Ok course, but way overpriced

The course itself is fine and was in good enough shape, but you can play way nicer courses for less money. Everything except the actual course is way below average… most of the on course restrooms are either closed or falling apart, the pace of play was very slow, we saw the beverage cart 1 time in a 5+ hour round and several other things made it a very underwhelming experience. Despite the steep cost to play, the course is getting worse every year, as are the facilities. Skip it.

Disappointed

Hadn’t played here for several years and was sorry to see how much it had deteriorated. Used to be a solid 4-borderline 5 star track. No more.
Still has many positives. Interesting layout, even though the fescue gets ridiculously close to fairways and greens in some spots. Fairways in generally good shape, although there are several with burned-out patches. Greens are a little slow but smooth and putt true.
On the negative side, the cart paths are horrible— should have been replaced years ago. It’s a walkable course and you’re better served keeping off the crumbling asphalt. Nice practice area if they only had decent grass. On course restrooms and water fountains not operating.
Due to special pricing and GN discount I only paid $50–about right for the conditions. Hope they sink some money into it and restore it to its former state.

Way Overpriced, Needs better range and cart paths.

The course itself, I’m a big fan when it’s in decent shape. However, if you pay anything over $80, you’re not getting any value. This course needs to charge $60-80 and then you’d have value. Cart paths are horrible and I’m shocked that no repairs to the paths have been made in the last few years. The range grass is awful, not worth ever buying a bucket. The practice greens are nice though.

Major Disappointment

Early morning tee time should not result in a five hour round. Waited on every shot, two groups ahead of us on the tenth tee. After every hole the cart warned us we were behind pace and would be asked to jump ahead by a marshal, but no marshal was ever seen to address the slow play ahead of us. Cart paths should have been replaced five years ago and are borderline undriveable. Toilet at the half way house was backed up. Could not stand on any tee box without my feet resting in old divots. Beverage cart didn't arrive until after 11 am.

Can not adequately express my anger at the low quality of the experience given the price. Likely my last round at Harborside.
