a number of holes. greens were very nice, fairways had good coverage and it's a fun track. definitely helps to know the areas to miss! would come back if i lived in the area. pro shop is in the bar area which is weird and they don't allow spectators FYI. also the cart paths are super bumpy so be aware!!
Fun and challenging course
Course is in excellent shape. Great layout, fair but challenging layout. Greens, tees and fairways all in excellent condition.
Worth the trip!
Played this for the first time and I was not disappointed. Was not planning on playing that day but I had the opportunity and took it. The fairways were green and lush. The greens had plenty of holes with undulations that made it hard to read let alone them being fast! Great layout with some blind tee shots.
Pace of play was pretty bad being a single when no one followed golf etiquette and no ranger. But that’s how it is anymore on courses.
Would love to come back and play again and bring some friends!
I took a chance on playing Foxfire from other reviews on GolfNow. The last time I played was over 10 years ago when there were two courses. I had heard that the new staff has plus a lot of money and effort into rebuilding the course and it shows.
The course was in great condition. The greens rolled very well. The unique layout was refreshing and challenging as it rewards accurate tee shots. Solid food and beverage service at the halfway house between #8 and 9.
Staff members were very nice.
Only negatives I can think of are the cart paths - however, I would invest all my money into the greens/course so this isn’t a knock. There were quite a lot of areas that were severely bumpy. Don’t let that deter you. Second was pace of play. Granted my group finished in 4.5 hours on a Wednesday afternoon, but it could have been a lot faster if the groups in front were managed as we waited on every shot from the start.
Great experience. Since they sold the other course this is the only one that remains and clearly they are starting to put money into it again. Very good condition and much improved over previous years. The only issue is the clubhouse is still old and poorly designed. They really need a remodel (or tear down) as it's pretty basic. Also there's no excuse for the gravel parking lot.
If they keep working hard on this course and putting money into it, then it could be very nice in a short time! It’s good enough now that I’ll play there again. Greens and fairways much better!
A beloved course by many seeing conditions deteriorate
Although this is a great course, there are some misses that can be remedied if only the owners would take care of. #1 The parking lot. At a course like this charging what they do, the lot should be paved. It's nothing but gravel. #2. The cart paths at the very least should be repaved in areas where they are so bumpy the cart bag wants to bounce out. #3 The carts themselves are probably the slowest I've ever been on. #4 updates to the bar. It feels like stepping into a 1970's pub. The pro shop is bare minimum. Restrooms feel dingy.
All that said, the course layout is awesome! It's long and relentless. Once you think you've played some hard holes, this course drops the hammer on you. There's a 3 hole stretch on the back nine (2 of which are back to back par 5's) that require long straight shots place properly to have a decent shot towards the hole. If you don't have a decent game, stay away from this course. You're going to go through a pack of balls or more if you typically shoot in the high 80's or 90's at most courses. If you're game is advanced and you need some challenge, then look no further. This course will test you on all your clubs and having you hit straight, draws and fades on demand.
