The Golf Club at Star Fort sits near the site of a Revolutionary battle known as the Assault at Star Fort. The golf course offers a family-friendly layout surrounded by the region's rich history. The player-friendly design is gentle enough for junior players and beginners, but it's also great for more advanced players who are looking for a quick round. It will surprise you with a few challenges too. At 6,952 yards, the golf course isn't terribly long but there are still some good driving holes. There are some interesting risk-reward par 5s and some fun par 3s that will make you think. Star Fort's final hole is a par 4 that requires accuracy over distance since you'll have to weave through two ponds before facing an uphill shot to a well bunkered green.

Nice layout

Nice layout but the greens were not that good. Don’t book a tee time before 8am because they don’t open before then and golf now allows you to start booking at 7am

Nice course

Greens need some work, cart paths are very bad, bunkers are not raked, other than that it is a pretty little golf course. It definitely needs some love.

Love playing this course because of the challenging layout. It's nice to putt on above average greens that stimp a little higher than most other courses nearby.

The staff were not helpful at all.

Got there at 8:50am for a 9:10 tee time. Checked in at the pro shop with no problems. Was not told that there was a tournament going on in the middle of the day. Being ingnorant to this fact we started on the 10th tee because the first was packed. Got to the turn and I was told I could not continue playing because of the tournament. No big deal. I tried to get a rain check for the last nine but was denied because I booked on Golf Now. Staff members then proceeded to tell me I should have teed off on the first tee and I could’ve continued to play as if they told me there would be a tournament later that day and I should have started on the front. First and last time I play here.

Great conditions!

You can definitely tell the course has a new superintendent. The greens were a little slower than normal, but the overall course was extremely enjoyable.

The worst pace of play I have ever seen

I have attempted to play this course a few times and have never been able to play all 18 holes before getting frustrated because of the EXTREMELY slow pace and rudeness of players. Fivesomes every where and groups refuse to let anyone play through. There were 7 groups on one hole waiting to hit. The course itself is decent but staff do nothing to speed up players. Would not recommend this course unless you enjoy waiting 10 minutes between shots.

Hello, thank you for reviewing the course. We apologize for the delay of play during your round. This is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. With an uncharacteristically full day, we work hard to accommodate everyone who visits our course and allow our guest the chance to complete their rounds. With that in mind, we are working to best control pace and allow everyone to finish in a reasonable amount of time. We will continue to look for ways to improve. Thank you for playing The Golf Club At Star Fort. We hope to see you again soon.

Course was in great condition. The greens rolled very smoothly and the fairway were very good. The only issue was the group of five holding up play.
