Ivy Hills Country Club


Featured Golf Course Review:
Ivy Hills Country Club -- Even members hate this course! Working is more fun!
Review by: Mark Where to begin? -this course defies walking and riding a cart presents an element of danger, because of the slope -good shots are not rewarded unless one can stop a ball on the side of a hill -trouble (e.g., fairway bunkers) cannot always be seen from the tee -putts seem to break uphill and some greens are so heavily sloped that either some pin placements are unfair or some parts of greens cannot be used -#16, an uphill par 5, plays directly into the afternoon sun -because the entire course is built into a hillside, the only view one has is of a nearby gravel pit -roughs are not groomed, to give the look of a links-style course. However, continual watering makes the rough fierce to play from, if one can even find a ball in there If invited to play this course, it would be better to decline the invitation...

Ivy Hills Country Club -- How good are you Mark?
Review by: Alex I've played Ivy Hills for 10 years. This course is always a test, unless you are accurate with all of your clubs. The greens are always in good shape, and roll true (although they are fast and sloping). The fairways are never bare, and if you are where you're supposed to be (on the course), you'll be rewarded. If you are not straight off of the tee, I'm sure you won't rate this course as high on your list. But as far as shot-making goes, you'll have to play everything you've got.
