Pilgrims

Only thing that would help would be to have GPS monitors in the carts. First time playing you have no idea where to shoot when you can’t see the flag/green .

Great golf in the middle of nowhere

If this course was located in closer proximity to major population areas it would be more well known, crowded, and costly...so, if you don't mind driving for an hour plus.....it's well worth the trip. The pro shop guys aren't the warmest and welcoming sort that you would find....but certainly not rude.
The starters on the other hand have always been really helpful. The course is always well maintained. The flow of the holes from "easy" opening hole, through short par 3s, to long par 5s (9 is a bear) is an ideal mix, often with hard holes followed by easier holes. Its a cliche, but your likely to use every club in your bag here...its not all grip it and rip it. Bring your "slope game" as there are frequent uneven lies. The finishing hole is really tough...I've scored par on it only once (I'm a 14 hdcp). It's a long tee shot to reach the fairway...and requires very careful shot management inorder to avoid water that snakes in and around the remaining shots approaching the green. If you want to hit some warm up balls...I'd recommend heading up the road toward Tanglewood (another very good and under rated course). Just before that course there is a good driving range. Enjoy.

Long hot summer

The weather and I’m sure the course itself has been hot. Signs of ware and tear are showing. A few boxes were thin on grass and could use a leveling. Greens fast.
Always well above average keeps me making the hour+ drive a few times a year. Can get an occasional deal here too. Recommend to anyone and everyone

Solid Track

I regularly played this course when I lived in Maryland and try to do so on trips to the area. From a course condition perspective, it remains above average. Many ball marks, but that’s public golf and bent greens in the summer. One disappointing change was that the greens fees no longer included range balls. When I played this course regularly, range balls were complementary and stack in the classic pyramid style. A nice touch for a public course that’s been replaced with a range ball machine. Also, the range is devoid of ANY targets. Just a green field. I don’t need an Augusta National practice facility, but would it really involve that much added maintenance if a few areas of the range were mowed shorter and a few flags were placed on these areas, especially since range balls are no longer free. Another oddity is that there’s no free water on the course. Instead, bottles of water are kept in coolers and available for 50 cents - although you can “unlock” the coolers and just take a bottle, if you’re so inclined (I was not and put $1 in the money slot for 2 bottles) - so the entire set up seems odd. Just do what most courses do and offer a few large thermos with cold water at a couple of tee boxes on each nine.

Like a fine wine...

I love this track!! Course conditions were stellar with "carpet like" fairways and fast greens. This seems to be one course where the majority of players actually fix their pitch marks. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the waste bunker on #14 has been replaced with 3 smaller circular bunkers with the best sand I have ever seen at that course. Now if they could just do that with ALL the bunkers...If you have never played Pilgrim's Oak, this is a "must play" course! You will not be disappointed.

Hidden Grm

The course is in great shape. It’s like 2 different courses with a open front and hilly back. The warm up area is wonderful. A grass tee box on the practice range , a separate chipping area including a bunker and a nice putting green.
The price was right as well. If this place wasn’t over an hour from home it would be in regular rotation but I’ll definitely be back.

Pilgrim Oaks

Very enjoyable round of golf. Drove 90 minutes to get out there, but it was well worth the long drive.

Traps were a little hit or miss, but not too bad. Their Tee Boxes were all un-level and crowned, the day we were there. GREAT value for a very nice course. I would make the long trek out there to play it again.
