Our foursome played in less then 4 hours. The course was in good shape, especially when we factor in it is the 1st week of May.I will be back soon.

Relatively short and flat course yet somewhat challenging with tree-lined fairways and water hazards in many holes. Fairways and greens could be much better. They don't drain well after the rain and dries out quickly. Bunkers have be newly worked on last year.

Just played this course yesterday (08/15/13) and I have to say the course was mostly in terrible shape! At this time it is not worth the 50$ non-resident fee. Tee boxes in terrible shape with some being overrun by some type of crabgrass. Many greens pock-marked like it had been hailing golf balls (don't people fix their ball-marks anymore?) and many also having "burn-out" or "rot-out" areas. Poor drainage in lower-lying areas. Divots in fairways not repaired at all. A real shame as this IS a well designed and challenging shot course.

The course is easy to walk,has a nice layout and has potential to be a very good play. However, tee boxes were subpar,traps were almost sandless and fairways were spotty at best. The greens for most part played well.

Hadn't played this course in a few years. Couldn't believe how far it had done downhill. Greens were in very poor condition with a lot of fungus and bare spots. Tee boxes were not cut well and with many bare spots. Divits in fairways look like they hadn't been fixed in weeks. Most of the sand traps filled with water. Those that weren't had dirt, not sand. Very disappointing.

Valley Brook used to be fun to play. We hadn't played it in a couple of years and were shocked at how bad it's been maintained. The greens are awful with fungus and bare places. The tee boxes are dirt and scraggly grass. Sandtraps were mostly filled with water--and the ones that weren't had dirt, not sand. Fairways were okay, but with a lot of divits. Keep in mind, too, that the Golfnow fee does not include cart.

Im not sure what kind of grass the greens have, but they are nice. They are fast and true, but also hold for good wedge shots. The sand around the greens is well maintained so it is easy to get the ball to stop. It is definitely difficult to two put if one doesn't have a good putting game because the greens are so quick. Overall the greens are almost the courses defense, but I would definitely recommend this course for someone who isn't a beginner.
