Nice track and friendly staff

Really my one and only complaints was the pace of play, not that it was exceedingly long but we were stuck behind a foursome that had two players that probably never golfed before and held up the course. The ranger was out but it didn’t seem to enforce play any faster.

Very clean course

Problem is, the timing. You have ppl on your take and can barely enjoy yourself. I’d return if I had time to actually golf. Used to golf here as a kid, you’d think things would update...nope. Grounds ppl keep it clean, ranger was super cool, if I didn’t have ppl waiting on me on every hole and ppl ahead were slow, I’d be a nice place. Seems like they cram ppl on the course with 10 seconds to tee off and if you golf slightly off course you’re done.

A little slow for a Monday morning

Nice course. Played here a few times in the past, as recent as 3 days ago. Played pretty slow this morning. Front nine went OK. Started waiting on hole # 7. Back nine was a lot slower than usual. Looked to be a foursome two groups ahead of us. They seemed to get slower as the round went on and the temp rose. I know Hilldale has had the rap of slow play in the past by a certain type of golfer and that appeared to be the case today. Slower than expected for 9:00 on a Monday morning. Also was surprised that they let non playing young children ride along with their Mothers.

Tough course

Very challenging course with lots of hazards that come into play. Many play longer and narrower than they look. Greens slope like crazy. Not a course for beginners or those who get rattled easily

Course was fine, but a severe thunderstorm closed the course after 9 holes. We are entitled to a raincheck but the course does not provide 1 with Hot Deals I WILL NOT USE GOLF NOW unless weather conditions are perfect.

Course was in bad condition, extremely wet with casual water all over including fairways and bunkers. Basically unplayable unless you could reach in the green on the fly in one on par fours. Should have been warned when checking in and given an additional discount to play or allowed to cancel.

Play there 6 or 7 times a year. This course is challenging and in good shape. Not a good day for golf because it was cold but I got in 18 holes and it was well worth it.

Always a good value and course conditions

Pace of play was great - 3 some played in 3 hours 15 minutes

While the greens were a little slow they rolled true
Tee boxes were in good condition
Fairways I. Good condition
Bunkers had a little too much sand
It is April 8 and i would say for the time of year and with the winter we had the overall condition would be 9 of 10

Always a good value
