Old Greenwood Golf Course
If I could give 6 stars, I would.
Played the course with a group of friends and had a fantastic time. The staff was great, very friendly and helpful. The facilities are first rate, well stocked pro shop with an incredible seating area above the 18th green to have a drink after your round.
Old Greenwood is not cheap to play, but worth the money. The practice facility is fantastic, with separate putting and chipping greens. The fairways were lush, and the greens fast and difficult.
If you spray the ball, stay away. The rough isn't difficult, but if you stray off the rough you are in the woods and impossible ground cover. There is water on the course that comes into play.
Be prepared to hit the ball much further then you do at lower altitude! I was a club and a half longer then usual which takes some time getting used to!
The only reason I would give Old Greenwood 4 Stars instead of 5 is the pace of play, the first 5 holes were very slow. This may have to do with people searching for lost golf balls, but also from the forward tee's the par 5's are reachable in two.
A must play!
