Greens on back nine in horrible shape, presumably because of effect of hot summer and heavy rain. Still, fun holes, and sufficient challenges. Not in greatest shape, but, nevertheless, a fun afternoon.
Putting on Sand Dunes
Course conditions were really rough. Need some serious watering and maintenance.
Course was cheap at a hot dea for middle of the day. Course was awful huge patches of dirt fairways were unplayable at certain points. Use to be in great shape a couple of years ago but it’s gone down hill quickly o guess and I won’t be back
Grumpy staff, poor management, bad value for money
Without any warning before booking, we ended up paying $50+ per person for rude employees and starter, sand all over every green (and they kept dumping more sand during play), and had to play front 9 nine twice. And that was the price for walking.
Again, no warnings before booking.
I know it’s a county course and the bar is low, but this was eye opening.
Thank you for your review. We will pass along your positive experience to our team at Valley Brook Golf Course. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Many holes in awful condition
Feel like Valley Brook has been in worse condition each year that the county has had it unfortunately. I don't think they really know what they are doing. Hadn't rained in days and has been very hot, yet 1/2 the holes were soggy and under water? How about you water it less?????
Many fairways and greens just in unacceptable shape even for a muni course. 12 seemed like there is sewage leaking in the "fairway", 13 looks like a parody account green (and was shut down all last year for a temp), and 14 also in awful shape as usual.
The county top to bottom should be ashamed how they handle the courses and management top to bottom, especially for one of the weather counties in the country!!
Crappy Course (Literally)
Course was in horrible condition. Geese were all over the place and the fairways were covered in goose crap. It's a shame how downhill this course has gone since becoming county owned. Seems like not a single dollar is being invested in maintenance.
it had rained the day before. this course does not drain quickly, even some of the tees were soggy.
i would rate the greens slightly below average.
We're glad you enjoyed your 4-star experience with us, please comment or reach out to our team in the golf shop to let us know more about your round!
The course was in very good shape. The pace of play was excellent. A ranger did ask us if the group in front of us was moving quick enough. They were. Always an enjoyable round
Hi, Thank you so much for the great review. We are glad you had an incredible time, and we hope to see you again soon! Thanks for choosing Valley Brook Golf Course.
I don’t know if the excessive amount of rain lately or the hurricane but the course is not up to it’s usual standards. While most of the greens, some pretty challenging, and fairway are in good to excellent a number are in poor to very poor condition. The staff are terrific and very helpful. Due to the virus the of course amenities are not currently available. Rate of ply was very good. A little over 3 and a half hours for 18 holes. Even in it’s less than ideal condition I would still recommend playing this course.
some fairways grey
It has been a hot and wet summer. Some fairways were not in good shape but didnt stop you from playing them and have a good round for 50 dollars. Everyone very friendly and played in 3:30.
Goose poop on the greens, can’t put. Staff sucked besides the ranger. Don’t go. Ever
Played almost all local courses - this place is a disaster. Many greens are fried, goose crap everywhere and 11th fairway has sprinkler leak and smells like sewage. Go to Darlington.
NO RANGERS KEEPING PACE OF PLAY
There were multiple groups holding up everyone. I tried calling the club house to send a ranger out but it had a busy signal. There were some staff members driving around but they did not address the issues. On two holes a complete sprinkler was on so I could not hit off the tee box. I do not recommend amateurs playing here because there were a lot of tight holes and trees. Not worth the money at all.
Burnt out greens, standing water that smells, goose droppings everywhere, flat boring layout.
There is literally no reason to come to this course. Had to use the restroom when I arrived and I was directed to a port-o-potty which they said was because of covid safety. It was 95 degrees out and the potty hadn't been cleaned in several days...you get the picture?
Then we arrive to teebox and are approached by an elderly gentleman with no mask and wants us to sign out the golf cart with his pencil??? You shouldn't have this man unprotected approach your guests and use a community pencil.
If you are into a boring course that has a very distinct odor and constantly battle goose droppings in the fairway and greens, this course is for you.
