    Flat greens. Take aim at the flag, putt, and hope you don't hit anything to cause your ball to go off line. This may sound a little extreme but I can't remember too many times any of us had a putt that broke more that a couple of inches.
    The Madawaska Twisted Pines fairways varied from narrow to generous. The front nine has some very tight holes while the back nine can be a bit more forgiving. Overall, the fairways were in average shape. 150 markers quite visible but 100 and 200 inserts can be a bit hard to locate.
    Tees were rough and a bit uneven. Only two sets of tee boxes so varying yardages can be expected with respect to the scorecard.
    The signature par 3 7th is a challenge for any skill level. Containing a pond and large willow on the right side of the fairway with trees pressing in from the left.
    Beyond the 7th hole there wasn't a lot that was memorable.
    Not much in the way of elevation changes. Similar to the greens. An easy course to walk.
    Not one of my favorite courses. It's a place to "bang the ball" and enjoy your company.
    Not overly priced for a membership so if you live nearby Madawaska isn't a bad deal for the money.
    By the handicap system Madawaska appears to be the easiest course I've played this year. However, handicap ratings can be deceiving. They don't appear to take into account course conditions.
    I would not say this course is easy, nor difficult. There are some very tight and challenging holes where accuracy is a necessity. A bit on the short side.
    With a highway nearby it's tough to get a feeling of privacy.
    Established trees are throughout the course so you don't normally see across fairways.
    No beverage cart encountered and I was looking for one.
    Proshop staff was friendly and starter gave us a shout when to tee-off.
    I didn't see much in the way of a 'club' atmosphere.
    There appeared to be a large junior membership as a bunch of young boys were heading to the Sumac (short) course.
    Prices posted around the course showed that food pricing was quite reasonable.
    Course was easy to navigate although we did play with a father and son who had experienced the course many times before. Their tips were much appreciated.
    The shorter Sumac course looks to be a great track for practicing your short game. Not a true executive course as it offers 7 short par 4s and no par 5s.
