The golf course at Stripe Show Golf Club (previously known as Freedom Golf Course) is a walker-friendly and affordable venue for juniors, beginners and experienced golfers in search of a pleasant round. The executive length course has a risk-and-reward layout for an interesting game. This course may be short but there are several challenging elements. Situated on a terrain of rolling hills, golfers can expect uneven lies and elevation changes adding some interesting elements to the course. Water hazards come into play on several holes and there are strategically placed sand bunkers present on the course as well. Stripe Show Golf Club is well maintained with plenty of nice, shady areas.

A work in progress

I spoke with one of the owners. He's got the right idea and I can see that the course could be great. My recommendation for repeat business, is to address the putting greens ASAP. No golfer wants to hit painted dirt! Fix that and you will grow your business. Additionally, Google maps sent us to the community college parking lot, off Dobson, rather than Alma School. The place has a TON of potential. It just needs TLC. I hope to be impressed next time I play it :)

Lots of potential

Come back to this picturesque little course in a year. It is under new ownership and a complete renovation is taking place after years of neglect. Mature trees, nice layout for a small, executive type 9 hole course.

Worth it

Let's be clear, this is not a top end course. But if you need work on your short irons, and have less then 2 hours to play, this is perfect.
I hope the grass comes in. I wish these guys the best

Neat Little Course on the Upswing

This was a nice slow pace course, great for beginners. While the condition of the course wasn't the greatest, it had been closed for quite some time and they are trying to restore.

Awesome staff

Enjoyed our round today! Chris, the owner is a super nice guy - had a great convo, talked about the history of the course, layout and anything else that would be helpful. They’re doing everything they can to fix up the course and make it playable. It’s challenging enough for anybody, there’s water on most of the holes and a lot of slopes leading to water. But great for beginners (my little cousins first round ever). We all enjoyed it and will be back.

Thanks Chris!

Amazing but needs work.

Amazing tree coverage and the tee boxes are not to bad and they stack broken tees next to the tee box markers so really never used my tees. Course was clean and I’m so excited to see it grow. Greens suck to be honest but considering where they started I can’t complain! They owner is a really nice guy and works the front counter! Over all very nice course and worth the time & money! Would recommend

Fun and challenging

An excellent target golf executive course to practice irons. The staff was super friendly and all tees were very clearly marked. You can tell the owners care about their golfers’ experience. The greens still need work but are better than many executive courses I’ve played. The facilities were very clean. I will come here often as a novice golfer. Loved it!

Irons practice

Course has seen better days but the new ownership is hard at work with renovations. In any case, the course provides an economical choice to work o n the short game.

This course is a terrific course to work on your irons. The course is in good shape. The greens are deceptively quick.
Fun short course.

No pressure course amazing for irons

This course is amazing and will be so nice very soon. It's a short executive with some fairly challenging holes given its such a small course. It was left to rot for a few years but it's getting a new life and I think it's awesome! Perfect for beginners or anyone who wants to hone their iron game. No holes I could safely hit my driver but so good for planning your route to the hole. The guys that run it are great and its definitely veteran friendly. I highly recommend as long as you're not a snob and understand its a work in progress you'll love it. Plan on playing weekly with my son who's learning.

It was in better condition than in past rounds. They still need to add sand to their sand traps. I hit a normal trap shot and hit the hard pack beneath. The fairways were in good shape. Tee boxes were excellent.
