I got nothing against this place and I was hoping it would be decent so after a buddy had come to me saying have you seen goat hill it has grass all over it, I agreed to play it. When I arrived the hippy chick running the place was trying to screw my buddy out of an extra ten bucks per player and her assistant, some guy about 30 was telling someone other dude about all the ways they had of screwing non locals out of cash. We did end up getting our 25 dollar golf now rate and we did tee off on time and that's about the most positive thing I can say. The greens have ebola and are horrible the fairways do have grass but it's uneven and the ground is so hard your ball can kick anyplace and since the whole course is cart path only finding your ball and having the correct club is a rare treat.the traps are terrible shallow and hard the rough areas don't resemble a golf course at all. Now I know somebody out there is saying" what do u out expect for 25 bucks" so I will tell you .I expect the place to be closed until it's in a condition to be played. I don't mind a scrappy little golf course here and there but the layout here is silly and the condition is below playable and the scga Should be ashamed of its self for allowing this dirt lot to stay open. In fact the only thing funnier than this place telling us that the rates are going up are the 170.00 Sunday bags with a goat hill logo they are trying to sell with a straight face. If this is your spot and you want to defend it I feel sorry for you. Some things are wrong, drunk driving, hitting girls and playing here. If you go here now you have been warned you only have yourself to blame . Golf now should have standards and not deal with is place and if your reading this and are with the scga do your job in golf we are supposed to police our selves and have standards, this place is below any Standard I can imagine

Played as a solo walker around 10 AM on Monday for $15. I completed 18 holes in about 2 hours and 15 minutes but decided to play the front nine twice since a local community college had their team playing and I caught their four groups on 10 (didn't really want to wait).
The course is definitely coming along nicely and the recent rains absolutely helped. There were some pretty wet areas since it rained all day Sunday, but the course actually drained surprisingly well.
The biggest area of improvement I'm seeing is the greens. They were always the best part of the course anyway, but you could see that they had been let go and suffered from some disease or something, but they are getting them in shape and I had nothing but smooth, true rolls all day.
I actually took some pics this time around since all that's on here are some shots from about 6-7 months ago from sixpez. Unfortunately I only have one that was taken from the same spot he took one, but I think the improvements show up.
Again, the people in the shop were awesome, and I was happy to see so many maintenance guys out working on a little bit of everything. It's still a work in progress but it's coming along and for $15 I got a great workout (this thing is HARD to walk), some sunshine and really got to work on my game (smallest greens I've ever played so when you get a GIR you know you're doing something right).
