Poor Man's Coyote Moon

I read Jim's review right before posting this and can agree with a lot of things he says, but all those things he wants comes with a price.

For $24 on Golf Now.com, I can't expect perfect conditions and a beverage cart girl. It's clear the course runs on a tight budget. The fairways are rock hard because they probably haven't been airified and top-dressed with sand twice a year like they should be if money was no object.

That being said, the layout is fun, beautiful and challenging for people who spray their tee shots. Apple Mountain is in a gorgeous setting, but lower your expectations because it was $25 not $125 that Coyote Moon would charge.

Wonderful weather and the right pace of the play.

It’s just like a beautiful fall weather with blue sky, a few white cloud patches floating, colorful falling leaves, chirping birds and running squirrels. Just beautiful scenery alone was worth of driving up some 56 miles to this mountain golf course. Reminded me of playing in the mountain courses in Georgia and Carolinas some 20 years ago. I didn’t get a good score and a single birdie because the greens were quite challenging with undulating surface with fast slope. The bunkers needed some raking and some areas of the fairways needed maintenance. The pro shop staff was very friendly and courteous. The course is quickly coming back to those good days for golfing of pre-Covid-19’s.

Great Da

It was tough to get to golf course with road construction & High season for Apple Hill, now fast way to get to golf course, played behind a slow group which made it somewhat frustrating. But, we got 18 in before sunset.

This is a bit out of the way but it’s a gorgeous course. Great staff. Nice breakfast and lunch restaurant. Hard to find anything better for the cost.

Great Course

This course is beautiful, but extremely
hard as it has a lot of trouble. You really
need to play it several times to score good.

Apple Mountain is in very good condition

I’ve played Apple Mountain quite a few times over the years but first time this year; the course was in very good shape. Greens were in great condition - a little bit slower than in the past which was a good thing. Like always staying in the fairway is paramount. Almost every hole has trouble; a tough course but can score well if you don’t lose many balls (that can be a big if). Gorgeous trees and scenery. Worth the drive.

Its closed and has been for years.

After making a tee time with you we drove to the location of the former Apple Mountain golf course and found an abandoned barn and former fairways with waist high weeds.
The place is closed.
Why do you still act like it is in business and accept teetimes?
