Enjoyable

I enjoy the course. There are limited options in the area, so it is a compliment to the staff that they are courteous and friendly. The course continues to be kept in good shape.

Challenging but fair

Always a good challenging round at Golden Hills, but fair. Greens rolled great. Be sure you put yourself in the right spot otherwise you have a tricky putt for all the humps and bumps.

Fun Course tough greens

We played as a three some in under 4 hrs. on this gem of a shorter course. The course was in very good condition, however, the greens and surrounds are some of the toughest challenges I have played in a long time. The greens were in perfect shape but playing them for the first time was nothing less then just plain hard! Loved It! Will definitely play here many more times in the future.

Ranger ruined the round

My foursome was well under pace thru 6 holes when the ranger showed up to tell us we needed to pick it up. He then sat on the 10th green, watched us finish the hole, and followed us to the 11th tee to tell us to pick it up again while the next group was still playing from the middle of the 11th fairway.

The course was excellent and the clubhouse staff and starter were friendly as could be but the ranger absolutely ruined our round. Take the 4 hour pace of play rule with a grain of salt if that guy is riding around
