Fun course, curious start

Course was great, fun to play. Weird that we had an almost hour and a half frost delay, despite only dew being on the practice green. From Wisconsin maybe we are different.

Great course in the city!!

This was my first time playing this course and I am looking forward to the next time! If you can hit it straight then you can play this course! I liked the fact that it was challenging and also could help me choose my club selection better for the future so that I know yardage.

Hillcrest

Enjoyed the course overall. Nice bunkers but need to be raked by course and players. Appreciate the paved cart path but needs repair in some places.

Hillcrest GC

Always enjoy playing the course but late fall w/ all the leaves down is brutal. They do a decent job blowing them off but you still lose balls & that’s on the fairway. Gone for sure off the fairway.

Unplayable

Played 4 holes and lost 8 balls because so many leaves on course. Most courses at-least blow leaves off of fairway and main rough but Hillcrest did nothing. Normally this is a great course but was disappointed in lack of effort to fix conditions. I did get a free round credited to me through 2022 however which was nice.

Perfect weather
Used cart

Great late fall golf

I played a round the second week of November and the weather was perfect. I love the layout of this course. The greens were in great shape for this time of year. The only challenge was the leaves on the ground made it difficult at times to find your ball if you missed the fairway.
