Farm Neck is the most over rated course on MV or anywhere else for that matter. They totally over charge and you get zero customer service for the money. The course has some unbelievable views and some amazing holes; water views etc.. But the conditions were not worth the dough and the greens were slow and hairy. But what really makes this a bust is the staff. They treat you like second class citizens. They forget who is paying and how to treat guests. Having played this course for many many years I have witnessed its demise and the staff arrogance increase. Unless your Obama, don't waste your money. ($70.00 was shoulder season after 3:30!)

So Obama may have made Farm Neck popular but this course is really a hidden gem. Pro shop and clubhouse is understated but very clean and welcoming. The layout is awesome. Great mix of holes, doglegs, well placed fairway bunkers, etc. Multiple holes have legit water views and there are multiple ponds that are in play.

Course is not long but the challenge is the wind. It is only 6300 from the blue tees but if the wind gets up that plays more like 6900. Hole 14 might be the best short par 4 in New England. Hole 18 is just what a finishing hole should be. A par 5 that you can reach in two if you challenge the OB.

Staff was friendly but not overly so. Don't expect a "member for the day" experience but we were treated very well by the staff. My only beef was how much OB there was on the course. It didn't effect us since we played everything as a lateral hazard, as the rule should be! But if you were playing a tourney or with a rule stickler the OB could lead to some galacial rounds I would imagine.

Was there for 2 days and for the money I was very disappointed. Rangers were constant even though we were 10 minutes ahead of pace in their yardage book. Waste of money and a weak layout. They can charge what they can charge because of island. Better courses are a short ferry ride away at much better values. As the Raven once said " Never more"

Course is an oasis on the quaint island of Martha's Vineyard. Very scenic, very green with an occasional<br/> sighting of deer. Course offers many challenging holes, with water, slopes and sand traps. Good challenge for an intermediate--advanced golfer.

If you want a challenge and enjoy playing a golf course that has water views, then this is a course for you. Nestled on the Martha's Vineyard, it provides a great mix of holes carved through trees as well as opens up to the wind off the water.
