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.

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.

The course was in excellent condition. Despite the wind and a couple of showers it was a fine Memorial Day outing on a good course. Score was a couple of strokes over handicap but expected for a 1st time course.

This course is in good shape going into the spring, greens were a little slow for our round, fairways are in great shape. Good layout gives you a variety of shots to play and challenges you.

I suggest you put this one on your list of courses to play.

Really enjoyed this course, a couple of narrow fairways.

I imagine that during the regular season, the course could be more challenging, however it is winter golf after all. The greens were frozen as well as all the ponds. Loved the way the ball bounced off the pond and landed on the green... LOL.

it also works the opposite way, lands on the green bounces and lands 40 yards away... LOL.

I'll be back next summer...

Loved the par 5 hole that does a complete U Turn.
