WARNING.

If you’re looking to spend 5 hours of your day, be my guest. The course isn’t bad, vary narrow, not in the greatest shape. If you enjoy waiting 10+ mins at each tee box enjoy!

Glad I played with someone familiar with the course

It was an hour trip for me from Westchester but I figured I would try a new course. When I got there I checked in and since I was a single was told I could go out with any twosome that was teeing off. I teed off with 2 others, one first timer and a local who knew the course.. I found the layout challenging but w/o GPS, had it not been for our local, we’d have been lost. Traps were in great shape but on the back 9, some of the tee boxes and greens were rough and recently aerated. Finished in 3:30..I’ll try it again but only thru Golf Now!

Well done

The course is in fantastic condition especially considering the roller coaster weather this summer. Greens are beautiful and fairways have filled in very well.

Friendly staff, great course

Hurricane caused a power outage but the staff handled it well. Outdoor bbq, easy check in, short wait at first tee. Great round of golf, good pace of play.

Avoid

Cashier or pro, whatever he is, is not a nice person. No ranger so first tee was chaotic. some random group just jumped in front of us and they were dreadfully slow. Pace of play was horrendous all around. For the money, go somewhere else. This place is not worth it.

As for the clientele, so many wannabe golfers play here.

I‘Be played my last round here.

Nice course but a bit pricey.

Nice course but seems like it’s a bit too expensive. 55 for cart and 18 seems a bit high for a mid to lower tier course. Driving range is 15 for a large practice bucket and mats are pretty lumpy. Still a decent course just a bit pricey.

Lovely Track

Great day at Whitney Farms. I’ll definitely be back. It’s much easier to get a tee time here compared some courses just a little bit west and the course is just as lovely.

I saw some negative reviews recently but playing this course today was a total joy. I read some complaints about the greens but they are totally fine. YES there are some challenging undulations but THATS golf. The greens were a TAD on the slower size so that made the undulations break even more but greens were in great shape. Number 8 tee box in under repair so instead of a par 5 it is a short par 4.

Good variety of hole lengths. You may use a wedge and a wood (and irons) on the par 3s. There’s plenty of short par 4s to give you scoring chances but the par 5s are long, in particular, number 6 which is all uphill after the tee shot.

Range and practice green are right next to the first tee which is great. People are friendly, it’s not too expensive and a great golf course.

Course in very good shape

I’ve played this course for three years.
It’s in the best shape I’ve seen
Pace is a bit slow, but nothing to fret about. Greens are challenging and in good condition.
