Great Conditions

University Park is almost always in excellent condition. The greens are very large and on the day we played they were very slow hence making it a more difficult to get the ball to the hole. Playing 10 to 19, is more target golf and thus important to know your distances and landing areas. The Course does not hard fast running fairway and the wind is up it will play much more difficult. Play from the correct tees and you can have a decent round.

A great day

From the beautiful drive through this gated community until you arrive at the bag drop, you cannot help but admire the attention to detail.The fairways and greens, bunker views leave you with anticipation of a beautiful 27 challenging holes. The tee boxes, fairways greens simply made you feel that you were in paradise. My compliments to the clubs Superintendent and team, the pride and effort showed. Lots of solid maintenance, thanks guys. I loved the layout.. See you again.

Really Nice Cousrse

We played at an excellent pace. Course was in very good shape but the greens weren’t cut as they should be. Actually they were pretty slow but in great shape. Fairways were in very good shape but cut too short.

Always a good day at UP

Beautiful day. Course was in good shape, although greens were a little slow. They were a very bright green so maybe they had just been fertilized recently? They still rolled true, so once you adjusted to the speed they were not an issue. UP is a classy place; not every day you see a croquet pitch!

Great Club

Super staff with a wonderful practice area that is fully equipped. Greens are a touch slow but the condition of the course overall is superb. Fair but tough layout. Only knock is that the par 3 are all a very similar yardage, could stand to mix that up a little in my opinion for a little variety.
