A really tough course that is not for the faint hearted players. Only big boys can play here. This course will beat you up in so many ways. But the hilly terrain and the 2 most beautiful par 3’s in the area are worth the pain.
Many areas roped off from carts, causing long walks to get to ball. This might be unavoidable due to very hilly terrain. Bu if your legs can handle it, it’s a nice challenging course.
Good course - needs new owner
The land is great, the layout of the course is wonderful, but this place needs an owner who cares even a little bit. Maintenance of the course is the bare minimum. Clubhouse is a joke. It was a busy Sunday morning, no ranger or bar cart to be found. Ball washers were falling apart. Cart paths have always been in rotten shape. I could identify about $5 million worth of upgrades that would help this place out, but even a small fraction of that invested would go a long way. Just something to tell the customers that you are interested in running a quality golf course - because it's obvious right now that no one there does.
This course will beat you up if you don't have your A game. You really should play this golf course a few times to get the feel for where you need to hit the ball. tough on your 1st or 2nd round here I can't wait to play it again.
Big Run a true classic
Big Run is a true test of skill for go;fers of all abiliities. The 605 yd part five 9th is just part of the fun. The uphill finish on the 18th is one to remember.
Have a hot dog or brat at the turn with your favorite beverage and you will and your friends will have a round to remember.
Challenging golf course. You’ll get your monies worth.
It is what it is
I agree with the reviewers who commented on the patchy fairways and long rounds. We play every week and this is the only course all year where we agreed to roll the balls in the fairways.
The reasons for the long rounds is the course difficulty. Plus the fact that this place doesn't just draw low handicappers. It is so tough due to combination of dense trees, rolling terrain, and undulating (two-tier) greens. Pace of play could be improved slightly by:
* I know it's expensive to remove trees, but how 'bout start with the dead trees?
* several of the greens were borderline (usga-like) unfair due to positioning of the pins. It alright to have one green per round like that, but 3-4-5 of them is totally unacceptable.
I know that none of this will happen, so I agree with the posters who advised to play this place only once per year (if even that)and know what you are getting into.
Beautiful, scenic course.
Beautiful course with rolling hills and no two holes the same. Need to keep ball in the fairways as rough was thick and sometimes difficult to find your ball. Greens in great shape and rolling true. Lots of trees lining many holes; very little bare spots, even in the rough. Course maintained very well. A challenging but fair golf course.
I hate this course....
I have played this course several time over the years...heck years ago, I use to walk it....not now. In all these years, I don't know why I play it. I have never played well there, despite being a decent golfer. Don't get me wrong, the course is great, you use every club in your bag. But it eats my lunch...yet every now and then, I think, I can tame this thing. Take a few extra balls, and if you are still in your 20's or early 30's and are in decent shape, you can walk it. But enjoy the last hole if you do.
An Outdated Big Hitter's Paradise
Tee time: 2:36 on a Sunday ($51),
I could see Big Run being a pristine course back in the day, but that was probably 50+ years ago. The clubhouse and signs are all extremely outdated. The range finders attached to the carts are outdated, but at the same time kind of cool because it's rare to see an amenity like that. The course itself was very challenging due to all of the elevation change, long distances, and old trees. The layout earns 5 stars from me (great views, secluded feel), however I can't say the same for the conditions. Greens were solid. Bunkers could definitely use work. Fairways were very poor (patchy dry spots and not manicured). I don't know if I will be returning to Big Run unless I catch a good deal or I am already in the area.
NEVER EVER EVER AGAIN!
Tee time was at 12:57. After 4 hours and 20 minutes we just completed the 14th hole. They are a below average at best for the amount of money they charge. I have played much nicer courses for half the money. The course conditions were well below average, dead trees all over the course, extremely bad patches of grass all over the fairways. Go play ruffled feathers or any other course but this one. I went into the clubhouse to complain about the pace of play, because teeing off at a little before 1 pm, you would expect to be done by dark,, but the employees just looked at me and didn’t even offer me another round at another time. I am disappointed with this course and you will be to. Spend your money elsewhere.
Fairway grass has something wrong, dry patches and bad spots all over.
