Good Overall

The course is good !! the layout is gorgeous!! shame they don't have those extra shots for a par 70.
it was nice playing 18 on a 9 hole's course you know the shots you need to make on the back 9.
one suggestion is they should have different tee boxes to change the 18 holes experience.

Terrible course

Played this course a few years ago and decided to give it another try. Regret that decision. Course is in absolutely terrible condition. Final hole is literally a construction zone. In fact, several holes have construction zones in the middle of them.
Would not recommend this course to anyone ... not even beginners.

I'd rather not golf than golf here

unfortunately the quality was so bad it wasn't even worth golfing. everything was ripped up including the greens. Impossible to put. it was unfortunately just bad.

Horrible 9

Uplands used to be nice a while back however the’ve pretty much given up on maintaining the course and it’s an awful experience hole after hole.

Great day

Uplands was a great course, challenging. very scenic long distance to 3rd hole because of construction and construction affected play on 9th hole.
Pricing was actually cheaper if paid to uplands directly instead of through GolfNow. $25 for an adult and $21 for a youth. Watch pricing.

Pace is very slow

They need a marshal. Second time in a row that I’ve had slow pace here. Group in front spent to long looking for lost balls. Overall it is a challenging course. Just need to move stranglers along.

All around awful experience

Didn’t tee off until 15 minutes after scheduled time because no Marshall was directing starters.

The course was under construction so 3 of 9 holes (aka 6 of 18) were significantly altered and nearly unplayable due to unwarned construction.

It started to pour as we finished hole 9, and continued to pour for 15 minutes while we tried to negotiate with the staff to give us a rain check (it’s questionable if we would have even returned to use it).

Apart from a few interesting elevation changes on the course, this round was a complete disaster and I wouldn’t recommend this $55 course (without a cart) to a soul.

No T boxes to indicate blue / white / red ? Why not ?

Playing for first time hard to know where the next hole was.

Some construction going on [ #9] through the hole.

4 groups together on several holes !!!!

Unfortunately worse than ever

It pains me to write negatively about uplands. I’ve been playing it the last 2-3 years and this is the worst I’ve ever seen it. It could be great again but I feel as though that time has come and gone. 48$ for a nine that isn’t fully playable. No t-blocks on every single hole except hole 3? C’mon. Details matter. Disappointed at best.

Challenging and fun 9 hole layout

Played Uplands for the first time ever. Course was is good condition (construction notwithstanding). Greens and fairways were in great shape. Only drawback was pace of play... it shouldn’t take 3 hours to play this course.

Short course

This course is great! It has a series of difficult holes with prominent obstacles. Some drives require precision to get down the narrow fairways. It has plenty of steep hills as well so it can get tricky at times.
I wish the course was organized a little better as some tee offs are next to the previous hole.
