Penderbrook Golf Course

First time playing and it’s January, low 50’s. Pace of play was excellent. Course was not bad for January. Nice layout with lots of water hazards. Don’t use driver on every hole. A fun course.

My new GO-TO course

Even in late November, this is the best condition I have ever seen the course in. New management has done a great job turning this course around since taking over. It plays much longer than advertised and with great character. Greens are in phenomenal condition with a pure roll. Staff was very welcoming and friendly. Cannot recommend this course enough.

Fun as always, members were slow though

Great round. Love this course. Members were a bit slow yesterday though. Skipped in front but the frost delay was what hurt us not so much the players themselves. Staff is great and so is the course

Penderbrook is great

Love this course. Short but fun layout with 5/6 holes over water. No driving range is a bummer but still worth it

Challenging, fun, and great value

This was my first time playing Penderbrook and it was a very pleasant surprise, especially after reading some of the reviews. The course was in great condition. The layout is challenging but fair, the fairways and greens firm and fast. There are a lot of elevation changes which make for some blind shots where you may not see where the ball will end up so, combined with the shots needed over water and narrow fairways make sure you have extra balls. The staff is very accommodating and friendly. I will definitely be going back, as it is one of the nicest courses in the area!

Much Improved

Last year it seemed the course was about to close. The greens and first cuts have been greatly improved. Course is fun to play with different levels of shots. Pace of play can be an easy but wasnt on my day. Its a good rate and located in prime area. Its a must play

If you pay $35 for a round it is ok for the rate. The conditions were pretty bad. I would not recommend paying anything more than $35 otherwise you will be very disappointed. I don’t need a great course to have fun, but this course is not good at all.

Try and get it for $20s.

PGA level course

This is a great course. Can't beat the price for all the yardage you get. Challenging but super fun. The conditions were the best I've seen from any other course around. I'd play this every week if I had a choice.

Great value for the money

Got this course on a hot deal. No real starter after I walked around for 15 min til my teetime when a teenage kid goes "alright well here you go, you.can play with this guy if you want, if not that's cool."

Then got on the tee and it was great from there. Fun course using all my clubs.
Only negative was on a few par 3s they moved the tee box forward which is fine, but didn't have any kind of yardage available, so I was totally guessing which got me to overshoot multiple times.

Would play again for sure.

Surprisingly good

We (wife and I) try to never play the same course twice each year, but Penderbrook will be the exception. Excellent course in very good shape. Fun to play. Glad we discovered it. Even the carts were exceptionally clean. Only letdown - 9-10th hole nowhere near the clubhouse and no toilets nearby.
