The course has made big improvements in the last couple years. I usually play the course a few times each year and played more this year than in previous years because of the course condition. Greens are soft and faster than most course I've played around here. Bunkers have been improved and are beautiful though I'd rather not be in them.

The GOTL golf course is an all around great course. The layout of the corse is great, they keep up on the greens,fairways, and more. The owner is awesome and if you don't have a tee time he will help you get in to play even though they are busy. (Although I recommend booking a tee time.) I would recommend this course to anyone from beginner to advanced.

I reallly liked the layout of this. The course conditions weren't the greatest with the lack of rain we've had the last couple months. The greens were in pretty good shape tho. But all in all for the cost and spending the day on the course with my 6yr old daughter, we had a great time.

I played here because I got a hot deal on GolfNow. I was paired up with another person who had picked the same deal whom I had never met before. The people working the course were very nice and accommodating. We are is a slight drought right now, but the fairways were very burnt out and the greens were average at best. On one green i had to putt through an area that still had aeration marks from the spring. Wednesdays they have a deal of $15 for 118 with a cart and I would say that it would be worth the money to play on those days. I would hesitate to tell anyone to play on a day where it is full price when there are other courses in much better shape with a 15 minute drive.

I played on a beautiful day with my 11 year old grandson. The course is shaping up nicely from the last couple of years. We had a great time and everyone there treated us great. Will surely

Fairways and greens were in good shape. The greens were very slow and needs rolling and cut but I understand trying not let them burn! Was not happy with course conditions last year but they have vastly improved. Will definitely play course again soon!

The greens are is really bad shape. Understandably the fairways are not in good shape because of the frequent rain we have been getting. On the positive side the course has some challenging holes.

The pace of play was excellent because there were only half a dozen other golfers on the course, and the only foursome let me play through as a single.

When I arrived I was told that the Back 9 was closed because it was "flooded." It was cart path only on the front 9 because of all of the ponded water. The fairways were in poor condition, especially #7, which was a field of clover. The cart paths were also in poor condition, with broken asphalt and large pools of water.

I did not see ball washers on any holes, nor any coolers with drinking water. I did find quite a few empty beer cans and bottles strewn around the course, though. This is without question the worst maintained golf course that I've played in years.

My only knock on the course is that I wish the greens were quicker. They were painfully slow, although rolled really nice. BUT......the rest of the course was in great shape. I really do enjoy playing there. A lot of tricky holes to keep you on your toes and a great layout. Pace of play was phenomenal. The course was packed and we were able to play 18 in just under 3:45. The staff is as nice as can be. Make sure to hit that 6 foot putt like a 12 footer and you can have a very nice day out in Geneva on the Lake.

Very poor maintained course. Fairways uncut, high rough and the areas outside the rough even higher. Spent lots of time hunting for our balls. Several tee boxes had high grass as well. Contacted the course and they said earlier in the week they had lots of rain in area and could not mow. Well it looked like they had not mowed in weeks. Would not recommend you spend you money to play this course at all.

This course is flat plane, which makes for easier play for me. Wide open fairways so not too tough to stay in fairways. Pace goes smoothly for a 3 1/2 hr game. Some lay up holes adds interest to the round. Staff friendly. Price great through Golf Now.

You might want to look else where if it rains the night before as this course can not hold any water. Fairways and greens on every hole had standing water. Good course for the money if it stays dry.
