    Nice course. How ever not friendly to veterans.
    I would think in a community that is 25% veterans they would encourage us to be members.
    To bad , I wont be back.

    I am a long time golfer with a great love for the game. I have not devoted my time enough competitively to earn a handicap rating, but, I estimate I'm at about a twelve. Like all of us, if I could play more often that number would improve dramatically. And, although I have played every course in Southern Oregon and several more around the state and elsewhere, I still come back to Laural Hills because it is truly a great challenge course! It's simply a small nine cut out of the woods. It could have been placed anywhere. But, you will overestimate your ability on this course. You can go find good scores at the big courses and expensive courses, but, I tell now, this course will teach you to respect the small course. I've walked away many times wondering why I can't come away from this course with scores as good comparatively as a full size course. As golfers, we can too easily get used to a certain kind of course, or one specific course. And, as you may know, as soon as you experience playing in a windy venue such as Bandon, you realize you have to change your game and in doing so, you can't rely on your go-to strengths. You're forced to adapt new ones. I don't know about you, but normally, I have to pay a lot more for that kind of experience or instruction. You will have to use knock-down shots and stingers as in windy conditions; The trees are the obstacle most of the time here; and at times it's almost tantamount to using trick shots to not get tangled up in them. The Golf Channel's, The Big Break could use this place for some of its' challenges or at lease practice for the contestants! You will have to be accurate with both direction and distance or face loosing your ball, period, similar to links golf. You will have to shape your shots left and right at different distances or face laying up. You will be forced to step to different clubs for shots because a certain trajectory angle and spin will become crucial. Rather than grabbing a seven or a nine and swinging away, you'll have to close the face on a four or five, come right to left across the top of the ball for top-spin, bump and run the ball to the green, or out of the woods. And, there will be more time using irons off the tees than you're used to. But, again, that's a good thing. We all know the pro's use irons and lower woods off the tees more than novices do. As novices, we shouldn't fall into the trap of the ad hominem use our 310's and 460's every time we stand in a tee box hoping for the best. There is only one or two times you might be justified inviting Big Bertha to the party at Laural. My advise: You'd better hit the fairway. If you've ever played pinball, and if you've ever heard the echo of wood being chopped in the forest, combine those sounds and imagine your golf ball traveling from tree to tree, slowly becoming more distant, like falling down a well, until.. silence. Tip: Keep your Pro-V1's in your bag. Yes, you'll learn the rules regarding taking a drop if you don't know them by now, along with the crushing realization that your score card is causing you immense reason for a denial of reality. Not to worry. Use Laurel Hills as a great practice course on your own, and as a warm-up course before playing the big course with friends whose opinion you care about. Your game will be markedly improved with the crash course you've taken at Laurel Hills. Just as well, bring a friend or two to LH who fancy themselves low shooters.. and don't say a word. If they scoff that it's not a big course, just tell them you heard it's a course that offers great fun and challenge for even the very best golfers.. "Unless you think you wouldn't do very good at such a small course", tell them. This will get their goat. Just play, don't let-on, and at the end, see what they say about it. They'll be in that same daze, wondering how they could have shot over 100 for the first time in years. You'll probably have beat them even if they're better than you if you've played LH a few times and gained new abilities. This is guaranteed fun. The most amazing part is the value. Yes, you'll be amazed at the price, especially compared to the value of the lessons learned every time you play at Laurel Hills. You wife cannot get mad at you, nor your pocketbook either. It's just a great price for the golf you get! There are two big very well kept putting greens, one with traps and a nice covered driving range too with a wonderful view. And, they don't kick you off of it when it rains or it gets too late. The late afternoon sun shines warm across green back-lit grass. The shady oaks and laurels whoosh gently in the breeze. The range flags flicker and the ball machine clanks and rattles as it fills peoples baskets. And, the occasional sound of some ones errant drive echoes in the forest causing you to smile at Laurel Hills Golf Course. "Fore!"
