A fun course to play
Still very wet but very playable and a fun course to play.
To be completely honest, the weather lately has been cold and wet. With that said, the fairways where somewhat “hairy” and there was a lot of matted grass clippings all over; making for difficult shots in many areas. However the greens were in excellent condition and rolled true (sprayed green for asthetics). Tees were in good shape as well. Wasn’t a fan of how the tees were set up (we played white and they were playing long...210yd par 3, YIKES!).
Will definitely play again in the spring/summer though!
The greens were great. Course was still really wet from all the rain, cart oath only. Great time.
Beauty on the Lake
These is an excellantly laid out tract with lake views on practically every hole and yet the wrap around lake is never an imposing hazard. It is always well maintained with perfectly rolling fast greens. This course is also one of the most playable in the area during wet months.
Wonderful Greens! Enjoyed entire course thoroughly!
If you want a challenge putting, then try The Lake course at Goose Pond. Perfectly smooth, a challenge to read but true, and a real challenge approach putting to that apple-basket. I'll be back regularly. Teeing grounds are all manicured. Fairways are in nice shape, few divots or imperfections. Rough was rough, and grabby [hated it], but all the more incentive to hit fairways. Frog hair and fringes were fair to chip from. Four sets of teeing grounds made it a reasonable challenge for any golfer of any skill. I had to restrict myself to the Blue Tee's, one up from the Champions Tee . . . at 67 I don't have the "girth" to hit it further than 240-250 necessary to play back. You'll enjoy it.
Still a Great Course
Goosepond Lake Course was one of my first loves in golf, and I have been playing there for 25 years. This past round was my best ever there, but I do want to point out there the greens are quite dry and deceptively fast or slow, depending on the hole. There wasn't a lot of consistency. Otherwise, everything was in stellar shape as usual!!
Hills, valleys, lakes, mountain views – all good – true greens – stayed at the resort campground next door.
Golf with my dad
Course is in good shape. Greens, tees and fairways are in excellent shape. However, the sand traps are AWFUL. They are totally unplayable. We played on Tuesday. The course is closed for maintenance on Monday. Apparently, that does NOT include sand traps. Also, the course is priced at least 20 percent too high. This FACT may account for the lack of business.
Lots of water on course. Most of it in play. Drive the ball long and strong to give yourself a chance at hitting greens in regulation. Lots of elevation change. Be thoughtful in club selection. Greens are big and tough to gage the break thereon. Pitch as close to cup as possible to give yourself a chance of making a put. The scenary on and around the course is beautiful. Make sure you look up and look around. Enjoy the day.
This course is 30-50 yards to long on all the par 4’s and 2 of the par 5’s for the average lady golfer. It is very beautiful and in great shape. Today is the 1st time I have played it and not sure I will play it again because of distance. My husband loved it and senior men probably would for sure because the course for them overall is only 73 yards longer for them then the ladies which is very sad for the ladies. What makes it even worse is that the Golf Operations Manager is a female, you would think she would be more mindful of the ladies then that.
Goose Pond doesn’t disappoint.
Course in great shape. It’s long from the forwards which is a good challenge. Geese everywhere but on the greens. Very impressed. Played three times there and always delivers a fine time.
Always a beautiful place to play with water views on every hole.
Always a good course
The Bermuda fairways were on the verge of hibernating for winter but still in good shape. The greens were excellent. Course was very well groomed. Goose Pond Lake is always a fun and scenic play. Weather was cool (55) but no wind and we dressed appropriately.
