Worse Experience Ever

Overall I just had a really bad experience at Sleeping Giant GC. This is a great course to go play with your buddies and have a fun, non serious round, but the staff does not allow for this. The greens are awful, so slow. Basically the same speed putting out of the fairway. 28 dollars on a rainy weekday is extremely over priced for this golf course. Only people who go to play this course seriously are just bad at golf because it is the shortest course I have ever played. Two holes are 200 yard PAR FOURS. The one par 5 is basically a good drive and a 8 iron into the green. On the 9th hole the staff came out and rushed us off the course because they wanted to go home (use bad language with us). Management and course are just terrible. Never going back.

A Nice Short Course for Locals

Despite the heavy stuff that started coming down while we were on the 7th hole, I really enjoyed my first round here. It's short and easily walkable, with a great backdrop of the mountain.

The first and third are par 3's and a few more holes later on are marked as par 4's, but could easily be reached in one shot. You still can break out the driver on a few holes, but many can reach the green in two without it. Mostly I was impressed with the quality of the course. It seemed like it was pretty well maintained in most parts.

Had it been a nicer day, I'd imagine that the course could get backed up a bit with the lack of length. Still, $20 for nine holes on a Saturday is a great deal anywhere.

Good weather

short but not simple

I live near the course and gotta say it's a far cry from the old pitch and putt, fairways drier than a desert of a dozen years ago. While not long, it does give you a chance to use quite a few clubs. Odd layout - a par three to start- and two holes fairly identical back-to-back (7 and 8#- the two newer holes 4 and 5 are longer but unimaginative. The good news is that there is a large driving range- quick access for food and drink #Aunt Chiladas) and the price is fair. The course presently is plush- and the greens smooth and well mainured. Maybe best of all is the walker freindly aspect -very level and not at all rugged.
