Tamarack Golf Club is a course that will test your shot-making skills yet it is still player-friendly enough to appeal to all skill levels. Pete Dye designed the course with tight, sculpted fairways and undulating greens that come in a range of sizes. The layout offers plenty of challenges with water or sand coming into play on every hole. The golf course will test your accuracy but it is not as difficult as many other Dye designs. The third is one of the toughest holes. A severely undulating green protected by deep bunkers makes placement vitally important on this par 3. The 15th is one of the back nine's more challenging holes. It presents an interesting risk-reward opportunity with a myriad of teeing options. Water lines the entire right side and the two-tiered green is flanked with bunkers to the front and right.

All sand traps need a lot of help. Many were virtually unplayable.

So so

Booked a rate, which included a cart, only to get there and find it walking only. They don’t offer push carts. Course was in decent shape for March 1st.

Nice Course and Value

Played a single and thru 9, pace was good and course is well maintain. On 11 got behind a 2some that wanted to take “their fair of extra shots”, which absolutely put my game in the gutter. Finally played thru at 15. Course excellent. Greens really good. Second cut in fairway, way fineable and payable. Looking forward to playing again for end of season.

Used cart

Very nice course that was in excellent shape. Great value at only $30 played on a Friday. A lot of water on most of the holes, but plenty of room if you hit it fairly straight. The back nine had a few interesting greens with some big slopes, especially the last hole.

Good Experience

The pace of play was terrible having to wait five to ten minutes on every tee box, but I played with a very nice young man so overall it was a good experience.

Good Value for money

Can;t beat it for $20. Greens have lots of ball marks and some of the traps can use some additional sand. Fairways in great shape Teed off on time and let a twosome through after that played at our own pqce with no one ahead or behind us.

Great carts

Loved the carts that are electric, nice and smooth with no noise. Staff even put ice in the cooler attached to the cart. A very nice feature when it is hot. No cart girl so stock up before you tee off.
