Have played here a few times and always enjoyed it. The greens were in very good shape and there is a good variety of holes. Not a fan of 2 of the par 5"S. Number 6 which is a 90 degree dogleg and number 10 which you have to lay up off the tee with a hybrid. Pace of play was good and the course is challenging enough

I have played this course several times before and always have had a pleasurable experience. This time I played with a friend and it was a very bad golfing experience. Got through the first 9 mid afternoon (with sprinklers going on some greens which were kindly shut off per phone call). However, without any warning before the round or without proper tie round management via golfnow and tee times, a league was sent out on hole 10 and hole 1. As we were finishing hole 8, about 10 golf carts rolled up to hole 10 right in front of us for the league, all teeing off right after each other Inquired with the club house and were told to hop ahead of them and double back. Well the course got crowded and we didnt even get to play some of the holes. The young lady at the clubhouse was great with explaining this to us and I understood it was out of her hands. She did say there were leagues about every day as well. Operations and management should be aware of when they schedule tee times in regards to time with leagues affecting other paying customers' play. Young lady was great in partially refunding our round, but I just wanted to let her know how much this affected our round of golf. Always enjoyed the course but after this, I may not mess with it again.

This course is in great shape, the layout gives you some shots to think about, greens can challenge you with difficult pin locations. We had a great day for golf weather, good group of people. Will play this course again several times, should be on your list.

I played this course numerous time since I grew up in the area. You get what you pay for. As long as you book your round through GolfNow you won't be disappointed in the value received for your money. There's nothing particularly remarkable about this course; nothing about the course will leave a lasting memory. Fun course to play when you want to play golf.

Tee to green in excellent shape! A couple of the traps need to be cleaned up & raked, small stones, but not that bad. Balls checked up on the greens very well, good thing because some of the greens are huge. The greens putted true and very fast! Big hitters off the tee can reach a couple of the par fours with their drive. Good driving range, did'nt get there early enough to use it. The practice green was the same condition as the course greens, making it easy to figure out speeds on course. I did'nt rate off- course amenities as we left right after our round. The staff was extemely friendly and knowledgeable! I will definitely come back and play this course again.

Perfect day for golf. I've played Raceway a couple of times a year for about 5 years. During that time the conditions of the course have really improved. The fairways and greens are excellent. Tee boxes are in good shape but a few of them are odd angles or a little narrow. One of them has a tree just to left that can be in play. There is an excellent variety of holes and a great practice area. The food is really good. I plan to play there much more frequently this year.

The golf course is literally side by side touching a race track. We had a tee time at 10:52 and the cars started racing or qualifying at 11:00 and kept racing throuought the day! You could not concentrate, focus, or even TALK to the people you were playing golf with! The noise was so loud my ears were ringing for hours after the round..We kept hoping they would stop at any minute but they did not. There was a marshal at the third hole who laughed and said sorry about the noise. My nerves were shot, my ears were ringing, and we were all glad the round was over. No warning from the pro shop or anyone about the cars, just a sarcastic remark from the marshal. I cannot believe the course management would let anyone golf with race cars zooming around a track only a stones throw away. Very dissapointing.

Hello Al, thank you for taking the time to review our course. We are sorry to hear that the race track took away from your golf experience. Unfortunately that does interfere with the golf atmosphere every now and then. However, we are glad to see that our conditions and layout were to your enjoyment. We hope to see you back soon at Raceway Golf Club.

Hello

Thank you for sharing your experience. We apologize for the noise produced by the track during your visit. While we are adjacent to the track and have been so since we began, this weekend was a bit louder as it happened to be the Vintage Motorsports Festival, and those cars are a bit ... louder. Most days the sound of race cars is in the background, particularly on weekends, but for some it's an unexpected experience.

We'd love to have you back as our guest at a time that works well for you! We also have two other courses you can play at if you prefer. They are not adjacent to a race track! Please email me and we can coordinate your next visit: steve@tristategolfcompany.com.

The course itself is in excellent condition. It had rained for almost a week and a half before we went. The course was obviously soaked but it was in great condition, just had to club up. Excellent value for the course. Refreshment stand between the 11th and 12th is great. An awesome lunch included in already one of the more affordable rounds in the area. Going back many times this year.
