Horrendous pace of play

They had a young girls tournament before our tee time with ZERO time buffer. Our front 9 took 3 hours. Ranger more concerned about tires being 3 inches off cart path than moving things along. Guess they trying to protect the fairways that had clover and mushrooms growing in them. Last time I will play it even with a good GN deal, not worth it.

Good Course and Great People

Very nice staff with a good course layout. The off course drinks are fairly inexpensive and the course is kept in good shape with the help of the staff. The course layout features a few interesting par fours and some straight par threes that are good for the average golfer.

Great conditions for Spring

The course is an excellent shape for spring. The rates were very good. You can already see they are working on the course and the trees etc for the upcoming year. Greens were in great shape.

**Try the bloody Mary's. They are excellent.

On the day I played unfortunately it was little on the soggy side due to all the rain that had been in the area previously. The course still played well greens were decent except for a couple holes where tree pollen stuff accumulated on the greens. I still recommend this course to play.

Good course

I've played this course many times, but not many times recently. It has always been a pretty good course, but today the course was in the best shape I've seen in quite some time. Everything was very well maintained. I was pleasantly surprised.

Course in good shape

Overall course was in nice shape and greens were very good and fast. Pace was nice as it was fairly crowded on a very nice day, There are a few holes where leaves are an issue but the majority of the holes were cleaned up.

Great course , good prices!

I remember playing this course 30 years ago and enjoyed playing it again the past few years once I took up the game again. Glad to see it is still around and in great shape. We keep losing courses to housing and I hope this one is around for another 30!!!

The Sportsman

The course is a great value. Not too challenging but not too easy. Pace of play was excellent! A little over 3 hours for 18. A lot of work is being done to the course but the staff stays out of your way. Bring some bug spray! It was a great round if you are vacationing in Hershey, PA I highly recommend playing here.
