To the staff of Shaker Farms Country Club:

I'm busting at the seams with appreciation and gratitude. Yesterday I was the administrator of a golf tournament at Shaker Farms Country Club. The event was a total success primarily because of the commitment to detail that the entire staff of Shaker Farms had to EVERY aspect of the tournament. From Rocky personally escorting the arriving participants to the club house, to Don and Bob directing players and answering questions, to the 'take charge' pro Eric Nelson who directed the entire format, to Ronnie who works so hard and diligently to maintain the highest quality of course maintenance, to chef Angel who can compete with Bobby Flay any day when it comes to food preparation and cuisine, and of course the owner of 'MY CLUB' Nancy who has truly, through the efforts of her hand chosen staff, made Shaker Farms Country Club the epitome of how golf courses should be run.

I implore any 'duffer' out there to come and experience the beauty, professionalism, and friendliness that the club provides. I've played many area golf courses and 'the Shake' offers natural beauty which is second to none!

Again, thank you Shaker Farms for making our day wonderful. Those who played have raved about the condition of the course and the outright surrounding beauty. You will see many of them again soon, I'm sure!

SO PROUD TO CALL SHAKER FARMS COUNTRY CLUB 'MY CLUB'!

If anyone gives the conditions of this course positive reviews, this is the only place you've ever golfed. There is no such thing as fairways here, the grass is 3 inches high everywhere. The greens are mainly a sand trap, but where they do have grass, you might as well putt through the rough. For them to say this course is worth $56 on a regular day is a joke. Wouldn't play here again if they gave me a free membership. Hate to trash a course like this but if they are trying to convince people it's ever worth $56, come on...

Seemed as if the course hadn't had a drop of water on it in weeks...it's part dirt, part grass. Hold on to your hat while driving the rodeo cart path...and check to make sure you have a cart with brakes before plunging down the hills.

I played here back in 2004 and the conditions were very good. Decided to try it again, and was extremely disappointed. Cart had NO brakes. The front 9 was in decent condition, certainly not great, but the back 9 was an absolute mess. One green literally had a sandpit in the middle of it. The staff seemed cool, and the young lady with the beverage cart was extremely friendly, kept coming back and checking on us every couple of holes, and was extremely attentive.

PROS- Large course, with a forgiving front 9. Staff was very nice. Love the deep woods location.

CONS- Horrible greens on the back 9. Extremely narrow fairways on some of the back 9, literally 30 feet on one- not good for a novice golfer. Carts were horible and old.

I had heard great reviews in the past. After playing, I wouldn't golf here for free. The lack of finished cart paths. The fact that you can not distinguish the tee box from the fairway, orr rough for that matter. The overall shape of the course was a disappointment. The rates do not coincide with the condition or quality of this course. My cart died on 16. I walked the rest of the way and was not even offered an apology. No customer service at all from this establishment. Never recommended

This was our first time at Shaker Farms so we did not know what the expect. I was pleasantly surprised with the layout. A nice variation from hole to hole. We played it from the back tees and thought a few holes could have been a little longer. Overall an average length. 16 out of 18 greens were very nice. Two of them had a few issues but overall I'd give the greens a 9. We had a great day at Shaker. Pace of play was perfect and people were very nice. If I may suggest; divot mix with seed on the carts, cut unnecessary trees around greens and tee boxes to let in more light and air and, spray to get rid of clover in the fairways.

This used to be a really nice course. I haven't played here in 10 years. I will never ever consider playing here again. Greens have almost no grass on most. The tee boxes are non existent. You cannot tell where the fairways are or where the rough begins. This course really should just close. It's a shame what has happened.

I love shaker farms cc. I learned how to play golf here and will most likely continue playing here just due to the memories. It's a beautiful course especially in the fall with all the wonderful trees. Sadly, I would have given it a 5 star if the greens were good but most of them are patchy and it's hard to putt well when there is so much grass missing. In addition, more care needs to be taken in order to make the fairways better and less blotchy. It would be nice if the bathrooms didn't smell and was actually cleane. But the course over all is one I like and go to frequently.

I've seen plenty of coarse's but Shaker has the friendliest staff of all. The coarse needs some maintenance but other than that it was a nice pace of play and a nice coarse. I have no regrets coming and paying for my holes. I recommend riding. Take some extra balls also due to water hazards and long grass.

First time playing Shaker Farms and thoroughly enjoyed my round! The older man working in the pro-shop who we checked in with didn't seem too happy that we made reservations online and HE didn't have our information in his tee-time log. That aside, the cart I had was smoother and had more pick-up and go than others I've used in the past. There are some challenging blind tee shots on a couple holes as well as some blind shots to elevated greens. If you stray to far from the fairway, good luck finding your ball! The girl working at the bar/restaurant upstairs was very friendly and the chicken salad sandwich and Shaker chips were delicious! Didn't end up in any bunkers so I can't comment on them. The only repairs needed were on one of the greens as some of the grass had died off, a few run-up areas to the green in the fairway and a few tee-boxes weren't all that flat and had lost quite some grass. Overall the course was a fun challenge and a great value for what you pay for.
