This is a very painful review for me to write. I LOVE this course; however, it's in the worse shape I've ever seen it! Every fairway--and I mean every fairway--was burned out. I was so surprised by this I ended up taking some pictures on the back (the par 5 #14)...the 1st picture is just past the tee boxes at the start of the fairway, the 2nd is in the middle of the fairway, and the 3rd is where my ball landed in the middle of the fairway on my second shot--the only green being a splotch of crabgrass! The greens on the back were in better shape than those on the front. The back, at least, were somewhat dry and rolling pretty true. The front greens were wet, scruffy, and riddled with spike marks because of how soft they were. I was very disappointed with the course today. The good news is 1) they only charged us $39, and 2) the staff, as always, is very welcoming and engaging. I will definitely go back, but not until next year. I don't know why they are having such problems with the browning, but it's just aesthetically unpleasing and not up to the standards I have come to expect from the Links at Gettysburg.

Had a coupon for $59/player on a holiday...a good deal! The course was wet--having rained the night before and off and on showers during our round--but the course was not overly wet. Of course, it was puddling in some of the low spots, but the fairways drained nicely and the greens were amazingly fast for as much rain as they've had. As well, the rough was brutal, as it was long and holding the moisture. Only a few bunkers had water in them--most were raked and decent to play out of (although some had little pebbles/small rocks in them). As always, the staff was welcoming and personable, and the food on the turn is always good at the outside grill. The course overall was in good shape and, even for cart path only, we moved around the course in good time.

I really like this course--layout, care of landscaping and aesthetics, diversity (red rocks, elevation changes, variety of holes), attention to details of grounds and customer service. However, I was a bit disappointed in the condition of the course. Today was my first time playing the Links this year and I was surprised that the fairways had some dry/brown spots and A LOT of unfilled divots in the fairways. It was so bad, some divots weren't even pressed back down--grass was uprooted and standing on edge, and on more than one fairway. We, golfers, have to be good stewards of the courses and should be repairing the damage we cause. Due to the fairways and the bunkers (hard and like concrete), I had to rate this a 3 overall. The rack rate is $78 which is overpriced for the conditions. However, we paid $61 which is more reasonable, but I've played courses in much better condition for less money. The good news is I know they will get this course back into shape, but with the hot weather still ahead of us it may take them a while. The staff is always very nice and welcoming, so I'll definitely be back...it just might be September, though.

My previous review from May still stands. The only thing I will add is that the bunkers still need work. They look nice with the red sand, but the majority are still a little sand with lots of rocks and hard pan. However, the pace was better. We were about 15 minutes late getting off, but were able to keep moving and finished in 4 hrs. 20 mins. Good Labor Day Special of $50 anytime on Sat/Sun/Mon. Great course! Still one of my favorites.

Beautiful Memorial Day and Links of Gettysburg is in great shape (other than the GUR on #10). The Fairways are in nice shape, as are the greens--although pin placements were challenging and the greens fast. Couldn't give the overall rating a 5 because 1) the bunkers are horrendous with no sand and only hard dirt and pebbles, and 2) the pace of place was 30 minutes longer than their time chart on the cart (cart states 4 hrs 20 mins and it took 4 hrs. 50 mins). Even though saw the marshall twice, didn't seem to be monitoring or helping to speed play. Had a coupon for $47 w/cart, so was a beautiful day, great weather, and the course in great shape, so I'll let the slow play and bunkers go...for now.

Course seems to be getting a lot of play and shows it (like most courses near the end of the summer season), but greens are still in nice shape and are about as fast as any in the area. Very tough course.

Was greeted by a friendly starter who arranged everything and had me ready to go by the time I returned from the desk at the pro shop. He got us out early ahead of a threesome so we wouldn't wait. The fairways were very nicely maintained. Looks like there were some places that had collected water, then hit with sun/heat and were burned as a result. The teeboxes were a little uneven, and it seems people have no idea what a divot repair tool is. However, these were mostly minor inconveniences, and I had a most enjoyable round at a great course with a fantastic layout that is well maintained. As a side note, the bunkers I found myself in were not nearly as bad as what previous players noted. It was decent, playable red sand and not clay, a most unique feature. Forced carries abound, enjoy this great course!

