Nice course

Very wet, and conditions were so-so. Tee boxes were muddy, some really bad cart paths. Fairways were cut nice, rough was high, but to be expected, since IDA came through. New club house is beautiful.

Golf course was nice but past prime, staff was poor

I was here a day or two after a big storm so water was on the course which was expected. The staff was unfriendly at best and pushing for a faster pace of play while we were waiting on multiple people in front of us. The course looked like it was really nice a while ago and had a nice layout. In particular the course ranger was almost aggressive and rude and the off course amenities were poor or not at all for the price being similar to that of a top course. The greens were nice even after the storm and overall it was still beautiful.

Golf

Always nice to play at Berkleigh. A favorite,
Very good course for rate. Testy layout and unforgiving if out of position the slightest bit. Fairways and greens ran out alot and greens were fast. difficult course - was in nice shape. Pace of play was just under 4hrs which was nice also. Buddy had a hole-in-one on hole 6. So that made the experience even more enjoyable. A must play if you haven’t been to Berkleigh!

Best Kept Secret “Love this Course”

Hands down one of my favorite courses. Definitely a long course With challenging holes. Greens are always in great shape in addition to the fairways and tee boxes. Staff members are polite and attentive. The thing that separates this course from others in the pace of play… phenomenal!! This course is never over crowded and rarely are you waiting behind another group. I’ve played multiple 2hr or so rounds here without rushing. Weekends are a little pricey however there are always hot deals and discount opportunities. They also have a grass driving range (no mats) and a chipping and putting green, however the chipping area does need some work. Club house was recently renovated and has an excellent indoor bar area. Can’t say enough good things about this course A++++

Fun Course

Like a lot of courses, Berkleigh is investing in course improvements to make the golf more enjoyable. Like improving the cart paths and bunkers which were immaculate. The rough remains thick and long which puts a premium on hitting fairways.

Another good course lost

This course hosted PGA events, the conditions aren’t suitable to host a friendly local events.
Bag drop off not available,
Carts are dirty and in poor working order
Course routing has changed. GPS DOESN’T work properly
Bunker maintenance is terrible, NO Sand. You’re going to be blading your shots all day.
Tee ground maintenance could be better

So disappointed!!

Nice surprise

My first time playing this course and recommend. The layout is all in front of you with the exception of one hole with a blind tee shot. Course and greens were in good condition particularly give the amount of heavy rain recently. I was driving from NJ to Pittsburgh and this was a perfect stop.

Excellent Conditions

The course is in excellent shape. The greens are receptive and putts roll nicely. The best part of the round was getting a Hole in One on the 6th hole. Certainly made it a memorable experience! The only negative is the condition of the cart paths..need repair. Overall it is an enjoyable course to play and pleasing to view

Not un-bad

Bunkers looked to be in really nice shape, which is more or less how I determine quality for the money. It looks like there have been some changes to the course and club house: Trees cut down/back, new club renovation. The course was well kept, rough is a bit grabby. Greens rolled nice as well. I would return but I think $70 on Saturday morning paired with an hour drive away is a tough sell. There is room for improvement, a few blind tee shots should have a bell or something to ring so players on the tee know it's safe. The bar is over priced. 6 miller lites and a hot dog at the turn was $30! They offered 'Turn Burgers' for $5, which is just a burger but they sold burger platters if you called in for more than twice as much! The tee sheet was not packed, and we still were asked to allow a group to play through. Note that they were not significantly better than us, but the solution was to split our foursome up, not force us to wait 15-20 minutes for the hackers behind us push ahead. My handicap app times my rounds, we came in at 4:21, which means we were on pace for a 4 hour round - exactly what the course asks for! I'd recommend this course solely to play, but not for anything specific. I would not drink or eat here again, and I'd only play with the right hot deal.

Very Nice layout

I always enjoy playing Berkleigh Golf Course. Generally, I play there at least once a week. This golf course is always in excellent condition and the layout is excellent. The Staff is friendly too. I have not had an opportunity to eat in the restaurant which I hope to do in the near future after a round of golf.
