Very friendly personal people in the club house

Pace of play was great, the 2 som played in less than 4 hours starting at 11:00 am on a Saturday

Coarse was in nice shape

Greens a little slower than normal

A few blind shots off the tee box with 150 yard must carry

This was my 5th time playing the course this year. I enjoy it and it is a good value for the money. The guy that checked us in was not friendly at all. He treated us like we were just some guys off the street and was not kind when I told him the deal we got online. Was not happy with him or his attitude, but we had a great time. It rained on the 8th hole and we finished 9, and then the guy (different from guy before) gave us a rain check for the other 9 we didn't get to play. All in all, it was a great deal at a great course. I just wish the staff would have been friendlier.

Atikwa is a fine golf course. They don't get the credit they deserve as golf courses go in the Alexandria Lakes area. There are plenty of fine courses around so they probably get a little put on the back burner. The holes are fun, plenty challenging, with a combination of tough holes and risk/reward holes. Would be nice to have a beverage cart on the course on those hot summer days. Every vacation I go to a resort in Alex and every year Atikwa is a must play!

Course was too penal....rolling, canted fairways such that balls hit into the middle of the fairway run to the edge and disappear into long, unruly grass. 3-4 long carries over a no man's land. Just too demanding...

My family rents a lakeside cabin every year in Villard for a week. I get to play twice during that week. I usually have played at other area courses but remembered about Atikwa for this trip. This course was really fun and excellent. My only complaints are the greens are super slow. I was murdering putts and they still would not make it to the hole. Also, the only bunker I was in was rock hard and could use some love from maintenance. The layout was fun with a couple quirky holes and some crazy forced carries on 6,7,15 and 16. The one on 16 is just brutal from the tips.

A fun course to think your way around. I would say it's one of the two best layouts in the area with Pezhekee.

Greens were extremely slow, some with multiple levels. Not a close accessible range to hit at before play and irons only on range, come really early if you want to use range as you will have to leave in your car to get to it. No putting green. Not a walking course, lots of distance and bridges through wetland areas between holes. Greens small. Only yardage markers are stakes. Fairly wide open on a lot of tee shots except holes where you need to lay up and must know yardage to trouble or through fairway before you hit, bring range finder. Last two holes odd, short driveable par 4's. Last hole you must hit over tree and a bunker on each side of tree- all in fairway. No mow areas filled with thistles, leave ball in there and save legs, take the penalty stroke. Some good golf holes, i would play again at discount rate, but not full summer rate.

Great large greens, although fuzzy the week of spring opening. Greens wintered perfectly. Wide sloping fairways. Several wetland challenges to get around. Hilly, but walkable. They should invest in electric golf carts to replace old gas ones. Great connecting Arrow Wood Resort is perfect for an indoor or patio meal afterward, or just relax on the course's deck and enjoy a drink with beautiful views of the course and adjoining lakes.
