Pace

It would be nice if they had someone going through the course keeping the PACE of play. Play can be EXTREMELY SLOW AT TIMES.

Challenging course

The low temperature and freezing fairway and green made the play somewhat challenging..

Split Rock Is Challenging

I tee'd off at 7AM in 42 degree weather. Just FYI but I like the cold so didn't really matter too much.

First time playing splitrock after playing pelham bay yesterday. It's very challenging. Fairways are narrow and unforgiving. Par 3's are deceptively short. The course was really made well. I love the challenge to be honest!

After the first 2 holes, I decided to only play with my irons because of how narrow it is. I absolutely loved it to be honest. It was fairly wet but that's probably due to the rain 3 days ago and the colder temperatures not letting it dry up.

Anyways... try it out. The price is reasonable as well.

Great Course

There are 2 courses you can choose from. I would do pelham because it is more open and the fairways are less narrow. Definitely try that first. This review is for the Pelham course, not splitrock which is the second course.

Splitrock is more narrow and challenging!

I tee'd off at 7 AM so it was a bit cold but the course was great. Love this course. Greens are kept well and so are the fairways. Even in december to my surprise. Carts could use an upgrade but not the worst. I definitely recommend it for the price.
