We were leery after reading all the negative reviews but didn’t encounter anything that could have ruined our day. In fact, we replayed for $20 and enjoyed that round just as well. The staff was awesomely friendly and was very concerned that we were having a good time. The layout was the best though. The shaded, sandy cart path wound through the trees and gave me the feeling I was in a wooded Pocono course. There are virtually no straight holes and each posed a challenge of its own.

If you had a bad experience, I recommend you give it another try because I know we will be back.

Nice job guys!!

You can see that this course has the potential to be a very solid, interesting, challenging track.

I understand that new ownership is still investing and it takes time. However, my biggest issue is that carelessness shown in not mowing the grass in fairway rough and especially surrounding the greens. I lost 4-5 balls that we only a few yards off the fairways or green. It doesn't take much to run a lawn mower to acceptable and playable rough height.

I will wait until further improvements are made before playing again. Hopefully they will because it could be a very good public course.

Played here Memorial Day 2018 and it was a great experience. For what it’s worth the course itself is a good course! Nice greens and well maintained. The staff is awful. Started from the pro shop check in to when we stopped in to the bar. Apparently now you have to be a “social member” to eat or drink and you cannot takeout from the bar. Bartender was extremely rude, I’d be surprised if she made tips. Again course is great but with the staff and amenities this is my last time playing here.

I have played this course maybe 20 times in the past 3 years, however this is the last time I will go. The course has changed ownership, and changing many once-great things about the course to very poor. For example, the rate of play was horrible. There was no ranger to be found, and no starter. After you checked in, it was a free-for-all. After the 5+ hour round , I tried to go to the resturant for a beer and a burger (they used to have great food there) but I was told that only social members could drink there. Unreal. Would never come back. Its a shame because I loved playin that course, and I am a local so its near to my heart.

Well another course has changed hands and this one had just switched ownership today. That being said some normal disturbances happen which are to be expected.

For having so much rain, the course was relatively drained due to the sandy nature of the area. This meant no fairway streams.

When we finished we went to the 19th hole and had some refreshments and food. Both were enjoyable.

A good round for the money. Definitely will return.

Driving up you think that this course would be in bad shape. However, after the range, which is an all grass tee area I was pleasantly surprised. The course is predominantly flat with some water challenges. The scorecard gives an accurate idea of how the hole is laid out. I would play here again. My only complaint/suggestion would that he staff in the pro shop could be friendly. The man at the register acted as if I was inconveniencing him.

This course is fun and generally a good deal. I recently played this course on a Hot Deal for a reasonable greens fee for a moderate course.

When I arrived, I was told that the course had been recently aerated and that the back 9 was closed. I was allowed to play the front 9 twice. The front 9 had also been aerated recently. The greens were bumpy and barely playable. None of this was disclosed in the Golf Now app. Courses should disclose when their discounted 'Hot Deals' are a function of current substandard course conditions. Golfers have a lot of options. Occasionally, discounted prices in exchange for rustic conditions are appropriate Unusual course conditions should not be disclosed after arrival at the course when fees have already been payed.

The Links is worth playing under average conditions. I recommend that you call before you commit to a transaction for this course on the Golf Now app.

Although the back nine was closed in the morning we enjoyed the conditions of the front nine. When we left at 3 pm the front nine was closed. Thinking we should have been able to play the whole course. We’ll catch the back nine next time. Definitely worth another trip. Corse was well kept

I got a great hot deal $15 for a round of golf in winter so no brainer, I have played this course before and gotta say the welcome I got was less than when I paid full price, think they should be grateful anybody plays less than 40 degrees. It was very quiet and I did not have to wait at any holes so that was a bonus. The bad was there were no Tee box markers at all guess you just decide where you want to hit, which is great except if you don't have a range finder then have no idea how far hole is, which brings us to the holes, there were 2 of them at every hole, one with flag in and another unfilled in hole. I guess you could play either one, but I played the one with flag and the other hole got in the way several times. There was not one rake to be found on whole golf course, which saved me time raking, but had to hit out of footprints. I hope they just gave up for winter and going to revamp for spring as it is a decent course and not crowded, but won't pay full price if going to be the same as today.

Ok, booked my round arrived and unload my car. Walked in to the Links and the guy told me that there no carts and I stated that I just pass the carts in the parking lots so he said they were there for previous booking. Will I booked but it didn’t seem to matter. In my place of business if one of my employees treated a paying customer that way I would fire him immediately.

The course only has so many golf carts. On a busy day the course has to make sure it distributes carts to the earlier tee times first. I'm going to assume the carts that were in the parking lot were for people that had a tee time before you.

The Links Golf Club started you out with shorter manageable holes that made you stop and think how to play the hole. As it turned out, it was just a warm up to a very challenging back nine. The course is tight and narrow and extremely challenging on windy days

The course was in pretty good shape. thank goodness the bar was open, I stopped after nine as my hands were freezing and my gloves were basically useless. A bar patron who didn't know me gave me hand warmers for the back which I played after having a couple of cold ones.Ironically I did the hot deal from golf now! I guess it was worth it , I'm still thawing out. I'll be back soon but I don't know if playing golf will be included in the next visit. Thanks again.
