Shadow Mountain

The course was in pretty good shape other than some of the tee boxes. Pace was okay but could have been faster. The starter kept us back to let the groups in front of us get ahead but we caught them on the third hole.
After that we waited on most holes but still completed the round in 3 and one half hours. The group in front of us probably finished 2 holes behind the group in front of them.

Hidden gem

A course designed and built when persimmon drivers and balata balsa were the height of golf technology is still a test of golf. Great fun

Shadow Mountain Golf

Have played here 4 times over two years. The course layout is moderately challenging and a good place to get your game warmed up if you haven’t played for a while. A number of the greens have a lot of slope to them, making two putts a real challenge, especially if you’re starting above the hole.

Shot shaping short course

Definitely a course you need to be accurate or you can lose a ton of balls. Most of the tee shots you can only hit the ball 200ish and then it dog legs. Not for the long hitters. House lined course where homes are pretty close to play.

An overlooked gem

Shadow Mountain is a very good course. It may get overlooked because of its age and length but it is a great track. Small fast greens lend themselves to real challenges if you don’t hit the green in regulation. Bottom line is I recommend it

Good Times

The course is in great shape. Greens are smooth and fast. Finished in under 3 hours. Layout can be a bit confusing first time through but it’s pretty well marked. A good value compared to other courses in the area.. We’re playing here again in a few days.
