We gave up after 12 holes because the pace was so slow. There should have been a marshal available. After the first 3 or 4 holes.there was a back up of 4 groups at each hole. In addition the grass on the greens was being cut between players. Overall it was a rather unpleasant experience, which was a shame as it is a very nice course.

started nicely no hold ups really, a few slow ones that we played through. Got to the 10th and the water sprinkler system came on over the green while we were trying to put, got soaked, continued on the 11th, 12th, and 13th my wife said call it quit's soaked totally. The course super couldn't seem to get it shut off. Knollwood gave us a rain check for both of us.

No problems until the 10th, a very nice course will definitely play more there, hopefully the sprinkler system works properly next time.

Course is short but playing the 'Blues' is better challenge.

Still only 5500 yds. but much more fun than the 'whites'.

The course is nice, in the fall, a bit too many fallen leafs. The only real issue for me was the course is a bit too short for my game. Too many par 3 holes, and very short par 4's, forced to wait on every hole. If you like short course, i would recommend this one.

Went on the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend with my brother and it was perfect weather for golf. First time at the course for both of us. There also were not a lot of golfers on the course so we could take our time and not feel rushed or held up. Tee off was 1:30 and in less than 4 hours we were done. Some water hazards but I don't recall any bunkers.

The only problem was the lack of hole layout map. The first green is visible so we never thought of looking for a map until we reached the fourth hole and did not know where the green was located There is none on the scorecard or at the tee markers. We just played it by ear and guessed where the hole was until after the ninth when the starter handed us a map. I liked this course and will go back.

Pros:

- staff is friendly

- the greens were in ok condition

- clubhouse is nice

Cons:

- absolutely the worst course layout I've ever played anywhere in the world

- half the holes have some sort of obstruction that punished perfect shots in the middle of the fairway

- half the holes have tee boxes that required you to go around a tree to hit the fairway.

- perfect example is hole 17 which literally has a large tree directly between the tee box and green. Some of the higher handicappers on our foursome who had low ball flights could not hit it over the tree.

- it's almost like someone who had no idea how to play golf designed the course and decided to put trees blocking the tee box and greens to make up for the lack of length on the course

- tee boxes were in poor condition

- pace of play is poor since the course is tight and even average golfers will spend a lot of time in the woods or scooting under trees

- there is no driving range
