The place is out of control. My wife and I played on a Sunday afternoon. Groups of men were jumping around the course. One group was playing a loud radio. we had to quit after 13 holes. A group of men jumped on ten just as we were finishing 9. They were taking 20 minutes per hole.

He would not play this course again.

We have played this course several times since it opened play to the public a couple years ago. Staff is always very helpful. Can get the feel somewhat of a private club although you can tell in some areas they might be struggling financially (practice range) but the course itself was in great shape.....including the greens, bunkers, tee boxes, fairway, rough. Practice range balls are also free. We stayed for burgers/beer afterwards and ate on the outside deck. Food and service were excellent and reasonably priced. Even at the normal rate of $50, the experience is a good deal. We'll continue to play as long as they continue to stay open to the public.

I expected an old style golf course which I got and enjoyed. The holes were varied and while not overly long, on this day of heavy air and soft turf they played long. Small greens putted well but don't get above the hole. What I was disappointed in was the conditions of the tees and some of the greens being bare. Clubhouse staff was friendly, girl in halfway house seemed annoyed to have to take out her ear piece from phone when I went in. Didn't even look old enough to serve alcohol. I played solo so can't comment on pace but eventually a foursome in front of me let me through even as I wasn't pushing them. Course was not crowded but full enough that a single couldn't play through multiple groups. I got some good photos but they are on my phone.

I have been wanting to play HVGC for awhile now since it became a semi-private course. The average rating on Golf Advisor had me concerned.

Course layout - par 72 and we played from the tips around 6600 yards. Every hole had its own uniqueness. I found the layout to be very fun to play. Lots of elevation changes, both uphill and downhill shots. Hole 4 Par 5 had both downhill tee shot and uphill approach shot. Several doglegs as well.

Condition of course - probably a 4 out of 5. They were watering the course during our round and we had to wait several times for the sprinklers to shut off. Strange since it was primetime Friday. Some holes were perfect. Most of the greens were in great shape. But Hole 10 had a random dead/dry spot in the middle of the green. Some areas were spotty around the course. Some tee boxes were in bad shape.

Staff - no complaints. We waited 10 minutes to be checked in at the proshop since nobody was present.

Halfway House - located by the 1 and 10 holes. Nice location and stocked with food/drinks.

Driving Range - located randomly by Hole 17/18. A good few min ride from the 1st tee box. But, grass range was in great shape. Great experience before the round!

Overall - I had a very good time playing here. The club was not too busy so we had plenty of time and never felt rushed. We played as a twosome and finished within 3 hours 4 minutes.
