18 holes of fun

Fairways were in great shape and generous. It helps if you play with a member. Tee boxes were in very good shape. Greens in very good shape, very large, smoothe and true. If you are in the area play Finley. You wont be disappointed. A fun course to play. Can't wait to get back again.

Nice layout but greens were in poor shape and extremely slow.. expect much more for $88. Also ranger told us to speed up on 15 which was no big deal, but came back on 16 to tell us again! Really?1 hole and another warning? Good way to ruin a round and lose a customer. I expect much better, especially for that kind of money.

Amazing course!

Excellent course. Beautiful clubhouse and course. The greens are true and staff is incredibly friendly. Had a guy driving around checking pace of play and ensuring nobody got backed up. Will definitely be back.
