Nice course; some scenic holes

This is a nice recreational golfer course! Some tough holes, some pretty holes and often a deer will be on the fairway. The pace of play today was great but on busy weekends can be slow. Some golfers stop for a beer during their round and when they come back onto the next hole there can be a logjam of multiple groups.

Extremely overpriced goat path

I lost my ball in the fairway multiple times due to lack of maintenance and poor drainage. Incompetent staff who doesn’t know how to start a lawnmower. This course would be more useful as farmland. You couldn’t pay me to play this again. This was my first and will be mylast time playing here

Review of GolfNow!

Nothing against the golf course.... it was raining cats and dogs, but GolfNow wouldn’t give money back, neither would the course give a rain check. Pretty crappy policy!

Golf cart stuck, had to call a truck to get it out, rained continuously, pretty awful.

Beautiful course!

We love playing on this beautiful course where some holes overlook Paw Paw Lake. Today there were not many people so the pace of play was great. The fairways and greens were in excellent condition. Enjoyed the round so much we’ll be back tomorrow!

Nice track!

Love the risk reward of the driveable par 4’s. Par 3’s are a definite challenge. The only thing I don’t like about this course are the first two holes which are 200 yd par 3’s.

Good Value for the $$

Sporty course with some wide open holes, and some tree. Great for couples. Small challenging greens with water in play on many holes. The bar after the 7th and 12th holes is not to be missed.

Boy was I confused....some signage would be helpful. I have never been lost on the golf course before until I went up all like

Never been lost on a golf course before...until I golfed here! We couldn’t find two of the holes and I’m pretty sure we hit from the wrong tee box and or towards wrong flag at least twice. Other than that the course was beautiful, the people were friendly for the most part. Not a great value for what you get but with the discount or coupon it’s worth the drive

More like a $30 course

The course feels really cramped. The hole layout is very confusing and got turned around a few times even with a few directional signs. The staff wasn't friendly and welcoming at all. They just let slow groups go off the back on a busy Saturday. Wouldn't recommend this course unless they drop the price. You can play much better courses for $46.

FUN TIMES @ PAW PAW

The course was in GREAT shape. Always love golfing here when we visit. The 7th hole bar is a must for a quick break. The course is challenging because you can't just use driver all day long. It makes "Make shots" with different clubs.

Pretty course, nothing fancy!

We’ve played here many times as it is close by and we love seeing the lake on a few holes. We were slowed down today by a pokey group in front of us but the ranger talked to them and they picked up the pace. The course is in nice shape except for low lying areas impacted by recent major rains. Greens were in great condition. Some of the score card distances were inaccurate but all the distance marker stakes were fine. Some people may like to take a break during the round and this course has a great waterfront bar to accommodate that after holes or 7 or 12. I believe the course indicated they had GPS on the carts but only some did- if you want that be sure to ask!

Good Terrain

The course has some interesting holes and despite its lack of length, the par 3s are long and it has a par 5 over 600 yards. It also has a par 5 that can be reached with a good drive a long iron shot. There are some nice hills but the condition of the course is always iffy. There are a lot of blind shots and other holes where you really are not sure what to do off the tee unless you have played there before.

Puts the "country" in country club

Wow, need a AAA "trip tick" to get around this course, front and back nines crisscross through each other, balls flying all over the place, had to ask directions more than once. Let two regulars through and mentioned "sorry, we don't know where we're going", they said "yea, we can tell". All par threes are long, some short par fives and short par fours. Trees, heather and waste areas add to the enjoyment.

Love the Cantina half-way shack on the lake. Beer was cold.
