I grabbed this deal on GN with the headline reading 18 Holes /cart. Cart is NOT included. According to the staff, they recently updated the contract with GN and the website has not updated the correct information. It’s $72 total. I was paired with another threesome who ran into the same issue. As did the group behind us.

As for the course, it’s in pretty good shape. Greens we’re fast and true, fairways were cut nicely, rough was appropriately punishing. Long enough for the big hitters and scoring chances for those who keep the ball in front of them.

Pace of play was deathly slow. It’s a semi-private course where the entitled members feel this is Augusta and they should be treated as such. Some of the staff tries to be very accommodating and some make you feel like you’re bothering them.

Overall, the course is definitely worth playing. Once.

Found a tee time on GolfNow for a public slot at a normally private course. Very friendly staff and a great rate ($50) for a Sunday morning tee time in June. For comparison, I paid $69 last week to play a public course on Cape Cod.

Greens were punchy but a friend told me afterwords that Halifax last season had the nicest greens on South Shore, so I’m guessing they were recently aerated.

One note: I forgot cash and the cart girl didn’t take cards (still waiting for courses to gets some Squares and start letting us debit beers and snacks), plus the snack shack at the turn was closed and the clubhouse was not convenient to the 10th tee. Made for a hungry back nine.

Booked a somewhat last minute tee time at Halifax to avoid the heavy rains further south. I really liked the course and the staff was super friendly...especially since it's a private course that seems to have just started opening a few tee times to the public.

The course has a good layout that's challenging but you can miss in certain spots and not get killed by it. The greens were awesome. Definitely want to go back...wish I lived closer and I'd probably look into joining! I'm pushing my friend who lives down the street to get to work on that.

I'm from the south and this was my first time playing up north. I was amazed by how great the fairway and greens were. I didn't love the layout of the course but it was okay. Amenities were not much but the golf course as really good. I cannot imagine anybody not enjoying this course.

We had the opportunity to play this course literally by ourselves. The date we chose to play the course happened to be during tropical storm Jose and there was no one else on the golf course. Other than the beauty of having a three hour round we also really enjoyed the layout of the course and the condition. With some slight elevation changes, tree-lined fairways and tricky rough around the greens this course made for a great challenge. If you hurry, you might be able to play this course as they have some rounds on golf now at this time. I spoke to the pro and the reason they're putting some teetimes on golf now is to increase exposure and possibly increase membership. He said the promotion is actually working and it's brought in some new members. As for the course, I really enjoyed the fairway which were in great shape, the greens were average speed and the long back nine made for a true challenge of golf. The course plays almost 6500 yards from the whites and 3300+ of that is on the back. Get out and play this course while you still can

I had only played here during a charity event. Finally got out to play a real round. This is a simple challenging trouble in front of you golf course. The greens are fast and the average approach shot is long if you are not a bomber. Full range, chipping and putting available. Dog leg lefts and rights. It's very enjoyable and was not busy at all on a Thursday morning. The only negative is the finishing hole. It's just long and straight no elevation or bend.

This course is a well maintain course, on the long side from the white tees, which I found very enjoyable to play. Greens were surprisingly fast , considering we had a heavy rain come thru, would definitely play this again. Staff was very cordial, and accommodating .pro was very nice .

We took a deal off Golf now to walk Halifax CC on a Sunday Am. Would have paid full price. This club is A County Club atmosphere at its best. Members, staff and course all first rate. We played w two members who were so friendly and helpful in playing the course The course is in tremendous shape especially the greens. Fast and true. If you don't pay attention you can three putt from 10 feet. Back nine has many memorable holes. 10,11 are fantastic. Course is long so bring ur game. Definitely a must play
