Where was the starter?

Worst round Ive played here in almost 20 years. To start, a pair of 65+ year old women booked the other 2 on our tee time. They came up and said they wanted to play themselves for “safety reasons.” They played the whites and couldnt reach the fairway on most holes. There were 2 groups (2&3some) in front of them. Slowest front 9 ever. At 10 we went around or so we thought. While waiting for the pokey 2some of old dudes the 3 slow old men jumped in front of us and then the old ladys. Even though a 20’ rule board says if you jump off at 9, you forfeit your place on 10 but with no one their to enforce it what were we going to do. We skipped 10 and jumped to 11. Not much better. Its a wide open easy course but there was no pace of play. Its a Thursday morning/afternoon! No excuse for this course to take 4+ hours. Wont be back for a while which is disappointing because its a nice course but just not worth coming out to the senior jamboree of slow play

Excellent Condition

Ive played this course many times, but not much recently. The course was in the best condition Ive ever seen it to be. The greens were true and cut well and the fairways were full and lush. I would highly recommend the conditions of this course as they were the best among all PA courses Ive golfed this year.

Nice course

The course was kept in very good condition. The distance is shorter but still had challenging holes with sloped fairways and doglegs. This was my first time here but I will definitely play here again.

Course conditions

Had a great round of golf today. The fairways and greens are in great condition. The course is always one of my local favorites. The staff is also super friendly. That means a lot in this day and age. I would recommend this course to anyone looking for a open course with challenging terrain. I golf there in late summer and the fairways and greens are well watered.

Great day of golf

This is always a great day of golf. The course layout is open. Still begining of season and am sure they did not know when or if they would be opening, so green are a bit slow and a bit rough. Am sure this will improve with more play. Thank you for being open!
