First time playing this course. Very nice conditions. Small greens which is a challenge. But they roll true so very fair! Good price for the course, but a bit too far from the Philly suburbs.

Tee boxes were not up to standard for this course. I’ve played it probably 6-8 times in the past 4 years. But I haven’t played it at all the past 2 years. Greens were slow but in fairly good shape. Fairways were average at best for this time of year

Play here about once a month usually mid afternoon. Course is always in great shape, although this time the tees were a little scruffy where they had the markers. Course is never crowded and we usually get done in under 4 hours. 3 of the pars threes are beautiful challenging golf holes, the other is underwhelming.. hundred yard shot. Nice variety on the par fours. Like the par fives as well...just wish they would move the white tees back on #18.

This is a scorers course imo. Some pretty short par 4s and 5s. Greens in great condition, rolled fairly true but a lot slower than I expected. Nice firm greens that were very receptive to spinning wedge shots. Rough not to thick, only lost balls were to water hazard. Doh! Only negative thing to report is some tee boxes are not level and some are beat up pretty good. Easy fix was to stand a little farther back from the tees.

This course was really really nice. Exceptional conditions. Greens a bit smaller than I expected but great condition. Due to the undulating fairways it could definitely use some target markers or standing yardage markers. Really like the idea of bottled water every other hole. Although a bit of a drive it was definitely worth it!

A little ways from Philly, but found the course very pleasing and in great shape. It was pretty busy on our day as most were trying to beat the rain that was coming and did arrive by hole 17. Lots of elevation changes, rolling hills, greens were good. The staff and starter were very helpful and friendly.

Interesting first hole as it is a blind tee shot and hope the ones at the bottom have cleared the landing area.

I read a few reviews that described this course as good value. The reviews are spot on. There are oh so many good points that you forget the bad. Good price, good practice area, polite staff, some challenging holes>>> just when you are about to say how easy the course is, lush rough and nice fairway., a few beautiful holes.

Not a course to practice your bunker play though and make sure you don't go there on an empty stomach.

Easily the best conditioned course in the area, always in perfect shape. Every hole is different and keeps your attention. Tons of undulation throughout the course which adds to the difficulty. Staff is always friendly, particularly the young tall one. I would also like to give a shout out to the ranger, always friendly and does a great job or keeping the pace going, particularly on weekends. Only knock on the course is they don't sell boos, so make sure you bring your own.

Great course in Amish Country. Many elevation changes and uneven lies. Water/waste in-play on numerous holes. It Has been a rough transition into spring around here so the fairways and greens were still a bit fuzzy, understandably so. Pins were in tough locations and greens were firm/fast.

No beer on-site so byob if that’s your thing.

Excellent warm weather, and the first really nice golf day this spring season. Course is always in great shape from tees to greens, and it's truly an enjoyable layout in the Amish countryside that feels different on every hole. Many hillsides, a lot of up and down. This is actually one of my favorites courses in the area, the greens are very challenging and can run fast. There are many more positives than negatives, but here are the areas that need improvement:

1. Always a starter but never a ranger. The pace can get very slow at times because nobody ever monitors after the first hole.

2. Sand traps need more work and better sand, especially fairway bunkers.

3. Front counter staff is usually NOT friendly. Frankly, often they're rude, especially the young tall guy... Need to act like they actually care about the golf customer.

4. Carts are older, and they don't have enough on very busy days, making people wait.

5. Nearly every tee box is uneven ground.

6. Greens keeper can sometimes get a little crazy with pin placement. Greens run nice, but are extremely slopey, and can be VERY hard depending on pin.

7. 18th hole is tough due to the water and hazards; watch out!
