Famed Seth Raynor golf architect doesn’t disappoint, great value, and great opportunity
The Seth Raynor design did not disappoint. The course layout was phenomenal, aside from the 1st hole which was a bit corky. Certainly a course worth playing if in the area especially given its history.
Course Layout: excellent
Fairways: Fine, but hard to differentiate the fairway from the rough. (Length of grass was different, but coloring super similar)
Greens: roll true, but utterly slow (slowest I have played in the last 5 years)
Bunkers/Sand Traps: very well positioned, could be larger and deeper (they we pretty easy to get out of)
Water: The are ponds and creeks throughout the course, be mindful when teeing off and hitting approach shots
This course has the opportunity to be one of the best in upstate NY / lower Ontario. I think the best thing mgt. could do is focus on the greens and fairways and perhaps take out trees to have a more links like feel. Could see 6 greens from the clubhouse if they do so.
OK if You Are In The Area
an average course; nothing sticks out as memorable; ok if you are in the area; a group of 12 of us drove 1.5 hrs to play this course for the first time and the consensus was that it was ok but similar or better courses are available to us closer to home.
