Pumpkin Ridge Golf Club - Ghost Creek Course
challenging as usual
I had the chance to play this course, a once a year special occasion for me, yesterday. The weather worked out quite well inspite of a threat of rain earlier in the day. Greens, fairways and tees were in awesome shape. Rough was deep but playable. Overall a great day and at the $55.50(50% off) thru this site it was an outstanding value.

A Great Golf Experience
If you are in the area, play this course. Great design, good conditions and very friendly staff. Warning: this is a tough course. Several holes have approach shots where if you are a little off line you're looking at a double for sure. But if the weather is okay you'll enjoy a great day of golf.

Excellent Track !
From start to finish, this is a great golf experience. The Starter was a good fellow, sorry don't remember the name. He loaned his pull cart (all the course's pull carts were out) to one of the guys we were paired up with who's own pull cart had a flat tire. The course: fairways are generous enough, you can get a little crooked but don't get wild or the aforementioned rough will cost you strokes. The greens accepted well spun shots but were firm enough and rolled fast & true. There is not a scruffy patch of dirt anywhere on this course, it is in prime condition. The layout was interesting and memorable. And no more cart path only restriction. This is a walkable course, we had 36 to play that day so glad our rate included cart. So weekend play for under $100, jump on it and you won't be disappointed..they can ask $140 and get it. The new clubhouse appears near completion and will enhance the whole experience. This track lives up to it's championship heritage. Certainly will be more in the future. Thanks !

The course showed no signs of the recent aerating. IN GREAT SHAPE. Got a good deal. We are looking at the $99 card for 55 and older. Seems like a good deal. A long course, got on most par 4 greens in three, so lots of par chances. Long par threes, on in two. Don't let the length scare you off. Some construction in the pro shop building, look as if the new pro shop will be top notch. If you end much past 5 PM good chance the grill will be closed, we just made it in time to get a drink and dinner. Nice beverage cart service. You will enjoy this course.

Great golf course.
The green were still healing from aeration but was still a great time. The rough around this course is no joke. Stay on the fairway haha. Great hole lay out as well

Pumpkin Ridge Punched
end of May - great weather - course had chemicals applied - all greens just punched and slow - wait will at least mid June if you want excellent conditions - $40 with cart made round acceptable - but certainly a disappointment compared to past outings

Check first on course conditions before playing!
My wife and I spent $180 for what we thought was going to be a great golf experience at Pumpkin Ridge, but instead turned out to be a disappointment. The fairways and greens had been plugged and sanded. We understand and appreciate that this process is necessary to getting the course ready for great summer play. We would have appreciated a "warning" type notice prior to submitting payment. We love playing Pumpkin, but when your ball is always covered with sand and putting on the greens is about "bang" it out and pick up, then it is no longer golf.

Hope to come back soon.
First time playing here. Very nice course, with a very walkable layout. This course costs much more $ than average. We had a deal that included a cart, but carts must stay on path only…I'd walk next time. Tee to greens in very nice condition, though quite lush with thick rough... Very well maintained. Cool temps, showers off and on made it a soggy day, and some breezy holes added to our challenges. The slow group ahead had us waiting on almost every hole, should play easily in under 4 hours... but it was still a fun round at a very good course. Will definitely be back..
