I love playing Valley Hi. New carts last year, along with new management at the grill. The course is well maintained and has a different feel front 9 from back 9. Staff is very friendly.

Came early and the guy behind the counter told me to come back 10 minutes to my tee time. Every hole we had to wait. Starter needs training and so does the Marshall.

This is an ok course for a day of golf. But it does not offer a thing special and for the money I have played much better. It was in nice condition but if you are looking for CO. beauty this is really not the course. Would not want to play again unless it was really a Lot less than other courses. All the buildings were run down and just had a run down feel.

Course was in good condition as far as fairways and greens, however potholes and totally rough cart path conditions. All shrubbery and etc. was totally overgrown and unkempt. Guess overall it was okay but not properly managed!!

First time to hit the links. Just played 9 holes. Driving range was not the best I have ever seen. Though the first 9 that I did play on this course were well maintained. Great view of the mountains. Thought the course, overall, was well maintained. Very friendly locals and staff. Snack bar not quite up to "par". Good selection of spirits and beers. Grill should be a tad bigger. Very nice lady there. Facilities were very nice.

Best course conditions I have seen in a long time. I live in south Texas. Our fairways and greens are not as plush as this course. Greens putted true and I never got a bad lie in any fairway. A really fun course to play. Greens were still challenging. The rough around the greens is sticky and did cause a few of my shots around the green to come up short. If I lived in the area this would be where I would play the most. Paid full price the first round and got a hot deal for the second round.

Good course to play at, pace of play is nowhere near as bad as patty jewitt. Course is pretty fun, not in the best area of town but you're on the course so it's okay. Golf carts seem to stall regularly. Overall I'm just out to play golf and have a good time, and I'll continue to come back.

Course is maybe a $20 course with cart. Unkept, goose droppings everywhere... Outdated golf carts, search for one without a broken windshield, step on the pedal hoping thing will go. One good thing though, greens in pretty good shape.

The course was in great shape, lush green fairways with an impressive cut. The greens, which had not been winterized, were slightly firm and fast, which is ideal. This late in October with snow on the peak...Amazing!!!

The course was really great and the views were excellent. There were some areas where the grass was not quite great the ground looked under repair and this was in the fairway but this is just some holes. Others look like what you would expect at a great course. It's difficult to find good course conditions in Colorado Springs and surrounding areas for some reason but this was one of the better.

Course is normally in good condition. It was always managed well in the past due to the Pro, Mike Northern. He is no longer there. The pace of play can be extremely slow due to the fact the new management has decided to let people play " Foot Golf" ....a horrendously bad idea! This is kicking a soccer ball around the course. They will close off the front nine for this from time to time and they will stack up the back nine if you made the mistake of going out there during a "Foot Golf" session. They will not Marshall slow play so you could be in for a long day. 2 1/2 to 3 hours for 9 holes. I experienced this on a week day during the middle of the day. I have been playing this course for 30 years and this the first time I would recommend going elsewhere.

Valley Hi has been a municipal course for years. the course design has always been adequate but the conditions were always a little to be desired. Since Patty Jewett took over the course management I have to say, it is now on par with the other courses in the area. We have been blessed with ample rain this summer so the greens and fairways were in excellent shape. Keep up the good work.
