The greens were pitch and putt size. The fairways were all dirt. My buddy and I could of played 18 but it was so bad we stopped after 7 holes.

He would not play this course again.

This course was not worth that kind of money. It rained on the day we went and we called before didn't metion it was walking only. After arriving was unfriendly when. We asked to get compensation. The schools practice fields were greener then the course was. At only 9 holes around a highschool I don't think that this is anywhere near the money that they are trying to charge.

The course is clearly an old style layout. It's very narrow at times and that helps add some challenge considering it's not particularly long. There are also some tough angles. I wouldn't call it a difficult course but you have to hit good shots to score well. You have to be straight and accurate. The fairways are certaintly not plush but they are for the most part ok. There isn't a lot of rough but with the narrow fairways you don't want any. The greens were in great shape and rolled very well.

It was the first time I played the course and it was perfect for a quick round to work on my game. I paid less than 20 dollars and definitely a value play. If you're looking for manicured and heavily landscaped this isn't your course. I'd describe it as rustic. I'll be back as I enjoyed it..

I played Blair for the first time in about 20 years and was reminded what a challenging golf course it is. Tight, unforgiving fairays on many holes, together with severe punishment for the slightest mishit make it a good test of your skills. The design of the course is very clever and it is suprisingly difficult.

The fairways and sand hazards are below average and I did not notice any irrigation for the fairways. Some areas had crabgrass and other spots in the fairway were burnt out. However I did rate the conditions as average because the greens were in great shape and had some speed to them.

If you offended by the somewhat "rustic" fairways and hazards this course is not for you. But if you are willing to just play it as it lies and enjoy the true 1930's design of the course, you can have a great time. It was a weekday and the course was not crowded and I finished 18 holes in about 3 hours playing as alone with a cart. It was very relaxing and enjoyable and I will be back.

Course is in good shape . Greens are fast but fair. My only critique would be that the sand traps need quite a bit of work.
