Worst mercer county course

Staff inside are not friendly and just have horrible attitudes.
There are always holes closed but you will still be charged full price even though 6 or 7 holes are closed. They have cicada killers all over the course in the fairways and around the greens. Only friendly person you will meet is the starter and he they always seem scared of the other staff, but they are the best worker there. Pace of play is always a problem because it is a beginners course. If you are looking to golf in mercer county or around there just go down the road to mercer oaks

Great Staff Rough Course

About what you’d expect from a public course around this time of year. In very rough shape but at $24 on a mid day hot deal I can’t complain. Everyone who works there is extremely friendly and helpful and they do a ton of stuff with kids which is great. And they have a driving range!

Nice course

Got a good price from Golf Now. Course is maintained well. The holes on the other side of the canal were a bit muddy from a recent storm. The starter said the were under water three days prior. Would play it again at a good price

Worst Golf Course in America

For a golf course calling itself a Country Club, this was an absolute joke. The fairways were ripped to shreds. 14-17 were cart path only and were basically underwater. 17 was utterly unplayable. Hot dogs from cart girl were ice cold. Not to mention there were these killer cicada hornets everywhere. They burrow underground and there were dirt mounds where they would nest. One of the holes they were so bad around the tee box we had to play from the blue tees. This course was so disappointing that they should’ve paid us to play it. For the price it was an absolute ripoff and I will never play there again.

Saturday golf

I overall like this course. Nice layout, greens slope in the front. The conditions in the back 4-5 holes are terrible. Very wet even when it hasn’t rained in a few days. A lot of sand in the fairways and lots of bugs. In the front 13 they have random hornet spots in different areas of the course/tee box. They have a great chef at the turn/19th hole. Highly suggest eating there.

Post Storm?

The back 9 were mostly unplayable. Why were 14, 15, 16 and 17 open? Not sure, but there was lots of water everywhere. Need new shoes.
