Great Day For Fall Golf

The greens were in really good shape, considering the time of year.. The tee boxes were well worn and no tee blocks to mark the spot to tee off from. Also hard to find the 100, 150, 200 yardage markers. I will definitely play this course again.

Very wet conditions

The course looks like it would play nice in good condition but in its current state is was a poor round. Shouldn't be charging full price for a round in its current state. Fairways are pretty beat up from carts making ruts

Wet but playable.

We played the course after some recent rainy days but the course played not bad. The fairways were cut so your ball was covered with grass clippings after every shot. Lift, clean and place was the order of the day for sure. They've widened most of the fairways by cutting the rough back which was a great idea to speed up play. The course still played ok. The greens however were the slowest I've played on all season and made putting more difficult but it is what it is. Like they say " a bad day of golf is still better than a goof day at work". They are trying to make the best of the wet conditions on all area courses with mother nature playing havoc on us. Good job.

Beautiful course

Great course overall, very beautiful and challenging. Very tight so you have to be able to shoot fairly straight. Pace of play was a little slow as there was 2 groups in front of us but nice weather made it a non issue. Have played the Old course at Knollwood (nice as well) but 1st time playing new course…will definitely return!

Undulating Golf

Elevation followed by undulation, sums up Knollwood New Course. Challenging holes, puts a priority on course management if you want to put up a good score. The greens are challenging and if you are not careful your birdie can become a bogie very quickly. Blind tee shots add to the challenge, you do need to know where to go.

They could use a driving range!

Knollwood New is a great place to practice you game, but not the place to warm up before a round.
There isn't any place for a driving range, but it would be lovely to add that to the course.

Won’t be back

I enjoy this course, but I’ve decided this was my last round. Knollwood New continues to be one of the only course that sends our people in twosomes and solos regardless of their tee time. Was very slow last time as many small groups were log jamming the course. This time, the starter let out two twosomes and a single ahead of us. I complained, and he says naw it’s running smoothly out there! With no marshall, this proved to be a major falsehood. Lots of unnecessary waiting. Lazy, careless starters need to be replaced!
