For as dry as it was the course was in great shape. Greens always fast and true, fairways when hit where green and plush. Highly recommend this place if you can get on

Played on a Sunday afternoon because the afternoon rate is better. The course is busy so there was heavy foot traffic on the greens likely due to previous watering.

Its best to arrive early enough to use their practice facilities. Its a tough course on the first visit so i recommend checking the hole by hole on the website and using a yardage app. Placement form the tee is key here and requires some thought

Played here last Sunday. It was a bit hot out but the course was amazing. I took some of our rental tenants that were in town from our company http://erierentalproperties.com They loved the course as well. Will definitely be back!

Played on a Sunday afternoon as a twosome pace was great on the front nine and a little slower on the back when we caught up to a group. Still finished in 4 hours though. Have a choice of 5 tees to play from so pick carefully as you will note the slope ratings are high due to the course difficulty.

This is the best course in Erie that we have played to date and it was actually a little hillier than expected.

Reading the hole descriptions from the website was very helpful in playing the course for the first time and we cant wait to p[lay it again.

We used the ranger and the practice green prior and it helped getting the feel for the green speed of 11 and they did roll very nicely.

Course demands care in club selection from the tee box and there a few forced carries some if which cannot be seen from the fairway

This is a great golf course and one of the best public courses in the Erie, PA area. This course offers a wide variety of holes that offer risk or reward scenarios. The course can produce some high scores if attacked to aggressively, but can be tamed with a quality well thought out round.

This course is a great test of your club selection, manage the course well and you will score well. If you just drive every hole you could be in big trouble. You will use every club in your bag, you will need them. I have played the course twice now and both times were cart path only....would love to play this course when you can use the carts on the fairways could make for a more comfortable length of time to play. Still all in all it moves along well.

This is easily Erie's(actually Millcreek) best daily fee course. You'll use every club in your bag. The greens are medium fast and the fairways are generous. Some of the views are spectacular(waterfall by the 4th green). Pace of play is always decent also.

The course played difficult and very soggy fairways made it hard to find a firm place to hit the ball. Holes 1, 8, and 16 were killers. Weather turned lousy as a cold front came through. I would not want to play this course without a cart as its hills would wear me out.

The course itself is layed out very well and every hole is in and of its own beauty. WW is kept in pristine shape when keeping in mind how weather is in northwestern pa can be. Overall great experiences there.
