It's a real good course for a muni. Decent bar, limited food in grill area, but nice staff. Pro shop staff suck!! Unhelpful, borderline rude: Don't greet you in any way, no smiles. It's golf for God's sake not a dentist office. Need alot of work on people/management skills./

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing

Course too tough for short hitting seniors at 6300 plus yards. Greens super fast with a lot of slope. The greens need to be leveled out for fair play.

Course is good for intermediate golfers since it is relatively wide open. Fairways were wet and greens were very wet in some spots even though it was in the middle of a sunny day. Course played longer than the yardage since the wetness limited any roll off the tee.

This course just keeps getting better and better. CourseCo has truly honored the course's heritage and continue's to improve every aspect of this facility. One of the first tracts designed by world famous Robert Muir Graves before he hit the big time!

Since Course Co has taken over the course from Bob Boldt the quality of conditioning on the course has improved dramatically. I have been playing this place for years and since a new vendor has taken over it has gotten a little better. The staff in the pro shop is nice except for the two ladies that work the desk who are meaner than an old rattlesnake and not afraid to bare their fangs. It is a lot better than some other places

First time i played in this track...Some narrow fairways and the greens were F A S T. If you miss a 3footer, it will roll by 6 or 7 feet. Good challenge.

Been playing since 1985. Was a Men's Club member for 4 years. Haven't played it since 2008. Clearly the new people involved in course maintenance have adopted a different approach. Course was in the best condition I had ever seen.

Boundary Oak is a nice course with pretty views both on the course and off on the horizon. The course is well maintained and provides a nice variety of challenges. The staff is friendly and helpful, but the marshall did not manage the slow play effectively.
