Very disapointed

The tee boxes were over grown so much it was like hitting out of the ruff when teeing off. The fairways were also overgrown so much that you couldn't tell the difference from ruff and fairway. The staff was very friendly and welcoming.

Mace meadows golf course

Played the rejuvenated course after it was closed down for awhile. unfortunately the water supply has been broken for 10 days due to a broken water manifold, which was being repaired.
that said" the Greens were PERFECT and the immediate area around them were very good.
But the hard fairways and uneven Tee boxes were bad.

A beautiful setting, but not well maintained

We were in the area for a family gathering and decided to play a round of golf. With little to go by, we chose Mace Meadows. Clearly the golf course has seen better days, with dried out and lumpy fairways and rough tee boxes. Golf balls hitting the hard pan fairways would often roll forever, even into trouble. Many of the greens were also in poor shape, several with bare patches, and it seemed that the pins had not been rotated for weeks., if ever. If you don’t look too closely, the golf course is in a very attractive setting.

Mace lMeadows

The course is in need of a lot of maintenance, the greens are okay but the fairways need repair work, It is in need of grass. But for the price it is okay and still enjoyable and challenging.

Improvements continue

This was my first time playing at Mace. All greens are new and the putting green is being renovated. Layout is a lot of fun, especially the back nine. There are elevation changes but no ridiculous hole locations like shots from elevated tee to elevated green. I say it's walkable but with some effort. I could see this place as a top notch mountain golf course and with some seed, sand, and fertilizer it could be in great shape. The OB areas are georgeous with pines and plenty of wetlands areas,. Hope to see a full maintenance staff to whip this place into top shape!

They have spent a lot of money on reconditioning this course. With time it will only get better.

After a great deal of down time three years, the course has come back. There is still work to be done but the course was in much improved shape. I would recommend the course as the play pace is wonderful.

In Repair

This course is currently being restored. The fairways and greens have patches that are unplayable but there is grass there and they are trying to restore the course. If you play here, just know that youre going to get terrible lies (even on the fairway), bumpy greens, and beat up tee boxes.

If youre willing to just give yourself a little kick on to a patch of grass when you hit the fairways then its ok to come out if youre able to get a cheap deal. Just DO NOT EXPECT to be playing on a well maintained course anytime in the near future. Hope that they will give this course the attention it needs and it will be a nice little spot once more.

Lots of work before this can be called a golf course

I was hoping a serious buyer would acquire this course and make it a real golf course again, but alas it's just a dog track after over a years work. It doesn't look like they can or will do what is necessary to make it a playable golf course again. Every lie on the "fairway" was on dirt in between clumps of grass or more accurately weeds. The greens are like putting on a temporary green in the fairway with gaping craters on most. It was the least enjoyable round I've had ever. This is not golfing, but if you just want to hit some balls which is about all you can claim, just go to a driving range. You'll be better off.

Course Needs Work

Used to play this course a lot before it closed down. Saw that it had opened back up last month so thought I would give it a try. Granted it had rained a few days before so the course was wet. Couldn't take a cart out so walked it. The fairways could use some work, not terrible but I like my ball to sit on grass and not in some holes. The tee boxes need work, very uneven, sand traps even though I didn't go in any need a lot of work. The greens, most were in decent shape but some you could not even putt on. I was told that they are in the process of fixing it up so I am going to come back in the spring and try it again. If they fix it up this is really a nice little course, hope they get it going because I really like the atmosphere. If you can get out for around $20 I would recommend this course.

No Greens

Unfortunately this courses' greens are in such disrepair that they are unplayable. They have make shift holes short of the greens in the fairways.

Course is closing in a few weeks. Looking for a buyer. Do you have $500,000 for the establishment and a million or two to restore the greens and irrigation system?
