Not a flat hole on this course

This is a very hilly track with some tricky undulating greens. I wouldn't say that it's worth paying full rack rate but, if you get a "hot deal" rate then you should definitely play it.
The outside staff was extremely friendly, however, the woman inside was not.

Travelling through and stopped for golf

It's a Palmer course so you know it is going to be a treat. The course was in great condition for spring golf. My beef is the directions for the course at the website is wrong and the link to Goggle maps in the confirmation email actually took us to a university parking lot down town. Finally got directions from someone who had the same problem. Told the pro at the course and he just blew it off. Guess everyone has to have the same experience.

Beautiful Day

First time playing this course and I must say it lives up to the hype. Great layout and not too punishing if you hit an errant shot. Really enjoyed playing this course!

Quitting Golf Now

I will never use the app again to book tee times due to your cancellation policy. There is no benefit of using the app versus calling the course. I recently booked a foursome with GolfNow and had a last minute cancellation due to illness. NO REFUNDS UNLESS THE COURSE IS CLOSED.

Awesome

We were fortunate that we were able to get out a little earlier than our tee time. Nobody in front of us so we were able to play at a nice pace without any delays.

Palmer Course 7/14/20

Was a wonderful day on the Palmer Course at Oglebay. Have played this course a number of times and love it every time. It is a great course with a really cool layout. It is challenging but playable. The conditions, even with how dry it has been, were great. Some of the greens were hard but that was to be expected with the weather we have had. We love this course and would HIGHLY recommend it to everyone.

Great course for a HOT DEAL

Course was in great shape for 90+F degree day ( we teed off at 140 pm). Staff was friendly, but Covid-19 rules played in their ease in helping customers. Greens were superb, with a variety of contours, shapes, and sizes. As a higher end public course, this is definitely worth the trip. Our thanks to all employees there, please continue to be safe in these trying times.

Excellent course

Stunning views and a very interesting course layout that also had safety in mind. I definitely had to use every club in my bag for this one.

Course is literally on a mountain. Lots of shots with ball above and below feet. Greens were fast but very narrow. (Hard to hold) some what of target golf. Played high school state golf tournament there so nice to relive memories but deff not worth the rate they charge for summer time play. $45 max!!
