Nice little course

Nice little course. Don’t let the fact it’s only a 9 hole course fool you. A few holes offer all the challenge you may want. A very wet spring and early summer have caused a few challenges but all in all, a very relaxing round.

Great Location

Golf Peo / Manager rude, not friendly. Felt like he was under stress
Bartender (previous manager) very friendly
We would have stayed and spent another $30-50 for lunch & beverages had the Manager not been unfriendly.

Beautiful, challenging forest course

This course is a fun challenge. You don't have to hit a long ball as much as you need to hit a straight ball. I golfed a few days after a hail storm damaged the greens and the crew did a great job getting the greens repaired.

Great Course

This was the first time we have played Tomahawk. The fairways are fairly wide and quite "rolly". Fairways did not provide much roll due to the rainstorm that came through the day before. Some standing water also. The roughs are natural terrain. Greens were challenging with few being totally level. Some very small streams cut through the fairways. Beautiful scenery in the Black Hills. We will definitely play this course again.

Wet, but fun!

We played this course following torrential rains the day before. Course was sopping wet, but still fun. Staff could not have been nice and they have a bar/snack bar with friendly service ers.

Love this course!!

Purchased a "Hot Deal" on Golf Now app ($15 + fees).
I had an absolute blast. Course was challenging, but I enjoyed the difficulty level.
Playing in a mountain setting was new for me. The course is very narrow in spots. Accuracy is an absolute must here (7th fairway.....nasty!)
Course was in great shape. Greens a little slow and bumpy, but mountain climate makes it impossible to have perfect greens. Rest of course more than made up for greens.
Hoping to make it back to Deadwood sometime soon to play it again. I highly recommend it.

Scenic challenge

The course is very challenging with every fairway bordered by Ponderosa pine, birch and spruce. Elk and deer are prevalent. Water on three different holes adds to the challenge particularly where the stream winds back and forth down three fourths of fairway seven. Beautiful challenging course with great staff.

Beautiful mountain course

The course is in excellent condition this year and the scenery and views of this Black Hills gem are soul lightening. Breathe in the fresh scent of the surrounding pines and enjoy a round of golf. Greens are challenging to say the least but this is one of those must golf golf courses if your ever in this area. Excellent staff and the food was good to. No pressure golfing.

A Must Play!

I've been wanting to play this course for some time now. Thru a "Hot Deal", my GF and I got on for a great price! Scenery was outstanding and the club house crew was very friendly. Just was it was 18 holes, but a MUST PLAY for any golf lover.
