Nice course to practice short game. But the greens could be a little better. You get what you pay for. Now the staff was great, and also good food!

Birch Hills

Course was in fine shape. Lots of unrepaired ball marks on the greens, but that's not the course's fault. Fairways were in good shape with nice lies. Teeboxes were a little torn up, but manageable. Driving range and putting green were open. Cart girl came around several times. Overall, a fun experience on an executive course.

Fun Course little expensive

Enjoyed the course Staff very friendly. Only slight issue is the cost for par 3 course with a few par 4. Also the greens were a little bit of a mess. Lots of ball marks that now one seems to repair

Great course for beginners to intermediate

The greens look like they got blasted with an AK47, mainly the par 3’s.... but other than that, it wasn’t bad.

FUN COURSE

Fun as usual. Staff very friendly. Course got backed up towards the end, so it took about hour and fifteen to finish the last 4 holes. Still a fun place to play.

Great Day

The course is in pretty good condition, the greens are in great shape and the fairways were pretty good. They were packing the players on, we were waiting at least one group sometimes two groups per hole.

Only got 9 holes through 2.5 hours

This is a short course, thought I could get in a quick 18 in 2.5 hours but only got through 9. Pretty much says it all. Conditions are poor right now with the greens in probably the worst shape of any course I've ever played.outside of aeration periods.

Hi Milton, thank you for coming out to play Birch Hills. As with all golf courses right now, we are busier than ever and we have seen some more challenges in the pace of play. We are always doing our best to make sure our rounds of golf are quick and most importantly enjoyable. We will continue to work on this and the condition of the course for your next visit.

Decent Round

You can play this course in 4 hours or maybe less on the weekend. It just depends what time you tee off. We had a 10:02, but actually got off a little early. They are trying to help pace of play by starting everyone on hole #6, the first par 4 on the front nine. Usually this is one of the holes that gets backed up on. We had a birthday group of a bunch of 8 year old kids. Yikes! Thankfully they only played nine. We finished our round under 4 hours. Very happy about that!

good beginner course

lots of beginners, casual players, or people just out for fun, so unless you go early expect to pace to be slow. the staff is nice and the price is very affordable. the fairways are pretty good, the greens are riddled with ball marks from players not fixing ball marks (refer back to first sentence)
