Big potential

Overall layout is great. A true test of golf skill. Hills, contours and plenty of trees and water. Greens were fast but could have rolled much better. Fairways a bit fuzzy but not horrible. 49 years ago this course was top notch. I’d like to see it get back to that someday.

Back yard fairways!

I felt like I was hitting in my back yard when I got in the fairway. Way over grown and so many weeds and different types of grass!! I like the course lay-out. Some greens where nice but most had dead spots! This course used to be so nice. Not sure what happen. Won’t be coming back anytime soon.

Had a fun round. Due to being the first time playing, I needed a little "direction" on how to get around the course but the local players were very friendly and helpful. The course was in fair shape for the heat and played well. Fun time.

Good shape for winter

Course is in great shape. Greens are typical for winter but rolled very smooth. A challenging layout and fun to play.

worked to perfection

Found the course to be in good condition for the time of year. I was a little disappointed in the condition of the greens.

Hidden Gem

I've played Northwood many times over the last 5 years. I will say the new owner and staff have brought this place back to life. Fairways are setup perfect for the dormant grass for winter, being about 1/2 inch longer than summer cut. This will make the course playable for the cold winter months. The greens held shots well and puts rolled true. Overall a great experience and 2 of us played 18 holes in 3 hours. I will be playing there again this winter.

Great course and great layout for the money. It could have been mode a little better but I understand that there had been a lot of rain previous to my round. Overall great experience.

Better than expected

Played today 7/3/19 and I can say that for the price for the round I was surprised that the course was in as good of shape as it is for such a low price. It's not in the kind of shape a private course would be but for $21 you get a fun and challenging (at least for me)(high handicap) 18 holes and better than expected greens really for the price the greens were well kept. Will definitely play here more often.

Nice course but. . .

Nice course layout and nice greens. Please fix the fairways! I think there was 3 different types of grass in the fairway. Need to be cut lower too. Would have rated it higher if fairway was nicer.
