Good to come back

This course has several holes that reward a well placed drive. You can still scramble to save par most times, but the first shot is really rewarded if placed well.

Dry course fairways and tee boxes hard

I have always liked this course. Right now the dry weather has made this course hard as a rock. Tee boxes are in poor shape and fairways are pretty dead but ball travels a long way. The good thing is green are in great shape. They are running fast ands true.

Nice golf course

Tee boxes are in dire need for some attention. Thin grass and hard as a rock. It has been dry around here and the course is dry but holding up well. Greens are good and smooth. Fairways are hard and running out. Used a good deal from golf now and had a great time.

Greens smooth but slower than last year.

We had a good round of golf today.Above average course in good shape. Greens not running as fast as the past. Also no time has been spent raking bunkers. Sand is there but it needs some attention.

The course is in the best shape that I’ve ever seen it. Every green was perfect. By far the best value in the area. Always a pleasure to see Tom in the clubhouse

Willow Pond is a great value!

Played 18 today at Willow Pond and the course was in nice shape for late in October. A perfect fall day with full sun in the afternoon and low wind! The fairways are in great shape, the greens have been aerated and sanded so putting is a bit tricky but manageable. The staff in the club house were great as lunch was very good! The price was great! I would definitely play this course again!

Delightful

Wonderful time playing this course. Nice wide fairways. Greens in in excllent condition. Fairways on the short side but ideal for intermediate players like my wife and me. Staff super friendly and accommodating. 19th hole served up one of the best burgers I have ever tasted.

First Time Playing

Solid

Nothing wrong with this course. Nothing incredible either, but a solid option. We visited from Tennessee and enjoyed playing a non-bermudagrass course. Fairways were in good to great condition, greens were pretty slow and relatively flat. Course layout was relatively easy to play for a first-timer. Staff was super nice, clubhouse was ok but nothing fancy. Overall, a good option and we will likely return next time in town.
