staff is very friendly. The fairway are wide and well maintained. Not a hard course to play.

Only complains: a couple of the holes are very wet, kind of muddy. A few holes have incline slopes, so hard to find the balls after you hit them.

Nice course and in pretty good shape for a public course. Tee boxes and fairways are a bit chopped up in certain areas but doesn't really affect play. Greens are in good shape. Excellent course for the money especially a hot deal.

I've been playing this course for many years, I was not too happy playing 6 years ago, but since they invested a ton of money to restructure the fairways and the greens, I was impressed. the course is challenging but doable to experience and beginners. Now, I played this past Saturday and as for some players in front of me were complaining about slow play as you can imagine I was frustrated as well. I guess someone allowed a 6 person inexperience group play together. by the time we reached the 10th hole some decided to go home and some started the front 9 again, I decided to jump ahead to the 12th hole. I was not a happy camper, though I had fun the last seven holes,,

Tee time was for 9:30am. Didn't even get to check in until 10. Staff made some excuse about getting a men's club out, like that makes a difference. My car rental was due back at 4pm. You'd think 7 hours would be enough. It wasn't. Had to leave after hole 15. I won't be back.

So you know the course never charges the player for returning the golf cart late,, no such thing, slow play or time screw-up if is not your fault,,,

I have played this course over 50 times. The course is in good shape. The problem, and it is a massive problem, is that Silver Lake does not even attempt to run on time. The last time I was there, they had sold tee times beginning at 6am. Unfortunately, the sun doesn't rise until 6:45am. I had the 6:45am tee time. When I got to the course at 6:30am, there were 5 groups waiting to tee off. This is typical at Silver Lake. Additionally, Silver Lake routinely lets 5 people play in a single group, which further slows things down. This would be a really solid course if management made any effort to run it on time or to manage the pace of play. Unfortunately, they don't care.

Always nice coming back to the Lake where I spent many rounds playing this game. Caught sweet deal due to rain in the forecast and starting after an outing. First nine took 2 hours 40 minutes because I was playing behind two foursomes that were all at least 20+ handicappers. After the front, starter gave me the ok to replay the front to avoid slow play and finished in 1 hour and 45 minutes with my 2nd foursome. Course in decent shape but greens we're slow for Silver Lake standards. Always a great place to play and catch a meal afterwards.

Great walking layout but that caused a lot of "Fore!" calls. The green to tee and fairway to fairway distances is close. The course is not long playing 6300 yards (though many of the Tee boxes were up) from the back. The fairways are slim and lined with trees. The greens are moderately sized with some challenging contours.

The greens looked to be punched within the last few weeks. they were a decent speed but bumpy.

The pace of play was terrible. I had an eight 22 Tee time and did not get off until almost eight 45. Then waited around for a five hour round. Need to do something.
