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.

Played as a single, encountered several four and fivesome,all let me play right through with hardly any waiting.Pro shop guy was really nice,and as I was a single and several groups were teeing off on the front he had me go off the back,this was probably why I played a less than four hour round on a Friday on a fairly crowded course.i only wish it was closer so I could play it more often,but I will definitely be back as I had good experience.

This is a great course for the cost. The course was in good shape. Only complaint is that the cart paths are terrible. Don’t go if it’s cart path only, LOL.

I play here frequently, Course could use some restoration, cart paths are rough and hurt my back. Overall this is a nice layout with mostly open fairways some challenging holes. Most greens are fair. Course is fun to play but could use some attention almost everywhere. Staff is alway very friendly.

The course was in very good shape. My one complaint is that the cart paths are in dire need of work. They are so bumpy you have to stay on the course or it will kill your back.

As long as you don't have high expectations of a fancy course, you will get a decent round for your money. People are very nice. The carts were all dirty on the exterior and the fairways were average (thin spots and weeds not uncommon). Agree with some other reviewers that the greens and pin placements were surprisingly challenging for this level of a course. I'm sure they are not as much a problem for the regulars!

I play this course frequently and always enjoy myself. The layout is somewhat challenging but not overwhelming. Relatively flat with some nice slopes, greens are somewhat challenging and require thought. Staff is always friendly!

Suggest that any groups over 4, have their own tee slots. Pace is too slow when fivesomes are mixed in with regular golfer groups. Very pleased with condition of course and the staff.

The course is a bit scruffy although the greens are fine. The rough needs cutting down as balls missing the fairway were often difficult to find. On the whole it was worth the price we paid but there are better courses in the area so, as vacation players, we won't return this year. As a two ball we did catch up a a very slow four ball who had no intention of letting us through which we found discourteous.
