Course beat up

This course was beat up the golf cart paths had so many holes and bumps I need to go to the doctor to to get put back together. Corse layout was bad with needing to drive in the line of fire from on coming players. The was a lot of blind shots not knowing if there was anyone in hitting range. I can say that the course was challenging.

A True Renaissance

Hadn't been to HLJ since it was renamed and it was an absolute pleasure. Very accommodating staff (I accidentally booked a pair but we actually had a foursome) and they took care of us. Great course layout. Fairly open and easy on the front and then challenging on the back. Will definitely be back.

Better than past

Course was extremely wet and Cary path only which makes for a ton of walking. Cart paths are in very bad shape all over the course. Greens a little slow, tee boxes had high grass. Greens held, but again it was very wet. But overall the course was much better than when I have played in past. This is not my favorite course but the price was right for a Tuesday round of golf.

hasn't changed in 20years

greens and fairways weren't awful, the cart paths were all trash though. Why can't they repair them? The paths have been destroyed probably 15+ years. The bridge was out on hole 18.
Part of a pleasant round of golf is being able to drive from one green to the next tee box without knocking your back out from off road looking cart path.

Harry’s getting better

Looks a lot better since last time I played there. Fairways are green and look good. Greens look good and are rolling.

First experience here

Round took 5 hours, and this was the worst condition course I’ve ever played. Every hole had burnt grass fairways and very long furry greens. Unique layout with LOTS of blinds shots. Also don’t let them try to give you cart 34, the brake doesn’t work. Worker gave me a hard time when I told him I’d like to switch carts. And the snack/food counter wasn’t open at the turn around 5:30…

Fabulous Time and Beautiful Course

My friends and I are classmates of the United States Military Academy, West Point, Class of 74.
One never played before at this course. All of us loved the challenges and agreed that the course was very well maintained and the greens were in excellent condition.

The staff was super friendly and the service was quick and courteous !!!

Thank you ... we'll be back.

Fantastic course

Absolutely loved playing this course. Very fun layout with great conditions. Front 9 is much more forgiving off the Tees but had some key placed hills and bunkers to keep it challenging. Fairways and rough were excellent. Greens were challenging but consistent. Will definitely be playing again any time I’m in the area!

Next to last minute option

Carts are old and the cart path is older … needs a new cart path from beginning to end.

Book a chiropractic appointment when you book your tee time.

Check-in was okay and we went off on time. The course is in decent shape but the cart paths were awful. I thought another reviewer may have been exaggerating a bit when he said the paths were bad. I needed a trip to the chiropractor after about 4 holes. On #10 there is a nasty undulation/drop in the cart path that will wind up injuring someone if it is not repaired soon. Beware of this as you approach the green on the cart path. Make sure you put your headcovers back on as well or you'll wind up with some fresh new dents or dings in your woods.

The most memorable part of the day was the car paths. They really were that bad. I really want to like this course but I just can't right now. I'll give it a shot again one day if the paths are fixed. Until then, I'll play elsewhere.

Be aware of plating after the last rainy days

There were a lot of mud on the fairway due to it’s raining almost the day before.. Otherwise the course is challenging for new golfers.
