Prairie Falls Golf Club opened as a nine-hole course in 1999 and the second nine was added in 2000. Though each nine has a unique character, they combine seamlessly to create a fair test. It's an ideal course for high handicappers learning the game but it's not an easy course by any means. The front nine is a player friendly parkland layout with wide and forgiving fairways. You won't be penalized if you're slightly errant. You'll have the opportunity to build up your score on the front nine, putting you in a good position for facing the tougher back nine where there is less room for error. Prairie Falls Golf Club'a back has a links-style design with narrow fairways and tricky greens with subtle breaks. It's a challenging but fair course and if played smartly there are some birdie opportunities available.

They have switched the front and back nine, so now you go off on what used to be #10. It's a par 3 and that seems a little weird to start on. We flew through the course in 3-1/2 hours with waiting on every hole on the back. Suddenly at the turn, there were new people in front of us. I think they jumped in. But it was still a fast round. Hole #5 is completely closed, but they said it should open next week. The course was nice and green. The greens still a touch patchy. Just wish they would get better mats on the range.

Front nines winds through homes and is fairly flat, but still no gimme, and the back nine is hilly with undulating and tricky greens. The greens on both nines are large and good shape.

The 9th and 18th holes are par 5s with large ponds you need to be careful of on your approach shots.

I have always enjoyed playing Prairie Falls. This last time we played the course was too wet in many areas. I understand they need to water to keep the grass alive when it is hot but, it was over watered in a lot of areas making it worse than winter conditions. Unfortunately I would not play it again until conditions improve.

Top notch public course. Friendly staff. Well manicured course. Pace was a little off that day it seemed. It took 1 hour to get to #5 tee box where we again had to wait. It did finally take 4 1/2 hours total for 18.

First off if you find a really good deal with the golfnow app the course might not honor the price. This happened to me Oct 1st 2016. Found a great deal booked it then got a call in the morning stating the golf course made a mistake on the listing and wouldnt honor the price. So when i called the golf course they were extremely rude and just didnt care.

On another point unless you find a really good deal the course isnt worth the money. They want top dollar for a $10 course. You're better off going to the Highlands great place and a good price. Plus its a fun course.

We have been playing this course since it opened. The new owner has improved conditions enormously and it is a lovely kept course now. The staff is friendly and helpful. We like that they have added draft beer. Considering buying a pass again!

Greens recently aerated and sanded, which wasn't a problem as we knew in advance. Biggest problem was the pace of play, no Marshall on course. Stacked up 3 deep on some of the tee boxes. the 2 groups in front of us were playing as a 8 some. All would tee off from the TIPS, then the 1st 3 would play their 2nd shots, and continue to the green. Next 2 groups would then play to the green , then all 3 groups would putt out and tee off as a group again. They wouldn't let the 2 some right in front of us play through even. Won't be golfing there again when there are so many other great courses in the area.

The waiting time on the course was terrible the day we played. We had an 11:06 tee time for two players. On the second hole we were already waiting 5-8 minutes per hole with three foursomes in front of us. On the 10th hole we thought it may get better if some ahead of us were only playing 9. We ended up going around a slow foursome at hole 11 and played on from there with only a group of two walkers in front of us who were playing at a normal pace. It took us three hours to play the first nine and an hour to play the second 9. The course needs to manage letting people out at their tee times better. We were told to "just go out when you are ready". There was a marshall that we saw as we were heading out to the driving range but never saw him on the course at all.

I thought the front 9 was easier than the back 9. The drainage was very good for the amount of rain earlier in the morning, and greens were consistent. The back 9 has a few holes where you can't see the ball land, and hole 16 can be a tough Par 4. Staff was great, and will play again later this year.

While this course is relatively short in yardage, the designers did a lot with what they had. Many of the holes have challenging aspects- traps, greens, etc.
