Ballamor Golf Club
The18-hole track at Ballamor Golf Club is renowned for its usage of the naturally hilly course in its layout. Brian Ault, the designer, utilized the natural terrain and thick forestry and also added subtle modern and traditional touches to create a unique golfing experience.
The golf course doesn't feature any "signature" hole, but each hole is different from the others and they employ the use of almost every type of golf shot. As a composition, the 18 holes create a course that is both challenging and fun. The course also has five sets of tee boxes. Another distinguishing characteristic of the course is its "go out and stay out" philosophy and layout. The golfer starts near the Clubhouse but doesn't end until the 18th green. This allows for a faster game and there is also a halfway house for refreshments.

Very good shape
Tee’d off at 8:20 am done at 10:15 am course had been aerated recently but fairways still in great shape. Greens fast and in excellent shape.
Ballamor 1st timer
Enjoyed a great day of golf. Staff was courteous and friendly from bag drop/clubhouse/starter.
Course was in great condition considering its early spring. Layout was challenging and greens were very good. Looking to play here again when nicer weather arrives.
The temperatures are down....
...so the green fees are down too. $49 to play the course in excellent condition throughout. It was not crowded. so we played in a little over 4 hours. It is a big course and covers a large area and some long rides from green to next tee.
Course was in excellent condition. Greens were super fast
As soon as I got there staff was very friendly. The fairways were in great shape. The greens were running super fast but very smooth and true. I was a single and behind four foursomes but the pace of play was excellent it was just under 4 hours for 18. And the bunkers were in good shape also. Definitely recommend this course,a fun and challenging track nestled in the woods.

Staff was great across the board....front desk guys....starter....bar....Samantha always does a great job.
enjoyed the lay out and course greatly
course was wet after bad rains but still in fantastic shape
Haven’t played here In awhile but as always was not disappointed. Only issue was rough was us open height. Right off the fairway. And around the greens. But overall got great deal from golf now. And had a great day on the course. Pace of play on a busy day was excellent.
Always a great course!
Greens were aerated days before our round, and the reason we got a $40 rate on an early Saturday afternoon, but putts still rolled rather well considering the conditions (and probably because they didn’t use too much sand). The rest of the course was in good shape with various thicknesses of rough and well manicured sand traps. Still one of the best in EHT!
Senior friendly , hope I get to play it again while I still can.
Perfect (but for the rain)
I played with three friends/avid golfers on Sunday. Unfortunately it rained steadily all day. That said, it was clear the course was in great shape. Greens rolled true, fairways nice. I know I would have loved it.
Staff was very accommodating. We played around w/ the tee time to try to miss the rain and they were quite helpful. Gave us a nice deal too.
All in all a joy and I'll definitely be back. If you're heading to the AC area for golf put this on your short list.
Very nice course! It would be excellent if those using the place would just fill their fairway divots and fix ball marks on the green!!!
Course was in excellent shape , challenging but you could score, would play there anytime, lunch and service was awesome can’t wait to play again
I played Sunday afternoon at 2:30 and at $69 it doesn’t get much lower unless you wait until 4 pm.
I played as a single from the white tees and even restricted to the cart path I made good time. The course was wet and soft but didn’t seem to slow down the greens. I found myself on the wrong tier each time there was a tiered green which didn’t help my putting woes. Greens are fast.
Other than the water logged areas the course is in generally good condition - tees, fairways and greens.
Water comes into play on 7 holes off the tee and while I didn’t find it to be a problem from the white tees you can easily have some blow up holes. On 3 and 18 water can be a factor on your approach shot too.
3 is the hole I want to play again. You need an accurate tee shot because of the water and then the approach is over the water to a two tiered green.
I recommend the hot dog at the halfway house which is second only to Mansion Ridge in Monroe NY.
Great layout. It is a public course but the conditions are solid. Don’t expect much when you pull into the parking lot but when you are on the course, you will be very pleased.
