Hastings Country Club
Drove 35 minutes .... worth it !!
I've said it before and I'll say it again... LOVE older country club layouts. Blind shots and small greens...no previous course knowledge will hurt you, but its much funner the second and third time around. Can be "un-fair" to first timers,but thats what should bring you back. My score score gets better everytime. It sounds like I own the place,but I dont. I dont work there either, but I do really like this course.

Course has a very funky layout... too many blind shots
Never played this course, so thought I'd give it a change based on the price via GolfNow. Owner checked us in and was less than friendly (so off to a bad start before we even got to the first tee). First 2 holes were long but very vanilla. The 3rd hole had a really funky layout with a blind shot to the green.
Course was in pretty nice shape and lots of beatutiful views, but had a really wierd layout with MANY blind shots. I counted 5 "bells" on the course where you had to ring so the group behind you knew it was OK to hit their shots. Very surprised that this was once a Country Club. I'm sure new ownership is utilizing feedback to make improvements in the year's to come. Not likely that my wife & I would come back to this course (much better courses in our area with less drive time).

I love old country club courses !!
Its everything you want in an old country club course. Tons of elevation change, small greens, difficult par 3's and walkable. It's been pretty full every time I've played and if you don't have GPS.... good luck. Blind shots and tricky lay up galore. Great little track. Dont let first two holes fool you.

Very well kept. I used every club in the bag. A lot of very different kind of holes. Every thing from flat to hilly. Greens were fun & challenging. I really liked the course.

Nice little old school course...
Never played this before. Very nice and undulating course with may elevation changes. Greens were fast and in good shape.

Unique old style course, challenging but fair. Well maintained. Lots of character, some hit it and get it and some strategic holes. Did not like having to play with another twosome. They were very nice but we prefer to play by ourselves. Think we should have the choice.

Greens are well maintained but too small
Wouldn't pay full price to play this course, fairways kept too long and no bounce or roll to them and very unfriendly to new players hole descriptions very vague. The layout of the pro shop and restaurant banquet center is a confusing mess and it feels very unsafe to park your cars or the ridiculously sloped parking lot and super close relation to the holes.
