Good to practice your short game but that is ALL

Tee boxes were just mud with no grass,, greens were badly wet and no one fixed their marks, cups were extremely worn, as if no one moved them for weeks. Poor maintenance all around. Golf carts were horribly sad and out dated. No club house however people working there were nice. I think they had to be....

Honest Challenge in the Countryside

This solid executive course in Middletown should satisfy anyone who wants to play a nine in less than two hours while enjoying some suitable challenges along with pretty countryside vistas.

I’ve reviewed this a couple of times previously, so, here are five highlights for the uninitiated:

1) True to its name, Miner Hills is built into a couple of hillsides, which, though not huge, aren’t ‘minor’ either. This leaves good terrain for golf, but even more energy (and resistance to pars) comes from tree-lined fairways (a few of them narrow), well-placed bunkers, medium to smallish greens, a creek alongside the third, and enough problems around these putting surfaces to keep things lively. Your game will be challenged.

2) Hole seven, I would say, is the star attraction, a short but rugged four-par that climbs straight up the property’s central hillside. It’s a road hole that also features a couple of bunkers in the vicinity of the green, which is two-tiered and unlikely to be a barrel of laughs when your threesome or foursome is putting it.

3) Two other strong holes are the back-to-back duo of five and six, both par-3’s that play medium and long, respectively. The fifth green is the tougher of the two.

4) The rest of the holes are all good ones, and the routing gives you enough variety, contrast, and hole types--including three par-4’s--to hit most of the clubs in your bag if you wish. No pushover if you hope to shoot par, this track will also test your short game.

5) The environs are pleasant, scenic, and surprisingly quiet, given that you’re only what seems about a half mile from I-91. The woods are so dense, however, that I heard no sound from the highway whatsoever. Another plus is the attractive combination of both wild and cultivated flowers that appear around the layout.

I observed very good conditions around the course today. The greens were a bit faster than last time, falling just shy of medium speed. All things considered, this has to be called an excellent value.

Great Course, Great Price

8am tee time, got in a little early and was able to get on the course right away. This was my first time here. I got to play by myself which I enjoyed. Great course, great conditions and well maintained. Many paths but it flows in a direction that makes sense. Had a great time and it was priced well. Can’t wait to go back!

Family operated stillworks

Clean course ,simple layout,short game test. Had two holes where you can use a wood.No#7 best hole on course.various distances on the par threes
My only drawback would be hey should change the driving markers more frequently so your not hitting off bald areas..Well worth the money paid.

Excellent value for the money

While the course itself is on the shorter side (there are no par five holes), it was still an enjoyable and challenging experience.

What the course lacks in length, it makes up for in difficulty. Holes often require the player to execute a specific strategy in order to reach the green in regulation.

Once on the green, the player is rarely presented with a straight putt, which replaces some of the challenge lost by the shorter hole length.

All in all, the staff was extremely friendly and the course was in good condition. I would happily return in the future.

Great little course

The course plays at a par 30 for nine holes. Fairways and greens were in excellent shape. The only problems were the tee boxes ( uneven) and no coffee! But a great little 9 hole course! Plus the price was right! $23 w/cart!

9 holes worth playing through

Fun course and reasonably priced to play through for 18 holes , challenging but great practice for your irons and putter as the holes aren’t that long. Highly recommend

Gem of a course!

First time playing here. Really well maintained. Pretty course with some challenging holes. Played after the rain, so the course was wet, but in great shape. Definitely will play her again!

Hidden Challenge

Chose this course based off it having a range and being a 9 hole executive course. When I first looked at the scorecard, I thought it wouldn’t be as challenging but certainly had some creative and challenging holes. Course condition was great for being May 1st. Certainly hilly and may not be best for all to walk but will certainly get a workout walking.

Staff at club house window not very friendly at all. I had to ask for a Pencil And scorecard. Holes need better directions and signs.
