I just want to put the 2 star review in perspective - there has been a total overhaul of this course. It's a Tillinghast design (Bethpage, Swope Memorial) and following the redesign is much more in keeping with a 4 star or even 5 star rating. I think it's a wonderful value. Not up to country club level, but a very good muni.
This course is a diamond in the rough! If you can play this course and end up with a decent score, then you are a truly good golfer. A definite "Player's Course", each shot presents you with a different lie. Rarely is there a shot from level ground. The greens are well-kept for a public course, and the price is outrageously reasonable for the layout. My favorite out of the Erie municipal courses, possibly me favorite in the area, and probably the toughest public course in Erie.
If you aren't a golfer who enjoys a challenge, go to Downing. You may want to rent a cart as well. Quite a walk.
I didn't like much. I hated it because it's all brown, and not just cuz of the weather, it's always like that. The course is on like the side of a big mountain or something, almost every hole has a huge sloping fairway. You can hit your drive in the middle and be in the rough after the roll. There is actually one hole, hole #8, i hit my drive to the left side of the fairway right on the rough line, and i got down there and it was in the woods 75 yds right of where my ball hit. That's rediculous no matter what anyone says. I would not reccommend this course to anyone, don't waist your time. Go play courses nearby Erie, like Crab Apple, Overlake, Elk Valley, to name a few.
