Perfect weather

Its good for what it is - but let me set the record straight

Okay, this course is fairly old and mature. The main course doesn't have housing or road noise that gets in the way. However, it is a very short course(even from the back tees) and the greens are basically large and flat. The slope rating on this course should give you an idea of the difficulty. Why others are reviewing this course as a "great challenge" or the "more challenging of the MoCo courses" is odd to me. This place is not anywhere near as challenging as Little Bennett, or even Hampshire Greens, or Northwest golf course. The slope ratings prove that. It is a good place to play for all skill levels as it is forgiving and short. Single digit handicappers will be able to shoot in the 70's and have a chance to put up a really good score. High handicappers will have a good shot of breaking 90. Decent course and conditions, but not very challenging.

All The Spring Rain Paid Off

Course was in very good condition. Very green. The course layout was fair while giving different looks to keep more experienced golfers engaged. Nice equipment/gear in the pro shop too. My carry bag was covered with mildew due to the rain. They had Sun Mountain 2.5 ultra-light carry bags. I checked the price and they were extremely competitive with what was online. So I bought one. I will return.

5:15 to play

Don't waste your money. The greens are scuffed with some type of machine and uncut. Leaves are normal this time of year but Needwood is doing nothing to clear them. Staff said that they get so much play that it's not important to care about the golfers or to offer them any specials. Oh and did I mention 5:15 pace. It was a beautiful day outside today and the company was great. I'm not going back, too many other courses in this area that do care about the course and the golfers.

Nice course.

Made a mistake playing on a holiday. Very slow play. Regular tee times and ladies tournament going on at the same time. Very unorganized. Check before you get a tee time . Other then that course is good shape. Food very good.

Very playable

This was a extremely good course. Playable in the fact that the rough was fair. Hit a low shot so reaching the fairway is difficult for me on long carries. Was not a problem here.
