Slow

This was one of the slowest rounds I’ve ever played. In 4 hours me and one other were only able to complete 12 holes. It was a holiday. But still…

Wide Course with Long Holes

I like how this course has wide fairways and long holes. The pace of play can be slow at times, but not too bad. My only complaint over the years has been that the rough is really thick and high; wish they'd mow it to a shorter length.

First Time Playing

Terrible shape. Not worth the money.

Booked this course because I saw they had 27 holes. Paid $45 for 18 midday on a Saturday. The entire course is essentially dirt and weeds for fairways/rough. The greens are in decent shape but not great. Even if you hit the “fairway” there’s about a 90% chance you’ll have a dirt lie. Would not recommend.

Poor fairways

They have poor fairways, dirts and holes everywhere. Roughs are too high and thick. Greens are good though. We had foursome in front of us, they were too slow, and one of them kept spitting everywhere. Terrible manner in these days. I would not play here again.

Needs TLC

Played quite a few times and until I hear that the fairways are in better shape, I probably won’t return. The cost of the round pairs well with the conditions. Too many bare spots on the fair and the areas that have grass are weeds or overgrown. Greens were pretty good but a little bumpy and that would be golfer’s faults for not fixing divots! I always repair my divot and at least one other!
I used to like playing here even though it’s quite a drive for me. I would like to see it back in shape.

Fairways lookin rough.

I feel like the course is too expensive for the regular conditions. It should cost $40-$45.

The greens were decent, not great, but fairway conditions were patchy and inconsistent.

Easy and Fast and nice greens ... but Terrible Fairway Conditions!

This was the fastest I have ever played Whittier Narrows - 3-1/2 hours on a Saturday! We even had a 5-some playing in front of us "giving field lessons". Everything was great ... pace of play ... weather ... good greens ... except for the fairway conditions were terrible! But for $25 Hot Deal ... I'll do it any day again and again.
