Saw Hot Deal an hour before early tee time and was able to take advantage of a better rate than I could have gotten with my County ID. With the recent rain course was in great condition and I’ve have played here over100 times over the years.

I had read reviews and heard people talk so I was trying not to have too high expectations while expecting something good. The course exceeded expectations. On a late afternoon weekday the course was not crowded and play was not restricted in pace. The layout was great with no two holes alike with doglegs going both ways and ample fairways. Greens were very smooth but on the slow side so once I adapted to that putting them was really good. It's a little pricey for out of state players but that's where GolfNow Hot Deals comes in to make it more affordable for a PA resident less than an hour away.

I always like playing Mercer oak courses especially the west. Always in great condition. Greens are perfect so are the fairways with the exception on the 15 hole there’s a little patch just beyond the landing zone that’s under repair. The gentleman in the back office I believe is the head pro is always nice as well as the lady. Wish they can replace the other two who are checking golfers in. They just give you that vibe that makes you not wanna come back and to contribute to their paychecks but then you think about all of the other great staff who are super friendly. Cart girl comes around often.

Been playing Mercer County for 40+ years.

experience same as always except the booking process.

Many many county residents very upset with the new golf now booking system.

Especially the fact that we can no longer either modify the number of players or cancel a on line booking .which now requires a phone call to bother the pro shop staff who are helping people check in. Those phone calls are slowing down the check in process.

If you can drive the ball 200 straight, you will be shooting for the pin on most holes. This is what made it fun!!

It was so windy, I almost lost my balance putting. The course was so wet from current rains, it was cart path only, but the staff explained why, and was very pleasant about it.

Course was in pretty good condition considering the weather lately, you can tell they were working on it.

I was late due to road construction, but the staff was still pleasant to me. I hate it when people show up late, and now it was my turn. Took double the time it should have to get there. Overall, wind considered, a pleasant experience. First time I have seen a beverage cart girl (I think) bundled in a muckluck.
