Excellent layout, fair rest of golf

The course is maintained very well. Course maintenance and pro shop/management personnel are very courteous.
The combination makes for an enjoyable golf round regardless of your score.

Nice Day for golf

Greens were bumpy and tee boxes very swallow. For March golf not bad. Little steep in price for March golf. No stater or rangee.

PACE OF PLAY

Had a 9 am tee time and it took nearly 6 hours to play. PACE OF PLAY! There is no reason for 6 hours on this course. Didn't even see a ranger and if there was one obviously wasn't doing their job. Shame the course is pretty nice and not too difficult. Cart service was around, but never managed to make it to our group. Will not play here again until they fix very basic problems.

On My Short List

This is the best value for your money among private courses. Course is in good condition. Great pace early (8a tee, 4 hr round); can get crowded midday. Great staff, very welcoming. Had my first eagle and tied my best score!

Nice Day for golf

The course is is in good shape. From the greens to the fairways and rough and traps.Greens were fast and true speed. So far one of the top golf courses on the east end.

Winter Golf

Swan Lake has been in great shape this whole winter. I have been able to play on a weekly basis though out. The staff are excellent and highly recommend finishing your round with a burger and a beer.

Great condition for March!

Course is in excellent condition for the amount of rain and cold nights we had through February. Tee boxes are clean and well groomed, and greens are surprisingly good....little fast....so watch the putts. Staff was friendly and had us all set up and out right away. Even the 5-some in front of us was moving well and letting 2 somes play through (gotta love winter golf groups). Can't wait to see how good this place looks come May.

Winter golf

The course is in great shape for February. The greens rolled very nice and after about 5 or 6 holes were receptive. It was like 35 degrees when I teed off so I didn’t expect much to hold the green.

Fore!

Let's start with the price. $60 for a round in the middle of January is ridiculous. The cups hadn't been moved in a few days and were swollen. Impossible to putt. For some reason they decided to switch the front and back 9. The first hole used to be great because it was a double fairway that allowed people of all skill levels to hit driver and get some early confidence. It was a five hour round, so it certainly didn't help pace of play. You used to have to drive past the BBQ grill to get to 10th tee. Now you don't have to. It's going to cost them thousands of dollars in concessions. Good move guys!
