Cart path only
When you book your time if they know they’re going to be cartpath only I should let you know that at a time. Plus the cart paths here haven’t been repaved since 1982 horrible condition
Grass needs to be cut loosing balls in the first cut. Also leaves need to be blown off the fair ways other wise great course.
Wet, but playable
They had rain the night before, and some areas of the course were soggy. Had one ball plug in the fairway. Greens were a little slow.
Love this course.
Excellent lay out. Very fair. Need all the shots to get around here. Always enjoy playing this Fazio design. I'll be back...
Overall the course was very nice. Fairways were in great shape considering it was very very wet from the rain the night prior. Really good course, I enjoyed my round.
First time playing here
We wanted to try a course that where we never played before today. We were not disappointed. The course has some challenging holes,, but plays fairly. We will be coming back to play here.
Balmoral Woods Golf Course
Balmoral Woods is a great golf course to challenge yourself. The fairways are tight and some greens play uphill and some play downhill. My only comment is that the women tea boxes need to be repaired and treat it because they were in terrible condition.
George our day, great course, excellent value!
Primo-quality weather was the backdrop for a great day at Balmoral Woods. Pace was quick with well-spaces groups. Course has a great layout, especially noteworthy are #7 downhill left dogleg par 5, #12 similarly configured par 5, #13 long par 3 over the deep valley/creek, and #16 short par 3 over a pond. All-in-all, it’s a great layout with a great variety. Recommendations for the course management: 1) cart paths are becoming nearly unserviceable in spots - they need fixing; 2) more than a couple greens show considerable stress and need help. Overall though, the course is green and well manicured.
Well-located halfway house accessible from the #8 and #13 greens. Nice hot dogs and good selection of beverages.
Nice, hard course.
Course was fun/challenging. Greens moved. Tee boxes were a mess. Often not on flat ground
Beautiful course, SLOW play
What starts off with a bit of a whimper on the first couple holes really turns into some of the most interesting holes around. Very cool use of elevation change on many of the later holes, winding through a really nice wooded area. The course was very well kept too. The rough was short enough to make finding stray balls very easy.
The layout can be a little confusing in areas, and can use a little more direction signage.
The main issue I had was the pace of play. I was there midday on a Tuesday. and there was a foursome, backed up by a foursome, that was backed up by another foursome. No starters or rangers when I was there. The groups were seemingly careless about the amount of time they were taking on holes, or the fact that others were waiting behind.
With a ranger keeping pace, this is a 5 star course.
Courses are generally not easy for average level golfers. Slopes are not easy to manage and too many.
