Interesting Layout keeps your interest

3rd time playing, 1st this season. I like the routing and greensites on this course. Bunkers are not maintained at all and sure it's rough around the edges but there are several holes on this course that provide nice challenges and thoughtful shotmaking. Greens were in very nice shape shape - smooth and rolling well. Gravel cart paths so it's very bumpy. No water jugs on the course so provision up prior to heading out or at turn. If you haven't played Palmira you should I've always enjoyed my day. Grass Range, good practice area. Old school clubhouse which helps with the quiet "rustic" charm of what I consider a hidden gem to get back to a few times a year. Hardly anyone there on a holiday weekend afternoon? Amazing. You do have to call for a time....no online tee sheet. $30-$40 course, 3.5 stars (if they had water on course and maintained the bunkers it would 4 stars plus). A fun interesting play with lots of water on the back.

Nice find

This was a fun course. Lot of short par 4's. Lot of elevated tee shots. Fairways are pretty narrow. Played on a Friday afternoon for the $29 twilight fee. Got on just after a highschool golf event finished so there were a lot of people around. Course was not crowded though and we played at our own pace. Never had to wait on anyone or had anyone push us. Course was in very good shape for being after a tournament. Greens were big and well kept. Large driving range. Didn't care for the practice putting green. Most holes were bumpers and only two cut out. Clubhouse was small. Staff was very friendly. Beer was a good price. They had Yuengling. Wish this course was on golfnow. Seems pricey unless playing the twilight fee. Would be a great to get a hot deal. I will go back.

Nice Layout - Keeps your interest

First time played in very windy conditions. Already want to go back. Several really neat golf holes. Course was in decent shape except for the sand traps which are not maintained at all and some tee boxes which were pretty chewed up. Course was very wet from recent rains however the greens were in very decent shape...not aerated as of 10/17 and rolling well. The clubhouse isn't much to speak of but the prices are reasonable. The cart paths are gravel and it's a bumpy ride in turn avoiding wet areas. The rough was very long...in process of cutting it......but the track is decently maintained enough and there are plenty of challenges throughout the course. The $25 paid was well worth it. The course is especially pretty with all the fall colors. 3.5 stars in my book......if I can get on for $30 or less it's still a solid test of your game even if the conditions aren't pristine. Reminded me a tad of the now closed Oak Club of Genoa in some aspects. Elevation changes, plenty of water and the course features some interesting twists and charms with a nice finish - 15th par 3 has a 40 yard huge wide shallow green, short par 4 16th features a tree to navigate in the driving zone, 17th par 5 requires a well placed 2nd with significant uphill approach to a green surrounded by trees and the par 3 18th is a very pretty over the pond finisher. Happy I finally "found" this place.....one to get back to a few times.

Great value, requires thinking

First the negatives. Most of the traps are terrible. The facilities and carts are dated. The pace of play the day I played was terrible for the second nine but I did the back first and when I made the turn on a Friday every cart was out. Now the good. This family run facility has a great staff that works to make sure you have fun. The scorecard is extremely helpful for singles or visitors. Shows the hazards and distances. The course conditions, in late September, were excellent. The greens were extremely good and rolled true. The holes vary greatly adding to the enjoyment. Each hole requires a different strategy to navigate it successfully. There is lots of water on the back nine and terrain on the front to provide some good challenges. Would definitely play again as I was visiting family and this course is definitely staying on the playlist.
