Horrible experience. Quit after 7 holes.
This course is cart path only (not 90*) and they do not tell you that until after you have paid. The golf cart was dirty and in deplorable condition. The paths are large gravel stones and filled with large pot holes. We followed two young men who seemed high and hit numerous balls at every hole. We saw no rangers monitoring play. After 7 holes we had it and left.
Course is affordable for what it is and condition it is in . Would go after work once or twice a week for a few months now with multiple people from work. We are not the best and still have to perfect out short game. However on 2 separate occasions the older woman who seems like an owner gives us an attitude. we are always respectful and try to be curious to everyone else. on hole #7 which i find most challenging because it is uphill, the woman was mowing grass and never really gave us a chance to concentrate. so my first ball hooked into the woods and i decided to take a stoke and play one more off the tee since there was no one behind us. As i approach the ball she starts to yell "come on, hurry it up, swing already". so since i was being rushed and she got into my head, it wasn't the nicest shot. so she throws her hands up starts to cut again and told me" thats it your done done". I personally felt like she should not have rushed me and as a paying customer if i want to play another ball off the tee i should be able to do so without feeling like I suck and get in my head. needles to say the rest of my golf game was off and rushed. I will NO longer give this place my business and would gladly pay more money somewhere with more friendly costumer service skills.
Good for short game work
Miner is a nice little course, it could use some upkeep, but considering the hot dry summer and the very reasonable green fees you can't be expecting to play Pinehurst.
Staff is very friendly, the pace of play is always great as well. The course is small and pretty tight, lots of elevation changes and slopes which will force you to use several different shots per round.
The driving range is a driving range, you're hitting across a pretty good grade so it's hard to really gauge how you're flying the ball, I wouldn't recommend it for legitimate practice but it does the job for a quick warm up bucket.
I would give the course 4 stars, but the tee boxes are fair at best and in some cases basically unplayable, too hard to set a tee in, some are in grave need of regrading, and so sparsely covered in grass that you're uncomfortable hitting a club off the deck.
All in all a good spot to work on the 100 yard game, and it's easy enough to get in a quick 9 before work or as a nightcap after an 18 somewhere else.
Short but sweet
course was great to get your Iron work in, only 2 holes to use your driver the rest are short par 3 holes the course was in immaculate shape and the carts are ONLY allowed to be drive on cart path ( persevering the course )
Great 9-Hole, Par 3 Course!
Miner Hills Golf Course is my go-to course when looking for an affordable, enjoyable, and close-to-home round of golf. The greens are always in great condition, but off-fairway can get a little hairy. Overall, I highly recommend this course to anyone looking to play an enjoyable round, boost their confidence, and lower their scores!
It was fun!
I brought my son(11) and it was fun. Not a lot of people so we didn't feel rushed. The down side was that there was dog poo ALL over the course.
They put tee times on golfnow for the middle of a scramble tournament they were holding. It's essentially a par 3 course, so you can imagine how that went. They charged $25 for 18 w a cart- comparable to a lot of par 72 18 hole courses in CT. We were put out on hole 8 to start, after we waited for a group to play through, then were backed up once we got to 1. Great company saved the day, but I won't be returning. Thank you mr minor. Thank you mr Hood.
Nice little executive course in Middletown CT. Greens though slow were in excellent shape. The fairways on the three par 4's were also good. Everywhere else was very dry and hard including the tee boxes. The price of $14.00(including the fee) through a Golf Now Hot Deal was a good buy. I would not pay more than $20.00 for 18 holes. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Went around the 9 hole course twice as a twosome in 2 hrs.
Greens were very receptive for the regions lack of water. Slow greens made for tough putts on the ungulated slope. Great time
Can't beat $25 for 18
Even if it is a smaller course, its great for iron practice and you can drive at least 3 of the holes. No water coolers on the course which is odd, how much does that cost the facility as a courtesy? Greens are in good shape, a bit slow, but good condition. The tee boxes could use some work, hard to get a tee into some of them. Looks like they are continuing to upgrade the property. Geared more towards "Daddy and daughter" for a round of 9 holes. Play it twice in 2.5 hours. Its good for a round a year for the more intermediate golfer.
