Very nice and challenging course

Pleasant round on a beautiful Summer Day. Will definitely test different parts of your game off the tee, in the fairway and especially around the greens. Chipping and putting from above the pin very hard. Some course familiarity should help with right club selection (to minimize these instances). A little on the slow side, but that’s to be expected on a Saturday. Especially when people are playing the wrong tees or not prepared with an extra ball when their 1st shot goes into the water (LOL). A couple suggestions for management: - fix up the hitting nets. In pretty bad shape with bad balls, no tees, no targets. That can’t be that expensive. - The gas engine carts are very noisy. Its a shame to have to hear that against the beautiful natural sorroundings. Every golfer announcing themselves on each hole/shot. Electric carts would be much quieter (and cleaner).

Greens Are DECEPTIVE!!

This was by far one of the most challenging courses I've played. The course layout was nice, but it was once you got to the green. If you didn't land your ball below the hole and you were putting from the top or sides, the ball would just run past the hole and it was hard to determine the break on side putts. Putting is usually my strong part of the game, but I never made so many 3 putts in any round. In addition they have some Par 3's that fly over water which is always fun besides many strategically placed bunkers that are hard to avoid if you don't plan your shot well. Lastly, the picturesque 18th hole with water guarding the approach from the right made this a fun hole to close out the round especially with the wind kicking up. The onboard GPS gave exact measurements from where you are to the pin, plus it is interactive that you can select points on the hole to find distance from where you are. Really didn't need to use my laser finder. I've been wanting to play Steeple Chase for some time and it didn't disappoint. The only drawback I saw was that there wasn't signage really directing you to holes especially when you made the turn as to where the 10th hole was. Also one other nice thing was that they had two bays with nets that you could get some swinging practice in before your round besides putting. Looking forward to playing again now that I know the secret to the greens.

Really fun course.

We played this course at the twilight rate and got through the 17th hole before it got too dark to see. This is a really nice course that fits in well with the surrounding courses. There is a nice variety of holes and a lot of interaction with water. The course is not heavily bunkered but a few of them are MASSIVE (especially 14). For a municipal course, it is well maintained. Were a lot of coolers with ice water on the course which is always appreciated. There was no range, but nets were provided to allow for warmup. The course next door has a nice range if needed. Will definitely play this course again!

Course was in overall decent shape however greens were top dressed and it was a pain with sand collecting on ball every putt. I was told greens are top dressed every two weeks so that is a pretty regular thing. Also course was really firm especially the rough. Overall course is good but I think it's over priced especially week day fees. Weekends forget it I would never pay that fee for this course. Have played courses this year with better conditions and price.
