Nice layout and pace of play
Greens conditions were good, perhaps the need to be rolled, but it has been very wet the last few weeks. Fairways and tees are starting to improve with the warmer weather. Overall, a nice course.
Great course. Nice layout.
It was a great day to play for a winter day. Low 50's, sunny & only a little breezy. Course in great condition for this time of the year. Greens were a little slow but were OK after you got the speed dialed in. Got behind a couple of slow four-somes so it was close to a 4-1/2 hour round. But, still had a nice time.
Fun layout , lots of doglegs . Greens rolled good considering it rained the night before we played. Always enjoy playing here.
Warning to golfers!
I’m writing this review to help golfers like me... visitors to the state who trust reviews on Golfnow and see 4+ stars for a course and so enthusiastically book a tee time. Well, for the second time in my Golfnow lifetime, I arrived at a course which was ranked 4.2 stars yet nowhere near deserving of its ranking, which once again proves why 5-star ranking systems are flawed.
This course is not a sculpted, completed course. Meaning, there’s no shape or refinement to it. The land is naturally hilly, in the basic sense, but looks as if no dozer was used, ever. And not in a good way. The course looks unfinished and seemingly has been maintained by high-schoolers.
The grass, inundated with weeds and mud spots, has simply been cut to different lengths to define fairways and greens instead of actually being built and designated as such. The bunkers are shallow sand-pools that children would be happy to play in... they look amateurish and serve as no real hazard. No aspect of the course is truly fulfilled in what it is. There’s no defined rough and no separation of grass-type between fairway and not-fairway.
The greens are alright, probably the best aspect of the course. But again, the grass is many different types and it’s obvious weeds are most of those types.
This course has been reviewed by locals or visitors with low expectations, and probably because its not a stuffy course and the staff are friendly, they have a gay old time and rank the course, in their limited experience, highly. It’s a wonderful practice ground for beginners of the game, old-timers (there are many) and non-fussy players who are content to have a field and a hole to smack a ball towards.
But heed my advice, don’t book a tee time here and expect a 4.2 star course. You’ll get a 3 star, backyard course.
Very nice course, great layout
One of the better courses in the area. Short but challenging. Very well maintained & great layout.
This was a great course and me and my wife love playing here.
First time playing the course. Just moved to the area from California. Perfect conditions to play in and the course was in great shape. I will definitely be back.
While not a long course, the greens have subtle breaks that easily lead to 3 putts. Fairways are in excellent shape. Greens roll very well. Rough around the greens is getting really thick and makes short chips very challenging. Lots of variation between holes - the par 3's are fairly challenging. Trap placement makes your approach shots really important. Traps are in pretty good condition. A very fun course that can trick you into a double bogey before you know it.
Good Course recommend it
Nice pleasant course in Maiden if I was staying in the area it might become my home course.
Great Course - Better Staff
This course is great for all experience levels. Personally I find a course like this one excellent because it’s hard to lose a ball if you have a bad hack. However the grass is well kept making it easy to find a consistent swing for the day. The staff is super friendly and engaged with their customers. The only thing is to make sure you call in your order to the clubhouse on hole #9.
Will play again!
A very friendly and welcoming staff is always a great way to start a golf day. The course is very well maintained for the price. It isn't very long but some dog legs, water, and tight fairways keep it challenging. I'll be back soon...
This is really a great course for the money. Greens are good, a little slow compared to what I’m used to. Fairways are great. They need to have water to drunk on the course, not one water jug on the course. But everything else was good.
Great course to play
Great conditions and great layout, very challeging and fun
Always a Pleasure
We never worry about conditions, pace of play, or staff friendliness. The back nine has some quirky holes, but that just adds to the enjoyment . Highly recommend.
Great value for the money
I am visiting from out of town and found this course through golf now. When we arrived it wasn’t busy and we were greeted by the friendly guy in the pro shop. He gave us some tips about the course and we paid the modest greens fee. The course was in good shape and was a nice layout. Not super hard but some challenges, dog legs, water, etc. The only issue I had was they were spraying the greens all morning which slowed the greens on this already humid day and left green dye everywhere. Outside of that, great course for $37 on a weekday. I would definitely play there again!
Great as expected
This course is consistently in great shape. The greens were rolling true. One bunker on number 11 could use more sand. Very friendly staff, nice selection of shirts in the pro shop, and the food is always good. Highly recommended.
Disappointed when I found out I could have gotten a lower rate then the Hot Deal by asking for the senior rate
