Crane Lakes

Very challenging course from the black tees.
Water in play on many holes from black tees . Carries of 200 yards off tee, several par 3 over 200 yards.
Greens were a nice speed with subtle undulation.
Course was soggy due to all of the late afternoon thunderstorms.
A fun course to play

Not Fun

Got to the course only to find out cart path only. They could have told us when making the tee time.
On the tenth hole they inserted a twosome of people who just started enjoying the game in front of us. As we waited for the tee they teed off, bumped chests, and preceded to dance and kiss.. This went on for a couple of minutes. Not a big deal but the rest of the round we waited on every shot. We were a threesome waiting for a twosome. I can put up with some of this, especially when new people are taking up the game, but the course was empty behind us and there was no reason to slip this twosome in front of us. On one hole while we were waiting I read the nice note they have posted on the cart. Specifically they have a threat that if you go on a person property they are "heavily armed". Really?

Great condition!

Course is currently in excellent condition. Tee boxes, fairways and greens exceeded expectations. Staff is very friendly and informative. I feel very comfortable at this course. There is water pretty much on every hole. Water may not be in play on every hole but it’s not to far away. Beautiful course!

Always in nice condition

This course seems to always be in very good condition. It's tight, and there is a LOT of water. I got around the course without losing a golf ball . . . this time. But when you play here it's best to bring extra balls.
The greens were fast and have some subtle undulations, so practice your putting before setting off. Though the course is relatively short there are some holes that have some good carry from the tee over water, so choose your set of tees carefully.
I met a nice couple playing the course for the first time and had a pleasant round. The amount of play was very light due to rather warm weather so the pace of play was pretty fast - just three hours.

Great Condition. Very Challenging!

Besides the blistering heat, this is a great course! It may be short, but that doesn’t matter. The fairways are narrow, there are hazards everywhere, and the greens are FAST! Well worth the money. Very fun to play. The Club House crew was friendly and helpful for first time golfers.

Nice short course

Nice course, little tight at time for a new player. Flew in from out of town, premium rentals are in terrible condition. Would not recommend rentals but the course is nice.

Bruce-
I don't believe you received the premium rentals. We offer Mizuno and Taylor Made Premium Rentals. I followed up with my staff and you played with the Standard Tour Edge Rentals. Next time you play here, just mention this incident and we will cover the cost of the Premium Rentals and make sure you do get the correct ones next time.

Really Good Condition

Our group plays here a few times a year mainly because they take such good care of the golf course. On the surface some see a simple par 66 short course, but the golf course requires some precise shots if you want to score well. The greens are exceptional and the entire golf course is well manicured. The staff has always been friendly. The pro shop is well stocked. A very well ran organization.

Social Distancing

Course was in excellent shape. Pace of play was fabulous and free bottled water. The only downside was there was no social distancing on the practice green or driving range. I believe there were 20-30 kids taking lessons on the practice green and driving range and nobody wearing masks including the trainers.

Bring extra balls...

Great course, I'm a total hack and probably lost 9-10 balls to the water, yeah, there is water, hence the name. I would really appreciate better information on regarding the course, something at the tee box so you know where water is, how far ahead (especially on the first tee) the water is etc. They keep telling me they have cards available showing all of that but are always out. I would encourage them to put something online, people could then add it to their phone and have a nice point of reference as they enjoy the day. Beautifully kept course, great carts, nice staff.

Wet

We enjoyed the beauty of this course, but you have to hit over water, what seemed like, every hole. The course on this day was a bit too wet, so it was cart path only, which takes some getting use to if you depend on GPS.

Hidden Gem

Second time playing course. The staff was professional and courteous. The pro shop is well stocked. The driving range is well kept. The carts are clean but GPS would be great. The course is immaculate, a lot of water hazards and not for a beginner. We enjoyed the host of ducks. The pace was the only draw back, relaxed group in front of us and a fast group behind us, “rush to wait”. We played din the rain on Memorial Day but still nice. Excellent course for the money. Would recommend course for intermediate players. The ponds are deep don’t look for stray balls.
