This is a nice layout, although too much walking between holes. Course is in great shape. It was a little slow, but not sure why. Marshall was out. Got a good deal to play. Judy at the starter shed was great and dealt with a late group very well. Would recommend the course highly.

I had very high expectations of this course, since it recently hosted an LPGA event- but I was very disappointed with the condition of the greens- they were cut very long and slow and inconsistent

Got pretty excited on the putting green at the speed of the green, but so disappointed with the speed on the course. At least 2 slower on the Stimpmeter, baffling me into 3 x 3 putts on the front nine.

Played with two regulars. First time for us. Very windy and it swirl so much it seemed the wind was in our face 16 of the 18 holes. Condition was ok. It was evident the course had lots of play. Many divots ( they need divot mix on the carts) and the greens were full of ball marks. Even after mentioning it, the one guy we played with missed fixing a couple of ball marks.

The course is short. It seemed like a lot of the holes looked the same. Thought it was a bit overpriced. Staff was nice and welcoming. I guess if I lived in the area I would play it again but I don't and I won't make the drive to play it again.

We really enjoyed this course. Great condition layout is nice. Just a fun round of golf. The greens are slower than the practice green so be aware of that lol Staff was fantastic and one of the members joined us and helped us a great deal with how to play around the course for the first time. Will be playing here again next year!!

Wonderful day for golf. Course had one hole still affected by the flooding. Golf cart broke down on the forth hole. Tee blocks a little furry. None of that could bother us on a beautiful day in a wonderful track.

Grey silo is a well designed challenging but not boring golf course. Not really for beginners. Long walk from first green to second tee. Greens in good shape. Lack of Marshall moving slow players. You get what you pay for.

I am sure lots of courses were soggy after all the rain we are getting but I didn't know the course was basically under water a few weeks ago. There was damage to some cart paths, a couple of fairways were still cordoned off and discolored from the river overflow. The whole course was still soggy and wet. The greens were very slow. In the fairways, you almost had to pick the ball instead of taking a steak sized divot. Too bad I didn't know about the course conditions ahead of time.

Tough course if you're not playing from the fairway. Hitting off line puts you into the tall grass and chances of recovery are slim to none. Well placed bunkers add to the challenge. Nice course with a lot of wildlife. Make sure you stock up with anything you need from the pro-shop before heading out (balls) as you do not pass it again until you're done and it's a long ride!
