Course Review

I would like to have the opportunity to play this course again because when I played last Sunday the weather conditions were terrible. It was raining and cold the entire time, so if there is any chance ai could get a rain check that would be incredible. Only got to play 5 holes which I couldn’t even enjoy. I would like to play in the near future the entire course because I really liked the layout. Here is my number if you will give me the opportunity to play again.

Hills Galore

Loved my first time at galloping hills. It’s definitely a very hilly course but great for all skills.

Not worth the $$

The course was soaking wet and cart path only (not their fault)..I can accept that. Still, the course was not in good condition (aside from the water). There were inexperienced, rude golfers, extra riders in carts, overall a very lax atmosphere. Maybe we caught it on a bad day but it was certainly not worth what we paid.

R. O. I. Return on investment

Over crowded waiting on every hole. Due to small tee time windows. You pay to play 18 holes with a cart and your asked to return the cart after fifteen holes. So the help go home. Poorly managed! Not to mention no refreshments on the course. Distance is Poorly marked. Way overpriced, no value here.

Good Course That Need Remediation

This county course is impossible to book (even for county card holders like myself who get early access). The course is becoming more and more problematic when it comes to water issues. As an example, the 12th hole needs extensive environmental remediation-was once a typical par 4 but is now basically a long par 3. The cart path for this hole is so water logged that if you are walking, the staff needs to "ferry" you to the hole. Cart paths for holes 9&18 are slightly aquatic as well. Might want to dredge the lake that borders these holes.

Excellent layout, well maintained course

Everything is good except slow play, need ranger's supervision to avoid waiting 5 minutes in every hole.
