We went out there on a Saturday morning and were pleasantly surprised at the condition of the course. Layout is tricky if you have never played it before, which it was all our first time. With some course knowledge, it is definitely scoreable. Lots of irons off the tee, greens rolled true, fairways extremely tight. Lots of OB right off the fairways.

Other than that I enjoyed the day. Good value on a Saturday morning. Be sure to hit the Tap Room after your round. Top notch restaurant and facilities.

Nice Enough Old Course Layout, If Bunkers had sand it would help. Greens just too slow for my taste.

The Price and overall condition get my recommendation.

Golf course was in great condition but there was not enough parking so I had to valet park which cost me extra money. Would have been ok except when I was finished with my round there was no Valet Attendant around. Had to wait about 20 minutes for someone to show so that I could retrieve my vehicle.

Really enjoyed my round at this historic gem...The course has a lot of character and demands some discipline not to pull the driver on many of the tight fairways.. I was paired with a local high school player,Jordan, who was a nice young man and talented golfer. The staff was friendly and welcoming and I will definitely return. Only negative, and this is knitpicking, was that the greens were in final stages of recovering from aeration and bunkers were hard and in need of some rake work.

This course has tighter fairways than most newer courses. It's a good, entertaining round, but you need to focus on staying in the fairway. It's built for club distances that existed in the 1920's, not todays long ball style.

Nothing but positive things to say about the golf course itself. The pace of play was terrible to say the least, some sort of smaller outing on a Saturday morning is crazy. People on the golf course that have no reason to be, not raking bunkers, taking divots (7 or more) out of tee boxes and not fixing a thing. Always a good day to play golf though, just frustrating seeing this done to the course.

Really enjoyed playing Dubsdread, you have to think your way round not just blast off the tee (or try to at least!) the course is in good shape both fairways and greens but it was busy when we played on Friday afternoon. We were held up on most holes but usually not for long. Well worth playing, there are tees to suit all levels.

Restaurant at the course is also very old but gets very busy.
