Mill Creek

Great test of golf from the blue tees. My only complaint was that the pace of play was slow, and it seemed like an extra 3-some cut in on the back nine. Other than that, beautiful golf course and quite challenging.

Swampy

I was happy to be able to play after we had about 4" of rain the previous day. Other than a few watery spots, the course was in pretty good shape all things considered. It was cart path only so the big challenge was trying to play to the "cart path" side of each hole to shorten the walk. We played along pretty well but it did take a bit longer having to walk across some fairways and in some cases not having the right selection of clubs for the distance (had to get creative a few times to avoid walking back to the cart for the right club). Some traps were still holding water and only one sloped green had a bit of water at the bottom of it. I was amazed so the drainage system was doing its job.

Great roll

The course is drying out with the lack of rain so expect a lot of roll (unless you get in the Heather). The greens are firm but will take spin and they are putting fast and true. I enjoyed the day even with a handful of 3 putt greens. Still some sand traps that need new sand but most traps around the greens have new sand. Some of the tees could use some more water as there are some where it is difficult to get a tee in ( mostly the par 3’s which require the tee to be sealed deep).

Under Construction

I’ve played Mill Creek many of times. One of my favorite courses.

I would have gave their amenities a higher rating, however, with the fire they suffered last season. Their kitchen, club house, and bar are all currently under repair.

Though, they did just upgrade all of their carts! No GPS still, however, new carts are always a good thing.

The greens were in good shape. The fairways were another story. Though, it’s understandable with their being next to no shade on the course, being a links course. The sun always burns the course up a little bit.

As always, the views are breath taking, even with it raining today. I can’t wait to see everything when it’s finished!

please play the correct tees for your game. you will enjoy the course more. If you keep your shots fairly straight you will be greatly rewarded here. Greens are rolling nicely. Find out the pin placement number so you can use the chartd on the cart to your full advantage. All flags are yellow so knowing pin placement for the day will save you some strokes. Get and Use the guidebook available at the pro shop.

Best greens in the area

The layout is definitely a tad quirky, but the conditions were awesome.

Guy in the shop explained about their recent fire, and all about the golf course. Greens were very quick, and some tricky hole locations.

Fairways were well maintained, and the rough was definitely punishing.

Bunkers could use some work, but overall this was a great golf course!

Cut The Grass

The greens were medium fast and cut nicely. The fairways were cut but could have been wider on some holes with already designed built in hazards. Grass way to long everywhere else, like playing water holes for entire 18.

Mill Creek is one of my favorites. The staff runs the course in a polished, but relaxed way. Very friendly. The course sits at the highest point in Monroe county so a lot of great views. A real quiet and peaceful setting.

Save Your Money

It appears that Mill Creek has fallen on hard times. I play this course a few times a year and unfortunately this will likely be my last for a while. It seems like they have given up on taking care of the course. The fairway on #8 had large patches of un mowed grass. How can you have 5” tall grass in patches on the middle of the fairways? It was not wet at all, and has not rained much lately so that excuse is out. All over the course it just appears they have given up. It was disheartening to see a course that was always fun to play, start to fall apart. Save your money and head elsewhere.

Mr. Hickey, Thank you for the review. I am sorry to hear that you had a less than enjoyable round. Due to the large amounts of rain this Spring we have only recently been able to get a good cut on this fairway and a couple others. We have been working on addressing these long patches of grass where our fairway mower is not able to get a cut. We are also in a transition phase as we are trying to grow out some native grasses in new areas of the golf course. We should start seeing better definition of these areas in the next week or so. I hope you are willing to come back and give us another chance in the next few weeks.
