Played Turkey Creek on 5-23 at 1:30. Course is in great shape especially considering they just aerated the fairways. Hot Hot that day, 99 degrees. Best part was hardly anyone there that day. I'll be back, as always. One of my favorite courses

Staff complained about wife's shirt not having a collar, saw plenty of jeans and t-shirts on course. Starting on hole 5 and finishing on hole 4 is probably the dumbest thing I encountered this week. Change your numbering when you actually build your "new clubhouse". Watering greens in the middle of the day, greens were extremely slow and hairy, punch marks were prominent. There were dead spots around fringes. No water on course. Had several people drive through the fairways of the hole we were on. Not impressed with this goat track.

I play Turkey Creek maybe once a year. In spite of the unusually heavy rains this season, the course was very playable and even firm in parts. The green aeration healing is excellent. The variety of holes and contours makes Turkey Creek a good test. The natural environment just adds to the mix. For the cost (great on-line specials), this is a must play course for golfers of all levels. Fun, challenging and even relaxing environment.

This is a good course to play but I would wait until things green up again. Most of the greens are very small and had a lot of rough patches on them. There were areas of the fairway that was like being in a bunker. I've played here in the spring and summer and it's not too bad, but I wouldn't play in the winter or fall again.

Turkey Creek is challenging but fair. Great scenery and course layout. Course in great condition.

One of the main pluses is the variety and difference between holes and greens. Another plus is playing golf "tn the wild" unencumbered by homes dotting the fairways as in other courses.

Turkey Creek is one of the better courses in the area.

This is a great course. Even though it doesn't look long on the score card there are some holes long hitters will love. The course was very green this day, due to the record rainfall this year. There are not to many bunkers on this course. Some of the greens are small so precision irons are a bonus. While other holes allow shots to be played on the ground for a links style feel. It is "out in the country" so the atmosphere can't be beat, combine that with a well groomed course and a great price, what do you get? Pure GOLF FUN!

reviews are right... very small greens, but was pleasantly surprised. Evidently in the process of changing the order of the layout, as we actually started on #5 ( i guess used to be #1)... it was quite humorous as the other persons we asked where to start, they said go ahead and start there, its the old setup.<br/> Would go back again.

Greens were great, fairways a bit rough. And speaking of rough, there is a lot of it and so it makes it more challenging to stay on the Fairway and not lose your ball in the prairie grass. But fairways very wide.

Made a 3pm tee time and got done in 3.5 hours. Hit Eichens on the trip back to the City. Perfect afternoon and evening out.
