Pleasant layout with diverse range of holes. Average difficulty with few hazards. Pace of play before mid-June makes a nice pace.

we were visiting and got a decent deal on golfnow. most of course is reasonably level without dramatic holes. very walkable. greens were extremely slow. played as a twosome and moved quickly until #8 when we slowed to a crawl. quit after #13 as our last three holes took over an hour. learned there is a large wednesday group that plays at a snail's pace, even marking 6" putts. might try again on some other day. course wouldn't be worth the non-discounted price.

I enjoyed playing the course. I wish they could improve the tee boxes some of them were very hard to put your tee into the ground for you drive. On the 18 hole make sure you use a white ball. If you go to the right the driving range uses yellow balls and you might not find yours. It was still a good course to play.

Unusual lay out as the course must have had a redesign. Hole markers didn't match hole on score card. End of year so front none had fairways ripped up for irrigation repairs(?).

Would like to play course again in summer months

This course was very enjoyable. Very flat terrain makes it easy to walk. Greens were in good shape but no rakes for the traps this time of year. Course is fair but can bite you if you stray too far off line. Very little water and not too many traps. A good workout on a warm fall day.

I played this course on Saturday, October 29th. The course conditions were excellent. They have really done a nice job with the fairways and the greens. However, the pace of play was shockingly bad. After 4 hours and 15 minutes we had only completed 12 holes. We then arrived on the 13th hole to find two groups waiting to tee off and another group up in the fairway. Knowing that we wouldn't even start the final 6 holes until 4 and a half hours after we had begun, we decided to pack it in. It should never take MORE THAN 6 hours to play a round of golf.

If you're looking for an good course to play on Cape Cod this course is for you. Of the courses I have played on The Cape this one falls right in the middle. It's not great like Olde Barnstable but it's not awful like Sandwich Hollows. The course was in good shape as far as the tees, fairways and greens go but anything off the expensive grass is average at best. The course is fairly wide open and will allow you to make a few mistakes off the tee. If you're in the area and just looking for an easygoing no frills round of golf Falmouth Country Club is for you.

I'll admit, the first 2 holes on the Championship Course is just OK. But once you cross the street for the next 14 holes, the layout/design is fantastic! Loved the course overall and the staff was great. The pace was kind of slow but tolerable. I'll be back!!

My adult son and I played here Tuesday and Wednesday while on vacation. Excellent value for the money. The greens were heavily watered so they were soft and slow but were in excellent condition. The fairways were also excellent. The tee boxes needed some work- they were really small so not much room to move golfers around from day to day but they could be seeded more frequently and watered more. The staff were very friendly. The pace was a bit slow but expected at "resort golf". Still we got through both days in under 4.5 hours...probably not too crowded because we started at 10am and it was 85-90 degrees both days. The back 9 is a bit tougher than the front. We are both 11.5 index and I shot 39 front one day and my son 38 the next. Mid 40s on the back. I will play again!

Falmouth CC is a reasonably easy course without a lot of trouble. Fairways are mostly flat, so the course is an easy walker. The starter was extremely helpful. He took the time to explain the layout in some detail. The greens have red, white and blue flags which always make front, middle and back a lot easier to figure. Falmouth CC also has a good driving range for warmups and you can drive your golf cart right up next to the range. The pace of play for a summer afternoon was surprisingly fast. Even though the course was busy, we finished in under 4 hours.

I have played this course a few times before peak season and thought it was pretty good. I was in Falmouth for the weekend of the 4th, I paid for 18 and a cart and it took 3:20 minutes to get to the 10th hole. Now I understand a course is going to be busy on the 4th in the Cape and I was expecting a 4:45 round at the absolute worst. Not a 6:40, that's unacceptable no matter where you are.<br/> Aside from that, the course is in good shape, not very challenging and pretty flat considering it's a Cape Course.<br/> Greens- Were in good shape, not very fast or true but kept well<br/> Fairways- Aside from the first hole which was muddy/clumpy, all of the other fairways were great

I'm going back this weekend and have an early time and hopefully I can finish the round under 4:30.
