Review Summary: I tried Falcon Ridge for the price, but after playing it realized it was not worth it. I played it in 2010 and 2012 and was told there were going to be some nice changes to clean the place up, especially the back 9. The overall condition is a "D". Bogs, dips in fairways, dead areas, ant hills galore! Don't even waste your time on the back nine unless you are Robin hood. You can be in fairway and have trees in your way to the green - seriously guys - c'mon!
Conditions: The greens were long and slow the first time I played and are now just slow, bumpy and hard. Not much grass on most of the tees and what is there is poor quality. The greens are old school greens built on swamp land. Flat, no elevation, small.
Scenery: My partner and I enjoy the outdoors and wildlife, so seeing some woods and swampland was kind of nice. We saw a deer out there and muskrat! The condition of the course actually took away from the natural beauty.
Layout: Layout is ok. The back is almost an iron only course with the exception of the two par 5s, especially for men. Definitely not a championship course!.
Services: The staff was friendly with the exception of the older short guy. Both times I was there didn't seem too friendly.

Review Summary: Botton-line, if cost to play is your primary concern, this place is great. If quality of the course is your primary concern, look elsewhere.
Conditions: In my humble opinion this course is a cow pasture with "greens" and "fairways" on it. The fairways are very crude and heavily laced with weeds, pits, soft sod, and general poor conditions. The greens are pretty much the same, and the slowest greens I have EVER played.
Scenery: Not bad, a few holes are quite nice actually.
Layout: The front nine is fine, your basic golf course. The back nine, starting with hole #11, gets pretty nasty. Hole #11 should be shorted and made into a reasonable Par 3 or lengthened and made into a short par 4. Hole #12 is ridiculous, as are a few others on th back nine. It does finish with a very nice par 5.
Services: Great!! Prices are awesome, everybody is friendly.
