Play Elsewhere

Tee boxes, fairways, greens all in poor condition and not because of summer weather. Course is not being maintained and it shows it. Played the course 4 yrs ago and enjoyed it, but will not be going back anytime soon. Many other courses in the area in far better shape and a better use of your golfing $$$.

Horrible Everything

Course was much too expensive for the abysmal quality. Have played much better courses for less than half of the price. Greens were in terrible condition, tee boxes had few places that weren’t torn up, and staff was rude. Will never be returning and I sincerely hope nobody else does.

Walked

spiraling down

I moved to this area 8 years ago and was very much impressed by this course when first played, hadn't been back for a while and played recently. What a shame. Tee boxes are in horrible condition, fairways are at least half dead, greens have so many ball marks you can hardly put without hitting a bump. The fringes have been taken over by weed (crab-like) grass.. I'm no expert but I think this can be blamed on the weather only to a certain degree as all courses in this area are struggling but this just seems to be poor management of the course. The Eastern Panhandle of WV is starving for a decent public golf course.....help!!!!

HUGE disappointment!

I’m glad this was a “hot deal” and I only paid $20 for 18 holes. Poor upkeep on the tee box and greens, very patchy and rough. Sand traps were actually dirt and rock traps. Walked into one and my shoes didn’t even leave tracks. Gentleman at the counter when we checked in was far from friendly. He literally tossed the cart key on the counter to my husband. Weeds along the fairways were way too high. I will not be returning, even for $20.

Less than stellar

Started off poorly with the older guy working the pro shop tossing the cart keys on the counter after verifying my reservation. Young lady working in the snack bar is the only reason it was remotely pleasant. Each tee was good but almost every green was burnt to a crisp. Very little difference between the first and second ruff and the bunkers were not sand but instead topsoil with huge rocks mixed in. Water hazards were dirty without filtration which totally took away from why they were there. Paid 19 with tax but definitely would not pay the club price to play. I can mark this course on the “do not return list”

This place has gone downhill

I use to enjoy playing this course over the years but sadly it appears they have completely lost it. This use to be a great “bang for your buck” course. I’ve watch this course drastically decline over the last 3 years. The fairways are patchy, the greens have a ton of dead spots, and anywhere else is weeds. Telling customers the reason is because we had a lot of rain or not enough is not a valid excuse. Other golf courses deal with the same weather and they look much better than Locust Hill.

Make sure you hit fairway

Lost more balls on this course than I can ever remember, lol. 1st cut was so thick that unless you were on top of the ball looking down you would walk right past it! My back 9 I had to buy more balls. This will make me a better golfer and fully appreciate watching the best I can where I hit. Demanding course and beautiful. Can’t wait to get back and learn from the ‘ball-stealer.’

First time at Locust

My husband and I played this course on Saturday morning. It was just ok. Mike was very friendly and helpful. However, the play was very slow.
There wasn't a course ranger to keep people playing along.
It definitely isn't a course for women. There were a lot of very difficult holes, even from RED.
We won''t be going back

Need a variety of shots to succeed

At no time do you feel like you’re playing the same hole again.Last four holes are a true challenge.

Course closed but still tool my booking

Management at this course is sub par. I showed up with a tee time pre paid and found out they were having a tournament. The manager was very rude because I was the second person to come in and ask about it.
