Rated 5 out of 5 by Scott150VPD Well worth your time
I nailed this on a Golfnow Friday hot rate of $10. It was a sunny, but blustery fall day. I drove an hour and 20 mins from Binghamton NY to play as a solo, as all my normal golfing buddies were busy. The course was pretty much deserted, with only 5 other cars in the lot. The starter was cordial and I was quickly through the check in process and ready to go. The couple that I was supposed to be paired with asked to play alone, as one of them was a newbie, so the starter sent me off alone on the back 9 first. I was thankful for that and played the back 9 unobstructed in an hour and 20 mins. I made the turn with a wave to the starter and breezed through the front 9 in nearly equal time. The course is beautifully maintained and well designed. This is mountain golf at its best, with lots of elevation change and little room for mistakes. As such, don't expect to shoot your career low round here. I hit the bar after the round and had a sandwich and a couple beer. Staff were courteous and the food tasty. It was a day we'll spent. I'll definitely be back.

Rated 5 out of 5 by chimez78 Great game!
The conditions were great this day. Staff was very accommodating. Cart was prepared upon arrival and loaded by the staff. Was a slow day so not overly crowded. Course was in great condition and scenery was amazing.

Course was great. But the Sand traps had minimal sand in them. This could be improved

I read a ton of reviews on the course before playing it for the first time. It is an extremely hilly course, both up and down. We arrived a little early and the starter was able to get us out early as a twosome. It seems like this course really pushes the pace of play which is great. There is a sign outside the pro shop letting you know that and we also saw the ranger about 6 or 7 times during the round. Even at the turn, when ordering hotdogs and a candy bar, they bring it out to you on the course so that play does not stop moving.
First hole out of the gates is an up hill par 5 that you are looking up at. It has a pond that you cannot see right about the 150 marker. It is a tough hole to start on especially with no driving range. There is a few doglegs that drop down to the green. Some I would say around 50 feet. There is a lot of blind shots that would require you to play a few times to get your distances and clubs correct. There is a good amount of water on the course, which always keeps the round fun. I really did not think any of the holes were unfair but some of the design left me scratching my head.
The greens were in great shape, rolled very nicely but were a little hard and tough to hold. The fairways were in nice shape and the rough was a little patchy at times. Overall, the shape of the course was great

Rated 4 out of 5 by ejmolnar Beautiful course
Except for the blind shots where a very good drive wound up 200ft down into a ravine the course was ok. Its tough as My courses go but in mint condition. Not for beginners or hackers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bknechtel Great features; know where the hazards are.
GPS was more than helpful playing course for first time. Straight shots are good but many shots needed to be L or R to avoid water and hazards on 1st 'n 2nd shots. Lay-ups were big! Challenging course; looking forward to playing it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by u000007175024 Scenic but difficult
Extreme elevation changes. Seldom had a flat lie. Many blind shots. Challenging, perhaps difficult greens, to judge. Very scenic and we'll maintained. Would be willing to give it a second chance now that I know where Tha problem are. My wife on the other hand will not give it a 2nd.chance. women's and sr. Tees were not very user friendly.
