Beautiful, scenic course with lots of rolling hills. Fairways, greens and tees were in great shape. Rough was not as overly long as a previous reviewer described it, but it was thick (how can you tell a place not to grow their grass so thick?) and there were a couple areas where the clippings were left laying there, but not a big deal. Biggest complaint I have is the lack of yardage markers. Sprinkler heads not marked and even the basic 150 and 100 yard markers were hard to see sometimes. Overall, in an age of some overpriced golf, this is a great course for not a lot of $$$.

Appropriately priced

The course is not bad but in an area with a ton of great courses it’s tough to recommend this one. I give high marks for effort as there are multiple reviews citing how much it’s improved over the years. But for me...I can’t recommend it. The greens and bunkers are nice. The fairways are just short of ok. The big issue is the rough. It’s generally unplayable. Too many bare spots and grass clippings. The ride on the carts is bumpy as can be. It’s a nice layout with lots of potential. Nice enough driving range and putting green and is pleasant enough. But I wouldn’t pay over $25 to play it in its current state.

Worried that it was closed!

My friends and I often play on this course, and I was worried that it was closed forever due to renovations and inaccurate google feed. The course changed its name from the Farm to Centennial, and in that change, the course I thought got better! The greens were well kept up and there’s always someone out keeping it up! Staff was friendly and course was clean. Great alternative to Shanty Creek if you’re looking for a better value. Will come back now that we know it’s not closer, but transformed!

Not too shabby for the money. Eager to see what some time and care will turn this course into. This is a fun little course to play with plenty of scoring opportunities.

Should get better

Course was in generally poor condition due to lack of upkeep. New ownership appear to be making substantial capital investment, (ie. updated/new irrigation, better mowing etc...). Greens had some dead areas and the fairways need work. Seeing the manpower and work going on leads me to believe they will get it back in shape soon.

The farm name is appropriate

Rough greens-very slow. The course layout is good Been golfing this course for 5 plus years. It was previously in very rough shape -not well maintained. Two rears ago new owners took over and course is much improved. Greens still need to be sped up. One needs to really hit the putter

Fun

Great course for my family. 2 completely different 9s. Front more like a links course. Back is true "up north". Great staff. Greens could use some work. Overall, I will be back.

Nice layout

Greens and fairways were in great shape but could have been cut lower. Still very playable. Layout is interesting, somewhat challenging with 200 yd par 3s. Staff is very friendly. Definitely worth it.

long grass on fairways

I have played this course many times over the years. The greens used to be quite slow - now they have improved and are actually somewhat fast. The fairway grass is quite long with clover patches. Hitting from it is not necessarily easy. Then when you get into the "first cut", the problem is magnified. They are offering some attractive pricing, especially through Golf Now, so it is worth the trip.

Greens were much better than I expected based on previous reviews I read. They are inconsistent but hold shots. Nice layout with some challenging holes. Played late morning and speed of play was great! Friendly staff and reasonably priced. Worth the trip.
