Silver Lake was otherwise a really nice, quick morning outing but very, very wet after almost a day and night of rain the day before. I teed off at 7:15 a couple of minutes after sunrise and played through (as a single player, riding) in 2,5 hours, which was nice but ended up missing putts by ridiculous distances due to watery greens. It wasn’t just roughs and fairways that were sogged - most of the cups were full of water as well and many greens had outright puddles. I was just happy to get out there and aside from its ability to drain water the course is simple, straightforward and spacious - perfect for my long and wide drives...

The course was muddy, sloppy ,wet and covered in spots with ice.....What do you expect it's January anyone who bad reviews because of course conditions is ridiculous. The staff is always friendly and my only complaint is the pace of play was slowed up by one really rude group who just wanted to chat and complain about the frozen tee boxes, get over it were not in florida. So to end this rant this is a decent track for a reasonable price worth stopping by. :)

staff is very friendly. The fairway are wide and well maintained. Not a hard course to play.

Only complains: a couple of the holes are very wet, kind of muddy. A few holes have incline slopes, so hard to find the balls after you hit them.

Nice course and in pretty good shape for a public course. Tee boxes and fairways are a bit chopped up in certain areas but doesn't really affect play. Greens are in good shape. Excellent course for the money especially a hot deal.

I've been playing this course for many years, I was not too happy playing 6 years ago, but since they invested a ton of money to restructure the fairways and the greens, I was impressed. the course is challenging but doable to experience and beginners. Now, I played this past Saturday and as for some players in front of me were complaining about slow play as you can imagine I was frustrated as well. I guess someone allowed a 6 person inexperience group play together. by the time we reached the 10th hole some decided to go home and some started the front 9 again, I decided to jump ahead to the 12th hole. I was not a happy camper, though I had fun the last seven holes,,
