Good day for golf

Enjoyed playing this course today. Wasn’t many people on the course at 10am, so the pace was great. Only real disappointment was the condition of the greens. Whether it was the grounds crew or inconsiderate players, the amount of ball marks on the greens was an issue. Overall, a straightforward course and an otherwise good day.

Hawks Tail is Reliable

Although soaking wet from the recent rains, the curse was playable and in good shape given the weather. Always a good pace of play, and reasonably priced.

dusty's take

This course will be a good course to, if it ever quits raining so they can keep up with all of the mowing. The greens were good but the rough in areas were tall. It took some time to find your ball. I'm sure this will be remedied when the weather clears up and they have a full staff on board for the summer.

Nice course but overpriced

The tee boxes, fairways, and roughs were well maintained. The greens are very small and the bunkers were in bad shape. The staff was very friendly. I think the course is a bit overpriced. Pretty open, but had water hazards in play on most holes. Playing it for the first time was a challenge not knowing where the hazards were. I would play this course again for the right price.

Nice Classic Design

Hawks Tail is a classic design with a good mix of holes. Most were tightish with mature trees guarding the fairways on either side. Some water was in play. The rough had some patchy spots, but otherwise was very thick and lush. Greens rolled true with good speed, and some were very tiny. Rest of the course was in good shape after the rough winter as well.

Overall it's worth a go. Nothing will knock your socks off, but it presents a good challenge.

Needs TLC

Loved the layout. Great amenities after the round in the clubhouse. The rough was extremely deep and needed cut. I feel bad for golfers that are high handicappers. The greens were small, fast and excellent but people NEED TO USE DIVOT REPAIR TOOLS!

Greenfield CC ....aka Hawk's Tail

First, let me warn you that you are not on a service road or a cart path, although the driveway into the clubs seems that way, and watch out for errant tee shots & cart crossings. The course is an interesting layout, and playing the back tees presented demanding par3s #3 & 17. Greens had recently been plugged & top-dressed, but I can't complain because I had <30 total putts. This is not a glitzy course, but certainly fun & well worth the Hot Deal Special.
