Pioneer Creek - Region 2 - Metro
Reviewed by: Mike Kreklow -  Maple Plain, MN. Mike shoots 90s (5/11/12)
Review Summary:  Course is in really nice shape. Greens have healed from an early season aerification. Fairways are in nice shape. Check this one out.
Conditions:  Very good conditions. Aerified 3 weeks ago, but the greens have healed nicely.
Scenery:  Country setting, but still close to city. Watch out for hole 9. The creek takes a big bend that can get you on your second shot if you're not careful.
Layout: I liked the layout. I can pull a shot and not be in the fairway for the next hole.
Services: Nice people.

Review Summary:  The course is in great shape. The greens are healed from last year. Still brown from being dry, overall condition was very good.
Conditions:  Dry, but in great shape for this time of year.

Pioneer Creek - Region 2 - Metro
Reviewed by: Matt -  St Paul, MN. Matt shoots Scratch
Review Summary:  This is a fun course. It's got some throw away holes next to the corn field, but for the most part is well layed out. Typically in great shape, the greens have lots of winter kill still this year. While I would still recommend, I suggest waiting until next year to play. They need to close shop to heal the greens, most are like putting through the dessert.
Conditions:  Usually excellent, in 11 they have significant kill on the green. Weather conditions this summer have not helped, but charging full price when only 1/3 of each green is in playing condition is out of line
Scenery:  Typical- nothing amazing, but not a pasture either.
Layout: Well layed out course, fair no gimmicks.
Services: Good service, nice folks

Pioneer Creek - Region 2 - Metro
Reviewed by:  Nicky Backspin - Watertown, MN. Nicky shoots in the 70s.
Review Summary:  Great course for the price with several unique golf holes. The layout has every type of hole, from open and hilly to tree-lined with water.
Conditions:  Well kept and the country pace gives it low wear. Greens are very good and consistent throughout the course.
Scenery:  Excellent. No houses to look at, nothing but green, green, green.
Layout: A bit of everything. Easy walk considering the elevation changes. Just enough water and trees to make it challenging yet fair. Somewhat forgiving off the tee, but the approach shots need your full attention. Good driving range, too.
Services: The best out there. No uptight ranger or starter, but the pace of play is kept.
