Great value

It’s winter, so don’t expect everything to be pristine. The tee boxes were okay and the fairways were reasonable (winter!). We thought the greens were terrific ... fairly firm, quick and true ... the best greens we’ve played in the area this season. Pace was a wee bit slow, but on such a beautiful day we really didn’t care. We will definitely play again at its reasonable pricing.

Overall good course. Good layout and moderately challenging. Pace was a little slow this time but generally has been good in the past.

Nice little course.

Nice layout, green were true and fairways were just ok. Bang for your buck was excellent.

Great course

Course was in good shape. A bit wet from rain so some soft areas in fairways so good to stick to path & avoid damage to fairways.

4 of us played today and although the course was busy the pace of play was excellent it only took us 3hrs 15 minutes. The Staff were very friendly and the clubhouse improvements are very good, the fairways are not the best but didn’t spoil our round. We play this course most years and always enjoy ourselves.

Very good value

This course is very flat with mostly elevated greens. They've installed some new greens and they are filling in nicely. The fairways are average but mostly OK. Mulligans, the restaurant within the clubhouse has excellent food with a friendly staff. The overall experience is very good and we go back often and we recommend it to others.

Saturday at the tow

The inside staff was very friendly. The course was in very good shape. The greens are very good a little slow but good. They are new. The rough is rough which makes you to keep the ball in the fairway. This is the first time I played there since the new greens. My son and I love it. We had a great time. Saw a lot of our friends that we haven’t seen in a while. It was great

Greens are being redone later this month. If we had known this would have chosen another course. Greens were very poor. I look forward to seeing how the new greens will enhance the course.

Couldn’t recommend the course at this time we will see with the completion of the new greens.

My brothers were in town from Connecticut, we decided to play a round at the last minute. BGC is a nice course, staff is friendly, play was at a nice pace. Good course to play, some nice short holes as well as some nice long holes. We had fun challenging each other as brothers do!

This course is not and probably never will be, well maintained. But, with that being said, the course has some interesting and challenging holes and is fun to play occasionally. Rates are reasonable so go for it!

Course was in as good shape as I've ever seen it, but greens are still thin.
