Have heard about this course from my club pro years ago but have not had the time to play until now. I am 62 and played from the back tees. Not a long course, not too narrow, but you had to hit shots to score. Almost every club used in the bag. Some great risk reword holes and quite a bit of sand. It is worth to note the sand is of great consistent quality. Most greens were small and most had undulation. They putted true. Plenty of trees make this a beautiful course. Good enough to make me write about it. Enjoy

My foursome plays 15 to 20 courses in this area each year including Weaver Ridge. It doesn't have Weaver Ridge's amenities but it is a far better course. It is better maintained...far better. It is by far the best course within 60 miles. Outstanding value even without the discount we used this time. Superior and fast greens, rough is playable and fair, fairways obviously kept watered and perfectly groomed...and the cart paths though mostly gravel are smooth and like the rest of course well maintained. Staff is very friendly as are the regulars.

Wolf Creek struck me as a quality older course. The greens were in good condition, fast, and had a challenging amount of contour. I don't remember having any putts of 3' or more that were flat. The fairways were average width. The course has plenty of trees, so if you are wild off the tee you will probably find yourself needing to punch-out a few times. The fairways and rough were in good shape. The course has a few creeks/water on maybe six holes. I don't recall seeing any sand-traps on the course. Most of the tee-boxes had just be aerated the day we played. I think they will be fine in a couple of days.

We drove about 45 minutes to get to the course. We played 18 with a cart for $19.50 per person (that price includes GolfNow's fee). For that price I would be will to drive to Wolf Creek again to play.

I used to live near here and played it fairly regularly. It has changed only slightly and for the better. When I started there was no watering - now there is. The holes haven't changed. The greens are among the fastest in the state - probably a 12 - and sloped. I love them. Holes dog both left and right. This is a $50 course located in such a rural area that the price is way too low. Excellent value for money.

Couldn't ask for a better maintained course. The gravel cart paths were

perfectly groomed. The greens were very fast but true like putting on carpet as were the fairways. The rough was cut short and fair(could actually find your ball without much effort unlike many in the area). Front nine starts out fairly easy, thus the somewhat challenging difficulty rating, but gets tougher with the the back nine being very challenging! $14 was in addition to prepaid discount card.

Cart path only on the front nine should have been cart path on entire course. Many drives hit puddles in the middle of the fairway and just plugged. Course conditions were such that the course should have probably been closed for a couple of days so the course could have dried out. Frustrating

They evidently had lots of rain. Appears to be lots of mold or fungus in the fairways. There is probably not much that can be done considering all the rain that has accumulated. The greens are very fast but roll true. The greens are well maintained.

Thanks Wolf Creek for the $20 (fee inclusive) hot deal. Enjoyed the afternoon. As a first timer was welcomed and allowed to tee off early. This is a really nice well routed fairly "mid" school golf course with superb greens....wonderful speed/roll out/extremely smooth....greens you can look at and read the break. I'll reiterate - absolutely superb putting conditions. From the White tees course plays over 6600 yards and it's more than most golfers can handle as this course appears to be very wet even with a little rain...and plays even longer. Lots of doglegs to keep your interest and you have to keep your ball out of the trees to have a chance at scoring. Most of the greens are rounded but some are very large targets and slope back to front. Very well maintained except the fairways are "patchy".....there are areas of good fairway grass and a lot not so good from burnout/wet conditions. Can't complain about that...just move your ball to a nearby good patch of fairway to hit from. From the white tees all 4 of the par 5's are "brawny" challenges....you have to hit good really long (250 yard plus) tee shots. Rough areas are in good shape. If you want to enjoy your day play the 5800 gold tees....you can at least make the corners of dog legs on several holes and the course becomes reasonably playable for the average hitter.....the par 5's do get a tad short.....but the rest of the course plays from a decent length and it's really "tight" tree lined in some areas. The difference between the White/Gold tees is very large.....my suggestion would be to rework/rethink the Gold tee yardages and placement on a few holes to bring that up to 6000 to 6100 yards....moving them back a tad. The 16th (par 5) has a dead left dog leg after your tee shot (requiring a least a 250 yard shot to make the leg which then goes over Wolf Creek) and the 17th is a very pretty well designed par 4. If the fairways were in better shape 4.25 stars. A 4 star rating from me because the putting green conditions (which is 1/2 the battle) were some of the best experienced all season. Worth the drive and worth $30 or so. Thanks for a great afternoon Wolf Creek!!

Course is in need of fairway repair from spring flooding hot temps then torrential rainstorms.

very challenging from the white tees for my age and health. But playing from the gold tees took some challenges away they need a middle tee about 6100 yards.

6 in of rain in 2 days prior to playing left this course a sloppy swampy mess! However it is a beautiful course with some unsuspecting hazards and some golf ball loving mature trees. Beautiful greens, fast and had a few elevation changes.

Fun course. play when dry!

Some of the fairways were burnt up, but the greens were fantastic. It's the first time I've played Wolf Creek in about 10 years, and it was worth the drive. I look forward to a return trip and the challenge of not three putting a third of the holes.
