Great Course

Great course. Even after a thunderstorm, the course was very playable. Bermuda bent fairways were in great shape, only surpassed be the greens which were just about perfect- but tricky. The staff was friendly and helpful. Not much water to worry about. Fairways are sloped and not just billiard table fairways.

Great shape

Kiln Creek has vastly improved under the HOA, making it an enjoyable and challenging course.
Greens are fast, fairways are in great shape, and the new golf carts and technology are awesome!

good value

Booked on Golf Now, Hot Deals, a great value. The course was wet, path only, but they had kept the course playable. Can't slam a course for problems caused by poor weather. We play Kiln Creek 5-10 times a year. A good course, well maintained and expertly managed .

Good course gets better

I've been playing this course as a guest for 28 years plus and can honestly say everything from pro shop staff, restaurant and the course are better than ever. The course is in great condition, true fast greens, fair rough and best bunkers in the area. Although the course was a little wet it was very playable.. Don't forget to enjoy the NEW restaurant great beer and beverage selection and great food. Don't pass this course up.

Always a Great Deal

Love this course. Greens roll very well and are quick but not too dramatic. Fair challenge for all levels. Only downside was that it took a while to get checked in.

Nice Course

The staff friendliness here is top notch. From check in, to the starter, to dropping off the cart at the end . The Pro Shop is nice and fully stocked with anything you may need. The Men's Locker Room is very nice. You can see the members here take pride in the amenities.

The course is overall nice. It didn't wow me with design or the layout but the courses overall well maintained conditions made up for it. It was a bit windy when I played so make sure you pick the appropriate tee box for your game. Tee boxes were well maintained and flat. The fairways rolled out nicely and were in good shape. The rough was not too long and I would say most definitely fair. The bunkers were very nice. The sand was a consistent depth throughout all the bunkers I found myself in. The edges of the bunkers were well manicured. Now the greens were rolling really well. Not too fast and mostly smooth. The only issue I noticed was that there were more than a handful of unfixed divot/pitch marks on every green. This was disappointing to see. There were also a handful of greens that had some clear damage from golfers and some invasive grasses moving into the greens. I hope the club can get those two things under control.

Overall a good course for the money that I would recommend to fellow golfers. The 4 out of 5 overall rating stems from the lack of a unique flavor that I expected and the greens with the issues I stated.

Kiln Creek golf

Very challenging for ladies from forward tees. Not so much for men from white tees. Kind of short for me from white tees.

Great course

Course was in great shape but the greens were just aerated. Sand traps had the best sand in the area and were groomed which made getting out was based on the players instead of poor quality sand.

A Must Play

Course was in great shape, staff was great and the value was great! I will certainly come back and play again! Living in Chester with an hour drive to this course, I was excited to play this course and it did not disappoint. Anyone in the area that hasn’t played here, you need to put it on your list.

Nice course - sllooooooow play

Challenging golf course. Nice layout and in good condition. Amenities were nice. The round took 5 hrs and 15 minutes. 3 foursomes on each hole most of the round. No Marshall was around to move play along. I’ll give it another try but will not go back if the play is that slow.