The course was in good shape, especially the tees and greens. The fairways looked great, but some were a tad wet and the grass didn't seem to have strong roots so big divots were the norm. The bunkers had very little sand...most just clay. However, this layout is still a nice track. Only two issues...on the cart it states "4 minutes for the turn." There is no way you can stop and get food quickly as the staff can't handle orders for a foursome. It took us 15 minutes because they were struggling. Secondly, it was a 5 hr round, which is ridiculous for this course. I know the 1st Tuesday of the month is Ladies Day for $40, but what I could see it wasn't the ladies holding things up! With the Tee Time Book, weekdays are $40 and seniors are $37 (M-Th). Definitely a bargain.

Second Sunday in a row here and second straight 5-hour round. They obviously don't care, not a marshall to be found anywhere. Saw the cart girl on the 2nd hole and she told us it was last call, she was going home (about 2:30pm).

Despite service being pretty non-existent the course is great and continues to be in excellent condition. Very fast greens today. One complaint: the bunkers are pretty much like hitting off cement, they need fresh sand on top of the red Pennsylvania clay the currently contain.

Even though the back nine beats me up every time, I love this course. No two holes the same (well, #13 and #14 require much the same tee shot, but one is a par 4 and the other par 5 so from there on the strategy differs). Also a nice mix of birdie opportunities especially on the front nine (par 5 #4 and two short par 4's, #1 and #8).

The back nine is another story. I've played this course in 36/48-84 and it's very difficult to shoot as good as score on the back as you did on the front. (I did manage it today, by being terrible on the front side). The gauntlet is from #13 though #17. Get through those 5 holes in 5 over and you've really done something. At least you get to finish up with a birdie hole (you could even call it an eagle hole - I've gotten one there and usually someone in my group gets a good shot at reaching the green in two) in #18.

Very pretty setting among rolling hills of southern PA, nice outdoor grill at the turn with a couple of good specials (BBQ sandwich was excellent). One gripe - range balls not included, unusual at upscale courses, and what they had for sale was basically 5 bucks for a bag of about 20 balls. Come on Gettysburg, if you're an upscale course you don't try to make money on the range, you make it into a feature that draws repeat customers back.

Another gripe - despite the presence of a few course marshalls, we were stuck behind a line of 4 foursomes that just wouldn't keep pace. At one point we're on #13, where the course goes out to #15, turns and comes back to the clubhouse, and saw nothing but empty golf course across the lake from us. Later a foursome appears on the 17th tee, they have gotten at least two holes behind. As I said I saw marshalls on the course. They should have the guts to walk up to a group like that and give them one warning, catch up or they'll be moved up a hole. Five hour rounds are unacceptable at upscale courses like Gettysburg.

The course is in good shape. Fairways and tee boxes are green and well maintained.
The greens were lightning fast and still soft enough to stick a ball.
Staff was good as usual. Food is good.
With that said. I do not like the course personally and I can't figure out why.
I would recommend this course to others.

For the first time in playing here since they opened I am disappointed with the conditions. I do realize this is the middle of november,but temps have been mild and the course was in bad shape.Tee markers have not been moved in who know's how long,cups were not changed,nothing had been mowed,standing water in a few bunkers.You also cannot use a rangefinder due to no prisms on the flagsticks(they retail for about 20$ a piece)I fortunately got a great deal off golfnow or I would still be steaming.I have played here a lot and this is the worse shape the golf course has ever been in, I hope it's the transition into the offseason and not a sign of what's to come for this is truly a great golf course.

I was excited about playing this course for the first time. However, it is not "pristine" as I expected.
The tee boxes were a bit shabby with a lot of divots.
Tee box markers were inconsistently placed, as we played with seniors who were placed forward with the ladies tees.
The fairways also have what seems to be an unusual amount of divots. The rough was fairly high with some dead areas and muddy patches. The traps were a little hard and coarse but very well groomed on the edges. At this time the greens still show aeration effects. They are very sandy and a little bumpy but true.
The staff all around were exceptional. The food was very good. Carts and cart paths were ok. Overall the course layout is very nice. The landscaping and hardscaping are excellent. Be accurate or be in trouble.
Not the best course in the area but I would recommend to anyone.
Prices are not unreasonable in the fall $40.00 for weekday.

