Featured Golf Course Review:
Stoney Creek Golf Course & Range -- Short but challanging
Review by: Tony This couse is extreamly short measuring out at just over 5000 yards from the tips. It will challange you to make percise tee shots because the creek comes into play on 6 holes. There are 8 par three's on the course. What relly makes up the yardage is the greens. While they are fair they can be tough. If there has been no rain expect them to play fast and for there to be breaks that you sometimes can't read. Local knowledge helps with the greens. All in all a good deal for the greens fees.

Byron Hills Golf Course -- Byron Hills, What day is it?
Review by: John Bailey Depending on the day, Byron Hills can either offer a pleasant diversion for a summer day, or the golf equivalent of World War III. The character of the course changes dramatically depending on Pin and Tee placements. Hole #5 is a perfect example of this phenomenon. If the pin is placed in the middle to back of the green, it is very approachable and in some locations, the ball will collect near the hole. If the pin is placed in the front, it is nearly impossible to putt and keep the ball on the green if you are above the hole. When the summer heat hits, the greens become very firm, lightening fast and the nearly impossible becomes the absolutely impossible. The staff is friendly and courteous. The course is kept in excellent condition and the carts are mint. To sum up, the course provides an excellent test of shot making and course management, with plenty of opportunity to play the "Risk/Reward" game thrown in as a bonus. I enjoy Byron Hills very much and you probably will also.
