Gunpowder Golf Course

(1) It's like hitting in a hallway - you MUST hit straight or you'll lose at least one ball per hole. I like it because it makes you concentrate on eliminating fades & hooks.
(2) Virgil (the marshal) is really nice. He played the last three holes with me at the end of a slow day and we had a great time.
(3) There's a little bit of an ant problem on a couple holes on the front nine.
(4) The pitch-and-putt section is a good idea, but is not maintained at ALL.
(5) The clubhouse is more than decent for a public course but, as it seems for most public courses in this area, the changing area (bathroom) is really bad - I guess they do that on purpose to make you get dressed at home, which is no good if you're coming straight from work.
(6) The local rule is that you're entitled to grass. Be sure to take that relief 'cause some areas are rocky instead of rough..!
(7) The par 3s are all platform-to-platform - difficult enough to warrant a tougher course/slope rating, in my opinion.
(Overall) a good value. I'll go there often to work on my accuracy.

Had a great time playing here. Friendly staff, and some challenging lies for a poor golfer as myself. Price was great .  Only problem was the slow play.

Course in terrible shape. Almost no grass, tee boxes were mud, no yard markers anywhere. Not sure why they were even open. Should just close for the winter if they're not going to invest anything in maintaining the course. Waste of money & time. Probably in better condition in-season but I'm not going back.

I agree with most of the pros and cons others mention but I still like this place.  It's generally a little run-down, but that's part of the charm.
It is definitely nestled in the natural terrain (very hilly and rocky) but it's also very pretty in places.
The value is outstanding and the course is fun!  I am far from experienced in either number of games or number of courses played, but I give GpG a strong recommend.