With the Tee Time and Waggle books, we played for $43 with cart. They put us out 20 minutes earlier to provide us an opportunity to finish before their shotgun start tournament scheduled for the afternoon. The course was extremely wet--standing water all over the place. The only area dry was the greens. But, as usual with Gettysburg, the fairways and tee boxes are in great shape and will be much more playable once it dries up a little. All the bunkers were more like a water hazard, but they were pumping them out as we worked our way around the course. This is a great course, interesting layout, and the rough can be punishing. If the course had been less wet, I would have rated it overall excellent.

As you probably have read the other reviews,Links at Gettysburg is one of the nicest layouts around. The staff here is very helpful and courteous,course conditions are all but perfect for public golf( I play a private club most of the time and Links is almost as pristine just gets more play). This is just a great expierience all the way around the board...while your at it check out the other Raspberry Trail courses.

What more can I add to the reviews. This is one of the best courses in the Mid- Atlantic area. Even with all of the heat this course is in great condition. A great course to play and visually impressive too. $43.00 with the tee time book is a bargain. Do yourself a favor and try this course. You will not be disappointed. I can't wait to play again.

The course was in excellent condition--fairways thick and lush, landscaping beautiful with flowers and high grasses, and greens cut and rolled. Good pace of play (and we followed a tournament that was just finishing up), and the staff was courteous and helpful. My only complaint is that the cart paths need some repair, but it wasn't a big detraction. I haven't played the course in 5 years, and it was in great shape.

Course is still in great shape even though it has been dry for about 10 days. Staff is friendly and very helpful. The tees are a little beaten up in some places but the groundskeepers are moving the tees around to avoid problems with this. I still love the track.

This is outstanding course from any aspect. Greens, traps, fairways, tee boxes, and rough are all in excellent condition. There is a reasonable priced patio grill snack bar that has an excellent breakfast menu as well a lunch menu. The Hamburgers are particularly good. Course is a little pricey but they are currently running an excellent senior rate. In addition to everything else the scenery is fantastic.

We decided to take a trip up to PA to check out the course we have been hearing such great things about. The trip took about 70 minutes from Baltimore and it was definitely worth drive. The course is spectacular on all accounts. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the course, the design of the holes are challenging and scenic, and the conditions were near perfect. The Links at Gettysburg is officially my new favorite course! I can't wait to go back.

All I can say is "WOW". The Links has everything you want out of a golf course --- challenging holes, great conditions, fun design, awesome scenery, and a grill at the turn firing up burger and hot dogs. My biggest knock is that I only saw the cart girl once the entire round. Tee boxes were fine, but need some attention, and the greens were thick and slow. Still, it was one of the most enjoyable rounds I've ever had and I can't wait to get back.

This is the best value in the Baltimore region. I can't say enough about this course. The fairways and greens are always in peak condition and the service and professionalism of the staff is unmatched. This is the course to play if you like thick rough, long holes, breathtaking views. The course is only a few mile s from the Mason Dixon line just above Taneytown. If you want to play this course get there soon because it's next to impossible after the season kicks in to gear. This is a MUST PLAY COURSE...

This was my first time playing here. It is truly an awesome golf course. The sheer beauty of the course and surrounding countryside almost makes you forget that your here to play golf. If you are directionally challenged this is not the course for you. Most tee shots require a pretty straight hit. I found it to be a fair but challenging course. We played the first 9 holes with Woody who was a course employee. He was extremely helpful to us by pointing out the various pitfalls of certain holes.The only negative comment that I had was the condition of the bunkers arouind the greens. They were were mainly dirt and about an inch deep.Very hard to hit a good shot out of. But overall it was a great course.

Course is tough but fair. Sand lacking in some traps makes playing even tougher. Lack of sand is the reason I did not give course better rating. Playing this for $75 in present conditions is a bit excessive. I paid on special for $ 42.

The course was in great shape this early in the season. The greens are very slow right now but that won't last for long. The course is pretty tough with a very cool layout. It is well worth the 90 minute drive from Baltimore.
