Fantasy Valley golf

Course needs a lot of tree trimming. On 17 the senior tee has branches overhanging that you clip in your backswing. on 16 any tee shot the is slightly left is going to hit a branch.

Course in Poor Shape

The course is not maintained at all and in very poor conditions. Practically the bunkers are like concrete and you cannot hit a ball out of them.

It was a tight course to start with and with the rough not being maintained, you either lose the ball easily or you end up hitting a bad shot from the thick rough.

Pay a little extra and play some of the other courses - you will be much happier, especially if you are only in Deep Creek Lake for a few days

They have moved around the holes so much that my Garmin could not keep up and never got a proper reading

worth the ride

While I live more than an hour away from this course, the ride there was definitely worth it. The course is challenging and it will require a variety of shots to score well. The conditions were excellent with the glaring exception of the sand traps (technically, they'd have to have SAND in them to call them that) but given all that the course offers, one could overlook that shortcoming. It is a good layout with some tight fairways. A good challenge.

Nice but very dry and in need of considerable tlc

I’m sure at one time this was a premier course but has fallen on some difficult times. The course is challenging and attractive but the fairways were arid and the greens inconsistently watered. Overall a good value and pace was excellent.

Great greens

Liked the course the fairways and greens were in great shape. The sand traps were bad so we just stayed out of them. We got a great deal on golf now so can’t complain about the price. I would play it again.

Overpriced

Very disappointed with the condition of a $70 course- Fantasy Valley. $24 for a 6 pack and the staff wasn’t the friendliest. Rough was extremely long everything else wasn’t taken care of. Would NOT come back

Not what it once was

The course and amenities are very dated. With the removal of a couple holes, it really made this course an eye sore for me. The sand traps were not taken care of at all and they are really starting to let it all go. The sheds need torn down all over the course. Greens were discolored but held true. The course is extremely narrow and greens are small if you are not an avid player, I would not recommend. Take at least a dozen balls as the rough is impossible to find anything right off the fairway. Just trending downward

Fantasy Valley

This course is very tight. If you have trouble keeping your ball in the fairway, you will have a long day searching for your golf ball. It is not a “forgiving” golf course. However, the greens were nice; fairways were nice but some holes were extremely difficult for the novice. It is not an easy course and is challenging. If you want to play an easy scoring course, this one is not for you.

Good for your buck!

This course was great for the price. However, some of the Par 3s seemed more like Par 4s. It could have been because of the wind that it was hard to get a good grasp on what club to use

Decent Course

Course was decent for the price. No real amenities to speak of other than the pro shop. Tee boxes were a bit rough here and there but overall the course was in good condition.
