We have enjoyed the course, the friendly staff and the hot dogs and delicious hamburger grill. The price is very reasonable.

The course is very crowded meaning all the holes are on top of one another. Greens were OK. EVERYTHING else was terrible. The grass wasnt mowed the rough was weeds. Some holes didnt even have a “fairway” it looked like you were hitting into a field. The tee boxes were uneven and VERY beat up. Garbage cans on the course were overflowing with trash laying around and i played at 7am on a holiday when ALOT of people golf. Disgusted and can not believe i paid $65 for this dog track. Never Again and i would NEVER reccomend this course to anyone.

Nice course, in good shape. Not long, but does require accurate shots to score well. Many doglegs and relatively small greens.

Was looking for a cheap round on Thursday night and stumbled upon Knoll Hills East. Booked a tee time for Friday 12:12 and finished at about 3:00. For a municipal course, I'd say the condition of the course was better than what I was expecting. Very tight course though (especially the front 9) but take some club speed off and you'll be alright. 9th hole elevation to green is a doozy. Enjoy!

Oh and it was the first day the driving range was open... really really nice in a pretty secluded area though. I would suggest having golf carts in the parking lot so people can drive them over (since you can't drive on the road) and also a water jug. The sun was right on us on a 90+ degree day and there is no where to hide. Great addition otherwise though!

Mechanical tees so you don't have to worry about bringing your own and hoping if they'll stick into the matt or not.

Played here a handful of times. Greens were in fantastic shape. Definitely consider it one of the best public courses in the area. The staff is incredibly friendly and always make you feel welcomed. Recommended.

We went on Saturday to play a round - the Marshall was forcing us to pick up the pace when we were clearly waiting for the people ahead of us within striking distance, so much so we shot and came within inches of the group ahead of us. This went on for about 6 holes and then he proceeded to do the same to the group ahead of us.. The course was clearly overbooked and none of our faults. The staff inside though was great and really nice and I may come back because of them.

There is nothing spectacular about Knoll East, but nothing very wrong, either. The greens are in good condition and deceptively fast. The fairways are a little long, but mowed and there are some problems with bare spots in the rough. The OB on hole #5 is strange because it makes it a very tight hole. On the other hand, my son blew it over the corner and had a sand wedge into the green. But he carried it 320 yards. All in all, a nice day of golf.

Just another older muni. short, a little tight, many bare and/or thin spots - in serious need of more irrigation in many areas. Only has drinking water on 1 hole - it was rough on a hot day.
