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.

Gouging

I love Fox Run it’s one of my go to local courses, in normal times I feel the fees are fair. I was surprised by the increase where the rate was almost doubled for a weekday round. I understand golf courses have taken a beating during the quarantine, but do you have to make it up on the backs of folks who have been starving to play? I’ll search for more reasonable rates.

Fox Run Golf Course

This golf course is for the beginner+ golfers. Staff and overall everything was fine. Just extremely slow play. Was waiting on the 10th tee for over 20 minutes just to tee off. In my opinion not acceptable. Oh well, it was a learning experience.

Great Course, not a friendly staff

I live across the course and would like to play more on this enjoyable golf. But the staff always seems a bit grumpy, particularly the old guy who checks your tee time. People come to play and enjoy the day. Try to relax guys.

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.
