Don't play this course on the weekend. The pace of play is torture!!! 5 1/2 hours to play 15 holes and we quit! Ranger was out on the course but did nothing to speed up play. At one point there were 5 foursomes waiting on 1 hole. Numerous calls to clubhouse by several groups to no avail.

I have played this course many times but I’m not sure I will hurry back. When it’s 95 degrees and you have no shade on the course one would think they would be interested in keeping the pace of play up. Well there was no marshals at all and when I called to complain the pro shop said they were short staffed and weren’t sure they could get someone out. I’m sorry but for the price they charge this is not an acceptable excuse. It’s a beautiful course and it’s in nice condition but pace of play makes it hard to recommend it.

second time playing this course and found it just as enjoyable and difficult as the first time. I was off my game and not playing well and this course wants to eat your lunch when you are off. lot of good holes and a solid test of golf. we were on a holiday weekend trip and it was well worth the 1 1/2 hours it took to get there.

Excellent course. Not long but plenty of places to get in trouble. Need to play a few times to know where to hit the ball. Always enjoyable. The late afternoon storm came a few hours early but only lated for 2 holes and then the sun came out and the wind calmed down after the first 9.

Played two days after very heavy rains so the course had some wet spots. Early in the year, with terrible weather this spring, but the course is well maintained and meticulously cared for. Great people in the pro shop and restaurant. A beautiful place to play.

I don’t usually write reviews but this course is worth every penny I paid. Got a late season special and for November it looked great, can’t wait to play there again, especially when it’s the summer.

Course was in excellent condition. Greens were very fast. Lots of putts breaking about 3 inches from the hole which I thought was a little unfair. Other than that, I will most certainly be back.

Course is beautiful and well maintained. The Ranger seemed to push the non members on the course. Even telling myself and golf partners that we needed to improve. We looked for a golf ball 100 yards off the green, while the foursome in front of us were still on the green. Totally unnecessarily to the point of harassment. He should have been three or four groups ahead of us pushing the groups slowing down play. Very disappointed in a course we normally play. May be a while before I go back or recommend. Dan H

My friends and I love this course. It's an hour away from where we live and we still love the opportunity to get up there and play 18. Now that the tee times are dropping into the $40 range with time to get 18 holes in... you'll be seeing more of us. My one buddy is the most particular about where we play, and this is the only course out of 23 that we've played in the CT and NY areas this season, which he has said he would be a full time member at. It's challenging, well kept, long enough... it's just great. the key is not overpaying to play, and at around $40 this is a great value. The food was fantastic as well, I got the pulled pork flatbread which was truly incredible.
