I found this coarse challenging. I liked the lay out of the coarse as a whole. A couple of holes were confusing in the layout. ????? The value Is INCREDIBLE! I will recommend this coarse to friends. I played after a rain. The grass was long

bunkers were still soggy. All in all not bad. Good pace of play. I'm looking forward to playing this coarse again.

What a cool little course, this turned out to be. Everything was well maintained, the staff was friendly, and the patrons were as well. A couple little things, some tees were placed behind over hanging trees, and some folks were scuffing up the greens, when they walked. Not a major issue. I will be back to play this little gem again.

Parkview is a great! It has large well kept greens and fairways. Tee boxes are likewise maintained and watered. The course offers an open layout which is perfect for all levels of golfers yet pins can be placed in challenging locations. Furthermore, the food in the clubhouse is very good at a reasonable price point. I recommend the sausage and cheese biscuit for the morning and jumbo dog in the afternoon. Finally, Parkview is one of the few courses open all year round.

Well maintained course, very friendly staff. Other than the greens being watered while we played and then the sprinklers kicking on on the first 5 holes on the bavk 9 it was a good experience. Challenging with long par 3's. I recommend playing here

Had a nice day of golf at a nice course. Major issue was getting stuck behind a group of 5 players. There were more than one group playing with 5 people. This should not be allowed. They would not let me play through despite them seeing me wait at on every hole once I caught up with them.

I have been playing this course for many years,play every week and love the layout,however the staff has become very unfriendly especially against golf now people,and especially the younger girl they have had working..very rude,they say they make no money off this but continue to have tee times on here everyday,up until this year the course had always been in great shape,but now they have raised the rates and the course in my eyes is falling apart,almost all the tee boxes are in rough shape,the greens need a lot of work and the sand traps are always in bad shape..I have decided to take a break from here for a bit and hopefully they will see this and maybe make some changes

We play this course several times a month and enjoy playing it. It really helps to hit your driver straight in order to score. The course is very hilly so don't expect many level lies for your shots. The first two holes have out of bounds left which is a major street with lots of traffic, so keep your shots right of the tee. Many challenging holes and all the greens have lots of slope. Expect to three putt some of the greens. Fairly long off the tees even though the do not have a blue tee. Three long uphill par 3's with tough putting especially if you hit past the hole. Nice public course for the money.

Great course. Nice layout up & down hills. Seems to have a lot of walkers so pa e could be slow, we weren't behind any walkers however. There were some bad spots due to a lot of rain lately, but they were working on fixing them. Staff was extremely friendly. Will play again

I like this course but the pace of play is normally a bit slow for my tastes. It is an easy track and they try and keep it in decent shape. It's not worth the amount they ask for as the rack rate but you can find deals on golf now.
