Course was in excellent shape. Cart provided operated well. Pace of play was slow but most golfers playing ahead allowed me to play through as a single. Greens in good shape - not lightning fast but a good speed. Fairways were lush and green and well maintained.

This is a great course for newbies because it has wide open fareways yet challenging for veteran golfers because of the fast greens. We enjoyed playing here and will be back. There was a tournament going on which had a shotgun start, the staff went out of there way to come out and let us know that play would pick up as soon as they finished as they only had 3 holes to go.

The following statement is related to mowing practices, not the staff. The grounds crew were friendly, hard working people.

So, went out to a country course for the combination of piece, quiet & fresh air. Left the course with lungs full of gas & diesel fumes & ears wringing from a few hours of being blasted by the sound of LOUD mowers. May well have played a round in downtown Pittsburgh.

Overall condition of course is very good. Although, greens are slow & a bit wavy. If not for mowers smothering the customers, play would have been quite enjoyable.

Went out of my way to give this course a shot. I have been to about four courses in the area and this one is arguably my favorite so far. Fairly open course with some big drives possible on the downhill. Some very unique holes: An awesome up hill par 3, a short driveable par 4, and some wide open par 5s. I am not a good golfer by any means but this was a lot of fun. The greens are very fast and unforgiving but that added to the challenge. I will certainly back out. It is by no means a 5 star golf course just because those don't exist around here but it is very high quality for the area.

Good fairways. Slow, but well grassed and consistent greens. The layout is wide open and easy. Hardly and bunkers or dangers. The course is short and the rough is short. They keep it in good shape and the people are friendly. I was expecting more character and water features due to the name and having crossed Pymatuning to get there, but there are none. There are very few trees or anything to frame the holes. The fairways are narrow, but the rough is so short that it does not matter. I will say, the back nine is a little harder and has more elevation changes and doglegs. If the front was more similar to the back, this review would be much different. Great course for beginners and higher handicappers.

Not a terribly challenging layout. However, the greens We're receptive, rolled true and were decently quick. Pace of play was pretty slow around the par 3s and driveable 4s, but that's everywhere isn't it? They mark yardages oddly, but distances seemed accurate. Overall, it was an enjoyable course with plenty of opportunities to score.

Friday, June 10, 2016. Course was in excellent shape and the staff was exceptional. Very friendly, accommodating, and even fixed one club my son had a problem with at NO CHARGE. Hot dogs at the turn were good and reasonable and the beer was cold. The three Par 3's are some of the hardest in the tri-county area. Beautiful views and well placed shots make this course fun and deserving of a slope ratting of 121 from the whites. My son and I along with others will be back a few more times before the snow flies this winter. Paul M. Belosh

This course is quite a challenge from the back tees. The fairways and greens were very playable just a little rough around the edges. The staff was friendly and our pace of play was great. I would go back.

We've played here before, but rain the day before left the course pretty wet with standing water in some areas. The greens putted true and were fairly quick but the pace of play was awful - it took 4 hours and 50 minutes to complete 18 holes, there was no ranger and the slower groupsst wouldn't let faster players through.... Usually 3 hours & 30 minutes is all it takes to get 18 in here. Walkers are allowed out later in the afternoon.

This is a course made difficult because of the slope and pin placement of the greens. The pin placement on #17 was ridiculous, on a steep hill about 5 feet from the edge. Personnel were very welcoming. The fairways were open, but lack the quality of bent grass found on better tracks. Tee boxes were scuffed with numerous divots. The greens had many bare spots covered with sand, were hard and would not hold a high pitch shot. The fairways at first cut needed serious weed control, particularly for clover. Overall not a bad course, just not worth more than a 30 minute drive.

For the poor weather conditions this year, the course was in good shape. The uphill holes play long but are fair. The green on 17 is very challenging.

Its a very nice course. We were most impressed with the greens because they are challenging. The only complaint would be they need to have better markings giving direction to the next hole, for first time players we had to guess.
