Golden Hills has always been a well kept course and even with all down pour of rain the past couple days, the course was in excellent condition. The staff is always friendly and approachable. Majority of the Midlands golf courses has lost several of their green, all of the greens here was superb and I couldn’t blame my scores on the greens. Keep up the good work and social distancing was still been practice at the front desk.

Golden Hills

Had a last minute foursome wanting to play. Called and said if we got there soon they would start us on the back 9. Fantastic service! For end of January, the course is in great shape. Greens rolled fast. Beautiful weather and a fun course to play.

Wonderful Experience

Played with Trish a member at the club who guided me around the course which allowed me to enjoy the round. Trish is a great ambassador for the Club. The Course was in very good condition and is challenging for golfers of all skill levels. Highly recommend you play this course.

First time playing in 15 years

This was my my first time playing this course in 15 years. My last time was not inviting from the staff and patrons. The greens are extremely fast and hard to read. I guess you have to play the course to get use to the quickness and and layout. Played for only $20 which is a steal for this course. Will play again
