Need a leaf blower

The course was very wet from the recent heavy rain so, it was cart path only which slowed up play. Then there are the leaves! I lost 5 balls because I couldn't find them 3 feet off the fairway. They really need to blow off the leaves.

Ranger

The ranger screamed at myself and my golf partner stating it was cart path only, I had explained I am new to golf and I had seen other golfers off the cart path and he said well that’s going to change since I am here, when I had brought the issue up to the young punk working the counter he stated too bad he was just doing his job. I will never golf there again even if it was free, we didn’t even finish the last two holes, do to the attitude of the ranger!

Failed reservation

The course probably won't get the reservation from golf now. The foursome scheduled before were also missed. The front nine was loaded up with slow foursomes and I started off the back nine. The course also did give me the price I locked in from golf now.

Leave your driver in the bag

Pros:
The course is pretty.
Course conditions are improving.
Greens are gettable and fun to putt.

Cons:
Trees are overgrown, narrowing fairways considerably.
Tee boxes are in rough shape; hard to find a level spot.
Starter was AWOL, and there was no ranger to move the pace along.

Not worth the money

First and foremost this is a challenging course. What I don’t like is they have a lot of unkempt areas of play and for the price of $35(non-resident??) I hoped that it would be in better condition from previous years. And the fact that I can get a cheaper rate through GN is just downright ridiculous!! I still don’t understand why non-residents pay more. Are we possibly doing more damage to the course than residents? I don’t think so. Well Hilltop that’s the last dime you’ll get from me. Too many courses within driving distance that are a better value! Rouge Park for instance.

Gave it one star just because it’s a golf course

Gave it one star just because it’s a golf course. A very unkempt course grass wasn’t cut muddy soggy not manicured at all looks like it was ready to close for good . Wasn’t even worth the cheap price we paid to golf here.
