Once again the course was in great shape despite aeration recently. The staff was friendly and the course was not overly busy.<br/> Wanted to get the usual weekend package but couldnt. seems the new owners have no lodging at HV for summer and want you to stay at 7 Springs where there is a 2 nite minimum stay on weekends. Also noticed greens fees went up and the course is no longer on Golf Now. Food and beverage increased as well.

Very nice course in excellent condition. Craig, the course professional, is very friendly. The views are the best of any golf course in Pennsylvania. Perfect fall day and played in just over 3 hours. It doesn't get any better.

I had a 7:15 tee time and the place was practically shut down. Not sure if it was an error on the part of the course or this website but obviously the two weren't communicating. The guy in the pro shop didn't think he had any tee times until 8 am. I purposely got there early and booked an early tee time because I had other plans in the afternoon so that kind of put a damper on things. Luckily I was still able to get out first and finish in time.

The greens were in amazing shape! Very impressed. Unfortunately on the back nine I guess the mower got lazy though and at least 6 holes didn't put the flagstick back in - I should always aim for the middle of the green anyway but its nice to know where the pin is!!

I would have like to have seen some of the leaves in the fairways cleaned up too. I lost probably 3 balls in the fairway!

Granted I was the first one on the course that day, but it all goes back to what I originally said - if someone books a tee time at 7:15, have the course READY for them to play it.

This is such a beautiful golf course in every season...exceptionally maintained, elevation change without side-hill lies, varied and interesting layout...and now add a burst of fall color to the already charming vistas! Maggie in the pro shop is a gem and treats GolfNow folks with a genuine smile. This course is a joy to play in every sense and couldn't be a better value at GN pricing. It's an hour drive for me but very well worth it.

The course is fairly challenging with woods on each side of every fairway. The greens are medium to small in size and are somewhat undulated. Fairways are pretty wide but there's not much forgiveness beyond and there is a good bit of water and sand along the course. The conditions of the course are not "championship" in nature but you'll enjoy a very unique round with beautiful views from nearly every hole.

We were expecting steeper and more angled fairways but were pleasingly surprised to find them spacious and well maintained. The course has many hills but works them into play very well. The bunkers had real sand and not the hard packed play box sand found in many Western Pennsylvania courses.

From tee through the green, this course is in better shape than ever. Great experience except for slower play coming in back 9. Seems like always a problem here. If you never played here, make the trip. Nice experience.

Played the course and we were surprised how many ball marks had not been fixed where you end up with round brown holes on the greens. We saw the damage on the first 7 holes but as the day went on the greens got better.

The layout and vistas on this course are really nice and worth a trip back in the Fall but we hope the greens in the front are nicer in the Fall.

Commented on 08/30/2013

While I highly encourage you to play this beautiful course in the fall after the leaves have changed, I want to caution you to not play the course after the leaves begin to fall. It is virtually impossible to find a golf ball that isn't in the fairway after the leaves are on the ground at this course. Also, remember this happens a few weeks earlier in the mountains than it does in the lower elevations. I just want to make sure your second trip to this great course is as enjoyable as your first!!!

This course has some amazing views from the side of the mountain. It's very scary walking up to the first tee and seeing a down hill shot to water with the green tucked behind and to right. The course is in great shape. It has some difficult up hill shots and a few blind shots but overall not to challenging it was a great round of golf.

The greens are small but the design of the water and bunkers near the greens makes it very interesting. Hit a good shot and you are rewarded. Hit a bad shot and, well just have another ball handy. The views are incredible!!!!

Course had a family event and had 6 groups playing in front of us. Waited on every hole and when asked the Marshall only comment was that there are no open holes. You do not play for 5 hours and then say you enjoyed your experience. So when you book tournaments tell the players what is expected ie., 4 hour round. So then enforce pick up the ball and go to the next hole!! Marshall only came by once as he knew that golfers following the family event would just "blast him"!!

Nice layout. Tight fairways with no overlapping holes. Greens are challenging but not overly difficult. Will hold all shots. Fairways can get swampy after rain. Changes in elevation make club selection critical.

Paid $24 for 18 with a cart. 1:30pm tee time on a Saturday, but was able to tee off at 1pm and finished right around 4:45pm.
