Rating 71.0

Raccoon Valley Golf Course (formerly known as Raccoon International Golf Club) sprawls across gently rolling woodlands, featuring scenic vistas of the surrounding countryside. The course is known for being home to the longest par 5 in the state, the notorious 17th hole. This treacherous hole measures in at a devilish 666 yards that will challenge even the longest hitters. Although the terrain is mostly flat and open, there are some surprisingly dramatic undulations in the greens that will cause tricky uneven lies. There are several lakes that come into play throughout as well as a number of strategically placed bunkers. In addition to the penultimate hole, notable holes at Raccoon Valley include the par-4 eighth, which requires a 220-yard carry, and the 11th, a par 3 that plays over a lake to a two-tiered green guarded by a bunker.

Maintenance Needed

Course has been neglected for some time now. Rough is too long, the greens need swept off in the mornings and the sand traps have no sand. What's left of the cart paths are in horrible condition.

Terrible Course

Conditions are aweful. Greens look like they’ve been used as a range with multiple divots on almost every hole. Fairways are full of puddles and mud. There’s almost no cart path so you have to drive around these huge puddles. Very confusing where some of the holes are. Wouldn’t recommend.

Rude Lying Staff

Had a tee time for 11:12 showed up and called because they were somehow closing the course when the sky was clear. They told us that tee times were moved to 12 for us, So we waited for an hour in the parking lot and showed up at 12 and they tell us that they were “reassessing” at 12 which was a lie. This wasn’t said on the phone. Won’t be back here waited an hour for nothing and drove a hour wasting gas. Won’t be recommending this course to any friends and won’t be back.

Great layout

This can be a beautiful golf course as it was 30-40 years ago. I know the new highway changed things. Hopefully with the county growing things will change to make this nice again

Awful course and wasn’t mowed. Tee boxes had taller grass than the fairways.

Pace of play was horrible and conditions were atrocious. Grass was so high we were losing balls greens are thick and slow. It was only 14$ so I got what I paid for

Poor Course Conditions. Waste of money.

This course needs to close it doors because the current set up is stealing money from players. The rough had not been cut and was to the point of myself and other players losing balls just off the fairway. The fairways had large sections with uncut grass that was rough length. The greens were like putting on fairway length and had numerous bare spots and fungus throughout.

Bad golfing experience

All of the photos of this course are well outdated. Some fairways have clearly not been mowed in a week, greens have been horribly maintained. No yardage markers. Yardages on scorecard clearly not correct. Pace of play not kept at all, it took me around 3 hours to play the front 9. Overall awful experience and I won’t be playing this course again.

First time

The course was in good shape considering coming out of winter. The staff was friendly and very helpful. We played with some really nice folks. The course layout was enjoyable. Great value for the dollar. We will definitely play again.

To wet

Course needs to be dried out, way to wet to be playing on. I think maybe 5 holes where number out of 18. Bathrooms could use a good cleaning too. It’s course I’d take friends to get drunk and play golf.
