Course is short, less than 6000 yards, but mature pines and other trees line most holes. So accuracy off the tee is a must. Course in very good condition.

I enjoyed the round. First time to play. Pace was a little slow. Started on the back 9. By 14, we had caught the high schoolers that were playing 9 holes to qualify for this years' team. A little slow from there through 18 but good pace thereafter.

The course is very well manicured, attractive, clean layout and heavily tree'd. It is also very short. A little under 6,000 from the tips. This would frustrate a long hitter. Or maybe not. 4-6 of the holes are, or are very nearly drivable. Not necessarily a problem but could slow play if it was busy.

Probably wouldn't go back because of the shortness of the course but everything else was very nice! No other issues whatsoever!

P.S. great food and cold beer at the restaurant!

Was told by numerous people this was a great course in the area. Came out to the course as a single and joined a group. Started at 3pm, threesome. Course is incredibly short which you can see from the card. Fairways were in good shape, greens were incredibly slow. Pace of play was 5.5 hours.... We ran out of daylight on the course. Best thing about this course is the restaurant, CaddyShack and the friends I met at the bar. Shot a 34, so this review does not come from playing poorly. I would not recommend to any serious golfer, and will not be returning. If you are visiting and want a good place to place, I would head to Royal Manchester, Iron valley or Daulphin Highlands. Cheers

You can't bomb your way around here. Sometimes it might be better to leave the driver in the bag. A fairly 'tight' course, but there is room to work the ball. Each hole tells you how it needs to be played. Sometimes, that might be a draw off the tee, other times, a nice cut will put you in the best position to go at the well-guarded greens. A good mix of left-to-right and right-to-left holes, many with subtle elevation changes. This is definitely a course that rewards restraint, and local knowledge. You'll play better here on your second and third rounds than you do the first time out. Excellent course conditions, especially considering how much play this course gets. The greens are especially well-maintained, with a medium-fast speed and very true roll. A great value, too, especially on GolfNow Hot Deal rates.

Myself and my partner were paired up on a Wednesday afternoon with another pair to "make the round seem faster". There was a foursome ahead of us consisting of a course employee who the ranger passed multiple times and didn't ask to speed up play of let our group play through. The round lasted almost 5 hours on one of the shortest courses in the area. There wasn't another group ahead of this foursome for about 4 or 5 holes by the end of the round. Poor on-course management yesterday. The course itself was in good shape and typically Armitage is a fun course to play. The restaurant/bar (Caddie Shack) is always a good time too.

Good course, clubhouse facilities dated and tired. Salad at caddy shack restaurant fair ..you can probably find a better place to eat. Greens were airrated and did not role true, they were hard , not good at holding a ball. Speed was inconsistent.

I had a nice day and for 12 bucks wasnt expecting a perfect condition. It is just spring so maybe the greens will improve. Fairways were good some tee boxes not good. One was so narrow all i could getwas an up hill lie.

I have been playing this course since the mid 90's and it has continued to get better each year. With trees being removed, additional cart paths being added, with having the bunkers being renovated the course has gone through marked improvements over the years. The fairways are tight and tree lined, if you don't drive the ball at least fairly straight, you could be in for a long day. The course is on the short side compared to most, is only approx. 6000 yards from the back/blue tees. The greens overall are on the smallish side, but are fair and usually roll fine. The course is rarely in anything but very good condition, it can be challenging on a few tee boxes to find a level stance. The practice area is adequate, you can use the putting green or the mini driving range, but cannot hit woods on the range due to it's size. Overall, the staff is courteous and professional and it's always fun to have an after round beverage and food at the Caddy Shack Restaurant.

OK, It was Father's Day, and that may have been a factor. But play was really, really slow from five to eighteen. PAINFULLY slow.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The starter paired my wife and I with a father and daughter. My wife really appreciated that.

The tees and fairways are shopworn, but play wasn't affected. Greens are outstanding! Putts run true, and approach shots easily stay on the putting surface.

Outstanding practice green and driving range for short irons.
