Rated 5 out of 5 by jpishney Now I have new expectations for sand traps!
They sure do love their sand traps and fairway bunkers here! I hate the sand, but mostly because I never practice out of it and usually the sand is hard from past experiences at other courses. This sand felt as nice as the DR beach resort I was at last year! Ok, enough about the sand....the scenic views were awesome! You think they like sand here? Well, they also love trees, hence why it's so challenging. If you think a driver is a bad idea on a hole, then keep it in the bag! You can't just grip it and rip it from every tee box. I hope to go back with a couple of people to play with so I can soak in the course layout more!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mattpin Great course!!
For a public golf course, this is a shotmaking dream. When I played the course was extremely fast which made accuracy that much more important in all aspects. If you want to score low, you have to think ball position. Can't just pull out the driver and hope for the best. #13 is a perfect example, for long hitters, leave the driver in the bag and go with a long iron or hybrid off the tee. I'm sure this is a beautiful course in the fall before the leaves drop. Staff was incredibly friendly. Overall, I was very pleased and will definitely be going back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by napaccount Great Course
Champion Lakes is a great test of golf, although beginners might struggle. It is close to home, so I have been playing there a lot the past 2 years, but it is definitely worth a drive if you aren't close. Great conditions and a tough track - also a great value for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Weaver3367 Very good experience
Have played the course about a dozen times over the years and enjoyed the course each time. This year the grounds are in excellent condition, getting a little hard due to the weather, but very good condition overall. The course is challenging, especially a good tee shot is needed to attack the greens.
Great overall experience for the average golfer up!
Beside that the facility and bar/restaurant are friendly and well stocked with food and drink.
Would highly recommend Champion Lakes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by golfball129 Excellent course
It is one of the finest public courses in the tri-state area
The greens were exceptionally fast and true. I would play there many times again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tedpoerio Beautiful views
The scenery reminds you of the reason you play golf to begin with. To be outside doing something you love to do surrounded by beauty. Most enjoyable in the fall when the leaves begin to turn.

Nice course, predominately through trees, but open enough to enjoy. Nice varied elevations!

Rated 5 out of 5 by ziggy1234 The place was empty.
I was there on a Thursday morning and the place was a ghost town.I waited 1/2 hr for someone to show up to play with. The course was in country club condition. I was amazed. The price was fantastic for the condition of the course.
