Much improved!

Course conditions have improved drastically since early summer. Greens are excellent and fairways have grown back in quite well. It is nice to have a decent local course to play at a reasonable price. I will return.

Always Enjoy the challenge

Walden is one of my favorite courses to play because of how the course challenges my game. The tee boxes and rough are not it the best shape. The fairway is healing back up, but the greens are always in great shape. The regular staff at the course are very friendly.
On the particular round, the pace of play was the the worst I’ve ever experienced.
I’ll alway recommend this course to anyone looking for a challenging course to play.

Green Fees

It’s not just Walden but every time I book I pay more than the discounted price that you show on the email and when I asked, they said they were not aware of the discount from GOLFNOW.

Sad Experience

The course was in terrible shape. The fairways were bald and muddy. We were told to keep the carts off the fairways because they were just seeded. Too late as they let the fairways die before seeding. The tee boxes are full of weeds. To top it off a very large swastika was carved into the 10th green. Not a very pleasant experience.

It’s so hit or miss with this course in regards to course condition. Today was a miss. But there was no one there so it was a quick round.I played for a hot deal like $25. If I’d payed full price I definitely would have been more disappointed.

Worst fairways and greens

Not taken care of whatsoever. Muddy sand traps, dirt holes across all fairways, rough higher than you can imagine

Great for the money

They were kind enough to reduce fees. They are in the middle of air rading the course. Good course I would go back again.

Horrible conditions

Pace of play was horrible. 3 groups per hole.

Fairways were as high as the rough, IF there was even grass to place from. Dirt and grass spots on nearly every Fairways. Greens were bumpy. This was first time here in 2 years. Won't be back for a while, if at all.

Price is right

It’s close to home. Priced accordingly. Greens have been in great shape all summer. The course is just too tight. Rough is always overgrown. The course layout is just out dated

Times have changed

I use to love playing this course. 1-2 years ago it was always a go to. The layout is good. But the fairways are in terrible condition with dry spots everywhere and the fairways match the rough in length. The greens are destroyed. The bunker are a mix of over grown grass and mud. The Marshall was no where on the course to keep the pace of play. Also, you’d think a cart person would be out in August. Nope. I cannot say that at this point in time that I would recommend playing here nor will I never play here unless the conditions drastically change. I should’ve took the word of a 2.5 star rating. Wish now that I took pictures to share.

worst in The county?

This course could be so much better if they actually took good care of it. The fairways are the worst I’ve seen them in years, possibly ever. You can hit your best drive of the day and still lose the ball in mud/weeds. Although the course layout & greens are good, the other aspects of the course take most of the enjoyment out of it, such as the cart paths and bunkers and the weedy overgrown fairways. Sad to see how this course has so harshly declined over the last 20 years… maybe it’s ownership

One of my favorite courses

I have always been a fan of Walden CC, not because it’s in the best shape but because the layout is pretty challenging and the greens are ALWAYS in great shape. It is my firm belief that if you can play well at Walden you’ll be able to play well at most other courses. The staff at Walden are nice and friendly. I will definitely recommend the course to anyone that wants a good challenging layout and good greens.
