I wish that the greens would have held better. Tough to guess what club to use.

The variety of holes is nice.

Being a disabled veteran, I had to skip the 17th hole due to the long walk to get to shots from the fairway across the creek. Why not just build a cart bridge?

First time on this track, and altho the carts have yardage meters, that was no help to me walking. So I was generally ignorant on distances, especially with *very* limited yardage markers on the holes, and none at all on the tees. Even finding where the next holes were located was a challenge, since the scorecard only lists the holes individually, not the entire layout.

That said, the traditional links format is a nice contrast to other courses in the area. Altho it seemed like the entire maintenance crew was mowing during my round, there is still *plenty* of the usual long grass to punish errant shots, along with strategically placed traps. (Which definitely can happen if you don't know where to hit on the many blind shots.). Greens were running true, to about an 8. I'll take my first-time 80 and be satisfied, and try it again if there's a decent rate. Altho probably on a day with less wind, since as usual on a links course with plenty of wind, I was needing two clubs less or more from hole to hole. *When or if* I could actually determine yardage.

I have played Nevel for over 15 years and it never disappoints! Challenging and fair, STAY out of the tall rough and you are good. Excellent set up and always well manicured.

This is the course of choice when I have friends in town that want to get 18 or 36 in. The clubhouse could be upgraded to make it more inviting, but after a round here ......the clubhouse is insignificant.

We were in the area for a trade show and heard this was the place to play. We pulled into the lot and were mesmerized by the beauty. Walked up to the clubhouse and were taken baxk by the lack of friendliness by the staff. My buddy forgot his shoes so he purchased a pair but had to pull teeth for help. No hello or welcome but we paid and had a blast. The course was in fantastic shape. A true links course with several blind shots. A true test of your skills. If I'm ever back in the area, I'll play here again.

I absolutely love this course. I was excited to get back here, since the last time I played the course it ate me up and spit me back out. And boy am I glad I came back. It's so beautiful here. Great tee boxes, beautiful fairways, challenging greens, everything you could want in a golf course, and its open to the public! One of, if not the best, public courses in the area. And reasonably priced. Even better with a hot deal from golf now. I played for less than 30 bucks. All I can say is, do not pass up the opportunity to play this course. I will DEFINITELY be back. Sooner than later, I hope.

30 to 40 mile wind and wet. Moved up a tee to compensate. Course in good shape . Had a good round. Was allowed to tee off early because of weather. But if you want food need to leave the course. Microwave available to heat up what they do have.

What a great course and staff. Incredibly there is always some foursome that plays at a snails pace and refuses to follow the rules of golf and allow you to play thru.

Follow one again this time, from #4, and we waited at every hole. Even asked and was ignored. No groups within 3 holes ahead.

First off, if you're someone who will only play a course in top condition, this is a good track for you. The course is extremely well conditioned as of 8/6/17. Despite a wet and rainy day, greens rolled true and bunkers played very well.

I got a good deal on a Hot Deal tee time at this course, but probably won't be back unless I catch another one of those deals. The course layout is good, but an abundance of blind shots and a couple (in my opinion) goofy holes on the back 9 aren't my cup of tea. In my opinion the standard prices here are probably a bit higher than they ought to be compared to the top courses in the area, but the course was packed the day I played despite bad weather, so who am I to say.

All in all this is a good public track and I would recommend it if the price is right.
