When you first look at the scorecard at Candlewood it seems pretty short and probably not too much of a challenge and you’d be right, it isn’t a long course but to call Candlewood not much of a challenge is far from accurate. Your tee shots need to be accurate, there are some tight fairways and the large pine trees and rough are waiting for you. Let’s be clear the green complexes at this place are legit, they defend this course extremely well. The greens are well designed, manicured and the two times I’ve visited they’ve been fast (rolling at maybe a 10 or 11) You need to think carefully about where you leave your approach shot to not end up 3 putting or worse! The shop staff are always really friendly and the practice facilities are top notch, ignore the practice putting green at your peril! I highly recommend Candlewood and will look forward to my next visit. Simon (hcap 3)

It was a nice surprise to find a hide away course in the city. We played like a private club member with no one in front or back. Nicely maintained, quick green, I love it!

I was able to book an afternoon tee time on GolfNow and experience the Country Club Life. I walked all 18 holes in 3 hours and 10 min. Played the first 14 holes with a member and he was awesome! The last 4 I played by myself. The course is short and tight. The greens were pure. I'll be trying to back on soon.

Besides the greens being punched a couple weeks back, the course was in very good condition. I highly recommend playing it if you get a chance.

I've been a member of Candlewood for just over a year now and can't say enough good things. As far as country clubs go, you'll be hard pressed to find better value anywhere. The course? Not the longest but a great mix of fun and challenging holes that are kept in great condition. The greens are solid and in great condition year round. The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Whether you looking to join or just to grab a Golfnow tee time, give Candlewood a try and I'm sure you'll be more than happy.

Have played Candlewood over 10 times and most of the time it’s been good, but this last time I ran into a 6 some on the 4th, so decided to skip some holes than ran into another 6 some, which is absolutely ridiculous! I thought about becoming a member, but after seeing 2 groups of 6 somes it’s not going to happen. Most of the time I play here the play is pretty slow. I really enjoy playing Candlewood. It’s a pretty tight course and hitting fairways and greens are a must! I like a course that has that challenge of having to be spot on to score well! I’ll definitely be back, hopefully no 6 somes out that day!

Thoroughly enjoyed my round at Candlewood. A buddy and I got to go out as a twosome at 11:30 a.m. and we had zero issues with pace of play; finishing in approx 3hrs & 45mins w/ zero rushing. Granted, the openness of the course was probably down to it being Super Bowl Sunday but we finished our round in time for kickoff so it was all good.

Overall, pretty interesting track with just enough elevation changes and slopes to keep it fun but not be absurd. Not anywhere near as narrow or tree-lined as some other reviewers have stated. The greens were in GREAT shape and had some tricky subtlety to them.

Bottom line, it’s priced very reasonably and will provide an entertaining round. Course itself isn’t spectacular or even particularly visually attractive. However, it’s far more interesting than nearby muni courses and kept in waaaaaay better condition.
