First Time Playing

A fair old school challenge

This is a very solid choice to play. The fairways are reasonably wide and mostly tree lined, and if you do hit it into the woods your penalty is fair. Pitch it out and move on. The greens are huge, with plenty of undulations. So aiming for the center of the green doesn’t necessarily mean you have an automatic two putt. If your putting is on, you can score at this course. Bunkers are almost all pancake flat with deep rough walls. It’s a great value if you use a Golf Now discount, but the full fare is a bit steep to make it a regular place for me. It’s worth an hour drive to get to though, and the conditions of the course were very acceptable. Overall it deserves a place in the seasonal tour.

Very Good!

Really nice golf course. Semi private, but they allow the public to play at certain times. Very good conditions. Some bunker shots are very very tough.

I would definitely play again.

Solid track good layout

Solid track in pretty good shape. Greens were slow but they weren’t able to cut them because of the storm. Worth the drive.

Excellent Condition & Challenge

I’ve been a member since beginning of June and love the decision I made to join.

From Blues, 6700 doesn’t feel overwhelming at all and the real challenge is once you get on the greens. The Knoll West is riddled with Knolls all over the green complexes which makes your ability to judge speed and reads crucial to keep 3 putts at bay.

Round speed varies but never more than 4hrs in my 10+ rounds.

Awesome Course For The Money!

Semi-private Knoll Country Club West was in better shape than expected! I had an awesome round and the course is undergoing maintenance improvements to improve its condition. Bring your A game.
