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.

Links at Sunset Ridge -- Gary's Review
Review by: Gary Gates I have to admit that I have been a charter member since it opened about 5 years ago. It is a very pretty course and the greens and fairways are maintained in excellent condition. Indeed you can use every club in your bag during an 18 hole round. Fairways range from relatively flat to uphill or down hill. The greens are some what undulating such that an approach shot or chip close to the pin is rewarded while a shot further away typically will require at least a two put to get it in. So far a few sand traps have been installed with probably more to come. During the peak season the tees suffer some what from heavy member play and frequent tournaments. The restaurant has excellent meals especially on Friday and Saturday nights or for booked events. The staff are very friendly and ready and willing to assist in any way they can. The carts have GPS locator systems built into them (the 1st. in Central New York I believe) which enable you to electronically record your score, know your yardage at all times from the cart to the pin, and even to order refreshments at the turn. Try out the course. You will be pleasantly surprised.
