this course can get very challenging.

Unfortunately we had some bad weather today and we didn’t really experience how fast the green can be!! The golf course doesn’t play very long but it can be very challenging, You definitely have to bring your A game and be able to shape shots both ways. I’ll definitely come back and play this golf course on a better day. Ps. Also great customer service in the clubhouse and the dining area very welcoming.

It is a beautiful course! The greens were a little hard to figure out! Most of them were slow...but hit and miss...when you would hit the ball more firm...then that green would play fast...go figure! Alot of the ball washers didn't have water in them, and alot of the holes didn't have any water to drink, like they normally do! When we came back to the clubhouse they didn't have anything to eat as far as sandwiches or hotdogs...said it would be 15 to 20 minutes to prepare! No Gatorade...and no candy or energy bars to give you a boost to play the last nine! All in all it's a great place to play golf!

Nice course, too early in the season

This course is out of the way but worth the drive if you are in the area. Nice clubhouse, interesting layout set in rolling hills with woods and long-range vistas. The premises have a country-club feel and appear to be dominated by local members who respect the facilities. The layout is challenging, and I would not recommend this course for less experienced players. The staff treated us very well. The weather was near perfect for April, and the course was fairly empty, even for a weekday. Our only concern would be course conditions. Being so early in the season, the greens were not yet awake, making putts extremely slow. This is no fault of the course keepers given the late arrival of Spring this year. We would definitely play here again.

For four holes the grass cutter was cutting the fairways while we were trying to golf, very disturbing!

Great day!

We enjoyed playing here. We got off a little before our tee time and did not have to wait for players ahead of us a.f no one was waiting for us. Course was in great shape. We will definitely play here again.

Great course friendly & helpful staff!

This was the best course we played all year! That being said we golfed on Nov. 29th so in the spring early fall the course would be even better. The fairways were clear of leaves and the greens were clear of debris. Will definitely come back here next year!

Fun Time

For a fun time try Lake Carroll. We played on 10/10/16 and found to course to be in great shape. Fairways were cut to our liking and the greens rolled true. Beautiful fall day, well manicured course and golfing with great friends. What else can you ask for?

A Great Bargain

Too bad I live 90 minutes from wonderfully wooded course. Play once a year; but huge greens and rolling hills for tee shot make play entertaining and fun. I played whites on front and gold on back as I am 70. Much more enjoyable from golds/ no 3-woods in to par 4's. They have had alot of rain/ be sure to check first for conditions/ wouldn't be as much fun from cart-path only. Course is in great shape and the greens roll true.

always challenging

My first time on a tee box was here at Lake Carroll back some 30 years ago. 18 holes consisted of a 2nd round of the 9 hole course. Time has definitely favored this course. You can play this course twice in one day and can't play it the same way. The greens are so challenging everytime because the conditions change with the weather conditions. This could be said about any course but this one is really stands out. From start to finish the greens went from moist and a bit slow to dry and super fast to half and half. You never can tell how your ball is going to roll when you hit it on the green. Its a great challenging course. I gave a 3 star on speed of play simply because they were just so busy. Great course.
