For $15.00ea with cart - a steal.

I expected this course to be hack but I was pleasantly surprised. The course layout needs to addressed - we started the back nine - at the 18th. we are facing/travelling toward oncoming players - somewhat unsafe situation. The cart paths are something to be desired - definitely needs a resurface. The course itself was not be shabby.

Nice setting and easy to get to

Course was in nice shape, staff was excellent. First time I played this and was surprised no sand traps but still a fun course. The food in the bar/restarting was outstanding, we got the pizza and a burger!

Swindle

I did not play this course but was charged anyway. I fat fingered the selection and Golf Advisor charged me anyway.

Too cramped.

Fern Hill does have a few decent holes; but most of them are too narrow & too lose to each other. Holes are not well defied so tee shot strategy is confusing to most golfets. It has very small greens, but they were in good conditio. Even after a storm, the smart golfer hit to the front of the green & let the ball run up on the green. It is low ost, but serious golfers will it be happy with this layout.

Can definitely get more bang for your buck elsewhere

Staff was friendly, but aside from that the course was rough. Tee boxes were so hard that you could barely get your tee to get in there. Grass was pretty burnt up all over the fairway, which I know it was the summer but I played other courses without this issue. Overall, I would definitely not go back for the price that I paid.

Staff was nice, course is a desert

Larry (starter/grounds keeper) is probably the only reason I didn't give this a 2 star. Pace of play was painful, took 5.5 hours for 18. The tee boxes were rough to even find a spot soft enough to place the tees in. Feel bad anyone that didn't pay the golf now price to play this place because even at $17, I'm not sure I'd play it again.

It was nice

Overall not bad. Challenging with some tight fairways and stepped greens. Lots of water scattered throughout the course. Tee boxes are hard as a rock, might need a hammer to get a tee in.

Great greens

Greens were very well maintained, this course floods a lot so the only suggestion I would have is they should airerate the tee boxes so you can get a tee in the ground, otherwise had a nice round

Nice cozy course

Played this course for 15.00 on Golf now. This is a nice small course that is not very difficult to navigate. Not a lot in the way of water or sand traps. Greens were manageable if not small. Tee boxes were hard making it difficult to place tees in the ground.

I love playing here. Very convenient and prices very well. But the need to crack down on the pace of play. A lot of people playing 2, 3, even 4 balls. Today we had a 4 sum in front playing as many balls as they wished on each shot. Took us almost 3 hours to finish 9 holes
