Even for $24 on a Sunday, this course was in terrible shape. The fairways looked like second cut grass and the second cut grass just wasn't cut at all. Weeds everywhere, lost balls when just barely missing the fairway. Greens were ok compared to the course itself. This place is just going downhill fast.

Played at this course for many years but it's having a hard time due to the depressed local economy.

It could be better but due to the circumstances, it's a long process to get it back to its glory days.

It's still a nice course, it's just playing a little rougher than in the past.

The greens, fairways, and tee box’s need work. The back nine has better greens than the front. The layout of the course has a nice setup. Oberalll pleases with the course will go again. There just isn’t many good quality courses in Lafayette.

I used to be a member here at one time but because of the economy gave up my membership... the course was in very good condition and the tee boxes and greens were very well kept up from previous years.... Squirrel Run was at one time one of the best course to play in this area and I’m glad to see it’s returning back to that again... had a fun day playing, enjoyed my round will return again!

This course recently went from 27 to 18 holes. These 18 holes are of the "original" layout. 17 of the 18 greens were in great shape. There are 5 par 3's, with water in play on 4 of them. Very good track for the price, and staff was exceptional as always! My 80 year old father from out of town played and he raved about it the entire time! Watch the gators on # 17, LOL!!!!!

Enjoy playing this course as it has a beautiful layout, beautiful trees, lakes and

Beautiful view from elevated tee boxs,

Would like to see yardage markers on all holes as GPS does not work sometimes.

Good rates for this nice course encourage me to play their.

Also love the country feel of this course being a peaceful setting!

Difficulty finding my Golf Now reservations and we're almost rude, should have accepted immediately when I showed them on my IPhone.

Also, took a very long time to get a hamburger at the grill one day.

Overall very good staff!

The staff was great and friendly. Gas golf carts are always fun. The course was in beautiful shape but this is where it needed the extras. There was no yardage markers to be found. Out of 18 holes, we found maybe 4 150 yrd markers. No 200 or 100 yardage markers. Plus the cart paths need alot of attention.
