Snails Pace

The front nine is more open with tighter fairways and water on the back nine. The pace was very slow on a Friday morning. I was behind a twosome, in front of them way a 6 group of hackers that spent more time looking than hitting. At 7 we finally played through. The tee boxes are rough and two greens (7 and 16) are in rough shape. If you want to spend the day golfing 18. This is your course. If you want a traditional round pace avoid this course.

The course play is great as long as you go early . After 10:00 play is slower. We teed off at 9:00 and finished at 11:45. The tee boxes can use a little improvement. Overall it was a good experience

Great Everyday Course!

Awesome course that won't break the bank. Fun to play not over challenging, but very fairly priced. The staff were nice and followed the appropriate covid-19 precautions, and the pace of play was appropriate as well for that day. I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a quick fun round.

It is what it is

Not a great course. Greens are decent. Rest of the course looks like it could use some TLC. If you’re not very good or want to get drunk with your buddies, it’s the course for you.

No Bang for the buck

2 people for $60+ for 18 holes was just not worth it here. Course conditions were very poor. Will be spending my money on the courses in area that are much more well kept for much cheaper.

Racoon Hills was a pleasant surprise

This was my first time playing at Racoon Hills. However, I was pleasantly surprised. First, I will say that I had a bad day of golf, probably one of my worse in quite some time. And while the weather was perfect, the ground was still wet from rain a few days before and there were spots that left me with muddy, albeit waterproof shoes.

Nonetheless, i still enjoyed the course. It surprised me with the variety of blind shots, especially since I was new to the course and did not review the sheet before playing it. My favorite hole was hole number 7, a par 4 with a lake between the tees (I played blue) and 240 years to clear the water or two shots to the green via a dog-legged left. I landed on the green in shot 1 and barely birdied the hole-my only one for the day. In general I'm an average player, with a few lucky shots.

The staff were nice even as they wore their masks. A young lady cooked me and a buddy a hot dogs each and 6 beers. The hot-dogs were so good we went back for another round.

I would like to go back to try Raccoon Hill on a drier day and in the absence of Covid-19. I noticed a variety of players towards mid-day and early afternoon arriving, both old (clearly in their late 60s to mid-70s and young (college age and just out of college).. It was pleasure to see.

Covid-19

It didn’t look to me that the carts were cleaned and sanitized before use. I would recommend bringing Clorox wipes if you play here. If it wasn’t for these times I wouldn’t have a complaint.

Always a great time at Raccoon!

Received significant rain so had to walk but course was still playable although some of the sand traps were water hazards. I'm glad golf carts were not available as they most definitely would have damaged the course. Staff is always friendly and helpful, even in these unusual times.
