Hopewell Valley Golf Club

We were greeted promptly at the bag drop area by a friendly staff member who loaded our clubs onto carts and set a positive tone for our day. Check in at the Pro Shop went smoothly.
Tee boxes were average , well marked. We found the fairways to be very well maintained although extremely wet. The rough was high. We spent a fair amount of time looking for balls that were hit into it which caused a slower pace of play for our group as well as the groups in front of us as well. The greens are small, they rolled true, but were a little slower due to the rains. The course played longer than the listed yardages because of the humidity and wet grass. We didnt get much if any roll out on our shots. There were several water stations throughout the course. The layout is unique except holes #1 and #10 are very similar. I found that I used every club in the bag. Our group is looking forward to playing there again once the course dries out.

He would play this course again.

Thought we were going to get rained out but played anyway. Two holes closed due to bridges washed out from past weather. Had the course virtually to ourselves. Still very wet, had to clean clubs after every shot and ball after every hole, everything loaded with grass clippings. ( including the cart) Would still play it again no matter the weather, I really like this course.

Hopewell Valley is in great shape and when I played it, it was nearly empty. It is not a difficult course - many of the holes are straight and there only a few holes with woods along the edge. But, the rolling nature of the land as well as the strategic placement of trees and bunkers forces you to hit pretty straight.

Hopewell Valley is an old-style country club with a golf course, tennis courts, swimming pool, and clubhouse. They must be struggling financially because they are offering good prices for the general public to play a country club quality course.

Let me start by saying, I really really want to like this course. The layout was pretty cool and it has so much potential. Greens were firm and true, tee boxes were in ok shape but full of weeds, and the fairways were firm. But the overall quality of maintenance was disappointing. I saw one mower on roughs for only one hole during my whole round and about 60% of the grass rough was sprouting seeds it was so tall. Bunkers were maintained well. But walkways and steps up to tee boxes were riddled with weeds.....if the guys doing bunkers had a weed whacker in thier cart and hit walks and steps around tee boxes the overall appearance would have tremendously improved. This place has some great potential to be a nice course. It has the bones already there, just needs a little money and deication and would be one of my go to places. I'll check it back in a year or so, and hope for an improvement...
