Very nice older course.

Tee boxes need attention. fairways and greens in good condition. Teeing off over the driveway was different. I would play again.

Frost delay, lots of leaves and muddy

Clearly nothing that the fine folks at Berkleigh could do about the weather. Staff was very friendly and course is a decent layout. Greens were excellent. Sandtraps and fairways a bit muddy, but we just got a ton of rain, so nothing much can be done about that.

There are tons of leaves around and we lost a couple of balls because of them....Berkleigh could do a better job of clearing leaves from the fairways and the rough near the fairways.

Beautiful Day

The rough is not as "rough" as it was in June but still so long as to slow play due to difficulty in finding any ball that didn't fall in the fairway.

A VERY slow group held up play and without a ranger, there was nothing to do but wait.

Still a great course & a good round with a friend

Excellent Track

Once again pleasantly surprised by Berkleigh. I will say that I played as a twosome at 3PM on the day after Labor Day so crowds were down and pace of play was not an issue. New golf carts are nice which is important since the only less-than-stellar feedback I have is that the cartpaths are fairly broken up and a bit spine-jarring in spots. Other than that, this course is a gem. Conditions are markedly improved and the greens were fantastic. Great, big layout with plenty of room to grip it and rip it - though there is ample trouble to be found as well (esp. those pesky, meandering streams). Green complexes (esp. bunkers) are excellent. Great layout and design. A hidden (or not so hidden) gem. Friendly, accommodating pro shop staff actually got us out 10 minutes before our tee time! Noting but positive things to say. Reasonable value as well. Can't wait to go back!

Berkleigh Golf

Staff/Pro was extremely unprofessional and downright rude. Was run off the practice range for grabbing a ball.
Will not play here again and won't recommend it to anyone.

Why would you grab a bucket to only hit a “few” range balls, minutes after coming into the shop to ask about range tokens?

First time at Berkleigh

Great layouts! Two holes along the highway. The rest are scenic and secluded. Fairways and short tees need a little love but not to much. Several on the course when we were there, but play moved fine.

Love this course

I love playing here. I enjoy it enough that despite what can be a slow round I tolerate it. This day was all the great golf in 3 hours 40 mins. Much more enjoyable. Despite the challenges the weather's created for the staff, they kept the course in excellent condition. I do wish I could catch players who don't fix ball marks or divots though. Honestly, that is about all that was wrong, each of us agreed beforehand to fix 3 per hole, so the group behind us benefitted. Can't wait to get back. I live over an hour away but still make it here 5-6 times a year. The new owners really doing a great job.

Thick Rough

After all the water this year, the rough is super thick. Real tough sometimes even to find the ball let alone advance the ball forward. Greens are running great. Fairways are good.

Falling apart

First time I ever played this course it was beautiful. It has since fallen apart and the grounds are not kept up with repairs. Some manager also tried to rush me off the tee box before my tee time and also paired me up with someone who was late. I will not be back.

Great course but..

I love this course but the lack of attention. To the slow pace of play can be infuriating. I've played here 3 times in the last month as part of a foursome of mid handicap players. I think we've had to wait on literally every shot except putts. This past weekend we had 6 groups on one hole (4 waiting at the tee). I have NEVER seem a Marshall on the course, as much as I love playing here, I'm ready to give up because I see no attempt to change this. I have mentioned it in the shop and they're very nice and apologize for the inconvenience, there is nothing done to change.

Cancelled

you sent me a cancellation of my 3:0pm tee time and by the time I was leaving for Berkeleigh there was no place at all to play.

Unreliable, over-priced puffery, just like any self-congratulatory internet enterprise.

Sorry for any inconvenience but we have a major storm that morning that drop 6 inches of rain with high winds(2 tornado warnings.). The power was knock out for a few hours. We were unable with your information provided to contact you by phone when we had to close the course.

Priced too high

It’s really not a bad course but not worth 70 dollars. If you can’t get a hot deal on Golfnow it’s not worth it. Plenty of courses within 30 minutes that are same quality but 20 dollars cheaper.
