Not a great value today.

Great course and people. Golf was $28 plus $2.00 for golf now and $10:00 for park admittance +$41. Normally when we play there it is $28 + $10 minus $8 refund from course.. Normal total is $30. Cost us additional $11.00 to book through Golfnow. We will wait till club house opens before doing this again.

Good walking course

Nothing fancy but good layout for walking and the cost was reasonable. Even walking we were done in just under 4hrs.

Kensington is always in great shape and even though my round could have been better I've always enjoyed playing here.

Beautiful day

I noticed how quiet the course was, it was because there were no gas carts. Nobody was pushing me or hitting in to me, again, no carts. What a great experience. Sunny day, nice walk. Couldn’t have been better. The way golf should be

Great little Track!

Wonderful layout. Tons of fun!! Shot 77 in the winds from tips at 6625. Greens slower but roll nice. Fun and simple course for most players. Still some tough holes like number 11. If you have never played its a fun course. Generally wide open too with generous room tee to green.

Fun golf

An extremely well maintained public course. Hard fast fairways and difficult green complexes. The only negative would be the lack of a tee box between 5200 and 6300 yards. The green fees are very reasonable.

Pace super slow

Course is nice for the money but no one out here pushing the pace of play. Current starting hole number 4 and 1 hour in already. Planned on playing 18 but I will only play 9 based on this pace

Good Course

This is one of my favorite courses to play in this area. It is very well maintained and has been in great condition every time I've played it. I can't say it's a great value. You probably get what you pay for. In addition to greens fees, you'll have to pay $2 to get into the Metropark if you don't have the annual pass ($10 to get in and then they take $8 off of your greens fees). It has also been busy every time I have played it. The most recent time, I paid $25 for twilight and got in 12 holes before dark.
All in all, I would recommend this course, especially if you can find a deal or play at a time when it is less busy. It is challenging, just because of the length of some of the holes, but is also very playable for most golfers.
