Played early in am and course was wet from Dew, so no roll after the ball landed. First time playing course so some holes were difficult to find. More signage both for distance and location of next hole necessary. Felt it was a good course to play and would be helped by better upkeep of the greeens and fairways. Would give this course another chance .

The course was in great shape. The greens are superior. The course is beautiful this time of year. The layout of the front and back provide a great golfing experience; it is like playing two different golf course providing enough challenge for experienced golfers and enjoyment for golfers new to the sport. Will continue to play the course as it is now my favorite in the area. The friendly staff and good food provide a country club ambiance which is a nice touch.

Trumansburg course far better course with a friendly staff, unlike the egotistical management at Hillendale.

Staff was exceptional. The course was in great condition and the views were breathtaking. The owner gave me a tip on the driving range, which was so helpful I went back for a lesson. Their burgers were great too.
