swamp land course
This could be a quaint small course but they are charging similar rates to much better courses, this course is really a mostly par 3. The greens had debris, the landscapers we had to wait while they cut because they weren't stopping to allow us to play. There was only one friendly person who was a marshall at the course. Everyone else seemed old and miserable no thank yous or hellos. I was embarrassed to have brought friends there and we drove 30 minutes to try this course. Very narrow and swamps all over I think they just have let everything go.
Cost does not match course conditions
Ive played here many times over the years, but I think today was the last time I'll travel out to Acton to play this course. If you get a really good deal, and are just there to hit the ball, its ok. But if you are expecting more...I dont think you'll find it.
Tee boxes are extremely hard and bare. Very little grass, and basically just hard soil. Sand traps (if you'd like to call them that) are not maintained, tons of grass inside, very little sand, and full of rocks. So be careful with striking a ball.. you may damage your clubs.
The greens were extremely hard and are very small. Even the simplest chip will hit and roll off.
As well, check the yardages on an app or rangefinder, because much of the signage both on the tee and in the fairway are inaccurate.
But like I said, if you just want to hit a ball and get some practice in AND you get a good price for your round, then book it.
It has the potential to be a really fun course, but it just seems like each time I play there, the care and maintenance has just become less of a priority.
Looking at their green fees, it lists some close to $40 during the week. If the green fees are going to be in a certain range, you expect a certain level of play and quality. Here they are not. Spend the extra $10-15 and go somewhere you know will be enjoyable
Nice short layout
Course was short but has many tight holes needing an accurate tee shot. Tee boxes are in rough shape. Had to look for an even lie. Fairways were ok but needed cutting. Greens were fast. Course is nicely set among the trees.
Needs more work
There has been a fair amount of work done on the layout of the course, most of it making the course play better. However, the course was very dry, sand traps were like concrete, and tee blocks are really rough. You can tell work is being done, but I’ll give it more time before I go back.
Staff were not at all friendly, but not rude.
Short quick coure
Neat little course. Par 3s too short. Staff very friendly. Restaurants t excellant
Course suffered some rain a day earlier but seemed unable to drain in many locations. Cart path only not completly necessary.
Worst I’ve ever played
This course has not seen water since the last time it rained. Fairways and greens are rock hard the fairways are brown and patchy. Nothing at this course is maintained even the sand traps are like rock traps. I would not recommend playing here but for the price you get what you pay for I guess.
