East Mountain country club is a great course IF you can play for under 20 dollars like i did, however their normal pricing of 39 dollars or more is ludicrous, the course is below average in comparison to course in the area but charges a high price to play, like i said if you get a deal on it, its worth the price, The course is on the easier side as far as lay out goes, and its huge redeeming factor is the 18th hole playing back to the clubhouse, you're on a highly elevated tee box with a chance of driving the green, and if you miss your chance at it you're going to want to tee up another ball! So in summary, if you need somewhere to play, and get this course for 25 or under, play it.

I didn't expect much and the course was in a little better shape than I expected. A lot of very thin spots in the fairway and not a inspiring layout.The greens were in good shape but the fairways were thinking and rather long. Playing in November leaves weren't a problem as its mostly evergreens. Very Friendly Staff, I didn't get to try the food as the kitchen was closed. I'd play here again on a hot deal if the price was right but the rack rates are too high for the conditions.

The course was in fair condition appearing to be due to the drought conditions this year. Greens were good but thick again probably due to the drought. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable. We had an enjoyable day of golf and the price was excellent. We would play at East Mountain again.

I had the pleasure of playing with one of the groundskeepers, who was a great guy. The extreme drought and summer heat has taken somewhat of a toll on the course, but at $15 for 18 holes it is a great bargain. Greens are furry and slow, but pace of play was anything but slow. We finished 18 in under 3 and 1/2 hours, which even included a 15 minute stop at the snack shop which was run by a very cute young lady. Overall good experience and I look to go back in the fall.

My brother and I bought a Hot Deal, so the value for our $ was very solid. Greens were okay, the fairways were dust and dirt. Course plays really short. What really bothered us was the their PGA pro kept talking to us holding up our pace of play and trying to teach us on the course. We just wanted to play in peace and finally after like the 4th time we had to tell him to duck off(We weren't even drinking either). If you can play 18 holes with a cart for 15$ you play this course any other amount no chance would i recommend this place.

I an a little bias about this Course because this is where I learned to play Golf . It is a little bit of a Santuary for me because if I'm having problems with my swing I just come here by myself and with Gods help I always seem to fix it . It can be a little challenging but it will not overwhelm you . The beginner to the advanced Player will have fun on this Course . In the late Fall a lot of Couses in this area are covered with leaves but not this one . As it is pretty open and have Pine Trees . Love it !

East Mountain is looking good in mid-October. Tee boxes green and lush, the fairways grown in and green. Greens nice--soft and not rolling fast but your approach will stick. A nice bonus of a round here is the view--no homes abut the course and one gets different views of the hills to the east. Family-run, friendly, very quiet mid-afternoon on a Wed. Very relaxing, affordable round of golf.

Booked T time w/golfnow.com, got awesome "HOT DEAL" 18w/cart $14 incl. G-now fee "Nice". E. Mt. CC is convenient, fun, affordable golf for the beginner and advanced alike. Course conditions however have room for improvement. A couple areas in distress, broken ball washers w/ foul water "not nice". The par 4&5 layout rewards the golfer who can shape (draw/fade) shots w/ the driver (exactly what I'm working on). Pace of play OK, no leauge in play. Located next to a regional airport an occasional aircraft may buzz the course. E. Mt has a sports bar & banquet space for larger parties, at fun affordable prices I recommend E. Mt.

I found a $13 Hot Deal ($16 with GolfNow's fees) so it was easily worth the money. The greens were soft and slow but were consistent. There's crab grass sprouting up on random greens and tee boxes but it's rare. The course is a million times better than Shaker but prob just under Tekoa. It's a fun and easy course to play, I just wouldn't pay full price for it.

This course is not worth playing. Greens were rolling about a 3 on the stimp (being generous with that estimate) and were not in good condition. Staff was friendly and greens fees were cheap but overall, the conditions of the course were not good.

on one of the par 3's my friend hit a pure wedge right onto the "green". instead of the thud sound he was rewarded with a splash... sweet!

course has a fun design, nonconformist tee box color setup, many of the greens and fairways require some attention, i enjoyed the fact that i wasn't bothered by anyone behind me or in front of me so i could play at my own pace.

many people were walking that day so it seems to be a good course if you like to walk or are trying to save some cash maybe try this place out.

Played the course on 7/30/13, more than half the greens were just about solid dirt with 2 temporary greens (in July? Really?).

They were so generous that they knocked off $10 and charged us $28.75. Wasn't worth a dollar to play!!

If and when you do, make sure you play from the tips, VERY short golf course.
