Good course but enjoyable for all levels of player

This course is now named Gettysburg National. This is a good course in that is is playable but also has some very good golf holes. The greens can be sneaky fast and are smooth. Having played after it first opened and coming back over timer the trees having definitely become a factor on many of the holes. Overall a solid course that is not too punishing.

Overall I like this course a lot

Overall, I like this course a lot. Good degree of difficulty and generally the course is in good conditions. In my mind the single thing that would make this a great course is level tee boxes. It is difficult to get a level spot no matter where you stand on most of the tee boxes. Otherwise this is a great course for the value

Ruined weekend.

GolfNow: My golfing partner and I arrived at the course to find there was a huge tournament and we were not allowed to play.
This was very upsetting since we both travelled a long way for a nice Gettysburg weekend to include golf on Saturday. I’m not sure how Golf Now could allow this to happen.

Gettysburg National aka Mountain View

05/28/2021
So this is mountain view golf course under new ownership. The new owners/ green keeper staff have done an excellent job on course renovation/maintenance.
Amenities
The new snack bar has 4 different beers on tap plus cans and full bar. Still have food and snacks.
Pro shop has all new towels and shirts great design and selection of gloves,balls,tees etc. Inside dining and patio is very nice.
Staff
Super friendly and courteous. Very approachable to talk to.
Course
Course was beautiful, new back nine layout is great. Fairways and ruff were greatly maintained. I will say only reason it didn’t get a 5 star is because the bunkers were hard and some had standing water in them. My Honest opinion, the gentlemen I talked to said they are on the list to make them better just haven’t gotten to the project yet.
Overall
You can’t beat the price for this semi challenging for $40/ cart included. Amazing Mountain View’s with wildlife all around.
Overall 5 stars and would recommend this course to anybody and everybody.

Why it’s not 5-star

No where does it show the layout of the hole. Unless you have played it a few times you never know what’s lingering around the corner. The scorecard and even the hole designation sign. shows nothing but the hole number and par.

The tee designation is confusing. They are marked with red, white, blue and gray. I will sat at most corses across the USA the standard three are Red-Ladies, White-Men, Blue-Low Handicap. Some places add Gold for Seniors. What is very weird is Gray-Low Handicap, Blue-Men’s, White-Seniors, Red-Ladies. Must be a blue-gray thing for the civil war.

None of these are deal breakers just notes but otherwise it is a place worth going to.

Very nice course

Booked through Golf Now, and when we arrived they didn't have any record of our reservation. Staff was very friendly and worked us in, as apparently the course will no longer be working with Golf Now. Pace of play was slow, as apparently when the course changed owners, they offered an amazing membership, and the course is always busy. It was still a beautiful day on the course, just wish it didn't take 4 1/2 hours to play.

Spring golf

After we were vaccinated for COVID we decided to take a road trip to Gettysburg from Maine. First visit. Checked for golf courses nearby and found Gettysburg National. What a great find. Course was fun and the price was right. Having beautiful weather also helped. A memorable experience.
