First time playing the new Richmond Hill Country Club. The club is two weeks old so everything is tight....starting from the clubhouse to the range which has synthetic and real turf to hit from, the new carts with gps. The day was cleat cool and sunny. The fairwats were lightly overseeded for a touch of green and also the tee boxes. The greens were true and fast not sure of the hybrid bermuda but they were awesome. Not overseeded so they were quick. Fairways had great roll out. The course is a fun track not really long but very fun with slopey greens which made for some challenges. This course still has some turf time but for winter play is excellent. Will be back.
Called Richmond Hill Golf Club now
This course is called Richmond Hill Golf Club and is totally renovated. All new greens, fairways, and tee boxes along with a newly built club house.
Course Undergoing Full Renovation!!
I live on this course and condition has declined over the years, but ignore that history. It was recently sold and the new owners are dedicated golfers. They have closed for renovation including hiring back the original groundskeeper, Construction of a bar/clubhouse/restaurant, and a PGA professional redesign. The conditions are already being addressed. This course is now a multi-million dollar project that will create one of the best courses in the area. Keep your eye out for the reopening in the Spring of 2019.
NOT WORTH IT
I have played this course around 10 times. When I played earlier this year, I thought maybe its just this time of years for the greens to be in this bad of shape. I was wrong after playing this last time I would rather commute an extra 15 minutes and pay 10 dollars more or cheaper using golf now than play here. The greens are in absolutely horrible shape and some of the worse that i have ever played on. If you have ever seen Petri Dish with bacteria on it, that is what every green looks like. It is sad that someone cannot take care of this problem it has such great potential.
COURSE IN NEED OF HELP
GREENS ARE NOT FIT TO PUTT ON
TEES LACK GRASS
BROKEN WATER LINES STILL HAVE NOT BEEN FIXED
FAIRWAYS HAVE VERY LITTLE GRASS EXTREMELY TIGHT LIES.
FRINGE AROUND GREENS PREVENT PUTTING.
This Place Sucks
You're better off playing your backyard. Or putting your driveway. The greens are almost as smooth as a 1983 Chevy Geo running on diesel fuel. Fairways are sometimes as dry as the sahara and sometimes resemble a Louisiana Cajun swamp.
Overall was a good time playing this course. It is tight but that's okay. Gives you a chance to play more strategic shots with irons. Staff was helpful and friendly. Plan to go back when in the area.
Great course, Great mix of risk-reward
It rained earlier in the day so the course was cart path only. Greens looked like they were punched a few weeks ago but still in good shape. Fairways were nice, a few holes had patches of dirt in the middle of the fairway. Tee boxes were in pretty good shape. I haven't played this course in over a year and the last time I played it, it was in a lot better shape. The GN price has doubled from last year.
Go to crosswinds
This course has dead and dying greens the only good thing they have done is in the past month and all they did was let the grass grow out a little more in the fairways so you don't have a hard pan lie. They dont put anything in to it. Very short. A lot of irons off tees. Which is all it should be. Don't think to play golds just because it's short. I drive it between 260-270 on any decent drive and I play from blues at most. The greens may "roll true" if that's what you want to say but they don't have any actual breaks. The course designer is just some man and his son. I absolutely hate what they have done with it. It used to be decent. But poor upkeep has left the fairways impossible if cut short and there is no rough. There is just bad lies. No fairway or second cut. The fairways are firm with no roll though. But half the time they slope into the woods. I have had terrible experience with the staff. I called one time and the answer I got when they picked up was "sterling links what do you want." Clubhouse is a trailer. Practice green is not worth practice. Not worth the money at all. Crosswinds golf course is extremely nice they have free waters as many as you want on a hot day and the greens are perfect. It's definitely gonna be a little more with the cart but they let you play the par 3 course practically for free if you walk. And everyone just plays it to warm up anyways. The pat 3 courses greens are a little slower sometimes though. Sterling is an awful course and needs to be renovated badly. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY.
This is a fun course. Its a hidden Jen of a course greens are difficult to read, hole lay it is a bit of a challenge, over all great course will replay it often
I find this course to be extremely fun and challenging to play. The esthetics of this course are beautiful and they are doing a great job with course upkeep. I would recommend this course to anyone that enjoys playing golf!
Good course layout but plays average in length. Greens need work
Not a bad course, looking forward to playing again. Had good placement of pins and hazards. Greens were in fair shape but were bouncy when you put. I enjoyed this course overall.
Greens are good and putt true
All of the playing surfaces are good. It's pretty rough around the edges unfortunately. Course is very short and doesn't require a driver except for a couple holes. Fun track to play.
Tight, tricky and gimmicky
Very tight fairways, and lots of mounding around green complexes. That's normally OK, but far too many approach shots have no "bail-out" areas. The teeing areas were rough at best, and the grass was far too tall. The fairways were very thin and hard, giving the player a near-hardpan lie from the middle of the fairway, despite lots of rain recently. The fairways should have been rich and lush, given the recent rains. The greens rolled true, and at a pretty fast pace, but they were thin, too. The parking lot is unpaved, the clubhouse is a trailer, and the driving range is a dump.
I suggest you stop at Walmart on the way to the course and pick up a 36-pack of Top-Flite x-outs to play here, as you will lose balls.
Odd routing on several holes, too.
This is a $20 course, at best.
great golf course
good course, will play again when grass start to grow. the fairways need to have more grass.
BAD CLUBHOUSE..... CHALLENGING COURSE
My first impression when driving up to this course was that I made a mistake by booking a tee time here.... The clubhouse is the first thing you see and it is probably the worst clubhouse I've ever seen. It's just a double wide mobile home gutted and turned into a makeshift clubhouse. The driving range was in terrible shape, and the gnats were even worse! We bought some bug spray from inside and had to bathe in it to only slow the gnats down a little. With a sour taste in our mouths from the clubhouse and driving range, we finally hit the course. The course was actually in great shape and really deserves a better clubhouse and driving range than it has. Course is VERY challenging with tons if narrow fairways and lots of water on almost every hole. We had a great time on the course!
nice course. It has some challenging holes and some nice easy holes...a good mix to make a fun day. Our twosome played in a little over 3 hours on a beautiful thursday. The staff is very nice and the cost was only $12 including cart, thanks to Golf.com. The greens are in very good shape
Fun and challenging course
We were a bit uncertain of what we were getting ourselves into when we arrived, but this course really was nice. There is a lot of water and errant shots will be penalized. Fun course with an interesting layout.
SHORT BUT VERY TIGHT, NOT FOR AVERAGE GOLFER
IF YOU ARE LESS THAN 10 HANDICAP, YOU WILL TEAR THIS COURSE A NEW ONE, BUT OTHERWISE, GO ELSEWHERE FOR MORE OPEN SPACES. YOU CANNOT MISS A SHOT HERE. THEY DO HAVE A NICE PAMPHLET DETAILING EACH HOLE, THOUGH, THAT ONE DOES NOT FIND AT THE AVERAGE PUBLIC COURSE
I have always enjoy playing at Sterling Links golf course. The people are friendly and they make you feel that they want you there. The course is in good shape, but a few low areas made it a little wet in places. I will play it and recommend it to my friends.
