Fall golf was not a deal
I have played here a half dozen times. The last two have not been very good experiences. Had a 10:50am tee time on Sunday, and the first tee was backed up with two groups in front of us. The course was using temporary tee boxes, where on some holes it so slick and uneven, the footing was difficult. But the worst part was all the leaves on the course, not only in the fairways and bunkers, but On The Green. These were not scattered leaves, there were piles of oak leaves. When I called the clubhouse, the response was there was a nor’easter the day before and they would not be blowing leaves off the course on a Sunday morning. Not a deal! Will spend my golf money elsewhere where they pay a little more attention to the course.
Hello, Thank you for reviewing the course. Let us first start by apologizing for the poor experience you had during your visit. Your feedback about the course is important to us. We are working to get everything up to par. Thank you for your business, we hope to see you again soon.
Fun, challenging course. Just need to be aware that they are working on the tee boxes so tee boxes were on the fairway. Also had recently aerated some of greens. Golf now price including convenience fee was slightly higher than the senior rate so need to check that out next time before using GolfNow.
First time playing, got a good deal. Course wasn't bad, but tee boxes and greens were a little rough and pace of play was very slow (~5 hours).
Pace of play was horrible
So I started at 12:45, there was a foursome of older gentleman playing. We finished at 5:45. Worst pace of play ever and it was a weekday. The ranger did nothing to speed them up or let us pass. Just a very frustrating day. Could not get any rhythm going. These guys were dicking around, and searching for balls constantly. I won’t be going back unless they make it a point of pace of play.
Done for the year
I normally love this course. Played it a few times this year. It was in great shape every time except this time. Tee boxes were full of crab grass or no grass at all. Greens were all sandy. I’ll come back next season.
Hello blam558, thank you for taking the time to review us, Granite Fields Golf Club, and for the 3 stars. We appreciate your dedication to playing our course over the years but are very sorry to hear your recent experience with us may have been poor due to the course conditions. We greatly appreciate you taking the time to provide us with your feedback regarding the tee boxes and greens and will use it to make the necessary improvements. Thank you for choosing our course, and we hope to see you again soon.
well worth it
We got warning they aerated the greens, which definitely stole some birdie putts, but it's ok. This course is challenging but fun. There's no cookie cutter holes, each is different and has it's own challenges. Very unique
I've played here about a dozen times, I love playing there and the deals you just cant beat.The ONLY problem here is the tee boxes. No matter what time of season I play, they are awful. That being said, i'd still keep playing there
There were little grass at tee box. Otherwise very good to us.
Great scenic course
Great scenic course with some very cool blind uphill and downhill shots. Super staff!
Good place to work on your game.
Local, nice people. Course is generally in great shape.
It’s an okay course
Nothing special, it’s an okay course. Nice people, no issues using the GolfNow hot deal, which made it a great deal. If I lived near there I’d play it again.
They could use a couple more signs telling you where to go, some long twisty routes from green to the next tee. But not a big deal.
Conditions are okay. I think a big issue is they they have so many trees, they block the sun from getting to the grass. But for the money the conditions are just fine.
HUGE issue with idiots who don’t repair their ball marks. That was the single biggest problem on the greens. I fixed 4-5 craters every green and didn’t make a dent.
Layout is okay. A lot of quirky layups off the tee and a few forced carries but not too bad. One exception is the 9th - the tee shot is completely unplayable from the blues if you play a left to right ball flight. Even if you hit it straight you have a super tight window to keep it in play due to the trees on the left. It’s just a really dumb design. Especially when left to right is such a common ball flight.
Playing golf w/ a buddy. Met up with another GolfNow Guy (good Dude). Beat the rain. Good times!
Still NIce and Green
The irrigation system must be a really good one because this course is still nice and green. I play a different course every week and some of them a badly burned out because of lack of rain. The greens are always great here and the fairways were very good. So, if you are looking for a good place to play, give Granite Fields a shot. You won't be disappointed.
Great layout which allows all the clubs in your bag to be utilized and different shot shapes, if you can do so. The greens were especially quick and rolling very nice today. For the price, this place cannot be beat. AND they provide, for FREE, cold bottled water at the 1st and 11th holes. I don't know any other course that offers this type of service.
Great condition except tee boxes
This course was in excellent condition and fun to play with one notable exception: the white tee boxes were in very poor condition. I found this very odd considerig how well the rest of the course was maintained. They didn't seem to get the idea of moving the tee markers around and repairing the used areas.
Great value, especially $27.00 greens fee using GolfNow.
Pro Shop Staff
Will never play there again. Worst pro shop staff ever. I have never written a review until now. My wife and I booked an 8:10 tee time through GolfNow. We show up at 7:50 and check in. The attendant in the pro shop tells us we are teeing off at 8:20. He said I was wrong even though I showed my app reservations. He said we can’t load our cart until 8:10. This is not a hopping course. We waited until 8:04 and went back in to get our “cart tags” and he refused to give them to me. He said “even someone like you should understand these simple rules” basically calling me stupid. We waited and watched other people load their carts with tee times after ours. Our only conclusion is they don’t like “Hot Deal” players or the ownership does not realize what face is in the pro shop. We will NEVER play there again. Our 30 year old kids have felt the same. Also no cart person and bottled water at 1 and 10. Avoid, they don’t like us “GolfNowers”
Highly recommend this course to everyone. Owner/ course super take pride in this course and it’s appearance. Tee boxes, fairways and greens were in great shape. Staff kept pace of play without being pushy, owner said hello while we were on the green.
Water bottle provided at start of course and every few holes.
A Go To Place
Second time through this very nice course in Kingston, NH. You need to learn this course. Layup shots, forced carries off the tee and approach shots, coupled with knowing which side of the fairway to be on makes for a very interesting day. The course is not overly long and not overly punishing for recreational players like me. The greens were very nice and cut to a playable speed. The rock walled ponds make a beautiful setting on several of the holes. I highly recommend this course to anyone, make it a go to place. I will.
