First Time Playing

Hard to believe it’s in the middle of the City. Cheap, but better maintained courses in the area.

Plenty of hills make this a great workout. Lot of opportunities to use all clubs in my bag. Saw only 3 other golfers on a Wednesday afternoon.
Fairways very rough. No sand traps and water on only 2 holes (one pond does double duty).
Greens are below average quality.
“Clubhouse” is shabby, mid-course restroom is a porta-potty. No food or beverage service.
If you are looking for a course to learn on, or to introduce your granddaughter to the game, this is it.

Gypsy Hill experience

Totally satisfied! The course was challenging but moderately difficult. The Pro Shop staff was knowledgeable and friendly.

Although inclement weather didn't allow me to finish the last two holes, I'll definitely be going back!

Working hard!

It was a cold windy fall day. Yet the course was a running like a well oiled machine. The staff was friendly and the city maintenance crew was working their hardest to keep the course in playable condition. Gypsy hill park is full of many old thriving trees. This time of year the leaves leave a breath taking view. They also become a nuisance to golfers. Covering fairways and greens, even the purest of shots with the best lies may never be found. The staff at Gypsy Hill worked non stop for the first 18 holes and the following nine with several industrial leaf blowers clearing the way to make an enjoyable cold windy fall day swinging the links. Very accommodating club house, and hard working maintenance made our experience feel as if this was a professional public course! Best of all, no course within 100 miles can beat the rate all year round! I will be back very soon!

Good Condition

The course was in good shape. Being the first time playing the course I was not sure where I was hitting the ball too because of the elevation changes. One of the holes on the back a dog leg to the right I could not tell where the fairway was and the leafs made it hard to find your ball even in the fairways. I would like to go back in the summer and play it again with out so many leafs and knowing the course a little better.

Great time, Good Challenge, ALOT of TREES! But overall grew up playing this course and it is a challenge. If you like a good links course then get ready to be challenged.

Narrow Fairways. Lots of trees. Challenging tee shots.

Challenging tee shots with lots of trees blocking fairway. Greens are undulating but not extremely fast. Very hilly and using a cart is necessary for most senior players. Good rates thru GolfNow.

My home course, so some sentimentality to the play there.

Hilly course, as the name implies. Rather fun layout. Nothing fancy, but ok.

Hope you REALLY like hills!

The "Hills" in Gypsy Hills really lives up to it's name. Stopped by here on the way back to NYC from an Atlanta road trip for a round. On the plus side, it was only $18 - which is a good thing because anything over that really would be tough to swallow. The course is hilly. It's seems like it's built into a recreational park - I say seems because I am not from the area. Lot's of blind shots and no flat lies. It's not marked so well and 17 was really hard to tell which way to approach the hole as it looked like it had two fairways. It's good for a quick cheap round but that's about it. I will say the back 9 was better taken care of than the front. Happy to hit the course on a break from driving but wouldn't seek it out.

Plays Longer Than the Scorecard Reads

Nice challenging course with a lot of holes on hills. Many approach shots are to greens well above the player. As indicated on the webpage (and emphasized by the staff) the green were recently aerated. I'll play it again when the greens are at their best.

Old Municipal Course in a great town

I cut my teeth on this public course and its condition now makes it a different course than when I began playing. It is very hilly and favors the left to right player. The greens are smallish, nice, but with a lot of grass they vary in pace... but they do roll well. Fairways are good, fair in their width and consistent. The rough is deep and makes the course a challenge now. Once, a purely local-knowledge track, now it is exactly what you see and you either play well or you score high.
