Great people most accommodating of any of the local courses

Course dries early It is by no means a prof. course but is fun and cagey at least for a 90 year old (thats me)

I have used golf now mostly in US since inception. Great people i would join but don't play more than once weekly.

I have played this course many times this past season as well as a few times in each of two or three previous years and am always amazed at the excellent condition of all areas of the course. The only minor criticism I have and it may be a misinterpretation on my part is that the speed of the greens does not seem to be constant ie: some greens considerably faster than others.

The course is of short yardage which makes it appealing to seniors like myself that have lost the ability to achieve the distance required to score well on a course of normal yardage. The shortness in yardage does not make the course much easier as many of the short holes require precise tee shots and good distance control to enable scoring well. It is also in my opinion interesting scenic and has many significant elevation changes which add to the challenge.

The staff are friendly and accommodating and they have all the amenities one could expect of a small country golf course.

I hope to enjoy many more enjoyable rounds at this course and oh yes the cost of playing is in my mind the best golf bargain in the area.

Thanks to all the staff!

Salt Creek is great for your short game; I call most of the holes "tricky and fun". Suits most levels of golfers and each should find holes his/her taste. You could walk but take the cart and relax.

We found this course great for the weekend golfer, we walked the course and were done in just over 2 1/2 hours, left the rest of the day to enjoy the family at the lake, not a real difficult course but definitely not easy, you have to know your clubs and hit fairly straight or you will get into trouble.

Course in great shape . This is a fun spot. Challenging and enjoyable for a quick 3 hour round. Staff are excellent. A more serious golfer may be looking for more but this is the spot if you just want to relax and coast along, have fun, and laugh.

I play this course frequently via Golf Now. The clubhouse staff are ALWAYS very friendly and polite, the course is ALWAYS in excellent condition, the pace of play is ALWAYS great with golf etiquette always demonstrated allowing faster groups to play through. This is not Black Diamond/Baxter Creek or Trillium Woods, but you WILL have an enjoyable and challenging game at a fraction of the cost and time. If you have not played this course, put it on your list......and enjoy a Church Key Irish Red Ale on the 19th hole.
