About

Holes 18
Type Public
Par 70
Length 6257 yards
Slope 125
Rating 70.1

Fox Run Golf Links opened in 1984 but over the past two years the course underwent a major renovation that made the layout both more challenging for serious players but also more forgiving for the recreational golfer. The multi-million-dollar renovation included enhancements to the hole layouts, redesigning the bunkers, installing a new irrigation system, and creating new practice and chipping areas. Water comes into play often throughout the golf course and you'll find elevation changes on nearly every green. The water holes will be especially tough if you have a tendency to slice the ball. Thanks to the varied layout, which includes some holes that are wide open and others that are more target-style golf, you will get the opportunity to work on different types of shots. Fox Run Golf Links is a challenging but fair test that players of all skill levels can enjoy.

Good, short course but incredibly slow

Loved that course and features. Was very short but with all of the water it kept it fairly challenging and fun. Golf carts were nice and the course was in good shape. The pace of play was terrible. It took over 4 and a half hours to play 18. People in front of us were not keeping up the pace and the team behind us hit into us a few times. Otherwise, lovely course.

Great course!

I thought the course was in great shape. They were preparing for a late tournament and got shuffled if my cart fast but other then that it was great.
Some of the workers inside were not paying attention and were on their phones but once someone let them know they helped. Suggestion would be no phones where people can see you using them.

Nice course

Nice course but due to recent rains it was cart path only for carts and a number of areas were very soggy and wet, including fairways! Definitely got my feet wet and had to endure a number of problems with wet areas not allowing you to play the ball.

Hello, Bruce101776. Thank you for reviewing the course. Your feedback about the course is important to us and we are glad to see you enjoyed the course aside from the recent weather. With the recent rain we are working to get everything up to par. The current condition is by no means the standard we strive to achieve.

Impossible weather

We had to quit because a storm came up and we had to quit because course called us off. They told me that they could not give us a rain check because we were using golf now and should request one from you.

Please advise.

Pretty good overall. Tee boxes could use improvement.

The course was pretty well maintained except for the tee boxes. We were one of the only few playing that day so it couldn’t have been all from the same day but there were tons of divots on the tee boxes. It looks like they just kept moving the box to the area with the least divots but the groundskeepers don’t seem to do anything to the old divots themselves. Once you’re off the tee, the rest of the course was nice.

Pretty good condition considering weather

The course was in pretty good shape considering the amount of rain we have had. Greens were in pretty good shape, however there were many unprepared ball marks, maybe they didn't get rolled because of the weather. Rough is always high here and this day was no exception. Staff was friendly, but you can't take the cart into the parking lot to get your clubs. GPS on cart was adequate and a nice feature for the price.
