Good County course

We choose this course so we could use the golf boards that they advertised. Went to the course the night prior to make sure they were available and were told no problem. The next morning we were told everything from they are being used to putting new tires on to not charged. Clearly lies but we had fun anyway.

Like the course, but it's a bit pricey

Decent course that's fun to play,but should be priced at least $10 less per round. I play there because it's convenient for my group to get there.

Course layout is good, lots of doglegs and shots over water. Some holes are challenging.

18th was a swimming pool in certain spots. Expect to go home with wet shoes after a round there.

Terrible!!!

Purposely made an afternoon tee time so that I could get the West course, When I get there they tell me they are only letting people out on the East. After discussing this for a while I relented hoping that the course wouldn't be that bad. The East course sucks! It holds water like a swimming pool, there are ruts in the fairway from people driving their carts on wet ground and most of the greens were terrible. Stick to Somerset County courses. They are much better and competently managed.

Dog Track

I’ve played the west before and always had a great day playing golf .
This is the 1st time I played the East and it was a disaster.
They had no business letting people play on a course that was quite literally a swamp . There are dog tracks in better shape then the front 9 was in !!!

Stay Away

If you’re not a resident, stay away. Ridiculously priced for the way it’s maintained. Tee boxes are “good”. Roughs look like they’re cut once a month. Most holes are open, great to practice your long game.

Stay in the short grass

The crabgrass is brutal. Thick. And darn near impossible to hit from. Other day that it was well paced.

Hackin' at the Rack

Before you come to play here you have to remember that you are playing a PUBLIC course and could be subject to a 5 hour round. Nothing can be done. The rangers are not coming out to hurry people along. Right now, the course is in the best shape since I began playing here 20 years ago.They actually closed the West course down for most of the winter and put up temps for the rest of it to let the course recover from the season which they've never done. They've taken down a bunch of trees to open it up, put actual golf sand in the bunkers, new mats on the range. The greens aren't perfect(remember it's a PUBLIC course) but for the most part, they hold and roll just fine. The West gets the most play but the East while somewhat less challenging is a solid course also.

Go Elsewhere

Tamarack an experiment in how to run a golf course. This is a county course that has never been dealt with properly in the last 20 years. Played Friday after noon around 3 starter left for the day so no since booking a time. One guy was behind the counter who was clueless. The course was soaked with no restrictions so the carts turned it into an ATV track. It’s obvious this has been going on for days. The crabgrass was all over the place and the fairways only fair. Best way to use Tamarack goto the driving range and play elsewhere.

Longest Round Of My Life

Picked this course because its centrally located and I was meeting up with friends that live all over the state. The course itself is not all that bad. Interesting layout, challenging holes, and it's in pretty good condition.

Now the bad. We also picked this course because it had a driving range. Of course it was closed so they could mow it. Would think they could find a less busy time to maintain the driving range than 9:30 in the morning when you have 500 golfers trying to get out and play.

Now the worst part. On Thursdays they have a womans group go out. They must have reserved tre times every week on this day. They slowed the entire course down. They were hitting the ball no more than 25 yards each swing. It looked more like croquet than golf. We hit the turn after 3 hours. The entire round took 5 and half hours to complete. Lesson learned, never again. Stay away from this place on Thursday total disaster.
