Friendliest staff around

Seriously, this course has exceptional service- bartenders, cart girls, pro shop staff- they are always happy to talk to you and help you, even just have a conversation. I have never had a bad experience with staff here. A little pricey but worth it- beautiful and scenic course that’s usually not too crowded. Love this course and it’s staff, you can’t go wrong going here.

Down The Tubes

Advertised new greens-they are sod! Shaggy, bumpy, sloppy. Raised their rates as well-entire group left without finishing our round. Pace of play was awful, terrible service in grill room, clueless staffing-This used to be a premier golf course that has really gone downhill. I would NEVER play here again. There is an attitude here that they just don't care-They should sell this course to someone who knows what they are doing. Wasted a perfectly beautiful day here.

most of back 9 regular greens were not availble for play

Not informed that the back nine had most of their greens under repair. Par 3's were half regular distance. GPS on par 4's were generally off by 30-40 yards approaching the green vs make shift greens cut ou off the fairway.

Back nine closed

Did not know only front nine open for play. Staff said back nine would open during weekend. So we played front nine twice. We were a twosome and played pretty fast.

This course should not be on GolfNow.com. Never saw anything on that site about the back 9 greens being in really poor shape. Had I
Known this I would have gone somewhere else 3 of my group traveled over an hour to play front 9 was fine. Back 9 was terrible. When we complained the pro shop just smirked at me and said it was posted on the GolfNow web site. I won’t be back. Mike T

Dunham Hills

It is a beautiful old golf course with lots of elevation changes. The front 9 greens were perfect the back 9 greens had no grass and smelled sour. They are having serious issues with the greens on the back.

Greens under repair on the back 9

Dunham Hills is challenging because of the hilly terrain. The front nine was in great condition. The greens on the back nine were under repair, which was disappointing. I still enjoyed the round and the price was right!

Unfortunate Back Greens

This is a great course with fun holes and welcoming staff. Unfortunately, the back greens are nearly unplayable. I read this in a review here and was hoping they weren't that poor, but it's pretty bad- you could almost slip on them as there is not grass. The rest of the course is beautiful and in wonderful condition- I hope the greens can be salvaged by the end of the year as I would like a shot at those holes.

Was a hidden gem

I’ve always referred to this course as the best course around for the money. Unfortunately, I can’t say that anymore as almost all of the greens on the back 9 are gone. I don’t know if it was winter damage or the over abundance of rain this year but they have no grass and it’s like putting on cement. i hope they get them back in the shape and playable..

Greens were dead

There was absolutely zero grass on the back 9 greens. Grass was completely dead and balls were rolling on hard dirt, painted green. The cart girl said that someone mixed the wrong chemicals for the green fertilizer and it killed the grass. Was not informed of this before paying for grass, no discount either.

Ranger and pace of play

My friend and I breezed through the front nine in an 1hr 15 min. Then we caught up to 2 foursomes on the back nine who were mingling with the ranger, THAT stopped us dead in our tracks. On 12 tee box we noticed there was no groups in front of the 2 foursomes, and yet the ranger did nothing to speed up the pace of play... (3hrs 15 min to complete the back nine...)

Great Course Trouble With Greens

Dunham Hills is one of my favourite places to play golf. The greens at Dunham are usually extremely quick and roll really well. The adage "do not hit it past the pin" applies to Dunham 100%. Unfortunately it seems the greens at Dunham have been severely impacted whether by the weather or some other factor I am not sure but they simply are not in good shape and it appeared that it may be some time before they are back to Dunham's norm which is terrific.

Double Bogie

Played here last year, much better experience. Back nine greens are totally fried, unplayable. Golf course poorly marked, have to seek out overgrown sprinkler heads with hard to read yardage tags. First three or four holes are shooting gallery, bring a helmet. Grill room dysfunctional, offered greasy hot dogs and day old sandwiches. Was told they don't offer food if there is a wedding that day? Priority here is pushing overpriced drinks and beers. Way out of line with surrounding courses. This course is not worth $49.00 by any stretch of the imagination.
