Nice state park course
Played here this week for the first time and it's pretty nice for a state park course. I work at a city ran course in Memphis and wish we had better conditions like these. Pretty rural area, fast pace of play and great price. Amazing how many deer running around the entire course. I hope to be back at some point.
Very enjoyable golf course. Worth the drive!
I drove almost an hour to play this course and was not disappointed. Unfortunately, the day I played had a full tee sheet and play was very slow. I won't hold that against them, though. Overall, it's a great course and I look forward to returning next season.
Great shape and greens were FAST! I knocked it 1 star on account of it running a bit short. Fortunately (if you call it that) I'm a bit injured with a rib strain so my swing speed is down so the shorter course played to my advantage, that said if you can carry the ball 270+ you're gonna want to play from the tips otherwise you're definitely going to out drive some fairways.
Extremely fast greens
Course is a beautiful setting. Greens were insanely fast. Not a course for bump and run around greens. Hard to stick an approach shot. Greens were very firm. Enjoyed playing this course.
For the last several seasons, I have played this course 1 to 2 times weekly. Without question, the condition of the course this season is second to none. Everything about Montgomery Bell is well above average. The staff is always friendly. During the reopening after the initial quarantine, the golf course staff followed the appropriate protocol and also made transactions easy. Now that the course is back open for normal business, the staff remains top notch. There is a noticable difference in the condition of the course year over year as well. The greens are some the most reliable but difficult I have played. The fairways reward you for well struck drives and approach shots. The secondary cut and rough are maintained well enough to allow for the difficulty they are designed for. I have reintroduced a few friends to Montgomery Bell this season after they had stopped playing there several years back. They all agree, the improvements are excellent!
We played on a Fall Saturday afternoon, first time playing the course. Greens were hard but darn near perfect, and matched the putting green. Fairways were excellent and rough was tough and thick. Great wildlife and scenery.
There's several blind uphill tee shots, so some information on yardages and preferred placement would be extremely helpful. Also there are overgrown limbs directly in front of the white tees on 2 of those holes, making the course completely different than from the back tees. Please insert the plastic cup deeper into the Earth, they were all placed even with the ground. On #2 I hit a beautiful flop shot that came down on the edge of the hole and it struck the cup, bouncing the ball 10' up and 25' long and left.
It's still a great course and some small maintenance changes would change my overall to a 5 star.
MB is a great course in excellent condition. The greens are in perfect shape.
Beautiful mountain course
Great course interesting elevation changes. My only complaint is the par 5s are too short. The par 3s are very challenging and make up for it.
Fun Yet Challenging Course!
I recently played here in a golf tournament and was very impressed. The bermuda greens were smooth and in great condition considering how cold the winter has been. The fairways were well cut and had no dirt patches. The driving range and practice green were also in great condition. Overall, I think this course is great for the price and would certainly recommend it.
After a very wet start to the year, the course, including the greens were very payable. Layout is challenging, yet not tricked up.
Nice scenic course. Sets up good for a draw almost throughout. Greens above you a lot of times. I feel like some of the greens were smaller than I am used to hitting to around my hometown but all of them rolled pretty true. Didn’t have my best day but didn’t find it that hard to stay out of trouble, and ended up shooting in the low 80’s. Pretty pleased overall, saw a lot of deer and turkeys too.
Gorgeous course with several risk/reward opportunities. Phenomenal greens...
