Return to the Valley

Greens and fairways were good. Tee boxes were beat up badly. Signage was sparse. Very few ball cleaners. Still a good value because of decent prices.

Decent

Overall a pretty decent course. Semi-challenging layout, greens were in good condition as well as the fairways.
The previous reviewer‘s were correct in regards to very sparse yardage markers as well as golf cart paths conditions. It was much easier to drive on the grass then on the golf cart path as they had ruts and pretty sizable potholes. It caused major spillage of the coronas. Lol

Pay attention to reviews!

Paid $30 to play here. Many tee boxes weren’t even mowed. Some Tee signs were overcome by shrub growth. Layout was janky. pro shop Staff didn’t seem to know their job. Greens were fair and course was otherwise is decent condition but appeared not really cared for very well

$30 is the first point, as honestly and really playable course is worth $30. Having played here over the last 20 years I can tell you this review is off the mark, sometimes I think individuals are trying to chase people away to hog the hot deals, and almost anyone else will tell you the course is packed with paying paying $38 on Saturday and Sunday with no complaints.

Love this course for the hot deal I always get

Great course. Little challenging but nothing crazy. The 16th is one of my favorite holes in the area. Pace of play was a little slow for a Wednesday but overall great day as usual.

Despite the rude staff, we enjoyed our round.

The day started with a rude greeting from the staff. They charged us more then what we were quoted online (GolfNow). Again, could care less if we were there. The course is not bad but the front nine has a lot of holes that overlap so be careful. Course was in good shape and is challenging for a short course. Overall for the money, good value!

Deteriorating course

I’ve been playing here for seven or eight years and since the township took over it’s really deteriorated. So in 2021 we are left with weeds, unmaintained sand traps, poor (if at all) mowing, greens with ant hills and debris all over them, minimal irrigation, and grass on only about half of the tee boxes. A shell of its former self.
This course is worth $20 a round max and not worth more. A half full parking lot on a Sunday afternoon tells me that a lot of people have figured this out before I did. I now know and probably won’t be returning. So many better choices around.
