Wonderful time playing 9 holes

Had a wonderful time playing Hilldale, this was my first time playing here. Course had a great layout. Nice easy Par 3, not a lot of areas to get into trouble.

Good time

.Me and my son went out to play arf nine holes. The review would’ve been 4 .5 except for the guy who was washing the carts as we came off. Just didn’t look like he wanted to be there crabby, wouldn’t even talk to us. However the gentleman at the front desk was great as were the Rangers. The course was in very good condition considering all the rain we had. It was a great time.

Great staff

The staff here are excellent in helping new people playing the course for the first time. The course has a nice layout. Do to the recent heavy rain the grass need to be cut, the rough was really rough. I am sure I will be back again to play this summer.

Great course, good value

Today was my first time playing Hilldale. I really liked the course, some great holes. I played after some heavy rains so the course was super wet, the 17th hole was closed. This is a very well-designed golf course with elevation changes, doglegs, etc. Hilldale talks about how good their greens are and I had no complaints. They rolled very true and I would consider them very good greens. I am looking forward to playing this course again when the conditions are better. I will definitely be back.

Coronavirus round

Had a nice day on the course. Tee times got backed up due to computer glitch but tee time was only delayed by 5 minutes. Finished in a little under 4 hours. I like to walk when playing but caution that there is a substantial walk between some of the holes so if you are not in the best shape you may want to avoid walking this course.

I booked through golf now which said cart was included. when i got to the course it was walking only. Luckily I brought my pull cart otherwise I would have been very disappointed. It was supposed to be a Hot Deal but for $30 walking I don't feel it was worth it.

Great course!!

Great course with challenging holes. Given the heavy rain prior and the volume of traffic on the first few days of being re-opened after the COVID-19 shutdown, I thought it held up very well and the staff done an excellent job with it. Thoroughly enjoyed it, would recommend to anyone in the area.

Covid rules

Nice course and layout. Pretty good condition overall but some wet spots. With Covid rules the cup was raised so no balls could enter the hole which I think is worse than the ones that have something in the bottom of the cup like foam.

1st Round After COVID-19 Restrictions

Course in very good conditions. Greens were slower than their typical. Rains from the previous days left filled water retention areas. Fairways drained well and playable. Most sand bunkers drained well too and playable. Will play this course again!

Overall nice course for the price

The only thing I didn’t love were the couple of holes on the back 9 that butt up against the highway. Not the most peaceful experience lol.

Great course; Rough walk

As mentioned, some holes are very far apart (up to like 2-3 min of walking in some cases)! It was a busy day, so I'm not surprised, but the play was a little slow. Took about 4 hr 35 min walking 18 and constantly waiting to tee off because of ppl ahead of me. Greens were in great condition! Fairway and rough seemed recently cut, so they were also good.

Slow pace and bad conditions

Course was closed to the back 9, do to the rain previous days. The pace of play was so bad because they loaded all tee times to the 9 holes. So at times there was 3 groups on 1 hole. Could of spread it more. Will not go back when that happens again.

Watch people for 4 somes

I saw people pairing into 4 somes multiple times and ruining pace of play for those who followed the rules and played 2 somes or alone.

I had to skip holes due to this. I’ve been playing here for 12 years and it’s a shame this happens during these times. Track is in great shape. But take the cup spacers out!!! Use pool noodles because you’re taking hole outs, chip ins, and aces out of play.
