A very pleasant surprise
There's no drink cart. The carts are old, held together by duct tape, and the alignment is off. The cart paths are bumpy. A couple of the tee boxes are mostly dirt.
By a wide margin, the most important thing to me is pace of play. Everyone else in the county is on 7-8 minute tee time intervals. Faulkwood keeps theirs at 10. Your round will be 20-30% faster here. I went mid-week mid-day as a two-some and waited only on a couple holes. Done in just over 3 hours.
People scared me off from playing this course, giving horror stories about the conditions. Yes, there was ONE tee box where I had a hard time finding grass. But the greens were great, the rough wasn't too long, the fairways were exactly what you would expect. The course was long which made it fun since you get to hit driver on just about every Par 4 instead of laying up.
A few interesting holes. #7 is a tough green to hit - a bunker spans the front of the green and everything over the green will roll OB. A few doglegs, several greens have water in front of them, just about every green has sand in front.
This is exactly the kind of course that got me into golf and in the post-COVID area of packed courses trying to squeeze every penny out of you it was a breath of fresh air to find a course whose focus was on enjoyable golf instead of packing as many people on as possible.
Little pricey for course conditions.
Rough cart paths, bad tee boxes. Friendly staff and a good , challenging course layout!
Tough but fair
The course overall was in great condition and the staff was friendly and accommodating. The length makes use of all your clubs especially for me and we only played from the whites. Its still 6600 yards from those tees. The greens were in terrific shape but the slope and pin locations make them very challenging. It has a practice range and a putting green that closely matches the speed on the course- didn't help me much. The tee boxes and cart paths are in rough shape as the only real drawbacks. Highly recommended
Decent lay-out but the t boxes are absolutely atrocious. Fix that and its a pretty good track.
You get what you pay for... I've played this course many times throughout the years and not much has changed.
It's a tough track with no senior tees, and you will get many par 4's around 400 yards. Also, it seems a number of trees (now) could be removed to make this track easier. Greens were nice but it seemed like every tee box was a wreck / uneven.
