Twelve of us did a two day Stay and Play at Old Silo last weekend and couldn't be more pleased and impressed. From tee to green, the course conditions were suburb, the staff tok care of us. We stayed at the Fairfield (walking distance) and ate all of our meals at Old Silo. Friday night they had live music and a cookout. All things positive here and the price was right.

Would travel: 120-300 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again

At one time this course was well maintained and a good value. The course was sold and the new owners do not want to spend any money to maintain the course and the bunkers have been marked as ground under repair and unplayable the entire spring and now summer. The staff is less than friendly and the place has really took a nose dive. I would not recommend this course for a golf trip.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy

The course was very wet when we played and the bunkers were full of water. However, except for the wet bunkers, the course condition and layout made for an enjoyable afternoon at a reasonable price.

Would travel: 60-120 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area, Best course in the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
