“Frustrating golf course”
Reviewed June 6, 2013

On Wednesday, June 5, 2013 at 8:36am I played 18-holes of golf with 2 friends at Rich Valley Golf ($24 including electric cart). I found the 10-year old course, red tees rating 68.3/slope115, frustrating: don't believe I could ever shoot a score below 100 there, with too many lost balls. The majority of shots have to be accurately placed: you have to hit the green on par 3s; avoid tall grass wetland areas and water reservoir in front of tees and greens; and avoid lateral hazards and out of bounds-woodland areas, sand areas, and cornfields. It was difficult to find the poorly marked holes. Play started on #10 that you take the cart tunnel under Rich Valley Road to reach. The score card had wrong yardage. The noise was annoying from trailer trucks on Interstate 81, along 6 holes, as close as 25 yards at some places. The bent grass greens were dry and fast; the fairways were in poor condition; and there were swarms of bugs in the air.

Nolo's is the area's best hidden secret! The staff is friendly and the atmosphere is great! The is always changing and the menu specials are always the one to pick! Nolo puts his heart and soul into the business and it is nice to support such a hard working family! Can't loose with this one!
