Reliable, player friendly, fun course overall!

This is an awesome course with legitimate green speeds, so putting feels real. The holes have a great layout with some nice topography in play for the par 3’s. Definitely worth the price.

Great Course For The Price

Was able to play this course on an unseasonably warm day in November. The condition was very nice with the exception of several bunkers which were packed and wet. The course was very busy because of the nice weather but still were able to complete our round in under 4 hours.

Always a decent track

The course was in pretty good shape for mid October - tee boxes and fairways were good, but the greens were just a bit slow, especially slower than the practice green

Delcastle is a solid course

Course is in ok shape and always fun to play. Can be slow but that is purely due to the high handicappers. I generally play 4.5-5 hour rounds on the weekend. Great value and getting better each year.

The Course starts long

The first 5 holes are very long. Greens were true and rolled perfect.

Good value

The course has seen better days. The rain has been overwhelming. I am guessing that seeding has been trying with al the rain. It has created bare spots in the fairways and tee boxes. Today a guy collecting trash cans but no one to rake the sand traps.
