Great experience this time around at Golden Hawk Golf Course. We were hesitant to come after our 6 hour round last year. We decided to give it a go because the price was right. $39 on a weekend morning is terrific. We were pleasantly surprised with our 4 hour round this Sunday morning. No issues getting around the course and the conditions were excellent. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only disappointment seems to be the trees that had been cut down all around the course. Seemed bare and the course itself lost some of its charm. Overall a great experience though.

Took us almost 5 1/2 hours to play. Not because it was crowded but, because the golfers in front of us didn't know the etiquette or rules of the game. No one ever asked us if we would like to play through so, we skipped a hole to get in front of them. Then there were 3 guys that played army golf. Both carts would go over to one guys ball wait for him to hit then they all would go over to the next guys ball and watch him hit then they went to the 3rd. guys ball and waited for him to hit. It was almost comical. Then there were 7 people playing together on another hole.

Golden Hawk personnel need to police the course more in an effort to stop that type of play.

Other than that, the course is fun to play.

While the course remains in good shape it is a shame there were so many trees cut down. Many I believe were removed un necessarily. Some of the charm of the course is gone.

Course was in good condition considering all the rain we've had. Cart paths were in rough shape and the traps were full of water, but we had a great time. 1st time there and it was a bit of a challenge with the tight fairways and water hazards. Liked it a lot !

Didn't know it rained so hard here. Everything was saturated. We had the course pretty much to ourselves except for the couple in front of us. I think they were drinking to much. The greens were very soft. I must have fixed two / three ball marks on every one. Hopefully, it will be dry next time we play here.

I usually give this course good ratings however, yesterday was not a good round. Took the two of us 2 3/4 hours to play the front nine and a few minutes past five hours for the whole round. Very frustrating. Also, Vargo Golf had better pay more attention to course maintenance. Wet weather has taken its toll on the fairways, rough and greens.

Be aware you need to hit fairways to play well. The rough is deep and difficult advance st times.

My last review covered the cart paths and condition of the club house. I'm happy to see the cart paths are being repaired and while I was there I saw someone on the roof picking the weeds / trees out of the gutters. The course itself was in nice shape but, I don't understand why some of the ponds are almost empty and some are full! It was an enjoyable round even though we had to skip a hole due to very slow players in front of us,

While the course was in good condition, the cart paths are still in dire need of repair. You have to drive around all the deep pot holes on the grass which is killing it. The exterior of the club house needs some TLC. looked up and saw 2-3 foot high weeds / trees growing out of the gutters. I'll still go back again because I like the course but, I hope things get fixed soon.
