fun day of golfing

Despite the fact that the course was still wet in spots from all the rain recently. It was a great day of golfing. As usual all of the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Great course-the staff could be friendlier

I've always like playing Bucknell. The course is usually in great shape and it's very challenging. The staff on the other hand, are just not kind...unless you're one of their buddies. I've never had anyone say hi to me, or thanks for playing, etc. That's not needed for me to have a great time playing, but it would make the trip up there a bit more worth it.

Very Nice Course; FAST Greens

I typically play Bucknell Golf Course 3 or 4 times a year; this was my first time golfing it in almost two years. Overall, the course was in very good shape; the tee boxes are level and well maintained, fairways were in wonderful condition, sand traps had nice consistency, but the greens were hard and super fast, much faster than those on other courses that I play more often. Putting downhill was absolutely treacherous today! If not for the fast greens and the slow pace of play, I would have given the course a 5-star rating.

Great day

Course conditions were close to perfect, greens smooth and fast, tee boxes and fairways were very good. 2 of us zipped through in 3.20 on a Monday afternoon.
Course could use better markings from hole to hole, not always obvious when heading to the next hole. Didn't eat/use restaurant.
