Love the course

Love t his course. Good value for the money but fairways were in rough shape. It rained yest and overnight and was drizzly when we started out at noon today. Several of the fairways were in really rough shape. Messed up by the carts on holes with no cart paths. Overall I love this course. It has many challenges; especially with so many greens surrounded by tough bunkers.

Tired Old Resort Course

On a Monday when our home course was closed for aeration we visited Horseshoe Resort. It was obvious that the resort is spending very little money on maintaining the golf course. Greens were slow and in terrible shape. Often fairways were spotty or non-existent. Not sure when is the last time they spent any money on fertilization or weed killing. Very disappointing to see how they have let this course deteriorate. Greens were rock hard and it was completely lucky to stay on the putting surface. Won't be back even at this reduced price.

Sub par!

I have always wanted to good at Horseshoe resort and was very disappointed greens were patchy not maintained. in the tee boxes grass was long and very very hard couldn’t put my tee in some spots. Fairways were all patchy and partially dead! And sometimes I would hit it to maybe 10 feet off the green and I should be in fringe and I was in dirt! Oh and hole one you had to hit it over some concrete thing where there were also like hydro wires just super weird

So wouldn’t recommend this course to anyone unless it’s like max $20 with a cart because then you know what your getting

But could easily be better with just some maintenance

Course is in horrible shape. Vast areas of fairways are dead its like playing on a mud cracked dry lakebed at times. The worst part in the morons from the city who have weekend places adjoining the course seem to think that they own the place a roam about wherever and whenever they please. One idiot walked his dog up the side of 5th teebox as I was teeing off and another time kids running around on the fairway playing fetch with their dog in front of us to name a few. We quit after 9 holes as we were tired of the attitude when we asked them to remove themselves from the hole when we where playing. Won't go back. No one seems to care about the place.

Poor condition

The course is in extremely poor condition, fairways and greens are heavily damaged.
The cost is far to much for the condition of course

Avoid!

I booked a Golfnow twilight round at the Valley Course with hopes that it would live up to the "unique 18 holes" that Skyline Resorts boasts for it to be; however, this course has deteriorated from good quality since I last played (spring 2018) to virtually unplayable for all types of golfers! In the three holes I played before realizing that it was nowhere near worth the price tag of $50, I experienced unkept tee boxes (all 3 holes), a entire fairway that should be marked as ground under repair (#2), and putting greens that were full of dead grass patches and dirt (all 3 greens). With that being said, the Director of Golf should highly consider closing the course for the remainder of the season and focus on getting it up to standards for the 2020 season. As for the 2019 season, do not waste your time or money here! The lack of maintenance shows and better value/quality of golfing experience exists elsewhere within the local area!

Different than its past

After finding the pro shop ( no signage) I was met by a very pleasant staff member. It was an easy check in and off to get a cart. Cart girl very nice who directed us to hole #1. What a joke. A par 3 hole that had chairlift wire obstruction in the air and magic carpet lift obstacles on the ground. The greens were in very poor condition throughout the front nine, with many fairways being less than desirable - ruts, very hard and lacking grass. The back nine is in much better condition but nothing like I remembered from years gone by. To pay full price would be outrageous and even the golfnow rate should be less for the condition of the course. Golfers you have been for warned.

OK course but nothing great. Shame on Horseshoe Resort for closing the Highlands course which was a great course. This is definitely the poor cousin

OK course but nothing great. Shame on Horseshoe Resort for closing the Highlands course which was a great course. This is definitely the poor cousin and at best a municipal course NOT a resort course.

Horseshoe Valley

Course is very scenic but looks neglected and under maintained.
Majority of tees, fairways and greens are in poor condition.
Only one other golfer was seen for the whole round.

We got lost between the 9th and 10th tees because of lack of direction/signage. Staff were not overly helpful in directing us.

Greens is rough shape

Most of the greens are in really bad shape. Lots of spots where grass isn’t growing. The sandpit was rock hard.
The course is surrounded by forest so if you veer off the fairway you probably aren’t finding your ball.

Walked

pretty mature tree layout

This is not a walker's course. There are long walks between many holes and particularly between the nines. The course is beautiful with trees everywhere (not on fairways). Unfortunately most of the greens are in poor shape.

Course not ready

I have played this course several times before and it was very good. I assume that since it has been a very wet Spring that this is the reason that it is in such POOR condition! I was very disappointed as was the rest of the foursome. I would have asked for a refund but I had paid directly to Golfnow.
Hopefully the course will improve with better weather. It was not worth the $50+ that we paid!
