Did not meet expectations
This course has a very fine reputation. It is known for being one of the nicest public courses on the cape. I had very high hopes that were quickly brought crashing down to earth. The conditions were average to below average, tee boxes were in very rough shape and greens were slow and covered in ball marks that looked like they hadn’t been fixed all year. A lot of burnt out patches in the fairways and rough. The pace was atrocious. We quit after over 4 hours on the 16th tee. The front 9 the starter allowed a member who was supposed to play with us join the group in front. We didn’t mind but they were ridiculously slow. They were older gentlemen but did not allow us, a twosome in a cart, play through their foursome who were walking. The starter or the ranger should have had them pick it up or let us go through. There were at least 4 holes between them and the group in front of them yet no word from any of the staff. The staff were friendly and the restaurant seemed nice. I have played many of the public courses on the cape in the last few weeks and this is by far my least favorite. For almost a $100 round you can get better value at the municipal courses in neighboring Dennis.
Excellent Public Cape Course
The course was in excellent shape, with soft greens from recent rain. Not super tough but tree lined fairways will challenge any wayward drive. Even from the tips, the course is not super long. Pace could have been quicker but still an overall great experience and would highly recommend.
Great food in the restaurant as well. Check this course out if you're looking to play on the Cape.
Best Public Course on Cape!
Best public golf course on Cape, hands down. They host many state championships, course is always in excellent shape. The biggest change in the last few years is the friendly staff. The starter was a retired golf course superintendent. The ranger (very personable and friendly) made us laugh every time we saw him with a joke or comment. The new restaurant (Hot Stove) is as good as it gets. Must play!
Nice course for the Cape
Very nice, challenging course especially for a public course on the Cape. Can be pretty tough from the back tees too, but for most golfers the white tees are more than sufficient and challenging. Quirky 18th hole with a double dog leg though. Driving range is first rate with great practice facilities. Clubhouse and pub are pretty good too and you don't have to be a golfer to have a decent lunch there either, very nice overall. Course is always in pretty nice shape too.
Best Value on Cape Cod
Cranberry Valley is a hidden gem! The course is very challenging from the tips but has tees for all skill levels. Course conditioning is excellent for a public course. Pace of play is generally decent, although on very crowded summer days it can be slow. The value is outstanding. There's a first-rate driving range, a terrific short-game practice area with two greens and bunkers, and a convenient putting green. The Bar and Grill (in season) offers genuinely interesting food at a very reasonable price. Cranberry valley is a must-play.
