The course was in great shape, from tee boxes to the greens. And some of the best greens I've putted on this year. And all of the staff was very helpful and friendly. Definitely a course I would play again if I have the chance.

Gary (Oviedo, Fl)
06/01/2017
Loved the course. Immaculate fairways and greens. Could not fault this place. Best conditioned course I have played, probably ever!

Raymond (Canada)
03/11/2017
Truly enjoyed playing on this course because it was so well maintained. It will be on my list for next year for sure. Great value for our golfing dollar.

Cindy (Ann Arbor, MI)
03/05/2017
Beautiful course, but still building up community and will be great once trees and houses are up. Greens were very challenging.

Steve
02/03/2017

We love this course and on this trip we played it twice. Tee Times was able to work it out where on the second round we played the nine holes that we did not play the first time. Best greens in the area, fast but smooth and true.

University Park is always in great condition and is an excellent 27 holes of golf (we played 1-18) which will test all abilities. Would always be on our list when in the area.

Dean (Cranston, RI)
03/28/2015
Very nice course with a highly trained and very professional staff. We have played the course twice now and it's one of our favorites. Personally I like the 2nd and 3rd nines the best as the 1st nine is on the tight side. Fast greens. Stay below the hole if possible.

Barry

We had a very nice day, and appreciate that you were able to reschedule for us.

Ben (Prosper, TX)
01/16/2015
Great CC. We had a great time on this very well manicured facility. All four of us playing belong to private clubs in Texas, and we appreciated, as non members of this CC, we couldn't use the private lounge for members only. We were able to have a post round drink and snacks in the other area of the Club.

John (Prospect, KY)

Have played this course before and will play it again. The staff is very courteous and helpful. Needed to get out a little early than our tee time and the starter was able to accommodate us. Course and greens were in good shape.
