Nice course, has a challenging layout
Nice course, greens are in good shape with some hard breaks. Front nine is relatively easy with unique hazards on each hole. No sand traps on this course, but many creeks and ponds and mature trees Several fairways suffering from the 2018 summer heat, thin grass. Back nine is built on a hill, with many fairways sloping left to right, or right to left requiring strategic placement of your tee shot. Back nine also has many blind shots to the green. Course knowledge is essential to score well.
When you first pull in everything looks really beautiful. Club house and restaurant is great. The course has a really nice layout but the upkeep is rough around the edges. Tee boxes need cut also. Some dead areas in the fairways need addressed. Back plays a lot tougher. Lots of hills and blind shots. If they figure out a way to upkeep the course the way they upkeep the welcome area and facilitates, it would be a really great place overall.
Excellent day to play goldf
I play the Trout Club quite often. I enjoyed my round with my kids today and I recommend playing the course this year. The management and staff have put a lot into the course to make it challenging and fun.
A beautiful setting
A very challenging course calling for putting one's shot making skills to the test. The tees, fairways, and greens were in great shape. It's so much fun for me to play there. And after the round we enjoyed a wonderful lunch at the Club's restaurant.
Been seeing great Hot Deals on this course and finally took advantage of it. Amenities are very nice. Ate lunch there- very nice (and good food!). Course was in very good shape. Not long at all, but it has its challenges. Will be back!
Very nice course
Scenic course in great condition. Only drawback is back nine is very hilly with lots of blind shots. Other than that, this is a very nice course.
Short yardage wise but tough
Don't be fooled by the yardage on the scorecard, this track is tough no flat spots anywhere. Greens slope allot. No bunkers which was odd but didn't make it any less difficult. Only complaint would be some of the blue tee boxes were uphill.
Quirky but FUN
Interesting course. Rolling hills, lots of trees, trout steams, no sand. Several blinks shots. Tricky greens. A very pleasant round of golf. Not something you would want to walk and longer playing than the yardage would indicate. Great restaurant. Have played it for many years, both when it was "needy" and now that is greatly improved.
great course foe the money
Loved playing here. got rained out after the front nine.
Couldn't see a lot of the trouble. Small little streams not visible from tee. Also took forever to play. Teed off 9:48 a.m. finished at 2:35 p.m. Not enjoyable.
It's not a long course but the Hills and the greens make it very challenging
First time in three years
I had not played this course in over three years because it was in very bad shape the last time I played it. What a difference!
The course is now in excellent condition. The improvements that have been made are remarkable. The greens were in grest condition, as was the rest of the course. You still have to know where to hit the ball off many tees to stay out of trouble but that just makes it an interesting course. Enjoyed the round and will go back soon.
This is a local favorite of mine and you can tell they are putting money into the course to make it better great deal and great condition
enjoy the view!
have played here hundreds of times and always come back for more. my wife is a member here. great golf but very cold hearted greens. the back nine has a tough reputation but actually plays a couple of strokes easier than the front. enjoy the views!
Great place to golf
Cant complain about anything at Trout club. We had a few guys golfing behind us who almost hit us half a dozen times. But minus the brawl that almost ensued, it was a great time.
Getting Better - Off Course Amenities Are Perfect 10!
Many might harp on course conditions here as fairways were hard to distinguish vs. rough and bare spots were plentiful, likely thanks to area getting hit hard with grey leaf spot. 90% of the courses in this area got hit so perfect conditions for it to eat up the grass and make it look like they didn't water. Read up about it here - https://www.extension.purdue.edu/extmedia/bp/bp-107-w.pdf They were installing a fresh blacktop cart path when we played so expect some smooth sailing out there in another week or so. The fresh black against the green grass made for a great visual around tees and greens.
The greens were just punched but looked like they weren't in bad shape. The course layout itself on the front at least is fun, tight at times but a good mix of different types of holes. Some blind but not too many, use the GolfNow app for GPS, it'll help and they have cool flyovers playing in the restaurant as well. I hear the back is very hilly and each hole is carved out of a valley so lots of straight drives could end up in rough or wrong side of fairway which sounds frustrating but if it was easy, it wouldn't be any fun right?
The extra stars earned here are on the place's clubhouse area. The old trout ladders are nostalgic for sure, great looking pool area and overnight cottages right on site if you are looking for place to get away, they got rooms! Restaurant, bar area looks great, I've been here multiple times and only played once but I like to come just for the drive up and the little things they've thought of around the building. Can't wait to see what course looks like with more TLC, keep up the great work.
Liked the course...greens are good but fairways are not so good. Overall a great value.
Paid $13 so I'm not gonna complain to much but if you are expecting anything remotely nice or challenging then play elsewhere. Front 9 is way better to play than back 9.
