We were fortunate that we were able to get out a little earlier than our tee time. Nobody in front of us so we were able to play at a nice pace without any delays.
Palmer Course 7/14/20
Was a wonderful day on the Palmer Course at Oglebay. Have played this course a number of times and love it every time. It is a great course with a really cool layout. It is challenging but playable. The conditions, even with how dry it has been, were great. Some of the greens were hard but that was to be expected with the weather we have had. We love this course and would HIGHLY recommend it to everyone.
Great course for a HOT DEAL
Course was in great shape for 90+F degree day ( we teed off at 140 pm). Staff was friendly, but Covid-19 rules played in their ease in helping customers. Greens were superb, with a variety of contours, shapes, and sizes. As a higher end public course, this is definitely worth the trip. Our thanks to all employees there, please continue to be safe in these trying times.
Well maintained course
First off the Staff was very friendly and helpful. The course was in very good condition despite the lack of rain recently. Very nice course layout. Would recommend.
Stunning views and a very interesting course layout that also had safety in mind. I definitely had to use every club in my bag for this one.
Course is literally on a mountain. Lots of shots with ball above and below feet. Greens were fast but very narrow. (Hard to hold) some what of target golf. Played high school state golf tournament there so nice to relive memories but deff not worth the rate they charge for summer time play. $45 max!!
Beautiful Day on a golf course
The course follows Coronavirus guidelines. Nice course. Finished my game in 3 hours 40 minutes.
Well worth the drive
First time playing here. It was great! Course is in amazing shape considering how dry and hot it's been. Great layout Challenging but fair. Fairways were immaculate. Greens were on the slwer side, but rolled true. Played from the Whites, but will probably move back a tee next time.
Challenging course but a lot of fun. Hope to play it again this year
In spite of a lot of rain in the last two days, the course was in a very good condition - fairways, greens and tee boxes. Interesting layout. Friendly staff.
Amazing for this time of year
Amazing. Really. February and it wasn't really soggy at all. Saw 3 carts the whole time. Loved it. Will be back!!!
Classic Palmer Design
The course design is fun and well thought out. Beautiful scenic course with only a few blind shots. fairways and greens for the most part were in really good condition. Only a few spots of ground under repair. When our group played the bunkers had not been maintained in a while. Overall nice course with tremendous value in a beautiful setting.
Mountain like course...conditions meh
Based on the cost of this course and how it’s written up on the website, I had an extremely high expectation set for this place. I’ve played golf for years in the mountains so I knew what I was getting myself into in terms of difficulty, but I was honestly disappointed. I would still recommend this course to a friend, but only if you play during twilight and have realistic expectations set.
The conditions were average to decent. But not like you would expect for a course that charges over $70 a round at prime time. The course is difficult, which was to be expected. Pace of play was amazing as we barely saw any other golfers out there. This staff member inside the pro shop was extremely nice as well. It was surprisingly dead for a Sunday afternoon at a resort..
If you’ve not played mountain lake golf before and you are in the area, hit this place up after 3p, but expect conditions much closer to a good public course at your home and not a resort course charging twice as much.

We do enjoy hearing the positive comments regarding POP and our staff. Thanks again for playing a round with us - we hope to see you back again soon.
The golf shop is the first thing you see before you play anywhere, it should not be a hassle or should you be treated like an alien .The round was ruined before even teeing off ...ie rude behavior from staff and no sign of golf now reservation even though clearly on my phone I had two confirmed times Saturday and Sunday.Even worse the second day hassled by lady in shop said no golf now t time after even confirming the day before that I would be playing the following day egod .....tried to get a cart and attendant was no where to be found don’t blame him I would run and hit balls too ...fits in well with rest of staff.play elsewhere
Thanks for your review. We are sorry you had poor experience with us and would like to continue this conversation with you. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Very nice course.
Great layout and great staff. You can tell they keep the course in great shape. I played right after a heavy rain so the bunkers were hard but that was to be expected. You can tell though even from the rain that they rake the bunkers every day.
