Very challenging

Played Lakeside today, front 9 average skill level required, back 9 is very scenic and a great challenge, course is very hilly but a great course for the average player.

Too wet to enjoy playing.

The Woodside course was closed unless you walked because it was saturated.

I played the Lakeside course instead. Some holes on the front nine were nearly unplayable due to saturation and fairways and rough that could not be mowed. I didn't play the very hilly back nine because it was cart path only which I could not handle in the afternoon heat. The Lakeside course was packed with slow players since the Woodside course was closed

It would have been better if both courses were closed. Even at the Hot Deal price, today was not a good value or an enjoyable round of golf.

The staff here are very friendly towards golf now customers. Some courses are rude because they dont make any money on tee time. This course has 36 challenging holes. Greens are large and undulated. Highly recommend this course for all levels.

NOT WORTH IT!

I had an early tee time and they had 2 big outings later that day. There was a lot of confusion and disorganization with how they would get earlier tee times out & have the course clear for outings...even talking down to each other to guests (AWKWARD). The Course was in poor shape but locals I played with informed me that this was expected in the area. Wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone... and I shot +1... so it wasn’t that I had a “bad round.”

Woodside

Course is in good shape but could use some sand in all the bunkers. They need to do something about players not fixing there ball marks. The green are terrible because nobody is repairing the ball marks. Golf ⚽️

Great courses to play. Good value. We need to teach the golfers to fix ball marks.

Lakeside has incredible back nine

The back 9 is possibly one of the most scenic in Western, PA. The layout is reminiscent of a resort course, with big elevation changes and some blind shots without feeling tricked up.

Pace of play typically stinks here though as they back tee times up and allow groups to jump in between those coming off the front nine.

Wow

So this is the first time playing the new lakeside nine holes. Loved the new 9. I am super impressed. The pastor is amazing. Only drawback was the greens rolled will, but we're a little slow and there were so many unfixed ball marks. Other than that, the new back nice has great challenges, beautiful sights and a creative layout. Would definitely go back and play there again soon.

Great public course.

Butler's lakeside course offers a fun but challenging 18, great amenities, and friendly staff. The par 3s are very exciting and the view on 16 is one of a kind. The final 4 holes will make me keep coming back. The public aspect leaves for free range cart operators cause damage on portions of the course. All in all, it was a great experience and I will be returning.

Me & The Misses

I like this course but today very poor conditions. All the rough was 8” long. If you hit off the fairway one foot ball was unfindable. I don’t always find the fairway, lost 4 balls in 9 holes. Hoping for better conditions next time

Rick, thank you for the review. We certainly understand your comments about the rough. We're currently in the middle of the 2-week stretch in the year when grass grows at an alarming rate. In addition, the rain all this week can make it difficult to get the rough mowers out there. We assure you we're working hard to keep up through this period. Once we hit June growth will slow down considerably and rough height will be more consistent moving forward.

Decent course

Was extremely busy the day I played. 5 hours to finish 18. Greens were just aerated so were very poor. Cup edges were 1/4 inch higher than the greens? Need to be better maintained. Tee time was wrong but not the courses fault.

Rough course

Price was so low that I had to try it. Course was a mud pit and we are at a 2 inch deficit for rain around here. Too much watering or poor drainage? Grass was really unkempt. Lots of fairway damage,maybe due to water. Guy driving fertilizer vehicle sprayed tee box as we were getting ready to tee off. Rude! Lady at snack shack was great. Probably won't do this course again.

Good value for average course

Played during Steeler game, fast play that I like. Greens in very nice shape, fairways nice. Cart paths in bad shape, uneven and very bumpy. I do like the course and location. Nice restaurant and bar (wraps were large and tasty).
