Rating 73.3

The Golf Club at Star Fort sits near the site of a Revolutionary battle known as the Assault at Star Fort. The golf course offers a family-friendly layout surrounded by the region's rich history. The player-friendly design is gentle enough for junior players and beginners, but it's also great for more advanced players who are looking for a quick round. It will surprise you with a few challenges too. At 6,952 yards, the golf course isn't terribly long but there are still some good driving holes. There are some interesting risk-reward par 5s and some fun par 3s that will make you think. Star Fort's final hole is a par 4 that requires accuracy over distance since you'll have to weave through two ponds before facing an uphill shot to a well bunkered green.

Great out of the way course

We decided to try this course out and really enjoyed the layout. We were a foursome and a threesome slowed us down all day but besides that it was an enjoyable round of golf. Greens were in good shape and the course was challenging but not unfair.

fairways grass is still dormant and quite bare making most shots difficult. Traps are in good shape, raked and good sand. Greens are extremely fast. Worth the money but expect minimal grass on the fairways.

Great value

I was pleasantly surprised by several things. Course was in great shape since we have had an abundance of rain here lately. They have added GPS to some of the carts which is awesome.
Greens were rolling very consistent.

Even for the price...not very good

Traveled an hour to play the course and it wasn't even close to what I had expected with previous reviews. Fairway grass was very very short...fridge of greens were very tight also...greens were slow...bunkers had grass growing in them on a few holes....very dissapointed....won't be playing there again.

Well, the greens were nice

I was disappointed with this course. I drove an hour to play it due to its 4-star review. The course was dry and dusty throughout. The grass was nearly dead. Also, the cart paths are the worst I have ever seen at any course. The only thing I can praise it for is the greens. They were smooth and fast throughout.

Another nice George Cobb design

Friendly staff and nice layout. Good fairways and greens better than most we've played this year. I found it to be a good value and worth the drive. Only negatives are the aforementioned cart paths and often deep rough that makes it impossible to find your ball unless you are directly over it. Being a big fan of George Cobb designs I see ourselves going back (a lot if conditions improve).
