This course has nice greens

Too much rain recently for the course to be playable. Most Fairways were extremely soggy, and getting to the fairways from the cart path (through the extremely soggy rough) was a challenge. Once you got on the greens it was normal and the greens were in very good shape. A lot of leaves still on the fairways.

Nice clubhouse with food served in a casual and friendly atmosphere. Appreciated restrooms being open on the course during winter play!

Lake of the Woods is a must play

This course has a great layout, good greens and plenty of slope to make it challenging. Booking thru GolfNow with a hot deal is an awesome deal. I really like the course and will continue to visit this facility.

Better hit it straight

This was the first time playing the course. The layout is challenging with tree lined fairways and a few blind tee shots. It has rained the past few days so it was cart path only. Overall the course was is pretty good shape. The greens were in ok shape, very playable but not perfect. I found the greens to be fast and the was plenty of break. There was not a flat green on the course. For the money, hot deal $17 plus fee, it was well worth it. I look forward to going back and playing it again with a little course knowledge.

Overall a good course

Course was wet from the recent rains and therefore played long, but overall in good shape. Some of the tees needed work, but the greens were good. Since it is cut out of a home development, there is a lot of out of bounds though out the course.

I would play again.

Nice course

Had a really enjoyable time On this course. Pace was a little slow due to individuals not allowing folks to play through but I wasn’t in a hurry. I will be back. The staff are working extremely hard to get the course in shape. There were some rough patches but overall I would give the conditions of th course a B+.

Issues

Everytime I have played here this year, there has been issues, you either have to play same nine twice, you play certain holes only, there is ground under repair, they were spraying greens today while I was trying to approach. I have been behind a five some on multiple times just like today and I have been involved in extremely slow play overall everytime I play here

Great Course. Great Layout. Many fairways have OB on left and right, stay in the middle. Nice Greens. No driving range is my only downside.

One of the worst ever

For the price I felt I was getting a good deal. What the lady at the pro shop failed to tell me was that there was a seniors tournament going on that day. I get to hole 6 and ask the group of 4 if I could go ahead, I was the only person in my group so I move fast. They get mad and say no we are in a tournament. So I decide to skip the hole all together and go to the next where it was clear. I play the hole and as I am leaving the green, someone from that same group hits there ball as I’m coming off and nearly hit me. I let it go and move on. I realize that every hole is swamped with people and I didn’t have 8 hours to sit there and wait so I went to leave where the lady from the pro shop met me and said that a group complained that I skipped a hole and she was quite nasty to me about that, so I said forget it, you have lost a customer for good. Do not go play here. It is a terrible course, it’s not taken care of, and worst of all, the players on this course are snobby and extremely rude. Never waste your time here.

Probably my last time

As I said in my first review, the pace of play is problematic. Well, today it was horrific. I get the feeling the "old guard" club members are not enamored with opening the course to the public. The members start at any hole they choose on the course, play glacially, and are crotchety. Add to the fact that it seems the course either isn't irrigated or they are choosing not to irrigate the fairways, the quality of play was not enjoyable. I don't think I'll be going back

Fun course

I enjoyed playing my second round here. The clubhouse staff was very friendly and accommodating. The course is in good shape for early season with the exception of some of the areas right off the greens that need to be seeded. My only critique is the pace of play as it is a gated community with membership. So, on both occasions I ran into very slow playing groups as well as singles who wanted to push the pace.

Fun and challenging course

I enjoy playing this course. It requires accuracy to score low, but is not unfair. The woods, hills, rolling terrain, and varying lengths of the holes keep things interesting. You can lose some golf balls here. Some of the Par 4’s are a bit long for an older player like me. The greens were in excellent shape, especially for this time of year, but the fairways were dormant and a recent windstorm had strewn small branches in many places. So, some of the fairway lies were a bit rough. A cafe style restaurant is located at the course. Overall, great staff and great course for the money. Try it,
