About

Holes 18
Par 70
Length 6901
Slope 136
Rating 73.7
Type Semi-Private
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.

Great Practice Putting Green!

Several fairways had water-logged areas (especially #12), even though other areas were very dry. Overall, course in decent shape. Greens were well maintained, staff very friendly, and practice putting green is ALWAYS the best in the area!!

Course continues to go down hill

I have played this course multiple times through the years, both with friends and in golf outings. Needless to say, they have gone the price route in that the course was in terrible shape today. I understand you get what you get for $20 afternoon green fees, but no marshals, no on course water, no cart girls, bad greens, terrible bunkers and concrete everything else. I highly recommend playing any other course uless your budget does not permit.

Tee boxes and greens in poor condition. Sand traps.. if you call it that we're mostly rock, gravel and muddy water. Save your clubs. Staff was very friendly and accomadating. Course needs Major rehab.

Overall Great Course With A Great Price!

I have golfed here many times in the past few years. With the app GolfNow, I can play for $24 and sometimes cheaper if there is a hot deal. Now with a price like that, one would think that the quality of the round wouldn't be so good. On the contrary, the course was fantastic. Well kept fairways as well as fairly cut rough. The greens were not the best but they weren't the worst. Lot ball marks and debris from the trees that need to be cleared. Other than that, it is a truly remarkable course. The staff in the clubhouse was friendly, helpful, and understanding, which goes a long way for me. The pace of play was subpar as well. The tee times were back up when we got there. We had a 3:02 tee time, but didn't tee off until 3:20ish. I love this course, will be back very soon, and recommend it to any golfer of any skill-level!

Course is a bargain

This golf course is a great value, and is a challenging layout. The greens and tees were a little shaggy but it was an extremely hot holiday Sunday when we played.
