We played both of the Homestead courses. The old course(the one on property) is a little more forgiving. It is more open and a lot easier to putt. I enjoyed reading the history plaques placed throughout the course. Both courses are quite hilly so even...More

We played on a Saturday morning. Beautiful and well-maintained course albeit with some significant road noise on a few holes. Two issues that need to be address. One, there were no golf marshals riding around. So, when the foursome behind us hit into us twice,...More

Great old track if not much of a challenge for single handicap golfers. The hole distribution is pretty unique..6 each of Par 3's, 4's and 5's. Beautiful vistas. Great golf staff. Been playing a version of this old course since I was a boy...so you...More

Played today in VSGA tournament out here and played the back tees in the wind. Having never been here before didn't really know what to expect. When you pull up and see the homestead resort it's impressive. The range and practice green were nice. We...More

Every time I play the Old Course, I get a great feeling - it's design is very unique - 6 of each: Par 3's, Par 4's and Par 5's. Coupled with great friends to travel with, and playing a round of golf - it's tough...More

Like The Cascades Course, The Old Course has beautiful mountain holes. There are some houses and condos on the course, but not very many. The holes are interesting, and not repetitious at all. It is a challenging course, and has tees for every level golfer....More

If staying at the Homestead, I'd recommend getting the golf package instead of paying a la carte. For a couple, it's a bargain. We'd played the Old Course 9 years ago and left with mediocre impressions. It's obvious that the Omni and Clubcorp before them...More

Corse is in awesome shape! The greens are a little slower. The beer guy comes around once and has nothing but snacks. The food by #9 has been shut down so pack food or starve! A wonderful day for golf! Tee placements were good, weather...More

This is a double whammy. 1. The Old Course had the oldest original tee(1st hole) still used and/or in existence in the United States 2. The Homestead Hotel (and surrounding golf course grounds) is celebrating it's 250th anniversary this year.
