Featured Golf Course Review:
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.

Leroy Country Club -- Decent 9 hole course.
Review by: Anonymous This is not a bad little 9 hole track, but certainly not one of the best in the area. The course can play extremely slow due to crowding, and member outings and leagues. The fairways and greens are nice, however the greens are quite sloped and fast. Leaving the ball below the hole on approach is critical to scoring on this golf course. The couse is not long, and only requires driver on about 3-4 of the holes. A creek comes into play on a few holes, but no large water hazards are really in play unless you hit a very bad shot. The clubhouse offers full beverage and grill service, and there is a swimming pool for use by members only. You will certainly play better courses in the area, but can pay more an play worse courses too.
