Do they have a greens keeper?

The only complaint that I have with this wonderful golf course is that they need to do something about the state of the greens before it gets out of control! The grass appears to be dying on them and there are big patches of sand to putt through.
Don't get me wrong, it isn't every green, but if they don't "nip this in the butt" they are going to have the same problem they have over at Knollwood Old course.

Nice course - poor conditions

We really liked this course, but tee blocks and greens were in poor condition.

Bad shape

The course was in extremely bad shape. The greens were half bare and the tee boxes were a disaster. I will not be returning back to Knollwood this summer.

Maintenance !

Majority of greens were unplayable.
A little too much money for mid week based on the conditions. May try again next year.
Staff was great, organized & friendly.

Not worth the money

The condition course was horrible. Some patchy fairways and a few brutal greens that are really unplayable.

Charging $50 with a cart is way out of line. Definitely nit worth the $$

The most impressive thing was the entrance gate

No tee blocks, no yardage markers , terrible greens, tee blocks that were chewed up. Sad because the course could be decent. Won’t ever be back

Worst course I have ever played.
All members of our party agreed
Greens were like most courses fairways (at best)
Fairways were hard and burnt out
Tee Boxes were worst than my neighbors back yard
Played with a CPGA pro who was so disgusted (even though he paid the $73.00) that he left after 9 holes.
Charging that kind of money for that course is a crime
Not that it matters to the course, but we will never go back and certainly will never recommend it to our friends.

Condition

This course needs lots of work
Tees, greens are poor to fair.
No sand traps.
Poor cart paths.
Fairways were OK but I would not play there again - others in our group felt the same.

Stay away! Yikes

Stay away. Paid 105 for a (hot deal) two players and a cart which is laughable for a course in this shape. Half of the greens on the course are in awful shape and bare, tee boxes are beat up. There’s so many better courses for 50 bucks a person with a cart around. No food was available on course, no cart girl either if you like to drink a beer or two.

No Amenities at New Course

Restaurant not open. No beverage cart person. Greens spotty, some with sand on them. Won't go back this season although fairways excellent, rough very playable and power cart price most reasonable in the area.

I was very disappointed in the condition of the golf course I have golf at Knollwood many many times

I found the Teebox weren’t even in place the Tees are in bad condition and so are 75% of the greens.

The greens are not properly cut they’re very slow and poor condition

Far Better Courses to Play in the Hammer

Disappointing experience here. The course was in poor shape with the greens being particularly rough - very patchy and carpet-like. The layout already is rather poor, but the conditions made it unpleasant. There were some nice holes that redeemed the experience somewhat, but unless there is a smoking deal on (sub $30 for 18), I would be remiss to return.

Poor Condition

Tee blocks are not well maintained, greens on front 9 were in very poor condition. Back 9 were better but have not been cut.
