This updates my previous review from 2008.

Our group of travelling seniors played here 9-25-12, for $29, which included a "free" lunch. Without the "free" lunch, it would've been $25...go figure.

Anyway the course layout, etc. has not changed, but the ownership situation has, as they are no longer affiliated with Carroll Valley, which is on the other side of Fairfield, about 4 miles south. That's not necessarily a bad thing, as the new ownership deal has brought some improvement to the course. Conditions today were very good, notably the greens, which were fast and true, although a bit firm and not especially receptive to holding long irons. The fairways were OK, but the bunkers were way too hard, and almost unplayable. The course should also rebuild many of the tee boxes, as they are not at all level.

The food/bar facilites have greatly improved, as there is a new "annex" to the clubhouse (which is still that neat old farmhouse); it has new restrooms, a new kitchen and a covered seating area. Quite a step up, AND, they now have their liquor license, so one can now get an adult beverage to soothe one's fevered brow! The staff is OK, not exactly country club level, but friendly and accomodating.

We recommend.

Would travel: 20-30 Miles, Not Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Fair priced based on quality and competitive area pricing
