Having played Toftrees many times, I thought I would treat my wife to a day of golf at the great golf course. My wife absolutely loved it. Conditions were excellent. Greens were a little spotty but very playable. However, the starter originally had us paired with another twosome, but penciled in a twosome into our tee time at 11:54 making 6 players for one tee time. Starter asked the walk-ons if they wanted to play with the other twosome we were scheduled to play with and the walk-on group was given our tee time which is not right. The twosome that walked on should have to wait for an opening not "squeezing" us out of ours. Now I had great time playing the course, and I know I am unusual in requesting to play with another twosome since people like to play by themselves, but your course needs to reconsider their tee sheet procedures. I recommend this course to anyone in the area.

Toftrees golf course is a very nice course the people that work in the pro shop are great and the people that work in the club house serves great food and are very friendly. The only bad thing about this golf course is it's expensive to play there.

Billy the starter was best ever. They had an outing earlier in the day so it was a bit tracked up on the greens. They need to put out some signs to repair ball marks on the greens. Way to many.

Overall it was a spectacular day. That course is bangin!!

The pace of play was incredibly bad. We were a two some and took over 5 hours to play. No ranger on the course to help faster groups get by slower when they refused to let us play through. Will never play there when it's busy again.

This course offers a challenge for all golfers. The elevation changes from tee to green put a premium on iron shots and club selection. Around the greens you'll need a 'Lock Pickers Touch' with your short game as the green will run out and provide some tricky undulating putts. You will use every shot you have in the bag at some point. Do if you're looking for a fair challenge and test of your game then this is your next stop.

Service wasn't as good as I'd expected for a resort, but it was past summertime so maybe staffing levels were low. Price was very good for the condition of the course.

Layout was good. Not overly difficult. Course was wet from recent rains and rough was thick at places. Wet lies in some others, but in areas as expected. If you were in the rough on some holes it greatly affected reaching the greens.

Sand traps were in good shape. Not overly soft but raked and maintained as you'd want.

Tee boxes were all in good shape. Lots of tee box options to let you pick your challenge.

Fairways were the same as the rough. All well maintained and some were a bit too wet due to the rain. Only one fairway, number 8, wasn't in great condition and was under repair and well marked for you to see from the tee box.

So the kicker is the greens. Extremely fast. I golf frequently and I couldn't adjust until the back nine, 3 putting 7 of the first 9. I think the back nine are more flat than the front. I would have preferred it the opposite to get the speed down first. All were playing the same so the maintenance crew knows their job. So this is the kind of course where you need to hit your approach shots and get it close in hopes of two putting and par the hole. This is what killed my scoring as the layout was manageable.

There was minimal water hazards, nothing like island greens or a plethora of traps.

Nice course but other than the greens it's an average course that's well maintained with greens that will spank you if not ready.

Front nine is beautiful - huge white pines border the fairways. That nine is in great condition. Several memorable holes. A delight to play.

The back nine is regrettably the opposite - holes lack distinction, poor design and not in very good condition. Three holes are adjacent to a noisy road.

Pace of play also bogged down on the back.

4-5 stars for the front nine and 1-2 stars for the back.

The pro shop employees were friendly and helpful.
