Greens were in great shape but slow and grainy. Fairways were mostly in poor condition with many areas with thin to no fairway grass. However, it is a fun little course to play from time to time.

Dollar a Hole

Not a great course. Tees are rough. Fairways are poor. Greens ok but slow. Not one sand trap. Lots of par 3’s. Value is okay at a dollar a hole.

good times

The staff is excellent as is the owner Tom. I only have one arm so this shorter course is fine with me. The greens are full and play true.

Nice Greens

Nice green. Most players there are higher handicapped golfers which result in slow play. Fairways are undefined

Best greens

The best greens we have played on around this area. Tom, the owner, is such a professional, caring individual. I would highly recommend this shorter par 4 course for a nice fast game of golf where your golf game will be greatly tested.

First time on the course

I had been to the driving range multiple times before finally taking the plunge and playing the course.

While I agree with other reviews stating it feels like you’re playing in someone’s backyard, I think it’s endearing.

The front 9 was a bit confusing layout wise but after that it made sense.

As someone who picked up golf two months ago I can say this is a great course for beginners as it has a little of everything.

Staff was exceptionally nice.

Fun course

For the experienced player you can try different shots. A great course for beginners. When was the last time you saw a par 6.

Makes Me Giggle

This golf course is not in good shape at all. There is no consistent grass in the fairways, The tee boxes are fairly mangled, and it lacks water on the course. Now that we got all the bad things out of the way let me get to the good. The price is very reasonable, the staff is very friendly, the layout is very interesting and fun, and the greens aren't too bad. You need to understand when you arrive you are getting what you pay for with this course. It is a laid back place where you don't have a dress code, there isn't cart path only, no snobby people. If you aren't concerned about conditions it will be fun.

Excellent little course

I played this for the first time with a friend. The staff was quite helpful and friendly. The course offered some challenges with directional carry, etc. The par 6 was interesting...

Great day of golf.

Another great day of golf at The Abbey Golf Course. Fairways a little dry but playable. Other than that a great day. Staff is friendly and helpful. Looking forward to playing there again. Two thumbs up.

HardPressedToCallThisAGilfCourse

We were genuinely excited to play this course and were thrilled at the Hot Deal! That excitement faded fast, however, as we learned that the only grass on the course was on the greens. All other parts of the course (aside from the trees) was weeds and dirt! This should not be on the Golf Now course rost. I am very disappointed that I used one of my earned Golf Now certificates on this course. We will most definitely never again play this 18!

Refreshment

The course is a great layout. It’s the only course I have played on with a par 6, but they need to add some water stations and divot dirt boxes to help with when playing those long courses helping grounds crew protecting fairway. Other than that great course to play on for the price.
