Don’t waste your $$

Not as advertised and a person I played with described it as such, “I would call it a cow pasture but the cows might get upset” and I concur!!

Fun, Short Golf Course

I enjoy playing at this course. It is a fairly short golf course, but it does provide a good challenge for beginners and intermediate level players. I will be playing this course fairly often moving forward.

Nice municipal course. Well maintained and the use of social distancing was good. Club house was not what I expected. Looked like a thrift shop and not very professional.

Great Value

Fairways are very open. Greens start out a little rough but they get much better. They really need to repave the cart paths.

Not a good time to play this course

Greens are full of and surrounded by Crabgrass. Damage on greens to the point you could not even put. Had to play 15 of 18 holes just taking a 2 put and moving on. Grass around some greens not mowed and 6 inches high. New Carts are nice with digital navigation and course layout, however, very annoying to have the cart be disabled about 25 times during the round saying you can or cannot go in a specific area even between green and tee box. One time I was on the Gravel path and it made me not go that way and go around to the otherside of the Tee box to park? Ended up being a comedy club and good Driver and mid-iron practice round for the cheap price. Hope things are going in the right direction, could be a very nice course if greens were playable.

What a great course

I play pretty much every day and after a year and a half I still find this course challenging and interesting. I shoot in the 70s and low 80s from the men's tees even though I am 74 and could play from the senior tees and play once a week from the blue tees. I would recommend this course to anyone. It is beautiful and lots of birds and wildlife are found.

Greens need work

The greens need serious work. Still recovering from aeration I guess. Bunkers are solid sand/dirt

WONT PLAY HERE AGAIN

I'm new to the area and have played almost all the courses in the area. I'm all about supporting local places. Needless to say, I was very disappointed. For $44.00 per person, definitely not worth it. Greens were the worst I've ever played on. IN MY LIFE. Also this was the only course I've ever played when you get to the break, 9 holes that you don't get, go past, clubhouse. so be aware. Have what you need and want
PRO'S.....beautiful scenery

Nice break from the beach

Staff was friendly, and the course was easy to navigate. Very forgiving fairways. Love the old Oak trees throughout.

Great Course!

Greens are in good shape. The greens run slow so you really have to hit the putter. The fairways are getting better too with all this rain. Overall this course is well worth the price. Driving range is good too.

Exceptional Muni

Bacon Park is probably the best shape it’s been in since I’ve played it, with my first experience occurring 25 years ago. The course has seen some layout changes but the most recent formats have had a few years of development and the fairways and greens were in good shape. Still lacking a cart path and halfway house, the Donald Ross course Design is challenging enough for experienced golfers But forgiving enough for beginners and high handicappers.
