My sixth game of the year and nothing has come close to the quality of the Prescott greens. Very good shape for the time of the year and I can only imagine they will get better.
I'm giving a score of 8/10 and they may even be better in prime season.
Fairways in good shape for the early season.
The yardage markers are a bit hard to see as they are the flexible kind that mowers can run over. Some have gotten a bit chewed.
Fairways are average width and quite fair for an average golfer.
A little work required on the but it's still early in the season.
Nice custom signage at each hole.
The first 3 holes are very similar in yardage and I found I used driver and 6 iron on each one.
The only oddity in the course layout is between holes #13 and #14. You have to loop around #7.
The course is very flat and an easy walk. One pond on the course but it should never come in to play.
Should be a rarity to lose a ball although I did on #16. Out of bounds to the left.
The course was very much to my wife's liking with no long hazards to clear. The rough was quite short so there's wasn't much difficulty getting back onto the fairway.
Only three par 5s for Men.
We paid $62 for cart and two green fees. Very reasonable. I'm sure I'll play here again this summer.
Prescott is not overly long and doesn't play tough. One fairway appears a bit odd as two trees look like they're blocking the fairway. One tree is often seen in a fairway but rarely two (I believe on hole #8).
Lots of nice mature trees.
Trains passed beside the course frequently. I counted five times and each let loose a loud whistle. If you're not used to this the first few will give you a start.
Staff is very pleasant and helpful.
No beverage cart but halfway house was open. Try a jumbo hot dog.
Simple but functional clubhouse. Can hold a decent sized gathering.
Large, adequate, paved parking lot.
Pro Shop is clean with a decent selection of just about everything.
A clean halfway house is found after hole #6 and #13 (the same building). Washrooms are clean and have running water.
The periscope on #12 was not functional but the one on #14 was fine.
Ball washers on every hole and the course was easy to navigate.
Hole #9 was closed temporarily although it looked in fine shape from a distance.
A nice casual golf course set in an established community. Prescott should be proud of their golf course.
