Great course

A good challenge for amateur golfers, ruff is thicker than it looks, very enjoyable course to play. I'll play it again when I visit my daughter. Midwesterners, this ain't the ruff we see each week!! Overall it's a great course to play!

Beautiful Course

This is the 3rd time I have played the Ballantyne Hotel Course. It is quickly becoming one of my favorites!!! It's a little pricey, but well worth it for the experience you get. Everything is extremely well kept. And the course is in top condition!!! I take customers to play golf often, and this is the most requested course!!!

Gonna Miss Jessica's Bush

Attached is a pic of the infamous bush Jessica sank her impossible birdie from back in 2012:
That shot cost me $75 and I still believe she somehow cheated!

Played on August 7th, 2020. Course is in better condition than some reviews indicate. Greens, Tees, and Fairways were great. Bunkers were good. I've played here from time-to-time for 20+ years. It's a great track, despite changes to some holes (2, 3, and 8 in particular) several years back. A bit overpriced in the market, but a great golf day out every now and then. Pace of play was OK, just a tad slow on the last 4 or 5 holes.

I'd play it again before it closes if I get the chance.

Good course, but pace is not managed

Course is in good shape, but expect a 4.5-5 hour round as there is no marshal to keep pace of play. For an $80+ round fee that is unacceptable.

Assume this is due to the course closing in the next year or two, no extra attention.
