Warminster's Five Ponds Golf Course
Slow as Usual
Five Ponds is a nice track with a good setup and challenging holes. But the pace has always been a problem. I haven't been back for years as a result. But I was playing with some friends that were new to the area, so I thought a mid-day time might be better. Nope.
There are a few bottlenecks (3-4, 12, 17) that really keep pace down. There was a ranger but seemed to do little to keep play moving. I actually saw a group using a tape measure to get the putt distance.
I had to skip 17 & 18 to get to a prior engagement but the round took my playing partners nearly five hours. For the relatively high price, and time value cost, I won't be back for a while. If you like waiting at every hole and playing a round in 5 hours, then this is the course for you.

Good value at that time of day
This is a $65 course in my opinion. Tough layout. The place was super crowded and slow. There was no ranger out there to keep things in line. One par 3 had 3 groups waiting to play. It was a good deal at $45 but the staff neesd to up their game to meet course's level. Played the afternoon on a Sunday and the snack bar was closed?

Love this course
All aspects of this course (fairways, rough and greens) were in great shape. Pace of play was perfect, only had to wait on 2 holes and no longer than a couple minutes. Highly recommend this course.

Course Well Maintained
Enjoyed playing the course except for the slow play.
The course was in very good condition especially the greens. Would definitely recommend!

great day of golf
Five Ponds gave us a great experience on a great weather day. The course is in excellent shape. We played in about 3:45mins, which is good on a weekend anywhere. Fairways were in very good shape, the greens were perfect & rolled nicely.

I've played multiple times and course is always in good shape. Greens are tricky to read when they're rolling fast, but they are challenging and fair.
Course offers multiple challenges, especially on the back 9.
