This is a really challenging and unique golf course. No two holes are exactly the same. Some parts of the course take you through a wooded area, some are wide open. The Par 5's are long, narrow and, in some cases hilly. The Par 3' are also long with the shortest one at about 175 yards. The front and back nine "closing' holes take you through the woods and up a hill with blind shots to both greens. So you better be playing you best.

Now the bad news. The greens are not as good this year as they were last year. They are rolling about 2 down on the 'Stimp' meter, meaning, if you are used to playing on fast greens (and they certainly were), then you won't like Honey Run right now. The greens are slow.

You can score well at Honey Run if you know where to attack this course. The opening hole is a big dog-leg right Par 4 and a long tee shot is needed to get around the corner. After that you have a big target and can easily start the round with a birdie. However, #2 will eat you up. This short Par 4 has a side hill lie to an uphill approach with a small green surrounded by bunkers. And two make matters worse, a creek crosses the fairway. So hit it too far and you are taking a penalty. Then a narrow, but long Par 5 greats you. The tee shot better be good because the fairway narrows to about 50 yards wide with woods on one side and trees on the other. You must hit three quality shots to reach this 560 yard beauty. Then a 200+ yard Par 3 and another 550+ yard Par 5. Then you hit another wooded area as the next two holes #7 and #8 take you into the forest. Really nice Par 4’s.

On the back, you have more of the same. A really challenging, #13 Par 5 at over 550 yards with a really narrow approach with a hill on the right and woods on the left. Guess which way the hill slopes…towards the woods, you guessed it. Then a drivable Par 4 and then another monster uphill Par 5. Finally you get the #1 handicap, over 400 yard Par 4 with water on the right. Don’t miss that approach shot. You finish with a really nice downhill Par 3 and then the final uphill Par 4 #18 to a blind green. You just can see the green. You can see the flag.

So welcome to Honey Run. Challenging. Unique. But the greens need to be faster. And one other thing, the front nine took over 2 ½ hours to play (because of slow play). Or inexperience. Please, if you want to play this course by all means play and enjoy. But if you are relatively new to golf, you might consider another place (especially on the weekend) when it’s busy. Be kind to the other golfers. You can lose a bunch of balls here.

Haven't played Honey Run for a couple of years and was pleasantly surprised. The course is very green and in great shape. Fairways, with the exception of #6 and #7, were thick and lush. Numbers 6 and 7 were in decent shape, but just had a couple of dirt spots--looks like the Super filled in some holes and getting ready to seed. The greens were very nice--a little on the faster side, which I personally like. The pace was good for the most part, but there was a very slow threesome two in front of us. I asked the Marshall to address and he did--they sped up and the back moved much better. Staff was very accommodating and trying to make it a good experience for everyone. Thanks! My only comment for improvement were the bunkers--it wasn't sand, but rather heavy dirt. Took some getting use to in order to get out of. Finally, they built a bar area in the clubhouse since I've been here last, but we couldn't stay to try it out. The round was $35 in the Tee Time Book for a Saturday after 11:00. Good deal.

Honey run is in good condition today.
The course shows some wear from lots of play. Tee boxes are OK. Fairways are nice and green. Bunkers have good sand and have been cared for. Greens were very good, hard and fast but you can stick with some air under the shot. There were a good amount of ball marks and scuffs but overall very good.
Rangers were out keeping things moving along. Starters were very pleasant. As usual the cart girl and I were the youngest people on the property.
The course could be marked better. Distances are inconsistent and questionable.
I recommend and will play again.

Course is in great shape in spite of heavy rains yesterday. Track is long, so bring your long driver. Greens were fast but perfectgly groomed. Traps had been recently worked so there was loose sand. Most fairways were in perfect shape. The only exception were a couple of fairways had not drained well. Rates are excellent either with or without TeeTime book. Excellent snack bar.

Each hole presents new challenges. No two holes are the same. Really spread out - some sections go through wooded areas, then wide open, with dog legs and blind shots. Really nice Par 5's on the back nine will give long ball hitters an opportunity to do well. Overall, a must play!

Every hole is different and very interesting. Its easy to see why this course hosted the Nike Tour (now web.com tour) years back. The greens are some of the best in South Penn. area. No. 11 gets a little wet during long periods of rain because Honey Run Creek flows alongside the left edge of the fairway and has a habit of flooding. They have completely remolded the clubhouse. A brand new full bar, and back porch await you at the turn. The prices havent changed however, which is nice. One of my Ed Ault favorites.

Good value 25.00 on this day.
Rough is very very thick. Lots of grass clippings and clumps everywhere( bring a wire brush and towel). Fairways are pretty good with some unplayable areas (sloppy wet/tall grass). The pro shop was friendly and fast. Snack shop/grill was a disappointment. Bring your own food.
Club house is nice but feels like an "old folks home". Web site is not updated often/ever.
The greens are fantastic, hard and fast. The overall course design great. Long holes with elevation changes and streams throughout.
I look forward to playing again when things dry out.
I recommend everyone try this course, you will enjoy it.
4 hours 10 minutes on a Tuesday, with a 90 degree rule.

I was pleasantly surprised at what good shape this course is in. I haven't played it for a couple of years, so didn't expect much. The fairways are green and lush, the greens are also completely green and running average speed, and there were very few areas of repair. What a pleasant surprise! The only improvement I would suggest is training for the snack counter staff. She was not very customer oriented, saw us standing there waiting and never waited on us. We eventually left to get food off site. Maybe she was busy, but a simple "be right with you" would have been appreciated. If you plan to play the course--and it's worth your time--pack a lunch and plenty of beverages because you'll get frustrated otherwise.

Course will be in good shape when spring maintenance is completed. Greens had just been aerated and had a lot of sand on them. Fairways and rough was in good shape but very wet from the amount of rain that had fallen in the area. This is usually a very good course at a very reasonanble rate ($20 in the Tee Time book). Staff very cordial and limited snack bar was up and running.

Course is generally in very good condition except for sand traps and fairway #11. Traps had standing water today after heavy rain two days ago. Except for wetness, traps appear to have good sand. Fairway 11 was totally washed out last spring and is almost recovered at this time. Normally a par 4 is is playing as a par 3 (about 130 yards) from temporary tees.

Course is nice layout under new ownership and management. Most greens are in great shape but two have large burnout spots. Only one bad fairway (#11) but it needs major rehab. Traps ar raked clay but management said they would be "resanded" in late June. Good bargain for standard $25 for senior rate.
