Great Value Course

Course was in pretty good shape. Another month of growth and will be very nice. Pace of play was slow as it took 5.5 hours to play 18.

Pleasantly Surprised

Greens were perfect, nice speed, not too fast and not too slow. Fairways were coming back nicely from the verti cut aeration. Surprisingly there was no groups in front or behind us at 9:45 am. The weather was great and we had a great time. We will be back.

Not worth it

Cheap round, but don't bother if you actually want to play. They packed groups in so tight we were constantly waiting. There was no marshall on the course either. Our tee time was at 3:30 and we did not even come close to finishing before sunset at 8:05

Great Day!

The course was in pretty good shape, especially for so early in the season. The weather was perfect! Sunny, breezy and not too hot.

Great day at Walden

Course played extremely well, considering they were punched and top dressed recently. Carts were cart path only and you see new grass growing in so that was understandable. Play slowed down on the back which is much tighter

Better than a few years ago

I have played here from time to time. More so for the convenience of the location, but while the course is a balance of challenging short holes and classic holes from a back-nine 1980's layout , the greens were firm and bumpy, which is what I would expect for a mid-March course at this time of the year.. Loved the sand traps. Kudos there to the maintenance staff. The biggest improvement I found from a few years ago , was the super reduction of Canadian Geese crap all over the fairways on the 4th, 5th and 6th hole. In the past, I dreaded these holes and there was NO WAY to not step in it or have your ball covered with it. This course requires more shot placement and less grip it 'n rip it. Some houses encroach and comes into play on a few holes but otherwise that is off-set with 2 elevated tee holes that are wide open & driver friendly. The 18th hole tee shot is over a pond and requires your best . Hopefully you'll have worked out all your issues before that, otherwise its the last impression of your day's efforts. Love the Par 3 11th hole. Enjoy. Recommend.

2 to a cart

It is very unfortunate that during the worsening pandemic Walden Golf Course has decided to go back to two people per cart. Be aware of that before you purchase green fees. Other than that not a bad place to spend a few hours playing golf.

Great Winter Round Tune-up

Course was in great shape considering how much it has rained recently. There was some standing water in the bunkers, but again it rained the last two days straight and was expected. Looking forward to getting back when it isn’t windy and sub-40.

Challenging layout, a good test of lateral dispersion and distance control, with more than a few risk/reward par 4’s, score-able par 3’s, and a stout uphill par 5 finish. Greens were rolling fairly well despite the rain.

Can’t comment on the food/amenities as a result of COVID-19 closures but the gentleman working the carts/starter was very friendly and helped me get going. Overall a very enjoyable golfing experience.
