There has been A LOT of rain which has made keeping the grounds up difficult. The rough was higher, and thicker, than US Open standards. It made FINDING a ball in the rough VERY DIFFICULT EVEN WHEN JUST OFF THE FAIRWAY. The cart paths are filled with deep holes on every hole.Reminded me of a mine field. The course could use better marking for distances.

Played on a beautiful morning after a week of rain. But the course was not soaked like other area courses. It drains well and only had a bit of standing water on one hole but not a large area. The staff could not be friendlier or more helpful. They went out of their way to pair up my twosome but there was no one else around at the time so let us go out right away. The greens are in great shape, smooth rolling and just quick enough. You can make some putts. With 3 nines there is availability to play 9 or 18. It is a bit far for me to play regularly but will make the trip when we feel like playing again.

Nice course but flat with very little movement in the greens. Easy to score well. Areas between fareway's are full of thistles and very high weeds. Answer to that of course is to stay in the fareway., However instead of adding to the charm of the course these areas make the course look cheap and somewhat unkept. A better way to make the course a bit more fun (and challenging) would be to add a few bunkers around the front of the greens. Kudo's to the greens keeper as the greens roll true. The course has three-9 hole courses with regular rotation to make for variety of 18 hole experiences. The staff is very friendly. I would have given the course a 4 star rating if the approach to the greens forced me to be a bit more strategic in my shot selection. You can basically shoot for the front of the green and let the ball roll up on virtually every hole.

I’ve played Boone Creek since 2000, and the course is getting better with age. While the layout is pretty straight forward, the grounds crew keep the difficulty up by having longer, thicker ruff and we’ll manicured greens. The pro shop is always very accommodating to help you with all of your needs. I recently booked a larger charity outing at Boone and was blown away by the help that was provided. The bar area is well run, and the food/drink prices are very reasonable.

Boone Creek Golf Course is well worth the trip out to play. You’d be hard pressed to find a better value for the cost at any other local courses.
