Course in Poor Shape
The course is not maintained at all and in very poor conditions. Practically the bunkers are like concrete and you cannot hit a ball out of them.
It was a tight course to start with and with the rough not being maintained, you either lose the ball easily or you end up hitting a bad shot from the thick rough.
Pay a little extra and play some of the other courses - you will be much happier, especially if you are only in Deep Creek Lake for a few days
They have moved around the holes so much that my Garmin could not keep up and never got a proper reading
worth the ride
While I live more than an hour away from this course, the ride there was definitely worth it. The course is challenging and it will require a variety of shots to score well. The conditions were excellent with the glaring exception of the sand traps (technically, they'd have to have SAND in them to call them that) but given all that the course offers, one could overlook that shortcoming. It is a good layout with some tight fairways. A good challenge.
Nice but very dry and in need of considerable tlc
I’m sure at one time this was a premier course but has fallen on some difficult times. The course is challenging and attractive but the fairways were arid and the greens inconsistently watered. Overall a good value and pace was excellent.
This is a great course for the area however make sure you’re hitting them good because this course is also fairly difficult with the tight fairways
Liked the course the fairways and greens were in great shape. The sand traps were bad so we just stayed out of them. We got a great deal on golf now so can’t complain about the price. I would play it again.
Very disappointed with the condition of a $70 course- Fantasy Valley. $24 for a 6 pack and the staff wasn’t the friendliest. Rough was extremely long everything else wasn’t taken care of. Would NOT come back
Not what it once was
The course and amenities are very dated. With the removal of a couple holes, it really made this course an eye sore for me. The sand traps were not taken care of at all and they are really starting to let it all go. The sheds need torn down all over the course. Greens were discolored but held true. The course is extremely narrow and greens are small if you are not an avid player, I would not recommend. Take at least a dozen balls as the rough is impossible to find anything right off the fairway. Just trending downward
Fantasy Valley. Dave
Fantasy Valley was a most interesting course. Staff is friendly and very helpful. Course layout is excellent with some very challenging holes. Greens were excellent condition and roll was good. I would recommend playing this course .
This course is very tight. If you have trouble keeping your ball in the fairway, you will have a long day searching for your golf ball. It is not a “forgiving” golf course. However, the greens were nice; fairways were nice but some holes were extremely difficult for the novice. It is not an easy course and is challenging. If you want to play an easy scoring course, this one is not for you.
Good for your buck!
This course was great for the price. However, some of the Par 3s seemed more like Par 4s. It could have been because of the wind that it was hard to get a good grasp on what club to use
if the sand traps were kept up the course would be great. Tee boxes and fairways were in good shape.
The course is in good shape. Just the fairways were a little high. I always enjoy the view from some of the tee boxes. However the course tends to be a little pricey. I guess since it's a resort course and there isn't much competition you can charge what you.
Course needs attention
Beautiful layout, but course needs a lot of attention. Was a great price on Hot Deal . But the conditions of the traps, haven’t been raked in like forever and no rakes on course. Greens very not bad. Putting well.
Holiday weekend Golf Bust!
Disappointed in overall condition. Traps were grass with a little sand. No edging. Didn’t play out of most. Tee boxes bad. Fairways average at best. Greens were ok. Paid $69 for a course that is not worth more than $30. Won’t be dragging the boys up here for a golfing trip. Only one staff member. He was very pleasant. I could tell he had heard this from others.
Nice course - friendly staff
Generally a nice, playable course, requiring some really good shots here and there. Conditions were in good shape. Friendly staff. Overall good experience.
The staff is great and the course was not bad for the price.
Solid " in your face" golf course.
I have played this course many times since the third day it was open in 19i0, a despite many rerouted due to the skiing operations, the course has maintained its character. The 140 slope from the blue tees is well-earned, and the conditions yesterday, especially the greens, were remarkable.
Its sister course, Lodestone, gets the #2 Maryland ranking, but Fantasy Valley ( I still call it WISP) is a worthy 'partner'.
Can't wait to play both courses on a "play both for $99" special.
Fantasy Valley: Bad name, great golf course...
Fantasy Valley is the new name for the golf course at the Wisp Resort at Deep Creek Lake MD. Terrible name, but great golf course. I was concerned that the course conditions would suffer after the Hale Irwin Lode Stone course (Wisp owns both courses) opened a few years ago, but that did not occur. In fact, the Wisp course is better than ever, and I've been playing it for 30 years. Always a treat to play and the folks there could not be more accommodating. I highly recommend playing Fantasy Valley (ugh) the next time you are in the Deep Creek area, you will be glad you did...
