Description

Larkhaven is an older course with a laid-back atmosphere. This course and Charles T Myers (about 5-10 mins away) are two of the friendliest courses around town for beginners. The course features tree-lined, rolling terrain and has its share of creeks and ponds. It often plays more difficult than its rating, at least until you get used to the nuances of each hole. The rates here are among the most reasonable in town.

Notes

This course is scheduled to close in the Fall of 2018 and will be developed. Some of the changeover work has already started and several holes are affected. If you liked this course, plan one more round to say goodbye.

B-Man's Take

The course is challenging and the layout can be fun. With its lower fees, it can be a great value. Beware, however, you do get what you pay for in terms of green and fairway conditions. There are many likeable holes for me on this course because each one is so unique. You start on a short, drive-able par 4 with an elevated green. The 9th hole is par 3 over water with the tee boxes a hundred feet above the green. The 17th hole is a par 5 that rolls downhill, then has a final approach over a pond. A few holes have teeth, like the long, dogleg right par 4 #4 with an elevated green. The dogleg left par 4 #10 has well-positioned fairway bunkers and a creek protecting the green.

    "Below average"

    Larkhaven is not good. I will leave it at that. Luckily, the price is very cheap, but do not expect anything good here other than friendly service.

    "Bad, stay away"

    As I understand they are closing down the course at the end of this season, there is still is no excuse. After reading comments that the course has significant construction throughout, I followed up by calling into the club house to hear first hand. The staff did not fully describe how bad the construction actually is. There is some type of pipeline being run through the entire course almost toughing every other hole. This mud path is 20ft across and extremely affects holes 1,10,11,12,18 to the point of being un-playable. Needless to say I will not be back, and I would think the course would deeply discount their prices due how bad these conditions are. I use to really enjoy this course, it sucks they are closing.

    "Worth playing"

    I'm giving it 3 stars because the greens are in excellent shape. They are digging sewer lines in through much of the course, so several holes are affected. There are ditches and netting/tarps across # 1 Fairway, #10 end of fairway, beginning of 12th hole (tee boxes are pushed up); 17 in front of the pond and 18 is now a par 3. Some of the bunkers had hard clay/dirt in them instead of fluffy sand. Luckily it was only $25 to play on a Sunday. Any more than that it would not be a very good value. Staff is always friendly, however the dress code is severely relaxed. Jeans, t-shirts and even a flannel shirt was spotted.

    It looks as if Larkhaven will soon go the way of Eastwood, Crystal Creek, Charlotte Golf Links, and other former courses that are now housing developments:
