Woodside

The storm that closed Butlers’s golf course last week left a lot of trees down, the course still was in very great conditions, tee box’s, greens, fairways, and the roughs. They are all well manicure well. The one issue is not with Butler’s staff it is with the inconsiderate golfers that do not replace divots on the fairways and on the greens.

Tees off around 12:45pm....it’s 5:10pm and we are only on 15

No one policing the groups on course making sure they are keeping up with pace of play. Very frustrating. Currently sitting on 15 tee box and had time to write the review. Shouldn’t take 5 plus hours to play 18.

Fairly Impressed

First time on the grounds. Was surprised with all of the amenities. Staff was great and helpful to a first timer. Quite a drive from #9 green to #10 tee. But I'm just nitpicking. It was a great afternoon. Considering the hurdles the staff have had to jump this year. The course was in great shape. It was challenging. But not to the point of having to bring a half dozen balls. Worth more than $30. (But dont tell them I said that! ;)

The staff members are very nice. However the cart paths for the most part are absolutely destroyed. The course itself has a decent layout but the greens are not consistent throughout 18 holes. Some are fast some are slow. For the money it's not a bad course but I'd much rather keep driving past Elizabeth and head to Cedarbrook

Perfect Day of Golf

The tee times were spaced every 15 min. We didn’t wait on any hole. We played in 3 hours. The course and greens were in excellent shape.

A tough walk

If you aren’t in shape, this course is a tough walk. It’s a nice layout, but hilly, with particularly tough climbs on the back nine. The corse is in fine condition despite the rain the last few weeks. The greens are a tad slow.

First Time Playing

Very accommodating staff. Very friendly to the 1st time user.
Provided user with ‘course book’ that was user friendly to the new attendee.
Recent storms dropped many trees, which were diligently being removed. Chain saws and chippers are not normally heard on a course and somewhat a distraction.
Greens in excellent condition and ran true. WILL DEFINITELY BE BACK!!!!

Which way should I hit.

As this was my first time playing this course I found myself a bit confused. I wa at the 4th or 5th tee box and it appeared to dog leg right. I aimed that direction planning to cut off the fairway and be closer to the hole. After I hit a beautiful drive over the trees and went to see where I landed I noticed I hit into the fairway on the next hole heading towards the small pond. A little course map.on the score cards could help. Other than that it was good day on a somewhat challenging course.
