Awesome Staff

Fairway has several saturated areas and greens are fairly pitted. This average condition is super ceded by fantastic staffing. Clubhouse greets us with a smile. Jay (starter) really does his best to get us out at or before our tee time. Bartenders are always friendly and quick to serve their guests.

Thank you for leaving a review. We are sorry about the inconvenience caused by this. We have reached out to all of the major GPS manufactures and most have updated their routing but some only make infrequent updates to their maps. We hope this will be resolved by them soon.

Always a great time

It’s always a great time at birch hills no matter what you end up shooting. It’s great for beginners and is easily walkable. The driving ranch is nice but often closed for maintenance. The staff is phenomenal, everyone is friendly and enhance the experience. Pace of play is sometimes off and we end stacked on top of each other but not very often. Great course, great deal, great staff.

Thank you for leaving a 5-star review! Our driving range was closed recently for some improvements but is now open. We don't anticipate more closing of the range unless it is for our weekly driving range ball clean pick.

Good for the money

Played this afternoon with a buddy. Wanted to get a quick round in during the kids' nap time and this course was perfect. Finished in almost exactly 2 hours.

Great course. The layout is a little confusing, but easy to find your way with the signs. It's a fun par 3 course with some challenging holes. Lots of sand to swallow up your ball and some water to splash into. The staff was super friendly and made the round easy.

Overall it was a great experience and will definitely be going back.

Great value for the money

I played this course once and hope to play it again soon. I played in the afternoon and the pace of play was great. 18 holes walking in 3.5 hrs. The layout is good albeit a little confusing but it distributes the par 3 and 4s so it does not get monotonous. The club house is all the amenities and the cart fee is very reasonable if you want to get one. Most of all the greens are in good shape and the fairways are decent. Compared to all the executive courses I have been trying I have to give this one the highest marks for value. Highly recommend it for beginners.

Not Worth $20

What’s wrong:
- poor course mgt
- poor conditions
- cramped course layout

1) starter let a 6-some on ahead of us. Really? Also, course is in desperate need of at least two marshals.

2) beside general poor conditions, I’d like to highlight the green conditions. So many divots and geese poop EVERYWHERE.

3) even after the layout change, it’s still cramped. Holes are back to back and you have to watch out for getting hit from other holes.

Bottom line - play Brea Creek. Cheaper. Better.
