  • This is one of the easiest golf courses to play. They don't have any bunkers, that makes for a great day for me. There is water but not a lot. It is a forgiven course. It is worth the money. The only ...  read more »

  • New course is more challenging than the old course, but both are good the average golfer.
  • I've told many people this unfortunate story: On August 21 we were at the Knollwood new course for an afternoon company golf tournament. My daughter and I were enjoying our day with a variety of experienced and new golfers when the course marshall drove up to our hole. We were the last foursome in the tournament and for some reason the marshall started pressuring us to hurry up (all day we'd been waiting for the group ahead of us so we couldn't go any faster) . He just sat on his golf cart and watched us --extremely rude! To me it's like enjoying dinner with friends at a restaurant and having a waiter stand next to your table and stare at you and pressure you to finish as there are other people waiting to eat. The course was a pleasure, enjoyed my time with my daughter, but was appalled at the extremely poor customer service by your elderly marshall!
  • Beautiful venue for a wedding!
  • I thoroughly enjoyed my round yesterday on the Old Course! This is not a long course but it has fabulous rolling greens that make it a challenge for even seasoned golfers! Be sure to check the lay of the land as you approach the green if you are a golfer that focuses on your scorecard! The deep deep woods with beautiful, varied, mature trees made this round especially delightful. Thread the needle on your drives and have a great round!
  • We had our wedding at the new course in June 2014- ceremony on the east lawn and reception at Harris Hall. Overall we had a great day and were happy with our choice of venue. For simplicity I will break down the pros and cons of this venue: PROS - Beautiful rustic venue with converted barn (Harris Hall) - You can rent the "inn" on the property and hold your rehearsal dinner there and then get ready there the day of the wedding as well as stay there the night of the wedding... Very convenient, and a very sweet house- perfect for pictures! - They allow you to bring in a food truck for late night food- you can opt out of their late night food option and they will rebate you an amount per person. This is pretty unique for a venue to allow outside food on their property and was a big hit with our guests! - Food was great (at the tasting they plated small portions which worried us but the day of the wedding the portions were totally appropriate) CONS - Golfers will be around the day and into the evening; they do not close off the stone lounge to golfers so there may be some overlap between your guests and golfers during cocktail hour - We had the experience that they held a tournament the day of our wedding and actually used our reception room for a lunch for the golfers. We weren't notified of this beforehand and I wasn't able to get in to the room to set up my decor the way I wanted before the wedding, causing a fair amount of stress. They have since apologized for this oversight and compensated us. - Inconsiderate staff- my sister in law made our wedding cake and made amazingly intricate fondant flowers. After serving the cake the staff actually threw ALL of these in the garbage!!! It almost made me cry it was such a waste. They have since apologized for this. They did set aside our top tier for us but it has no flowers on it... Such a waste. The staff were also somewhat ambivalent at times, not super organized with our items (the next day we had to ask multiple times about specific items until they found them for us) and did not follow through with everything on our "event sheet" (I.e. moving flowers from ceremony site to reception site) until I reminded them to. As I said before, the day was great and we wouldn't change our choice of venue if we could. Any wedding will have some hiccups and in hindsight ours were relatively small- Christina and Nicole did a great job and responded to my issues afterwards with genuine concern and compassion.
