Well, as a former member, I went back to play the course. Derek, the club pro, was the only positive thing I could say about my experience. The tee boxes were so, so, the sand traps awful, the fringe around the green (what fringe), and the fairways (hard as a rock). Play was scarce for a Sunday. The course itself is a wonderful layout. But management has had this course a few years now, and has done little to improve its PLAYABLILITY. For those looking in Durham, Hillandale, with its "Champion Bermuda greens", soft fairways, great sand, manicured collared greens offer a better experience ... albeit a far less challenging layout. Two and a half-stars is all I can muster..

At a time when the golf industry needs more golfers, Falls Village does what it can to drive off business. And that is exactly why I nor my company will ever host a pair, foursome, or tournament here. On this past weekend, I went to practice on the range, only to get hassled bystaff. I go to buy 2 baskets of balls because the baskets have shrunk by 50% in the last 3 years (more on that another time). And the pro shop staff tells me they can only sell me 1 basket. If this is a policy it is absurd, but I am not sure it is strictly enforce, because I know guys have purchased multiple baskets for the range, including myself as soon as 3 weeks ago. I tell him my coach is on the way, so can I get one for him. He tells me no, and my coach can't teach me anything on their range because it conflicts with their Staff pro's business. I tell him coach isn't charging me, he is just a friend trying to help me out and he insists we will be "run off" if he is coaching on "their range". I have seen countless people giving advice to other golfers on the range. Again, I am not sure if this is policy of just another way to "run off" certain patrons. On any occassion, I left and went to Hillandale Golf Course. Fran, Carl, and Joe were more than welcoming, and even gave a few pointers, in the midst of preparing for a tournament that day. So my lesson this weekend is, if you want to get a fair deal and try to enjoy a day of golf (practicing or playing) Falls Village is not the place.

This is a course that is extremely challenging and not well maintained. I have played the course multiple times in the fall months and have lost tee shots just because they rolled off the fairway. They let the rough grow out and there are leaves all over the place. It also has very tight fairways. If you cannot drive the golf ball straight I would not suggest going to this golf course. There are plenty of other options in the area with wide fairways. If you are looking to challenge yourself with a tight layout this place isn't too bad. Unfortunately, it is a little bit high priced for the lack of maintenance. Also, the greens were never in great shape when I played this course. That is something to consider when deciding to play Falls Village.

What a terrible looking course. Granted it just rained Friday but my 4-some lost about 8 balls in the bunker because of the HUGE muddy puddles in them. We played on Sunday. Greens Superintendent should probably take a pay cut or be fired. The fairways were brutal. Weeds and crabgrass with a mix of dirt. Enough of the course so I can move onto the clubhouse. It was a busy Sunday on a public course with no cart girl to supply beverages or snacks. Can't bring coolers so you would think you could provide some refreshments. Not only was there no cart girl, the grill at the clubhouse wasn't open. No food?!?! You have got to be kidding me. You are missing out on a huge opportunity to make some money. My 4-some would've bought a 12-pack and 6 hot dogs. We were just 4 guys with a tee sheet of 100? This place won't be open next year

At a time where they clearly need revenue it's hard to understand what's going on. For example last tuesday I tried to buy range balls at 6:32 PM. The club house is locked up. Front and back, can't even go inside to buy a beer or soda much less range balls. I counted 31 cars in teh parking lot and 10 people on the range. Did the pro just decide to lock up and play golf? The best thing about the course is how there are no houses on it! Given the tree lined fairways you often feel like your the only group on the course. Greens were alittle rough last weekend. Surprised as usually this time of year they are harder and less easily damaged by ball marks. I would have voted 4 stars except for the above.

Great course. Excellent condition. The staff is outstanding. Very kid friendly. Rangers on the weekend keep it moving. No complaints. One of my favorite places to play in the area. The Golf Pro, Derrick, is a superb instructor. Good selection of golf apparel too.

Played the course June 23rd (2014) -- Monday. Great condition compared to a year (and more) ago. Staff was pleasant and eager to please. Marshall was on the course and worked to keep the pace reasonable. Many workers out maintaining the course and they stopped their machines and turned off the engines while players hit their balls. More grass on the fairways than I've ever seen at Falls Village before. The tee boxes and greens are in great shape. New golf carts are a wonderful improvement. I'll keep playing there -- senior rates are great.

Very fare rates and a membership is a great deal. Good staff and the course is quite challenging from the Gold tees. Highly recommend this course.
