The course condition seems neglected, but there is lots of potential given the layout.

$30 for 9 holes is a little steep given the course condition.

Wow! Not sure who your talking about, but I found the GM Carrie to be very friendly and approachable. Both Geewan G1 and Lori the carts crew were helpful and friendly. I played 18 on May 2 in about 3 hours. Its very hilly but some very uniwue challenging holes. #6 par 4 driveable for eagle #7super tough but makable par 3. Conditions can be less than ideal after rains. Take a cart as it's tough to walk. Just drive slowly as the tree roots are pushing up on the cart paths....just drive slowly. Course is a great little gem in the middle of city.

Played 18 holes early in season w cart in about 3 hours. It very scenic as it's built within a ski hill with lots of woodlands. Best take a cart as it's REALLY Hilly. First hole needs solid drive followed by long high uphill shot. Challenging SHOTS with #3 a little wet due to early season. #7 a great driveable eagle par 4 when downwind, followed by #8 super challenging par 3 where you may want to use a driver, but it's makeable. Solid finishing hole #9 where a solid drive and 2nd shot will set you up for another eagle. Expect it to be hilly and some bumpy paths as many of the big tree roots are pushing up the paths. Just drive slowly. Carrie the GM and her staff were VERY friendly and helpful. Must be the new staff now under Golfnorth management. I would readily play this course again, scenic, Challenging, friendly and especially if short time.

Scenic course. Lots of hilly play so walking the course is not for the faint of heart. Cart path needs some repairs and regrading. If playing after it has rained be sure to not lose your shoes on hole 3's fairway, it needs to be fixed badly.

Club house needs work. But all-in-all if you can pay a reduced rate and want to try something quick in the area its worth playing it once.

Stanley Thompson designed 9 hole course. Very tight narrow fairways with punishing rough for off line shots. Shortage in length but more than makes up for it in accuracy required.

If you cannot hit it straight bring lots of balls.

Lots of balls lost.very narrow fairways on many holes especially from tee boxes. Drainage problem on 3rd hole. The greens are beautiful and we'll maintained. I have golfer there about 5 times and say I won't return. So many natural hazards. Even if your green fees are low you wish you paid more elsewhere.

The management there treat customers like nobody. They think they are the king. Many of my friends decided not going there to play. Even nobody to play on the course, they still ask you to wait half an hour for the next group to play together. There is an older lady,

She is so inflexible and rude, she does not like the customers at all and I do not know why she is working there. Even one plays there many times, they pretend do not know you at all. There is no customer care at all. If they want their business grow, they have to train their staff and be friendly and change the mentality toward the customer.

I just had the same experience with the same woman this weekend. Completely rude and thinks she is better than everyone. Uplands used to be a great course a few years ago but clearly they do not care about the upkeep or customer service. We played earlier this year and the conditions were terrible as the course was not maintained at all. It rained 2 days before we played earlier this summer, but immediately we realized the course conditions sucked. We got to the 3rd hole, it was completely flooded and muddy. You could not even walk through the fairway without stepping in puddles under the grass. All the cart paths are in such bad shape and falling apart that you can barely drive on them without hitting a pot-hole. Decided to give it another try this weekend and absolutely regretted it. This course is not worth a $44 at all (even a $9.00 hot deal is too good for it). Save your money and go somewhere else....anywhere else!
