Featured Golf Course Review:
Colonial Springs Golf Course - Pines/Valley Course -- Good Play
Review by: Rob Colonial Springs is a nicely maintained course with a lot of charachter. It can pose a difficult time to the average golfer if played off the tips. I found the gold tees (the tips) to be a long course. However, there are two other tees available to play from for men that can cut down on the length. The tees, fairways, and greens are well maintained. I would have thought that getting out as a walk-on would not be a problem with three nines, but as they say, you better get a teetime. This club has a great practice facility boasting tightly mown grass slots at the driving range, a chipping green, and a large putting green. I saw no bunker to practice from, but the rough around the green will challange you. This is true on the course as well. The staff is large and treat you like a member of a country club. The clubhouse is large in size giving you a country club feel. The only downside of the clubhouse is the grill, which is a bit pricy. I thought the greensfees are expensive too, but you do get an overall good experience for your money.

Amherst Audubon Golf Course - Audubon Course -- This course is better than most people think...
Review by: Nate L. A lot of people label this course as an "easy" course. At a slope of 112, and having played the course many times, I would tend to agree. However, the course layout does force you to think especially on the 3 water holes 14, 16, and 17. Unlike most new courses, this course has some strategically placed, full-grown trees guarding greens. The course has put new sand in most of the traps. The course is open and forgiving on most tee shots. It is overcrowded at times, but if you avoid 6:00am (senior citizen time), 10-12pm (college, hs crowd), 3-5pm (second wave), you can play a typical 4:10 hour round. My favorite is the evenings. All of the hackers usually go home by then and you can actually practice on holes by throwing a few balls down without having to worry about keeping pace. This isn't the Royal Niagara or Peninsula Lakes (which are a far superior value compared to any Erie County courses) but the course does hold some interest to the creative golf mind and will reward an "A" game with lots of birdie opportunities for the single digit handicapper. The greens are sloooww and the fairways are sometimes good, sometimes bad depending on the year. You can justify a driver on every par 4 and 5. There are 200yd, 165, and 160 yd par threes. I write this review only to convey to the public who tend to bash audubon that this course is improved and is enjoyable to play as far as it's layout is concerned. It's a great place to practice! Now that you've read this, please don't play this course - it's way to crowded. In my opinion they should raise the rates to keep the population down. I'd be willing to pay extra $ on my season pass to accomodate the rate hike.
