Close and fun
I have played Afton a few times now and I keep coming back for the challenge and the friendly staff. It has lots of blind shots and elevation changes which make it a challenge for any one. The course was in good shape and there is lots of scenic views.
Great front nine and funky back
Please with the first nine. Great condition on fairway and greens. Back nine is average condition.
Beautiful Fall Colors and Course
We enjoyed playing the open front 9 and the picturesque back nine - like two different experiences but both great!
Great course for the money
I'm a newer golfer and have a very busy life. this course is quiet to relax and gives you a good challenge of needing to have control of your shot and picking the right club especially on the back 9 where the greens can be surrounded by drop offs that if your off by a little your needing to take a drop. I'd recommend for anyone who's looking for a good course at an affordable price.
Soccer or golf course
This course has forgotten about the golfer. We were five holes in to the round when we were asked to hurry up. Keep in mind we were ahead of pace. A few holes later we had to wait for a group of soccer golfers playing thru our fairway. This course is so poorly set out you have to carry a zerrox copy of notes they hand out to have any idea where to go. Very disappointed in this course. Will not play there again.
The front nine is a lot of back-and-forth golf. Not much trouble and not much to think about - just hit your drives far and have a wedge in on your approach.
A lot of people complain about the back nine, but if you consider it a short course back 9, it's a lot of fun. Lots of tricky shots and great rolling hills.
Long Course, Nice Views, Not your Average Snooty Golf Club
This course is managed by Vail Resort's who own Afton Alps Ski Hill and Training Center in Afton as well as many other much larger Skiing Resorts on Mountains in various states. Keep that in mind when you go to play a course at their ski hill. Its a nice course in my opinion. The Staff is all very friendly and down to earth, prices weren't bad for a round with a cart. The drink wagon made multiple rounds to make sure we were taken care of. The course isn't a super high tier course but it allows for a more laid back game of golf, one that you would bring your friends out to just simply have a good time and not be hassled by the more serious golfers who get angered at the inconvenience of having to wait for people. I like this course because the back 9 are along the tops of the ski-hills that I used to ski on back in the day and the views are magnificent! I will definitely be back for more.
Overall great for the money
This course is great. The front 9 is very friendly. The back 9 is the most challenging, be prepared to lose some balls if you don't hit the right shot. Greens are a bit slow but leaves room for error. Staff is very friendly.
The staff was very friendly and helpful. I found the front nine to be interesting and fun to play, The back nine was horrible. There were a number of blind shots and there was equipment everywhere. The course is not very well marked so we spent time finding the next hole. I would play the front nine again and pass on the back.
Half golf course, half ski slope
The front nine of this course was very nice and I would recommend that to anyone. The back nine was a mess. There was construction equipment all over the place, there was construction going on under the Ski lifts, it was very difficult to find where the next hole was. It was a mess and I would never recommend it to anyone nor will I ever play that back nine again.
We had a good time, nice people in the club house & great weather too.
It was a fun first trip to see the area where I used to ski years ago. We'll be back!
Would NEVER recommend
The pace of play at this course was horrible due to no rangers enforcing any sort of pace. There were multiple holes that were marked 50 yards further than they actually were. On the back nine there was not a silver for hole where I couldn't hear heavy machinery, and the grounds crew did not stop while playing your ball. Overall very disappointed and would not recommend to anyone, ever. Save yourself some time and money and play somewhere else.
This course was almost average. We (2 people) go in a round of 9 holes plus cart for $32 total. It was worth playing for that value but I am so glad that we did not pay full price. There are much nicer courses in the area for equivalent pricing.
Fun course to play, front nine pretty wide open, back nine will require accurate shots as you go through the ski slopes. You will usually see some wildlife on the course.
