Great Course

Best course in the area, no doubt. Very challenging off the tee, fairways are mint and the transition from fringe to green are immaculate and the greens often roll very true.

Not for the beginning golfer

Usually play here 1-2 times a year. I am a 14 handicap and the course is extremely tough. You can lose a lot of balls. Some holes, I feel are extremely penal bordering on unplayable. PLAY THE RIGHT TEES ! The greens are well kept but have many undulations and are large. Lots of forced carries. Great patio overlooking the 18th hole. getting the right yardage is important. If you are up for a challenge this is the course for you. if you cannot break 100 I would suggest there are easier courses in the area to play.

A Tough Course with Quick Greens

The wind was a little blustery today making a tough course even tougher. The greens were very quick...quicker than they need to be for the casual golfer. Some of the pins were in "Sunday placements" making it very tough to hold the putts on some holes. Maybe it's just me, but I want to have fun while being challenged...not frustrated! Also, raking the traps in the mornings ONCE, is not too much to ask for...or get rid of them...it has become an excuse now. Lastly, $7 for a roast beef sandwich should include more than 1 slice of roast beef! Wanted to stay for dinner, but sadly, only sandwiches and bbq fare available. Sorry, won't be rushing back.

Good but a little odd

Long course, need to be able to have all of your shots in your bag. A lot of high to low shots and vice versa. Make sure you play the proper tees, I’m a scratch player and struggle to shoot par from the blues tee. The 20+ mph wind didn’t help. The back nine is a bit confusing, I seemed to get turned around. Great staff the course was in tip top shape.

Good challenging course

Haven't played this course for a number of years. Stopped playing as the course wasn't being maintained properly and was in lousy shape and not worth the 1 hour drive and considering the conditions it wasn't worth the money. The course is in a lot better condition than back then and now makes it worth while to play. Better keep your ball in the fairways here as the fescue is pretty gnarly. I find the back nine is more challenging and tougher than the front. Overall is was a perfect day, the greens were fast the course condition was good. Pace of play was a little slower than most courses partly because of the rough. My main complaint would be the older style carts they have. Ours was pretty stubborn get get going from a stand still but were fine once we got going. They really need to upgrade their carts.

Great value and challenge

Terrific golf course with many many blind shots. If I were to make one suggestion it would be providing more information on the layout and better yardage markers along the way.

Way Overrated

People in this area are fooled by his pretty course. There is nothing with as impressive vistas around. Three of the four par-5s are virtually identical. Long and curvy with a lot of trouble in the mandatory layup area. The fourth is the 18th. A semi-circular hole that is ridiculous. The par-3s are awful. Two are played, then the players drive back into the line of fire. I was hit once the first time the course. Cart was hit during the same round. The other two par-3s are unplayable. One is unholdable due to the severe front to back slope. The other has such a narrow green that players frequently chip back and forth until they give up.

The par-4s are very good, other than the 9th. They are varied in length and have doglegs in both directions.

The course is unwalkable with numerous long rides between holes. The long fescue really slows play. It is unfortunate that the layout is so poor, as the property has interesting natural land forms. If in the area play Tarandowah, Craigowan or Innerkip Highlands. All are vastly better.

Worth the drive

The course is in great condition and pace of play is monitored. Nice to have pop up snack stop instead of snack cart driving around the course. It helps with speed of play.
