Waste of money

Don’t waste your money, greens are half dirt on probably 12-14 holes. Fairways are overgrown and feel like concrete with a little bit of grass on top.

Course has gone to garbage.

I don’t always write course reviews, but I feel I owe it to my fellow golfers for this one. I used to play this course while in college, and I remember it being much nicer. I knew it was going to be an interesting day when there was a guy filling up golf carts with a tank right in the parking lot. The gas guy proceeds to ask, “Do you have to ride by yourself?” Yeah, I am a solo golfer. I’m riding by myself. I warm up on the range, and the gas guy is also the bucket retriever. He is driving his cart on the hitting area of the range. I still have a few balls in my bucket and he drives over almost running over my driver to ask for the bucket....sure whatever. Now let’s get to the round. The pace of play was awful. I finally got fed up after 3:30 hours and 14 holes. Another employee was driving around the course letting groups know it’s slow today. Thanks lady, I figured that out on hole 1. Instead of telling us, maybe get people to pick up the pace. The score cards have time checks to help out with that. There should be no excuses. Let’s wrap up with the conditions. It’s been a generous year of rain and warmth. Clearly Fox Creek didn’t get the memo these were ideal care conditions. Of the 14 holes I played, 12 had greens with a significant amount of sand and dead spots. No one fixes a ball mark, and you either putt through desert or craters. Good luck getting a true read. The fairways and tee boxes were also dead. I’m not sure the last time they mowed. The rough was weeds, and there were much dead grass clumps scattered I lost 2 balls in that today. The round and bucket of balls was about $40; $20 would have been too much. It’s not worth with the time, effort, or money to play here. I will not be back.

Friendly Staff, Challenging Course, Fairways Need Some TLC

Awesome staff, very friendly and attentive. They give you a super helpful booklet with info on each hole. You'll need it! Expect lots of ground under repair. The Fairways are a bit bald. Carts have seen better days. Our cart backfired once on a downhill. Super fun course! Very challenging, but can be forgiving. Starts off hard, but the back nine is pretty straightforward. Will definitely be back again soon!

Great value and pace of play

This course is a very difficult course to play and we love it! It challenges in ways that other courses in the area do not. There is a lot of water so definitely bring some balls you don’t mind losing. Our pace of play was the best it has been in quite a while but we were a twosome with twosomes before and after us as well. Highly recommend!!

Greens in good shape!

The greens where in good shape but some of the fairways were either hard as a rock or the grass needed some work.

Course conditions were very poor. Fairways and tee boxes were very tall and not mowed at all.

Terrific layout

The layout was one of the best I’ve ever played. There were elevation changes, some tight driving holes, some wide open fairways. The par 3’s were all challenging with carry over water on 3 of the 4 holes. The greens were as good as you can get. They were smooth and true. The pro shop manager was phenomenal! Very personable and certainly made me feel welcomed. My only complaint was the grass in many places hadn’t been mowed in a while. I’ll be back again to play this fun course.

A lot of fun

This course is challenging, and also very fun to play. There’s a few holes that are interesting and that kind of thing peaks my interest. The new management seems very helpful and friendly and the pro shop manager is super nice and super helpful as well! I would recommend giving this course a try. You’ll love it.
