Granite Falls South is a nice course with a good layout. Greens were in pretty good shape considering how busy it is. The manager checked me in, there were 50+ people waiting to pay, however he was very friendly and helpful, nice to see since I wasn't a "local" community member. Pace was pretty slow. Other than that I would play again!!

Overall this was a fun round. Lots of water hazards. Played from the whites. Started on a shotgun start which was a little weird since we weren't told beforehand that that would be the case. Signed up through GolfNow and the staff didn't seem too pleased about that. I'm in my 30s and we were easily the youngest people there by at least 20 years (not a complaint, just an observation), and there was a TON of people, very busy course. The greens are huge and have a lot of ridges and slopes. Only gripe is we weren't provided an overhead view of any hole (nothing built into the cart and the cards only show greens) so we had a lot of blind tee shots that ended up in spots we should have avoided if we'd know they were there.

First, I booked on Golf Now and Paid them $33 towards our tee time. However, the course made us pay full price there and said Ehatvwe paid GN didn't matter. Then, they sandwiched a two-some in between 2 4-domes in a shotgun start. No notice that this was joe we'd be playing. Worst experience ever. Will never go back and will never recommend this course. Maybe you need to be 75+ to appreciate this pace of play and Way they play.

This course has a nice setup. The grass had been scalped getting ready for overseer. But the course was in good shape and challenging. I will definitely play here again.

Great staff! Played as a single and was paired up with three other players that was a joy to play with. Course was prepping for overseed so it was scalped all over. Still fun to play and I will return.

The course was preparing for overseed so the fairways were cut low... Overall a nice layout with a few interesting holes like a

250 yard par 4 with water on 3 sides. Nice wide fairways and some very large greens to hit to. All in all a nice experience.

The course was in good condition with nothing wrong. I guess we just picked a bad day because it seemed like hole after hole we were waiting on a lawn mover to get out of the way. There were a few holes where the tee markers weren't placed out on the tee box but we're just off to the side. The worst part was the guy in the pro shop. He tried charging me $39 after I booked off golfnow for $18!!! He was just rude the whole time and didn't like him.

I hit a few really bad pushes and still didn't leave the golf course on this wide layout. Homes are out of reach on most holes. Fairway turf was in good shape, greens were also good (running about 9). There are a few holes with water and bunkers that come into play off the tee but most holes are just straight and open. I hear the North course has more personality so I may try it the next time. All around a nice facility.
