Fox Run Golf Links opened in 1984 but over the past two years the course underwent a major renovation that made the layout both more challenging for serious players but also more forgiving for the recreational golfer. The multi-million-dollar renovation included enhancements to the hole layouts, redesigning the bunkers, installing a new irrigation system, and creating new practice and chipping areas. Water comes into play often throughout the golf course and you'll find elevation changes on nearly every green. The water holes will be especially tough if you have a tendency to slice the ball. Thanks to the varied layout, which includes some holes that are wide open and others that are more target-style golf, you will get the opportunity to work on different types of shots. Fox Run Golf Links is a challenging but fair test that players of all skill levels can enjoy.

Good course

Grumpy staff. Got pushed the hole way even though there was no one behind us.

Great course - ranger was rude

The course is in great condition and most of the staff was pleasant - with the exception of the ranger who pulled up behind us with his cart while we were on the 9th hole and stared us down because we were 15 minutes behind pace. The group behind us wasn’t anywhere near us nor were they complaining and no one was on the tee box at the first hole. He was then talking to a group of people outside and made a comment to everyone about our pace of play. On top of that he forced us to skip the 10th hole. We do not plan on playing here again for that reason alone.

Great Value for the course

This is a simple course with a few challenging holes. The water on the back nine makes it tougher than the front. It’s a straight forward fairly easy course that plays very fast and is in great condition for the price. I will definitely go back for a mid week practice round.
