The course offers a moderate challenge for a very good price. In season courses can get pricey in the GVA Newlands is very affordable year round.

If you like or need to ride then it's fantastic value. Carts are only $5/rider when many courses in the area charge $30-$40 just for the cart.

Greens can be a bit bumpy and fairways a bit dry depending on the day and time of year but playable.

A few holes require a good tee ball and a few are grip it and rip it.

Appies after golf are excellent and offered at 1/2 Price with a golf receipt.

If you are looking for challenging golf and good conditions not the course for you but if you're looking for an affordable round give it a try.

I was told the greens had been aerated two weeks ago, but they were still extremely bumpy. The fairways and rough were patchy, but the bunkers had plenty of nice sand (although folks often seemed to leave them unraked).

This is the kind of course that doesn't really fit in the spot it's in. There are several odd sharp doglegs with tall trees off the tee blocking you from cutting the corner, so hybrid/short iron is often the play. Several holes require you to hit past a corner, but too much farther and you're in the trees, so distance control on the tee shots is important. Some players may be tempted to hit extreme hooks or slices into blind landing areas, but that's quite a risk. Play the course how it's meant to be played and it's pretty fun -- there are a few longer holes, and the greens have interesting contours.

The folks I met there were friendly, but players hitting into trees and searching for balls made the round a bit longer than average. There are also several spots where people are teeing off near paths to other holes, so keep your eyes peeled to avoid being a target!

The course is fairly pretty, but has houses along some fairways. I spotted a bald eagle near its nest, which was nice.

First really nice day this year to play golf. Was very busy for a Monday. The pace was very slow. Almost five hours to play. The greens were recently punched. It was still a nice day to play golf. $20 to walk on Golf Now. You can play for $25 including a cart through pro shop. Not a great deal on Golf Now.

The good: the course was much dryer than I expected given all the precip we've had over the past month.

The bad: they were in the process of aerating and it felt like they were following me around.

I was so excited to play a round on a beautiful fall day. Golf on the last day of October in weather where my playing partners were in shorts. However, the pace of play at this modest course was the worst I have experienced in many years! It took us over 4 hours and 45 mins to play 16 holes at which time I left because I was not going to finish 18 before it got dark and trick or treaters would be at my doorstep. My playing partners who are frequent golfers quit after 10 holes because all the waiting on every shot and every tee box! It took us 40 mins to play the first 2 holes - a par 5 and par 3! Never again. No course marshal - no help or assistance for those out on the course. They need to seriously up their customer service before I will spend my hard earned money playing this course.

Considering all the rain we had the day before and the morning of play, the course was actually in good shape except for #16. The greens still showed the effects of punching and were a little spongy but very playable, nonetheless.

Not my favorite course but still a great value thanks to GolfNow.

Fun course for Beginners and newer golfers. Course maintenance needs to improve to attract most golfers. Fairways are very dry and green grass is patchy in many areas. Greens need to be cut somewhat raggy. Some awkward holes for 1st time golfers so follow the card but better to play with someone that knows the course.

Many better choices within 10-20 minute drive.
