Rating 37.7

Cascades Golf Club is one of two nine-hole courses offered by Crystal Springs Resort, which offers four other courses. Cascades is the newest of all the courses. It was designed by Roger Rulewich, who designed two of the resort's most popular golf courses, Ballyowen and Wild Turkey. The other nine-hole course, Minerals, has been ranked as one of the top 12 short courses in the country, but Cascades still manages to hold its own. The course offers a fair amount of challenge but the main appeal is its playability. Cascades Golf Club is mostly open with a few strategically placed bunkers coming into play. There is also the occasional water hazard. The golf course is gentle enough for beginners but provides a quick but fun round for more advanced golfers.

Cart path only again

Booked this round 3 days in advance, No word that it was cart path only for the last few days Including today. Pace of play was over 5 hours for a course that normally takes 3.75 hours.. Instead of roping off the wet areas they pull the cart path only rule. Additionally they let golf pro teachers with students in front of us at the turn,
Also, the usual starter, all he talks about is how he reprimands careless golfers for driving on the course, I must have heard the "I caught a guy doing donuts on the fairway a took his keys away (apparently leaving the golfer stranded) story at least 20 times. One day it was cart path only again and he actually acused us of driving on the course because we played the round too fast. Taking a break form this place for the remainder of the year.

Solid Nine Holes

The first hole is probably the best/most strategic Rulewich designed hole I've ever played. Just an outstanding hole. Great variety throughout the course. Has a par 5 that can be reached in 2 and one that's brutish long. Short and long par 3s. Good variety in the 4s. The second hole seems a bit too narrow for the shot required off the tee and the length of the hole. Course has a very "big" feel, especially on the first 5 holes where it is pretty much wide open. Certainly top quality and not one to be missed.

Surprisingly Challenging

No mercy if you leave the fairway. Greens in good shape for this time of year. Great value at 35, but normal rate is 50. Not worth that.

Cascades play

The greens on all the holes were impossible to navigate due to all the sand used to dry them. Otherwise, it was OK.

cascades golf

I love this course, 9 holes that play really well, BUT when you get stuck behind a group of 6 plus an instructor playing "foot golf" it is both frustrating and unfair. If I pay for golf I do not want to deal with soccer players.

Hidden gem among great courses!

Had a 2:30 tee time on a Saturday afternoon. Felt like we were the only ones on the course. I think at one other time we saw another group, then they disappeared. Chance of rain may have scared people away. Had about average expectations about this course compared to the other courses up there. Expectations were blown away! The course was beautiful. Every hole played differently, Couple tight holes and if your not in the fairway, the thick fescue will eat your ball up. Greens were in pretty good shape. Not the most difficult greens but the course itself was pleasantly challenging. Got the front 9 in, grabbed a beer at the bar inside the lodge at the turn, waited out a little rain and headed right back to the first tee with no problem. Definitely one of the best bang for your buck courses as long as you are ok playing 9 holes twice. I would say that is the only downfall, if I had to pick one.

Definitely worth a look.

I've played all of the other tracks at the resort so I wanted to try Cascades. I'm glad I did. I thought it very much led Wild Turkey but with a bit more character at half the price. From the tips, it was no joke either. Yes, the foot golfers can be a mild distraction for those of you in search of a classic country club feel but it was all just in good fun and worth it for the opportunity to tackle a quality track with multiple challenges.

Early season - high winds

Course was still in winter mode. No grass growing. Was a warm day and seemed to be overbooked. Pace was very slow as was probably first round for many and winds were gusting for a good part of it. Will be more playable when grass is growing and better lies are found. On short par 3 4th hole we all took 2 or 3 more clubs than usual. Still none of us put it on the green. Brutal winds on that spot in particular.
