I played Paxon Hollow on 9/11/2014 as part of a golf-outing; however, I have played it a handful of times before. My last visit was in 2012 and I said I would never be back because my Saturday round took 5 1/2 hours.
I wanted to write this review because the course was in really good shape (compared to other times that I played it). The course is relatively short but that is not a bad thing. A handful of the par 4's force your to hit something other than a driver off of the tee box which is a nice change of pace. 17 is definitely one of my least favorite holes I have ever played as it is 100 yard par 3 with the green being about 30 yards below the tee box. The par 5 18th makes up for the quirky 17th by demanding a well placed tee and second shot.
I can't speak to the pace of play issue that I have experienced before because I was playing in a scramble but I had an enjoyable round of golf with some of my buddies.
this is for the golf shop and course.
The course gets crowded on spring weekends - so consider golfing mid week (if you can) to play through more quickly.
Pretty course and a friendly well-run shop.
Played on 4/19, pace was VERY SLOW, ranger just drove around and did nothing, back nine we had new foursome in front of us, that thought it was a good idea to bring a 5 year old on the golf course to play in sand traps, not to bright, will never plat this course again unless I want to bring my grandson to play in giant sand boxes!!!!
the superindendent of this course must be a hack...where did he learn his trade?...frank's nursery?...greenskeeping means keeping the course in good shape...make note of it
PH is a short but challenging course that forces you to consider something other than your driver on many of the tee boxes. It's in good condition and, despite being mildly crowded, plays pretty quickly.
A good option for when you want an easier course to focus on your short game. Seriously, you could play irons off every tee and still be fine.
Also, is there some way to remove non-course reviews from course listings on yelp? Maybe just two separate listings?
