Really nice course and in great shape for late in the season. Greens were fast, I can’t imagine how they are peak season. Played Eagle and Hawk course. Both were challenging but fair.

Fun place to play

No matter when I come here to play everything is the same. Great customer service and friendliness from the staff to the good course conditions. Would always recommend this course at anytime.

No on course staff

No ranger was on any course to regulate speed of play. As a result, Course was backed up by 20 minutes starting on the 1st tee (Eagle) even though we teed off 30 minutes early of our starting time do to no shows of other groups ahead of us.
There was also no beer cart on the course. As the regular price for 18 on weekdays is $45, no ranger or beer cart is unheard off.
One last comment. The greens where like concrete. Wedge shots to the greens resulted in balls bouncing back up as if they hit the cart path. Greens being fast due to slope rating is different then putting on a coat of green paint on concrete.

DIVOTS!

Second time playing here and I love this course. Beautiful scenery great layout but still playable. Only reason I wouldn’t rate it higher is due to the divots. Sad that the people playing the course are the only issue here. Regardless of that it is a wonderful course. Challenging but playable at the same time. I shoot low to mid 80s and this course will make me fight to break 90 which makes it fun. Get a hot deal under 30$ and you won’t be disappointed.

Course in great condition

Pace of play was the only issue. Took nearly 5 hours as someone allowed a sixsome 2 groups ahead of us. Weather was perfect and the 3some they matched me with were wonderful people. Greens were fast and true.

Will come back again!

This was a very enjoyable day. The staff is extremely courteous and the course is in great shape. It’s a challenging and fun place with good risk reward. Greens are small and roll true. Really like the layout and individuality of each hole. Have been wanting to play here for a long time and I can’t wait to play it again. Reasonable rates.

Best hot deal

This is my third time playing here, it is challenging enough that I can play here every time. The greens are very fast and undulating, I think will take a few rounds before you you can 2 putts or under. Preferred to play the Eagles, and the Falcons.

Worth driving from Birmingham to play this course.

Very good value, excellent greens and fairways. Not too crowded, so the pace of play is easily under 4 hours. 3 nine holes, Eagle, Falcon and the hawk, each with different layouts and challenges. Best scenery is the Falcon and the highest slope rating is the Eagle. I really don’t mind to play Pine Knob again.

Great time

Great course! Got stuck behind three guys who were oblivious to how bad they were. But other than that loved the course! Played Eagle and Falcon courses. Picture is from first hole on Eagle.
