Shorter holes require some precision liked

Course in great shape Staff helpful rough is high and although most holes aren’t long you better be straight as fairways are narrow. That makes you wait for player to get on green. Pace of play is slow because of that but still not too bad. Liked playing there.

Terrible pace of play.

4 1/2 hours played 16 holes. Worst pace of play I have ever seen. Course ranger nowhere to be found but had no problem coming out at end of day to scream about brining carts back. Do your job and control pace of play before you come screaming at people.

Greens are terrible

The greens and tee boxes are terrible. There has not been any maintenance done to either the greens or boxes. The course is two minutes from my house so it is very convenient, but I’d rather drive a half hour and play a course for the same price. I’ve played numerous courses around the area since the courses reopened since covid and this is by far the worst shape out of all.

Bad conditions, rude staff

First off, I booked a 7am tee time. I was there at 630, and the lady in the shop did not unlock pro shop till 7. Then she tells me I am going to have to play in a threesome, because she has a full booked tee sheet starting at 8am. After making my case, and pretty much pleading with her, she finally let me go off by myself. Was very irritated with this lady to say the least. As for the golf course. The greens are in desperate need of being rolled. They were very slow and very bumpy. Tons of unfixed marks on the greens. The tee boxes were fine, and the fairways were ok. The rough had been left unattended for quite sometime, and since they cut them finally today, there was a ton of loose grass clipping everywhere. Very difficult to find your ball. Plus since it was so long, many spots were missed or matted down by the mowers. I used to live 5 minutes from the course, and it saddens me to see it being run like this. Looks to me like a change in management is needed!!

Winter wonderland

Course was in great shape for February ! Wish golfers would have taken more care to replace divots. Cart path only but there were a few idiots driving on the fairways

Armitage

This course challenges your accuracy. Tree lined fairways reward U4 balls in the fairway and challenge you when you're in the tree lines. The greens were in great condition and roll quick and true. Highly recommend this course.

Course is in good shape

For the amount of recent rain, the greens were surprisingly fast and harder than expected. This is a course to hit shots to specific spots because it is not long. Trees are penal so plan on clubbing down off the tee on 3-4 holes in your round for a better score. Of course I always tell myself to do that and never do it so next time I go there, I will have to try it even if I did stripe my driver basically the whole round.
The course should be in excellent shape as far as greens and fairways go in spring.

A Muni with Attitude

We play Armitage 5, 6 times a year and it never gives an inch. Yes, mid-December isn't ideal for PA golf but no one minded the sparce tree cover, slightly choppy fairways or spotty greens. You still had to keep it in play and in position to be able to score. They are doing upgrades (trees, cart paths, tee locations) so it will only get better. Don't need your driver but you need a good short iron game and a hot flat stick. Plus, with GolfNow, we got all this for less than two beers and a dog! What more do you want for your round?
