It is what it is

Great course for beginners. They have some very short Par 3s…not intimidating tee shots at all

There are two VERY well designed holes on the course. One is absolutely tremendous & clever. Deceiving tee shot, very risk/reward

Other than those 2 great holes…there are two decent Par 5s…a couple pedestrian holes & 2 very basic golf holes

If you come expecting Oakmont, you’ll be disappointed. For what it is though…it’s a great little course. Just maybe a bit overpriced. $33 for 18 would probably be about perfect, but I’m not splitting hairs over $5…I just think maybe that’s why people’s reviews here are harsh. There expectations after paying $40 are too high

Poor Conditions mixed with bad layout

I played here for the first time today and I am 12 handicap . The first 9 we played we flew through but as soon as I got to the first tee box which took me sometime to find I could tell this would be an interesting round. The tee boxes were covered in divots along with being cut to the length of the rough. No even ground to stand on the tee boxes either. Grass growing over the edges of the cup. Then when we made the turn we only got to play 1 hole because there were 3 6 somes in front of us after waiting 30 minutes on a par three me and my partner decided to just leave.

Old School 9 Hole course

Course was designed by Emil Loeffler who was the superintendent at Oakmont. Course used to be a private course many years ago. Layout plays over rolling terrain and the greens are small with lots of undulation.

Perfect weather
Used cart

Great 9 hole course and a bonus BBQ joint.

Played 18 here with my wife for the first time last week. It was $80 in total for a cart and 18 holes. They have two sets of tees one for the front and the other for the back. The add a bit of variance on the second play through that puts it above your average 9 hole. Staff was super nice and got us checked in quick and on the course. At the turn we had some delicious BBQ and beer and again the staff was great. I definitely suggest checking this out if you are in the area and looking for a chill experience. For the better golfers there are a few well guarded holes and 9 can be a blind tee shot if you have the driver length.

I’d Rather Eat Dirt

Got to this place, and they didn’t even know what Golf Now was, first tried to say my prepaid reservation through this app wouldn’t get me on the course. Whatever, wasn’t too worried about it. Then I pull up to what I assumed was the first tee box, but it was #10 tee box. It’s a 9 hole course that plays the same holes twice, just 2 tee boxes per hole.

The course was in terrible shape, I could’ve had a more worthwhile round in a garbage dump. This course should cost $10 to play, if that. Don’t waste your time.

Waste of money. Horrible shape. Impossible to keep a ball on the fair way because it’s on so many hill, I wouldn’t play there again even if they paid me

Worst course ever.

Imagine mowing your grass once per month and calling it a golf course. That’s what Harmony Ridge does apparently. I have literally lost balls in the fairway before. Nothing is ever watered so it’s covered in hard surfaces. Pace of play is slow as people there take 3 or more mulligans per hole at times. Slowest greens on earth. Very short course being under 6k yards. There is absolutely no reason to go here. You won’t enjoy the course nor will you get a deal. For $38 it’s basically theft.

Horrible

Never again. Thought $22 was an ok deal for the 4th of July observed, so took my gf for 9 holes - she's brand new to the sport. Course says its 18 holes, but its not. It's 9 holes with 18 tee boxes. Rock hard teeing ground, tall fairways with clovers everywhere (actually lost a ball in the "short stuff"), legit stones in the traps, and slow, uncut greens. Only staff we saw the whole time was the bartender/shop attendant/starter guy who told us our cart number and we just went and tee'd off. Nobody organizing the groups starting so there were just twosomes and solo golfers all around us killing the pace. Saw a shirtless golfer at one point when we were looking for our ball. It's western PA so this isn't totally crazy, but there really isn't a single flat lie on the course, and it's pretty extreme here. Again, wouldn't recommend this to any golfer ever unless you want to find a $10 round to use as a warmup before playing a real course. Fownes would be rolling in his grave....

I am not sure why they even charge you to play this course because they clearly don’t use any of the incoming revenue for updates/ upkeep. The man in front of me, without exaggeration, hit 3 tee shots, all OB, on every single hole and there’s no one to complain about pace of play to because it’s literally just a bar. I mean I only paid $14, but in order for me to come back it’s going to have to be free.
