Golf Advisor: Top 25 Friendliest Courses in the U.S. (2021 #21)
2nd: Par-4, 393. First of three holes on the difficult “Cat’s Claw.” The green can’t be seen from the fairway’s landing zone. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/08/2021
3rd, par-4: Another tricky Tillinghast hole. The Cape design features this marshy hazard curving all the way from tee to green. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/08/2021
5th, par-5. The driving zone is relatively open, but your second may cross the stream and must be precise. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/08/2021
16, par-5, 498. Terrific hole that encourages you to slam a driver and another long club on the second. Hittable in two, for some. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/08/2021
18, par-5, 570. On the second shot, the fairway’s safe side is the right, which better opens up the green. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/08/2021
Another view of 18. As classic as the Tillinghast holes on the front side. Photo submitted by AptlyLinked on 08/08/2021

My new favorite course..what a great place and the staff treated us above and beyond!!
Like it's namesake this course is small but wilely. Playing from the tips is under 6200 yards but you need to drive it well. Several holes demand you to work the ball. Your approach shot has to be precise. The greens are on the small side. Overall the course was in good condition for the time of year. I didn't get a chance to stroke any practice putts and regret it. Took 5 holes to get the speed down-slower than they look. The staff was tremendous and made me feel like a member for the day. I'd play it again.
This course is one of my favorites in the area. Very nice lay out & from tee to green very fair yet challenging. High recommend. Charlie in the pro shop if GREAT! Very friendly & helpful.
Course was in great shape got a hot deal on golf now played another for 10 dollars so overall 30 for 27 holes pace of play was fantastic, weather was top 10 day and 19th hole was hopping.
Up and comming
This course was literally resurrected from near dead I haven’t played it in a few years because it was so bad.However ,I was hearing good things about it lately ... so I booked a tee time and I’m glad to say it’s recovered nicely . It’s obvious they put a lot of time and money into greens , bunkers ect The staff is friendly and professional as always .
I did run into a few members jumping around on holes and such , and thus ,some slow play (no ranger) but overall it wasn’t a deal breaker.. I’m glad for the principles and management. They’re nice folks .congrats !!!! Well done and good luck
Nice day of golf
Course is in good shape they are currently up grading the course and doing a lot of work on the course to make it even better. Staff is nice and friendly . Had a good time playing this course would recommend and play there again.
Getting better all the time
Wrote a review after my first visit here in August. I'm hooked. Great layout with far better than average conditions. Greens were aerated about 12 days ago and three days later, you could barely tell. I've never seen greens come back in such great shape so quickly. Charlie in the pro shop is the employee I'd wantto have run my course if I were fortunate enough to own one. Changing this to my home course next year for USGA handicapping. Make the trip, it's well worth it. And check out their VIP membership offer.
Well worth the trip
Traveled about 3/4 hour and will definitely play again. The course was perfect for the average golfer. The course was interesting and in good condition. Fairways were cut well and the greens were true and in great condition. Greens a bit slow and it took a couple of holes to adjust. Thoroughly enjoyed the round. Very minor negatives were cart paths and a couple of holes on the back nine were a bit difficult to find first time around.
Very Nice Course
My partner & I really enjoyed our round. The course is in really nice shape from the tee boxes; fairways to greens. Highly recommend the track. Only complaint was there is no water to be found. Other then that we had a great time.
Beautiful old course
Course was in good shape, fairways cut low and greens were true. Tee boxes were not very clean and we had a little confusion finding tee boxes on a couple of holes, but overall a very pleasant round,.
Worth the Drive
Very scenic, maintained well with good greens. Worth the drive. Very good prices for food and drink.
Enjoyed the course. Layout is a little confusing the first time around. The staff was very friendly .Enjoyed the day
Diamond in the roughh
Very nice layout..but the holes are a bit confusing
A Great Find
Bought a summer home in the Poconos and traveled the 20 miles to this course. Very friendly proshop staff. Explained the layout to me while I paid the fee. This course is a 10-15 handicapper's dream. You can be slightly off, but still save par. There's enough trouble, however, to keep you on your game. A real gem of a find.
Great layout! Improving the course everyday! Poor pace of play.
We played this course twice during our visit to the area. The layout is great with both narrow and wide open holes. Challenging course with high risk high reward holes. We played Sunday, July 30 and Friday, August 4. The amount of trees and bushes planted in a 5 day period was astoundishing. The design and shape of the course gets better each day. The greens and fairways are in great condition! The only negative is pace of play. No ranger on the course and we were behind a five some! We had to skip a few holes to get in front of them since they wouldn't let us play through. Our second time out we had to do the same thing with two very very slow four somes in front of us. If we waited behind them, we were looking at a 6+ hour round. Overall, friendly staff, great price, and excellent course! Hire a ranger and it would be a 5 star!
Needs some attention
This course looks like it could be a nice course but is not very well maintained. The fairways where almost as thick as the rough. Not sure why they don't mow more often.
fun to play
Course was in good shape and it was kind of fun trying to figure out where the next hole was. Signage was good though.
Dear Golfer, thank you for your feedback. It seems like you played the course right in the middle of a major turf renovation project that was being done this season. We have spent over $50,000 introducing a new hybrid turf to the fairways and we were not mowing as much as normal to avoid stress on the new turf. We hope if you return you will find conditions that would better match or possibly exceed your expectation. Sincerely, Team Lynx
