A Gem

I have been playing this course for over 50 years, and it is still enjoyable. The course was in good condition, the greens a little slow, but running true. We enjoyed a beer on the patio after the round. The food is very good there, especially the crab cakes.

Loch Narin

Nice course a little wet in some spots but a fun track with some interesting holes. Golf staff super friendly. Nice bar and restaurant. Bar tender a bit slow and she appears somewhat disinterested. But the food is good and overall a great day of golf.

The LOCH NAIRN

Rich, in the pro shop, is as enthusiastic as I've seen . Glad to see someone who likes his job that much.
I would like to play it again. I went there because it had been on my radar for a while AND it was a HOT DEAL.. I'm glad that I went.

A Sweet Little Course

I have been playing this course for over 50 years. It is a nice layout and fun to play. Course conditions vary from time to time. Today it was in pretty good shape, with fast, but bumpy greens. They have some of the best food you ever find at a golf course. Go for the crab cakes.

No reservation

When I got to the course they didn’t have my tee time. It was for someone else! Luckily they didn’t show or I would have been bumped. But GolfNow still charged me 5 bucks!

Expected better

Wasn’t the best of outings. Waited 50min past our tee time for carts because apparently their cart delivery guy failed to drop off their extras. Tee boxes needed work. Grass looks liked it hadn’t been fertilized yet and bunkers were impossible to shoot from (lots had standing water in it still, mind you it hadn’t rained in about 5 days either. The back 9 was in terrible shape. A lot of damp areas in which your ball would sink right into the ground and a par 3 in which the only dry grass around it was the green itself. After seeing all of the good reviews, I’ve been trying to play here, but this wasn’t a good first time. The holes are basically right on top of one another. I might try it another time but if it’s like this again, I don’t think I’ll be coming back.

A real shot makers course

I love this course. It is beautifully planned out. All shots are fair but you do have to keep it fairly straight. Awesome course, and in great condition for March.

Nice Course, Well Maintained

Playing on a Thursday afternoon the course was not too crowded at all (which is how I like it).

The course is challenging with water hazards, sand and smaller than usual greens.

Regardless of your handicap you will enjoy this course because it will test your skills.

The last couple of courses I have played in the fall leaves were all over the course. Very few on this course but that is because they had people on the course clearing the fairways. I was very happy with how the course looked and played.

I will definitely be back.

Great value and awesome experience

The course was in very good condition after the last two heavy rain storms. No signs of storm damage or lack of upkeep by the course staff. Great job on keeping it pristine. Played this course 5 years ago and I wondered why it took me this long to return. Thank you for the awesome experience again.See you next season.

Loch nairn

Got a great golf now hot deal, $12. The course was in good shape. Greens were small bore aerated and really had no effect on putting. Fairways were good, some low spots very wet, 2-3 holes were cart path only. Course was not crowded, played in 3 1/2 hours.

Challenging short course.

The course was in the best condition it’s been in all summer. The greens truly rolled out and we’re in great condition. They have one of the longest par fives in the surrounding area and the layout provides a good challenge.

Fun old course

This is a fun old course with plenty of hole diversity -- very long and very short par 4s, a monster par 5 and a reasonable length one, and some challenging par 3s of varying length. The course features water and traps galore. It plays to only 6,000 yards from the middle tees but seems longer as it has a number of uphill approach shots and is only a par 70. It has perhaps gotten a bit overgrown over the years as some trees that may have once been challenging "trouble" on a few of the shorter holes now require such accurate tee shots that higher handicappers will nearly always hit them -- and play will be slowed down. Luckily today the course was pretty empty and pace of play was good...

Course conditions are pretty much abysmal -- except for the greens which, have some dead spots but rolled true for the most part (and are challenging and difficult to read if you are not familiar with the course) Fairways are pretty much shot and tees were bare and lumpy. This probably is due in large part to the incessant rain this year -- the ground is saturated and there was still standing water in many traps as well some fairway areas even though it had hardly rained the past week!

If you are willing to roll your ball to find a decent patch of grass you can still enjoy this course. And, at $30 with cart (which is absolutely necessary given some lengthy green-to-tee walks) it was a good deal today...

Sal

Tee boxes need work, and the fairways need over seeded. A lot of bare spots. Greens rolled well and they had good speed. Over all the course needs some work ok for the $ 25 range, but not much more.
