1 IS LOWEST - 10 IS HIGHEST
FAIRWAY VILLAGE GOLF &
COUNTRY CLUB - OUR COMMENTS
Maintenance: The course is
very well maintained - green fairways, very few brown spots
even in the late summer. Even the often-neglected tee
boxes are well taken care of. Seems like they make every
effort to keep it green for the residents of the surrounding
Scenery: Very nice - homes and
condos from the Fairway Village Retirement Community line the
fairways - each with their own little flower garden.
Flowers are around many of the trees, and the fountains lining
the fairways are a lovely touch. Lots of trees on the
course, especially the latter half makes for a nice relaxing
Fun: Quite enjoyable, actually.
You can drive on six of the nine holes - each hole is unique
and with different scenery. We always leave with a smile
on our faces.
Safety: The fairways are all
independent of each other, so the danger of getting hit by
golf balls is virtually non-existent. You do have to
cross the neighborhood streets a few times, so be careful.
Very little traffic, but you never know.
Staff: A group of pleasant
older gentlemen. Very helpful. The marshall is
attentive but not obnoxious, and if he has to say something to
you, he's pleasant about it.
Design: Weaving through a senior
housing community, the course is well laid out to give you
enough room between the houses (most of the time), and the
landscaping is well thought out. The course doesn't get
boring easily, as each hole is designed differently from the
next. It's a fairly easy course, but as a senior-only
country club, that's probably intentional. The walk
between the holes is just right - long enough to get out of
the way, but not too long.
Value: For just $11 for nine
holes, you don't expect to get much - we think the course
definitely gives you your money's worth. That's why we
keep going back.
Other Comments: If you're a
brand new beginner, and the ball often flies off to the side
instead of going down the fairway, you'll find that the homes
seem really close to the fairway, and you'll find yourself
bouncing balls off of rooftops, crawling under decks, etc.
You may want to consider a course that is a little wider if
this sounds like you.
