Berkshire Valley Golf Course
if your knocking this course I want to play where you do. the same man did ballyowen but had a better piece of land to work with here. pictures from this course would make great calendar.
only beef, blow up back tee on 2 and move us all up one.

The greens were aerated,but putable, the course was empty which made for a quick and enjoyable round.

Paid $62.50, had to play front 9 twice. No beverage cart, no food. Back nine was under maintainence, had I know that I wouldn't have played the course, very dissatisfied.

Our round was ruined because it was the longest round I've ever played and the most annoying part was that rangers were nowhere to be found. Got paired up with locals who said there was an incident where a slow group got beraded by one of the rangers and they filed a harassment suit. Ever since this incident the rangers are scared to say anything. Pace of play is apparently a serious problem here which is a shame because the course layout and design is awesome, and could rival ballyowen, architects, neshanic in terms of course design.

Great day out with friends
The course was as expected; young in the season. I have played here once before and remember it being in great shape "In" season. There was a frost delay in the A.M., so the 1st tee was backed up. That's where the Grill comes in! HOT Dogs and COLD beer!
Has a good day and look forward to getting back so I can get beat up by those first five holes!!
Great golf holes!

Great course for straight shooter.
Course only opened a couple of days ago but considering the winter we had, was in great shape. One downside was the tremendous amount of geese droppings all around the course. Except to lose a lot of balls if you can't drive straight off the tees. Some fairways are narrow and out of bounds are steep. Actually a very beautiful and fun course to play but wouldn't recommend to beginners or below average golfers. Ability to overcome hazards such as water, traps, and gullies is what makes this one of the best public courses around this area.

Great experience first time,, had issue with reservation second time
I loved the entire experience the first time I went with a client on October 17. Conditions, personnel, course, views, etc.
I then on the 25th booked a threesome for the 28th. then the fun began. I had three people set for an 11:30 tee time, 12 hours later I tried to add a fourth and they sold that position. I never encountered this situation before at other courses. And neither has anyone else I know. So I cancelled the threesome and went somewhere else. I don't think it makes sense to book singles 3 days in advance in a foursome. But you run it your way. next time, I'll book a foursome and then cancel 24 hours in advance.
One more thing. I don't like the configuration where you have to drive a long distance from the 9th hole to the club house for refreshments and back to the 10th hole. It was clear that during summer you have a picnic area, but what about us cooler weather players. We like refreshments too.
