First Time Playing

Flat and slow, but fun

First time playing this course. Front nine has lots of long wide fairways while back nine has several narrow ones., both scattered with some interesting par 3s. The course is pretty flat but has water, fescue, and interestingly placed sand traps, Surprisingly well maintained course with nice amenities. However, the pace of play is pretty slow- at almost 5 1/2 hours for 18 holes. I was disappointed that there were no ball cleaners out however. Many players are local and I saw a lively bunch of people in the pro shop.

Overall a nice course, with players of all skill levels.

Good course

First tee time off around 630, so pace of play not an issue. Lots of rain last month, course was lush but obviously some bunkers were washed out and cart path only. I played from back tees, and other guys played white. Love what they did, so many of the white tees were 25-75 yards closer than they used to be which made it much more fun and quick for them. Great idea.

A local gem

We’ve been so glad to have found Grantwood. The staff is welcoming and friendly. The course is challenging enough to make it fun. The course has been as well maintained as possible, given our non stop rain and cold weather. We love and recommend it!!

Hello, thank you for reviewing Grantwood Golf Course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. With the recent rain we are working to get everything up to par. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve. We will continue to work towards an excellent experience by using your comment for guidance. Thank you for playing and we hope to see you again soon.

Well worth trying

Grantwood looks like a flat course wehn you drive up. It isn't. Not hilly, but there is some terrain that comes into play. It has some nice long holes. Good hazards (#3 water makes it very interesting - approach HAS to carry the pond). This is a great course for the average or intermediate golfer. The greens are well maintained and very puttable. There are some marvelous holes for senior golfers that are challenging but do not require monster shots.
Well done to the grounds crew for the condition of the course. I have played it often in all seasons and it has always been well maintained. I strongly recommend that you try it. If you do, you will be back.

Brought a friend to play

Have played this course in an outing before. Decided to invite a friend who had never played it before who plays another course quite often. Was totally impressed and we will be back if the weather permits this year.

Pric

We got a deal through Golf Now, but it still cost above what we like to pay for a round of golf. The greens were slow and bumpy. The course layout was a little confusing, with tee boxes too near some greens, allowing some interruption in play. Of the two carts in our foursome, one needed several punches on the accelerator to get going each time, and the other one continued to chug, even after taking the key out!

Excellent Golf

Played Grantwood about four times this summer. Course was in excellent condition and pace of play was steady. Always found challenging holes on both sides. Definitely difficult holes. Cart paths the whole course, very nice. Also used the range, a big asset for the course. Highly recommend playing there.
