Fun local course in good shape !

This is a nice local course that is in good shape late in the season. Despite area dry weather ( on course creek and pond dry ) the gateways and greens are in better than average shape. Several tees offer more challenging options, and overall layout flows nicely. Smaller clubhouse was clean and has a fireplace. Great for a beverage after your round !

Fair Course, Ruined by Customers

Scheduled ridiculously close together on a Thursday morning, there is no reason. The course regulars are beyond rude for all the wrong reasons. Spent 3 min on the 16th hole tee box, the group behind us parked in front of the tee box yelling that we couldn’t take practice swings, and were taking too long, since they were waiting. I guess they thought we should hit into the foursome ahead of us? Mind you, they had, on four separate occasions, landed a shot within 10 feet of our group with no warning whatsoever. You can’t blame the course for the regulars that frequent it, I just think people should know what they are getting into. Upkeep of the course was fair, not great. Varied speed on the greens, considerably packed sand traps. Overall wasn’t angry at the price spent for 18 holes, just a less than enjoyable experience that could have been avoided through scheduling.

Fair Condition Course

Lack of water on the course and it is showing. Hard to get tees in the ground.. Greens were a little shaggy as well.

Thoroughly enjoyable

Great, fast round on a quirky course. Greens were interesting and in good shape. Ground was hard so the ball was running all over the place—so fun! Some really neat holes, especially on the back nine. I played with hickories, and I’d say it’s an excellent hickory course. Highly recommended to all!

Bad Course and Staff

Got a Groupon for cheap so get what you pay for, but left this course feeling maybe I didn’t. Was 6 minutes late and tee time got bumped an hour because we were “really late”. Course is in poor condition all around. Tee boxes, fairways (there are none), bunkers (ditto), etc. course was also dead except 5 groups and we were all on each other’s heels which is frustrating. No flow at all. Avoid if at all possible.

Great course

I’ve played this course since the 1970’s. I’ve seen it change hands a couple of times and the current owners have turned a decent course into a really nice venue. Highly recommended.

Concrete heaven.

It's like hitting off of concrete! Tee box grass is about two inches. The greens are destroyed from sun spots or poor mowing. Price to play/membership is cheap for a reason! Not worth playing if you are a serious golfer.

Course really dry

The Fairways are spotty. Some greens show a lot of wear and tear.. sanded many in spots.. Did not like the idea of the Golf pro and his guest.. teeing off 10 when we were making the turn and had to wait.. slowed us up by about 15-20 minutes.

Great play

Whispering Creek is a unique layout with some challenges that can be risky or rewarding. To me it turned out risky. Hole 17 is a challenge that I have not figured out yet. Fun time and food people on staff.

It’s a golf course

Course was in fair condition. Apparently, the 2nd hole tee boxes were changed, but, the scorecard did not reflect this. No signage regarding this. Not sure what was going on. Definitely worth the GolfNow price of $10 + fees. But not a penny more!!!
