The Mattawang Golf Club of today is very true to its original layout. As was typical of course design for private clubs in the 1950’s and early 60’s, the idea was to create a challenging venue, in a natural setting, with a premium placed on shot-making skills.

The course plays to 6805 yards from the back tees, so it has plenty of length. Although often appearing wide and open, the fairways are actually quite tight and golfers quickly discover that the trees which line many of the fairways have been thoughtfully placed to penalize errant shots.

Typical of the design philosophy of the era, most of the greens are small and protected by sand traps. They have rightfully gained a reputation over the past few years as being among the best maintained putting surfaces in the state. Golfers must hit both their tee and approach shots accurately or pay the price.

Starter management needed Overall, we enjoyed our day at Mattawang...and that factors in some snow/ice on the fairways and greens. The ice made conditions challenging but the lack of an experienced starter made the round a bit stressful. As we made our turn onto the 10th a foursome was walking up to our green from the clubhouse. I had no idea if the starter sent them over to start off the 10th, so we walked into the tee box to continue through with our round. The newly arrived foursome was crowding up behind us, in the back of the tee box and talking the entire time we were driving. I don't know whether or not it was ignorance or calculated rudeness/intimidation but it did put a bit of a damper on an otherwise nice day. When we returned to the clubhouse after our round, the foursome behind us tried to cut into the queue going off on the first hole (which was already three foursomes). An argument broke out about protocol, it was unclear if that foursome was even directed by the starter to start on the 10th, and as we walked away it was becoming quite ugly. The whole situation could have been handled much better if a starter had stepped up and taken control of the situation. That, after all, is part of their job. December 2, 2014
The course is ok but not that day The course was unplayable early due to leftover snow on the grounds. This is an average to good course under normal conditions. December 1, 2014
wonderful day Great weather on Veterans day brought out lots of people waits were not too bad. Staff was very friendly snd course was in excellent condition November 18, 2014
Great course to play Course was in pretty good condition. Speed of play was great. November 7, 2014
Painfully slow Have played here many times before without issue. Apparently there was a frost which delayed our tee time, which I find hard to believe due to temperatures and wind speeds the previous night. That not withstanding, it took nearly 3 hours to play 9 holes and that was quite enough for us. We left without completing the round. October 26, 2014
Nice greens, but the course, facilities, and staff are generally poor. The greens were in good shape but that's the limit of my positive feedback. I am an avid golfer but this is my first review of golf now. From the beginning - the range mats are green astro-turf over wood...I hit the ball clean and I was still concerned about damaging clubs. Most, if not all, of the tee boxes are not level. The game is challenging enough without teeing it up from an uphill, downhill, or sidehill lie. The fairways were average. They space the tee times at 7-8 minutes and have an overly energetic, borderline rude, ranger drive around and harass players! Talk about a traffic jam on the course. Before teeing off near 1200, we attempted to grab a hotdog and beer. No prepared food and no beer - was told it'd take 10-15 min for a hot-dog and they had no liquor license. What kind of golf course doesn't have hot-dogs and beer ready at 1200 on a busy, beautiful Sunday?? Opted for a turkey sandwich - it was made with low-quality lunch meat on a stale burger bun which crumbled when I picked it up! There's no beverage or food service on the course either so pack your own lunch, snacks, and beverages should you want to waste $50 on playing this course. Even the bathrooms in the clubhouse were dirty and unkept. This course and facilities need a complete overhaul before we'd ever consider returning. Safe to say that is unlikely! October 13, 2014
Great value Great value for this course. The course is very well maintained and staff is great. Wide fairways and beautiful slopes but still a moderate level of difficulty. Really excellent course, especially for the money. October 11, 2014
Fantastic!!! Love, love, love this course. Can't wait to play it again, and again. I'll be back several more times for sure. October 3, 2014
