The executive-length course at Continental Golf Club is a popular choice due to the friendly staff, convenient location, and challenging game. The course features undulating greens that are in excellent shape, as is the entire course. Unique mounding surrounds the narrow fairways. A drainage ditch and two lakes also come into play on the golf course. The signature hole is the par-4 18th hole, which calls for not only a tee shot but also an approach shot over water. The course plays fast but it is still quite enjoyable. Continental Golf Club also has practice facilities including a large driving range, putting green, and practice green.

Take the Afternoon

This is a fun beginner course, so plan on an entire afternoon. For a Par 3-4 course, it shouldn’t take 4.5 hours to play a round but that’s what you get with this cheap short course.

Going downhill

31 December was definitely not a good day to play. It normally takes about 3 hours to play this course. Today it 2 hours and 30 minutes to play 9 holes. The greens are in good shape and on most holes there is decent grass within 30 yards of each hole. However, the remainder of the course is in terrible shape. The tee boxes have really deteriorated recently. Most have very little grass and most have a significant crown. Very disappointing when you can’t find a flat lie on a tee box. Can no longer recommend playing.

Play was very slow. Also impossible to hear announcements about groups who should be teeing off. Also there was a long wait for carts.

Course needs work

Have played Continental many times, but the owners have let the course go downhill. The tee boxes are all torn up, the greens need work.

They are making money with their rates and full tee sheets. They are not putting into course maintenance. It is still a fun course to play, but needs work.

Course is fun for beginners but the greens and tee pads could be better for the price of 18

Social Golf Course

Par three course gets a lot of play by beginners, which is fine but makes for slow play. It doesn’t help that there is no ranger. Greens are excellent except that no one repairs divots. Gone are the days when you received a course logo divot tool when you checked in; you were always reminded to repair divots and sometimes given a demonstration on a box of sod on the counter. It’s a great course if you like to drink beer and socialize without concern for your score.

Good beginner course.

Short course: 3073 from the forward tees and 3766 from the back tees, with 12 par 3's and 6 par 4's. Very open course and most holes do not have any bunkers. The greens are fairly small but in very good shape. The remainder of the course is in average shape. Hole 18 is a beautiful and challenging par with water in play from tee to green. Average round is about three hours.
This is an excellent course for golfers learning the game and also for younger golfers.
