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.
