Crane Field Golf Course

  18 Reviews

This was my first time playing Crane Field and I had several people recommend this course with words like "love." I had high hopes, but this course is in terrible condition. From the first tee to the 18th green, I was playing off soggy grass, dry yellow, crispy grass, dirt, or mud. I had tons of poor lies in the middle of fairways. The best lies I had all day were out of the rough, were it was at least green. The bunkers were, in my opinion, nearly unplayable. I would say they were gravel, not sand. Several had rocks the size of golf balls in them. I was worried about my clubs hitting out them. And many greens had large dead (almost rotted?) spots. Impossible to putt over.
I walked this course and was happy to see water on a couple of holes, however I was not happy that there were no benches on tee boxes. I had to wait on a couple tees and would have enjoyed sitting down.
The layout was interesting, especially the back nine. A couple of blind shots and forced carries make the back more fun than the front. I think in few years this course will be very nice (as the trees grow and the course matures).
Improve the course condition and I'll be back. The guy in the pro shop was very nice.

He would play this course again.

I have been playing Crane Field for a three years now and this is the best conditions I have experienced. The overall growth of the course is steadily improving and the quality of the greens and fairways is reaching the same levels as other courses in the area. I am a 4 hdcp golfer and there is truly a challenge for all skill types. The smaller green sizes require accuracy on every approach shot. Playing from the tips the course is about 6300 yds which is about the same as the other courses in the area. If you weigh money spent vs the quality of golf, I think it's easily one of the best courses around.

Today, i played Crane Field Golf Course. It has really turned the corner, and the greens have come along the way. the staff is very friendly, and the maintenance crew has really been working hard to get in to top shape. It is a course that you can go out, and have a fun time. You see a bunch of wild life. Definitely a course to check out.

I have played here off and on over the years. The grass has matured and the course looks really nice. The employees are friendly and helpful. The club house is great.

I have played Crane Field every year since it opened. I love the layout and I really enjoy the marshland feel the environment provides. Unfortunately, the course has not been in good shape every time I have gone. Fairways are very difficult to spot, bunkers are rock solid, and the grass can get pretty soggy at times. I really enjoy going out there for a round to practice, usually not too much pressure to play fast. Fairways are long and wide, and hazards are fun to play around.
