Nice weather for January

Played the west and north courses today. Not to many people on the course today, but the weather was agreeable. This course is being Renovated somewhat. Once you get past where the old club house was, can play one of 3 9 holes course. All are challenging, but not overwhelming. Had a very good experience today, would recommend, get out and play golf.

Winter golf, it is what it is

Layout was unremarkable. Played south and west courses. South was a little more interesting than west. Given the low Temps and lots of rain, the course was unbelievably waterlogged. But I'm just happy to play golf in January!

Nice to play

Played nine on the South and nine on the North course. Both nines had enough challenge to them. Some greens were in rough shape but overall course was good. First time playing so a little confusing on which way to go.

Nice Day

Was a great fall day for golf. Price was right and pace of play was actually very good. The curse overall was in good shape. Nothing to complain about really.

Friendly South Hills

The staff at South Hills couldn''t have been nicer. The only reason I marked average for off-course amenities was because everything was shut down due to COVID. Obviously, this not their fault.

Which Way?

For the first time playing there, if not knowing what courses were named North, and South, and West, all laid out together wasn't confusing enough, then the absence of hole directions telling you which way to the next hole, really didn't make travelling through the terrain any easier. We had no idea that the West to South, and the North to West, and the South to wherever,were 9 hole layouts. I'm still not sure if we were playing on the correct holes. Why all the different directions for the holes? I heard it was 27 holes afterward!! where were the other 9 holes we never saw? Don't thin I'll be back no time soon until directions and layout is better. Thanks, but no thanks.

Great Value

Three different 9 hole tracks with three different personalities. Very good condition on all three. Interesting layouts. Our group played 18 in a bit over three hours. Nice grill and good staff. Enjoy playing here.

Nice day

Not too busy at noon so played in a little over 3 hours. Fairways pretty hard but still moderately green. The greens were in good shape but also very firm.

Interesting Layout

Challenging course with a variety of terrain, water hazards, and fairway shapes that benefit from careful course management decisions. Conditions were generally good, though a few greens had some bad spots.

Gorgeous Day

Very warm but not humid day. Our tee time was at noon. We got off early and the course was in very good shape for all the heat we have had this summer. The starter was great. The club house attendant was not very talkative. We seen at least 3 rangers out on the course which is always a plus! Will be back.

Try someplace else

My wife and I joined up with a nice gentleman hoping to make the pace of play seem better. It didn’t work, we still waited every shot around the course. The tee boxes that had grass was 2-3 inches long. Many of the red tees seem like after thoughts. The greens have dirt patches on many of them. It’s a shame to see how the course conditions have deteriorated.

OK Course

OK Course for the money. The tee boxes and greens were in bad shape. Looks like not enough water. The layout is very nice. They are not dealing with the COVID -19 pandemic at all. None of the workers were wearing masks. The inside was kind of rude. when asked about the ability to social distance by having single riders in carts, he responded that you can go back to Maryland for that. Very rude. Probably won't be back. Even though is was cheap to play.
