Beautiful course!!

Played this course for the first time today. It a beautiful course in its setting, landscaping and layout. This golf course will challenge your skills in keeping the ball where you have a clear shot at the flag. Not every hole but the layout and landing zones are challenging. The course, fairways rough and greens were well kept. I highly recommend to make the drive to play this course.

Great Course

We were on vacation and took advantage of the Golf Now opportunity. It is a nice course we enjoyed the challenging layout. It's located or has a country side environment. Very pretty location. I would recommend playing this course!

Fun Course

I hadn't played La Contenta in over 20 over years and made the trek up on Tuesday after Memorial Day. Made a 10 am tee time through Golfnow and walked for $28. The guy in the shop was nice and made sure I got out before the twosome who checked in ahead of me. The course was pretty much empty except for a few foursomes. I walked 18 in 3 hours and 30 minutes and worked up a nice sweat doing so, with the elevation changes on a few holes.

The conditions of the course were pretty good considering the recent wet weather. Specifically, the greens were in good shape. The layout of the course is challenging with a few blind shots and decent elevation change on at least 5 approach shots. Definitely a course that would need to be played a few times if you happened to be preparing for a tournament there.

Only real drawback was all the houses in close proximity to the course. Also, there is no driving range - just a few nets, which I don't mind but others might.

I would definitely come back if I find a good deal and know it won't be crazy busy.

You are a rare bird for walking this course. I have played this course a dozen times and have never seen a walker. Although, some of the holes are curbed disallowing driving in the fairway, there's way too many elevation changes for anyone to walk it. Unless, you're a rare bird!

Surprised Me

Hadn't played this course in quite a few years, used to play it on a regular basis. Been wanting to play it since it was sold just to see if it changed. I was very impressed with the condition of the course. The greens were in pretty darn good shape, the fairways were excellent, sand traps could use a little work. Staff was very friendly. Only got a hot dog and a beer at the turn, everything was great so I gave it a 5.I will be back to play it again.

Go Anywhere else.

The course was so wet it shouldn't have been open for business. The fairways were so wet the ball would just disappear plugged in the mud. The rough hadn't been mowed in at least a week no finding balls in there. In the summer it might be completely different but it shouldn't be open as wet as it is.

Mud and wet

The course would have been nice but the condition was wet, muddy and cold. that was not a day to play golf. The price was not worth it. We'll try in the summer time.

Everything perfect except for wetlands.

A little chilly at upper 50’s with no wind but the fairways are all wet but the greens are ok. Some Sand bungers were submerged under the water. In the late afternoon the conditions have improved. Still enjoyed the game.

Good technical course

The grounds were soaked, due to heavy rains the day before. Had a lot of trouble with the iron bc of this. The course lay out has my respect and has me wanting to return on a dry course to see if I can slay this course.

Winter golf, Fall weather

Nice quiet round, joined by a 4th in his own cart enjoyed the whole day! Front 9 greens were better than the back 9. Only complaint is the green at 18, needs a lot of rehab.

A Nice Course!!!

Played several times there now and really like the course and love the cost! It is a good course for me cause it’s fairways are larger and I have a tendency to over swing so it’s forgiving, kind of, but it is in great shape and I certainly recommend it!!!

Black Friday cou

Course was challenging with lots of elevation difference and in good condition. Greens were fast and tricky. The pace of play was terrible with groups of 6 and 5 players. Was told club members were playing skins but that is no excuse. Just short of a 6hour round and course marshal was always saying course is busy today
