Don't get me wrong. I love your course, and will be back soon. I've played my last 2 rounds at Laurel, but unfortunately my Sunday round was my slowest of the year out of 50 rounds played this year. 5 hrs & 6 minutes, and more than a half a dozen balls lost right off the fairway in piles of leaves.

Good course. Front 9 is a bit easier for walking and be ready for some hills in the back 9.

Nice course

They are clearly working on updating the bunkers, but they still need work. Otherwise beautiful course, the greens and fairways are in great condition, and an overall fun place to play. Tough to walk the back 9 holes, very hilly, but the front 9 walking was nice. We were not able to finish 18 because of daylight, I think at the time we went out 18 should have been a discounted price.

Hidden Gem of a Course

This is my second time playing Laurel View on a beautiful fall day. Course was in overall good condition - fairways were healthy and lush, greens were also healthy except for unfixed ball marks which is just poor golfer edicate. Course was busy, but not overly crowded and good pace. Cart paths are very rough in spots. Few lost balls due to lots of leaves on the fringes, but fairways and first cut of rough were cleared. Very good course for the $$$.

Not worth the value for the price

Certain holes were very wet due to poor drainage. Booking the course the details were vague, the Hot Deal does not include cart. Would probably not play this course again.

Tournament scheduled during tee time

Clubhouse hard to find during renovations. They just let a senior tournament off on the front nine so I had to play the back nine. Catching up to them on the 11th hole was super slow so had to quit for the day.

Secluded Course

I’ve loved this course for years, but it wasn’t being maintained well. They have taken care of that issue and have really improved dramatically over the last 2 seasons. A great layout with no holes near streets or highways. A beautiful piece of land and a fun course to play!

Laurel View is in its way back

Massive changes have been made to the course in the past 2 years. Trees have been removed, opening up the layout, making it a little more forgiving. But it is still quite challenging. The greens are in excellent shape, as are the fairways. About half of the traps are renewed and good, the others need work. The cart paths are rough, but I say spent the money on the course first!

The facility is also being completely redone, and will be open for events next year

I highly recommend Laurel View, after a long period of it going downhill

Interesting golf course

A great golf course for the price. Fairways and greens were in great shape. Some fairways bunkers could have had a little more attention. But all and all, the course challenges you in many ways. Good use of sloping land, a few nice doglegs, water in play on a few shots. Even a really cool double green.
The only thing stopping me from giving this course a 5 star rating is the fairway bunkers, which maybe they are suppose to be more like a waste area? Really I wouldn't mind it, but it was confusing. Are they sand bunkers or not sand bunkers. Either way, very enjoyable round.
