About

Holes 9
Par 35
Length 2559
Slope 120
Rating 33.5
Type Semi-Private
Franklin Golf Course is a player-friendly, nine-hole course that is perfect for beginners. At 2,559 yards from the tips, the course plays to a par of 35. While the layout is not exactly a challenge, it does provide a quick round that is good for some practice. The bentgrass greens are well-maintained and putt true. There is no water on the course but there are a few strategically placed bunkers throughout. The hazards are nothing too serious though. The traditional layout has remained largely unchanged since opening in 1941. The golf course easily accommodates those who are new to the game but seasoned players looking for a challenging round will have to go elsewhere though the affordable rates are enough to appeal to any skill level.

Need's a little help

A hilly, cavernous terrain. Would be near impossible to walk. Easy to get lost. Tee boxes and greens hard to find. It appears a bit run down..but the keep it mowed and there is very little out-of-bounds.

Wouldn't consider it a course

There was no fairways, no tee boxes. There was only eleven holes! To play eighteen you play holes 2-9 twice. The carts were tore up. Who ever made this golf course had one giant flaw in the design. Making you play holes over again just gives you more opportunity to slow the pace of by running into people. Don't waste your money!! I would rather play putt putt.

Fun 9 hole course

This course was fun. The greens were slow but very well kept. The fairways are hilly and needing some good mowing but lately we've had a lot of rain. Staff was friendly and accommodating. This course was great for an outing with the kids. We had a lot of fun. Great value.

Not bad for the money

The course overall is average it does have a few challenges and we have fun when we play here. The biggest complaint are the members cutting in where ever they want and have no consideration for the people that have played the holes in order. These peop[le have no consideration for their fellow golfers.

decient for the cheap price

if you want cheap practice coming our of the rough this is the course to play fairways still look like everyones back yard cant tell if your on them or in the rough greens were little better this year but still play very slow due to grass being cut so high. course still gets backed up very quickly but im sure that's due to the 4.50 per round deal I got on golf now. so for the price and 18 w a cart yes ill go back I cant seem to hit fairways anyway so its great practice for me to get out of trouble.

Good 9 turn 9

This course is great for a beginning golfer like me who doesn't want to pay the big country club price. I'd rather go play 9 or 18 than going to the range. Mostly straight, although a couple of holes are difficult to figure out where you are hitting to. (There's one that has a fork in it and the front 9 you go one way and the back you go the other. It was confusing teeing off for the first time) overall: you get what you pay for on this course.

decient course fo the money

Good course for the money booked a tee time was raining hard when we got there they offered a discounted price due to the fact we couldn't take a cart after making it to the second hole they came out w a cart for us to use. There are lots of hills but over all this course is a great little gem. Fairways and tee boxes are not the greatest but for the price u can't expect too much. We stopped to grab lunch at the turn was very nice price and tasted great. Staff was very friendly and informative. Course layout takes a little to GE used to but once again well played course.

Price Makes it Right!

The Course is a nice course if your looking for an elevation challenging course. Its a well kept course and the staff was friendly. We golfed here because it was $10 9 holes with cart so you can't beat that. I and my wife are not great golfers and this course was a challenge for us but overall this course is worth checking out.

This course is discounted for a reason

Nothing you wouldn't expect for cheap golf I guess. Club house is a shack, and the fairways/tee-box are all the same rarely maintained grass.

This is a short course but fun to play.

It is a short course and is fairly easy. It can be walked very easy. It is only a 9 hole course which you play twice to get in your 18 holes. It was not too crowded, but did get backed up on a few holes, but the wait was short. It is a good course for an average player and has a good price.

Disappointed

Showed up, the parking lot wasn't even full for a 10 am tee time and they were out of carts. So we had to take a rain check, this being on the Fourth of July so a wasted day off of work, they could have called and told us before we made the drive.

Setup is Great - conditions weak

The course is a little dated, and it's evident that they keep overhead to the minimum to maintain the local clientele and very low price point for a 9 hole round. Good quick play even though there was a moderate golfer load. Course conditions were rough (tee to green), but the grass was green - though the greens were long and the transition from fairway to rough was non-existent. I'd play it again - it has interesting terrain and a lot of potential......
