Colby Country Club -- Buffalo chip
Review by: David Sutton The Colby Country Club is a fairly open course with some really good holes. Hole #6 is my favorite hole, a good tee shot can put you on the green if you can get off the tee box. But there is some risk involved in going for the green, a row of trees to hit over in a creek bed below the tee box, out-of-bounds stakes the whole way up to the green and behind it, a grass trap in front of the green, and a row of trees that covers up most of the left side of the rough. Both par 3's can be difficult, but that has a lot to do with some really challenging greens. It is pretty hard to get the ball to stop on these saucer like greens. If you don't hit to the middle of the green on a lot of these holes you may find yourself off the short stuff. The more I play this course the shorter I hit my approaches. I think it is almost easier to hit in front of or the front edge of the green and let the ball roll. The greens on this course are pretty tricky if you don't have much experience with them.

Club of the Country, The -- Is now Metcalf Ridge
Review by: Rex The course is now known a Metcalf Ridge. The best time to play is between mid April (when the fairways start greening up) thru Sept. Dry weather is not a factor on course condition(s) due to several ponds used to water the course. When other courses are brown and dry this one stays green. These same ponds become "hazards" on the 7th & 16th and a few others if you have a bad slice. Overall the course is very nice, but tests your skills due to the fairly narrow fairways, rather tall and very thick rough, and the few times you need to cross the small creek which runs through the middle. I rate this course 4.5 stars on a 5 star rating.
