#1 Worst FPG Course

Easily in the worst condition out of all the FPG courses. Greens were like shag carpet, holes were trampled/funneled which tells me they haven't been moved in ages. Tee box grass was longer than fairway should be and torn to shreds / muddy. Nearly impossible to tell what's fairway vs rough. $45 weekend rate w/ cart... wouldn't even pay $20 to golf here again. Likely won't be back! Staff was great though.

Course operator here. Thanks for playing Burnham Woods, and for taking the time to give us some feedback. We'll take a closer look at course conditions and make some adjustments to speed up greens, freshen the cups. We pride ourselves on the value of a round, so your feedback helps us raise our game. Hope we'll see you again soon.

Very Disappointed

I had no idea the greens where being worked on until I arrived at the course after driving about one hour. I played only due to the long drive and had to do the front nine twice. I will not go back ever again.

Great learning course

If you are just hacking around and enjoy the game this is a friendly course . Not too many hard challenges like water or sandtraps. Nice long par 4 and 5 to work on distance. Very green and well maintained. Greens are small usable as a good traget.

Wonderful Old School Greens

Course is a great walking course. The original greens are the strength of the course and a blast to putt on!

Don’t play here

If you advertise that your golf course is open for play, then I assume that means there is still staff cleaning up the course. Couldn’t find my ball even in the fairway.
