Fall golf

I like the layout of the course a lot, as there are a fair number of holes that make you think beyond your driver without being gimmicky, and it's in a beautiful setting. They could have done a bit more to counteract the Fall Golf effects (had the greens been mowed this week, even?) but we were playing for reduced rates, so I'm not going to worry about that. I've marked them down because of the near total lack of attention to pandemic safety measures. Staff behind the desk, especially at the food counter, were unmasked and weren't even doing the "oh I just took it off for a minute" look of having one around their chin. There was also a table full of guys done with there round who has clearly finished their food and weren't wearing masks, either, and were just sitting inside talking. Anybody interested in minimizing the risk of taking Covid home to a vulnerable loved one should avoid this course, because they clearly don't much care about your well being.

Up North Golf but needs some TLC...

Certainly has to be one of the best courses in the metro area. Love the layout and beauty of the course. I have played here many times but this was the slowest round I have had, hopefully it was an anomaly. The greens were a little more beat up than usual also. They have new carts this year with very comfy seats but the suspension is so stiff the bumps rattle your teeth and the cart paths are brutal in some places. I still love this course but it needs a little TLC.

Super fun course

Awesome course. GPS on carts has helpful hints for approach shots and where to set it off the tee. Friendly staff, a little more expensive than some of the other courses in the area but very well maintained . Will definitely be back

Nice but slow

I will play it again but the course had noon scramble go off 1 hour before our tee time which we quickly caught up to. No mention of this when we reserved tee times. Almost 3 hour back nine. Also the seats on the carts are black, they were hot all day. Not very smart thinking on that one, black roofs too. LMAO. But the course is great, betterbe a good putter out here.

Always Enjoy

FIrst tee time off the box as a solo is always great.
Cold yet very playable. I only have one issue. Love 19-27 but can't play often unless you only want to play 9 or 36. Still the front side around the lake is a good trac. See you next year.

Great course

This course is huge. I love the open links. The course wraps around a lake. Which makes for beautiful views. Also the course is laid out so your not playing on top of other groups. Highly recommend this course.

Always Satisfied

Play here a number of times a year and it always in good shape. Staff is always accommodating and gets me off early if the box is open. Would like to see a turn house after the first nine. I learned to bring or buy a snack and water before your round. Great for wildlife and fall colors.

Wet course

This time of the year there is heavy dew in the early mornings. to make things more difficult the mower were working and grass clippings that stuck to everything. Worst conditions I've experienced at this course.
