Tight but beautiful course is somewhat unforgiving in places. Greens were in great shape. Staff was helpful and courteous.

The Gauntlet is a nice club....tough course but in good condition. The staff are friendly and helpful. Kudos to Brian in the pro shop, made me feel very welcomed, and Denise, who was running the beer cart. She was really pleasant and friendly and came around several times, unlike some places where you might see a drink cart once per... More

I loved the layout of the golf course, but the round took almost 6 hours to complete because the course was overbooked. The course was in good shape. Book your tee time on GolfNow because it is much cheaper than booking through the pro shop. Bring bug spray because the yellow flies are brutal.

I've played here since it opened in 95. The course is in superior condition. Plush fairways, greens roll true. A lot of work has been one on the couse and it shows. A must play in the region.

Upon my recent visit to The Gauntlet Golf Course I had a very disturbing experience. I was approaching the front desk to check myself, my family, and friends in. There was no one there. Out of nowhere to my disbelief I heard a sexually explicit conversation going on in the office behind the check in counter. I was absolutely mortified,... More

the first 5 holes of this course have some beautiful scenery. the course is generally in good shape, a few greens are in need of some help. a fair course that is basically tree lined on every hole. keep it straight.

This course was absolutely beautiful and challenging. The front nine is tight and requires some thought to pick your way through it. The back opens up a bit. The fairways are well manicured and overall the course is well cared for. The reason for only four stars? The greens. They rolled well enough but it was apparent that they could... More

My son recently played in a Junior PGA golf tournament here. The course is beautiful but has some pretty narrow fairways and some tough Tee box locations. It borders a beautiful quiet lake and is a great challenge. Course well maintained. Sand traps were red clay/sand, though, not white sand. It had rained torrentially the night before so it was...

This is a great to play for either precision hitter or standard as long as you know where to play from tee box wise. Course has come about real nice in the past couple years. Great staff. Nice view from the clubhouse to watch other golfers coming in and going out while relaxing and enjoying an after round drink.
