Great Course

First time I played there. I played the Rail Course to the Quarry Course, a little confusing to go from the 1st hole to the 2nd, could use better signage, but other than that I will go back.

A New Favorite

I played this course for the first time (quarry/rail) and loved it. The course is in great shape with a nice variety of holes and elevation changes. There are a couple of blind shots but that was part of the challenge. With COVID 19 rules allowing only 2-somes, it felt like playing a private country club. I forgot to mention the great scenery.

Great Condition/Value

Got a teatime for 2 On a hot deal for under $30 each. The course was in excellent condition for early November and was truly scenic and lush. Layout was very nice and course played somewhat difficult but fair

Very NIce Experience

Staff was friendly. Course was in excellent shape especially in beginning of November. Fairways, tee boxes and greens all plush and in great shape. Greens especially fast. Got Hot Deal for $29 - worth every penny - even at regular price. Will definitely go back...

Good conditions

Course in great shape for this time of year. Despite recent rain there were very little wet areas. Greens recently aerated and fast. Only complaints are bunkers need better sand and cart paths are deteriorating.

Course is back in great shape

Had played this course before and it was not in great shape. They have done a great changing that around. There are the usual wet holes but that is expected due to the location and not enough sun exposures. All in all it was great

A Friendly Place

Everything you could want in a public course and all the people were so nice and helpful. I will definitely return. Hope they can blow the leaves away when they start falling. Some very beautiful views.

Great Day in The Country

This is one of the most beautiful areas in the Northeast. Having 3 nine hole courses with different "personalities" makes it very interesting to say the least. The staff is very friendly. I always enjoy the round no matter how good or bad I play. The views are great as well. Sorry that I have to wait until April to play again. I just wish they were closer to my home.
