It was our first game down here and our first game at Shadow Mountain. The course is not long, and easy to get around. It was in pretty good condition. We enjoyed interacting with others on the course. In general we had a good time and will likely return. It was an excellent quality/ price ratio.

This day of play was one of many played at this course.

Great day, great people to play with and a good tight challenging course. Leave the big clubs in your bag or you will hear the sound of your ball hitting a roof.

Bring your friends they will enjoy the course and the staff.

Stop and read the history of the place you will be enlightened.

This is one of the oldest if not the oldest course in the Valley. It is a fun flat shortish course in pretty good shape. It’s fun and feels like you’re back in the 50’s.

We arrived early for our 1 pm tee tI'm and no one on the tee box for several minutes. Then a single player went out. Jennifer, who remembered my name from several days back asked if we were wanting out early. We said Yes! We had no one in front of us and no one behind us the entire 18 holes. We were finished in 3 hrs 15 minutes and truly enjoyed it! We had a couple times recently where it was slow playing in a foursome behind foursomes. Steady pace but slow. Today was a real treat so thanks Jennifer! We know this can't always happen but when it's not busy, we appreciate the opportunity to go early.

My only comment about the course is I'd like to see a more forward tee box on the par 3 7th (too long for many ladies at 161 yards) and on the 11th hole. The back nine is much tougher than the front because of the length.

Course is better than average for its condition. Play was held up by one foursome who were obviously high handicappers. They were holding up the entire back nine and others behind them were all anxious to finish in a timely manner on Super Bowl Sunday. No marshall anywhere near the course, let alone on the course. I have never seen a marshall on this course in 5 years of playing there.

Very nice/helpful staff, relatively short, reasonably conditioned course, but very tight with homes in places.Still hit 11 of 14 fairways with no OB's. Had hoped to have a relaxing, appropriately paced, outing with my wife, but felt rushed by several other couples with considerably lower skill levels that seemed much more interested in seeing how fast they could finish than playing well. We finished the 18 in about 2, 3/4 hours but couldn't say we found the experience enjoyable. I don't like slow play, but I do like to have a little time to line up my putts, look around a bit, and feel relaxed. We'll handle such situations differently in the future.

Hello, we are sorry to hear about your negative experience at the course. Not that you and your wife were playing slow but if you ever feel rushed by the group behind you and there is no one in front of you it may be better to just let them play through. In the event, there is no room for them to go in front of you and they are beginning to hit into you, please do not hesitate to give the shop a call.
