A player friendly course; nothing exceptional, but no real drawbacks either. I would play here again.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy

I am a senior and played during the week, getting a significant discount. The weekend price of about $40 (walking) is less attractive. But I normally play a much harder country club, and this course was fun. It is flat (easy to walk), and not really difficult, but it is still golf and some holes are quite challenging. My playing partners all enjoyed the course, and on those days when my club is not available (tournament days, for example), I would be happy to return to play Wildhawk. The proshop staff was courteous and pleasant, but didn't provide much information, and the driving range is sub-par, but not terrible.

...our group of knuckleheads plays this course about 3 times/year.....it is just a fun course...not too difficult, but some challenging elements to be dealt withon a # of holes....the worst thng i can say about the condition of the course is that the fairways always seem to have tight lies....but they are good tight lies...it really is a non-issue for our guys...it is a fun course....

Nice course, almost always in good condition. The staff go out of their way to greet the customers. Lately, the rough just off the fairways has gotten a lot deeper, adding to the course difficulty and making the course a stronger test. I play Wildhawk once a month or more; the prices are pretty decent for a muni course of this quality.

Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Bargain priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Wildhawk is a good average golf course that I will play again and recommend to anyone. Overall condition is good and the greens are great. My only problem is the pace of play. That probably is due to the fact that it is a good bargain for the quality of the course.

This is a great public course! Perfect for walking and a very friendly staff. It can get crowded at times, but the course marshalls try to keep it moving. Used to have A LOT more rough, but they have cut a lot of it down to speed up play. Some of the bunkers need a lot more sand, so check before you hit your shot or you might find no more than a half an inch of sand under your ball!
