Grey Hawk

What a really nice & challenging course! Especially from the white or blue tees! We played it the first time last week & we loved it so much we came back this week! The signature 11th is just amazing! We drive over an hour to play Grey Hawk! It is well worth the drive! Also their restaurant has very good food! Thanks

Great Day

The course was fantastic, difficult enough but not "tricked up". Was in very nice condition, the only thing that could have made it better was if the greens were just a little faster. The Clubhouse is beautiful with a great restaurant and bar area and a really nice patio. The staff was very friendly in the Pro-shop and in the Restaurant. Laura showed us around the entire place and was terrific! Will definitely be back!

Great Shape

Got. Golf now deal. Course was in great shape. It is a challenging course but was pleasantly surprised how well kept the course was considering how little rain we've had. Pace of play was pretty bad but there was just one group of slow pokes and 6 groups of frustrated golfers behind them. Overall, still a good time.

Back in great shape again and enjoyable

The layout of this course was never a problem. It is a collection of 18 memorable holes that all stand unique, challenging, and fun to play. The problem was how it fell into such disarray. That problem is being corrected successfully! The shape was very good. Greens rolled great. Clubhouse is excellent. Hole 7 is reminiscent of Augusta 13 and number 11 is tougher than Sawgrass 17. Longer, smaller green and always into the wind. A must play in the area.

Greens awesome prior to aeration

Awesome weather & best time to play GH is without windy conditions. Greens are great, hold good shots & fast. Pro is good guy, always pairs me up well. For me, if I can play 7-9&11 w/o lost water-bath, I'm going to score well.

Mid September Review

This was the first time I have played Grey Hawk this year. It is one of the best designs in the area. It is a big modern course, it is wide, fairly long. Every hole is unique, no two holes are close to being the same. Mainly a links style, but look out for hole 7, 8, & 9, they are have more trees, and are three of the toughest hole in the area.

We played Sunday afternoon, we played in 5:25 minutes, it was slow. There was an event in front of us, possibly the reason for the slow play. The conditions were average at best, bunkers were all in good shape. The rough had several areas roped off, from being burnt out (this has been the case for as long as I have been playing this course).

It is a fun tough course. The weather has been dry and hot, so I am fairly forgiving of the burnt out grass, but maintenance is the biggest issue for Grey Hawk. Two island greens, on in water and one on sand.

GreyHawk Blew Me Away ............

GreyHawk continues to get better, especially the greens .........but this day it was all about the WIND. The wind could turn some good shots into OB or water balls, and poor ball-strikers (like myself) didn't have a chance. The perimeters still look ugly, but if you keep in fairway, you should have a good time watching the other balls fly far & wide. Everybody needs to repair balls-marks & replace fwy divots, and more than just their own. The Hot Deals Special was great price for Labor Day, but pace-of-play was rather slow, with golfers taking advantage of the last days of Summer.

Enjoyable, challenging layout

The course is coming back. Some spotty fairways, receptive greens and a few challenging holes carved out of the terrain. If you've never played the course, it's a must than you can decide.

Challenging but fun

Course is tougher than most but fun to play. Two island greens (1 bunkered & 1 water). Water in play on half the holes. I played course once in 2016 and didn't return due to course condition. Have played at least a dozen times this year since tee boxes, fairways and greens are in great condition. Staff is great with nice clubhouse and restaurant.

Much Improved

Haven't played Grey Hawk in about 2 years and it has greatly improved since the last time I played. They took out a lot of bunkers, but is still a challenging course. The fairways were very nice and the greens were in nice condition, but need to teach people to repair ball marks! The pace of play was horrible for a late Sunday afternoon round. Need to have a ranger on the course because you should not have to wait for every shot on every hole! Overall the course is coming back to what it once was and I will play again for sure!

GreyHawk can be a Humbler .........

First, my review is biased because I love GreyHawk - the challenging layout, the increasingly better course conditions, and the Staff (Golf Pro & restaurant) very pleasant & accommodating .........but this Sunday afternoon was handicapped by some very slow play. This is a tough course for the experienced golfer, and GreyHawk can certainly eat up your time, especially if you distribute a few errant shots. I don't know if our group followed beginners or what, but usually slow players have no regard to the circumstance of backing up groups behind them. Its fun to play GreyHawk, but could have been even more enjoyable had it not been for the slow pace-of-play.
