If you haven't played Pine Valley in awhile, it's time to go back!

I'm originally from Wadsworth so this was my hometown course 10-15 years ago. We weren't very good back then so we didn't golf any nice courses. That being said, this course is under new ownership now and has made a lot of progress improving this course. It is in the best shape I've ever seen it so I really commend them on that. With a cheaper course like this, the grass tends to be a little longer everywhere and this course is no different so the fairways aren't cut as low and the greens are slower. They've done a good job of keeping the rough on the shorter side though so you aren't losing balls in it. It's not the same Pine Valley so if you haven't tried it in awhile, give it another shot. With the current state of golf courses in the area, I'd much rather pay $35 for Pine Valley then pay $55 for an intermediate course. I've golfed a lot of those intermediate courses this year, and their level of maintenance/care has only gone down.

Much improved course conditions

I have played this course a few times in the past few years, but have been reluctant to go back because the tee boxes and fairways were in rough condition. Also, the greens were cut high and were more like carpet than a putting surface. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the fine condition of the overall course, especially the greens, as they were cut lower and were much faster than in previous years. Also, many dead trees have been removed from the course that Help open up the fairways. I will be back as I really enjoyed the round, as it was reasonably priced and pace of play was good too. I was able to finish 18 with a friend in about 3.5 hours.

New Ownership/much improved

Last summer the course was in bad shape however this year it’s night and day difference. New owners took it over two years ago and they have put a lot of work into it. All the complaints from last summers reviews are pretty much all handled. Owners are super friendly. Things are maintained properly now. Always can find a tee time here.

Short but fun track

Old school down and back golf course with good amount of room off tees on most holes but very small crowned greens. Course is on the shorter side but that makes it fun, in my opinion. The staff are very friendly. Overall a nice place for a round of golf. My understanding is that the course is recently under new ownership and they have made great strides to improve conditions and make the experience a positive one (it was). We will be back.

Great hidden Gem

The course is really on the up swing. Looks like the new ownership is really working hard to make this a solid course. So many different types of holes that a good golfer will need every club in the bag- I used driver, hybrids and a 5 iron off par 4’s which makes it fun. The tee boxes are under repair but playable and the club house is under renovation with a new deck overlooking the course. It’s a high recommendation for the $. All skill levels will have fun.

Nice Course

Decent course for the price. Only problem was they were way over booked. We paid for 18 but only played 9 due to darkness. They did however give us a rain check for 9 holes another day.

Great For Beginners

First Time at Pine Valley, and wow where do I start. The conditions were pretty good, tee boxes and greens were fantastic. The fairways were pretty swampy on some holes, and I’m pretty sure Shrek isn’t a permanent resident. The layout was great and the facilities/ staff was awesome! The only big negative was the pace. It wasn’t abysmal, but it looked like the group in front of us was trying to hit a marble with a garden stake most of the time. I mean it looked like I was one of the better players on the course, and that’s saying something because I played like crap. Anyway, will have to give this course another shot sometime soon!

Keep trying but this may have done it.

Well over 5 hours. Won’t be able to finish the round.
There was actually a 6some on the course and several 5somes.
Used to play the course a lot. Then the first new ownership was terrible. The r cent owners seem to be trying. But pace of play and fairway condition will keep me from ever coming back.
I’m done.
