The fairways were very good this early in the year but the greens were rough from aireation and difficult to read. the sand traps have not been groomed and were unplayable but that is pretty much expected from a public coursed this early in the year. All told it was a round that met expectations.
With about 45 minutes left of daylight we were approached on the 16th tee and told we had to go directly to 18 because they were locking the gate to get there. We then proceeded to wait while all the groups in front of us played 18, time which could’ve been spent playing 16 and 17, and completing our round. There was no mention of a voucher for the missed holes at all from the staff.
2nd time playing this course and will absolutely be back! The course was in good condition for being early in the season. The staff was courteous, friendly, and helpful.
Early in year so course in good condition . Cart paths falling apart. Staff very accommodating..overall a good course.
A great day...
Overall, the Course was in great condition for the middle of March. The cart paths were on their last legs with frost heaves and pot holes and the greens were very slow and in need of a cut. Other than that, the view was beautiful, the fairways were good, and everybody was friendly and helpful.. I’ll be back...
Thanks for the review BozzzDad. It's great to see golfers back on the course! The greens got their first cut of the season today. Hope to see you again soon!
The course was in pretty good shape for so early in the season. Pace was a little slow because so many people on the course for the first time this season.
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.
Good course and enjoyed the round. The greens were spiked up.
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.”
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.
As always Butlers is worth the money.
The course was in great shape even after sever rain the night before. There was a lot of traps filled with water but other that killed.
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.
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.
