Hidden Gem in Central Pa
My favorite Central Pa Public golf course. Very open and forgiving.
I've played many Links courses in Ireland and Scotland and this course would be called a Hidden Gem if it were located along the coast..
Very 'links" feel to it.
Staff has always been great and easy to work with.
Fairways are smooth, rough is not penal, and greens are top notch even in this summer heat.
Four Teeing grounds make it a challenge for any level player.
I have played this course several times over the last few years. If you haven't played it recently, you haven't played it. Management has made an effort to improve conditions in the last two years and they have done a great job. The fairways are good, the greens are excellent and the bunkers have greatly improved and are very good. The tees are average but are being improved. Although 15 out of the 18 holes appear to be wide open, the links style makes it play more difficult than it looks. Holes 7, 8 and 9 are challenging and and worth the trip.
Highlands of Donegal
Course name changed to above - prior review was 2 years ago - course is now in excellent condition and is fun to play - rates are moderate
Terrible course conditions, poor pace of play
I played this course a couple of times this spring/summer and was disappointed each time. The first time was in April and the course was in rough shape. Almost all of the tee boxes were cut way too high and the grass was absurdly patchy. They really were awful. The fairways and greens seemed to be ok enough but the sand was rock hard. We went back a month later to see if maybe the grass had grown in a bit, but it was still in very poor shape. To make things worse, the pace of play was awful and there was a group of teenagers playing a few groups ahead that were yelling and carrying on the entire 4+ hours. The marshall working there did nothing to move along the pace or stop the yelling. I will not be going to this course in the foreseeable future. Do not be tempted by their low rates. You're much better off going elsewhere.
