Course Review and Comments

This is a place to golf, and to golf only. If you are looking for a country club experience look elsewhere. Make a tee time, pay the greens fees, enjoy some fantastic, smooth golfing, then go home and relax because it's not really the kind of place to sit down and enjoy yourself after a round of golf. The food is overpriced, their beer selection is vast but boring, and the staff is borderline creepy in how overly nice and perky they try and be when all i want is to crack a beer and relax after my round. They also recently switched up their staff which has really just made things worse. The course is great. I had a fantastic time with 2 other guys on a tuesday afternoon, the greens are smooth and fast, the fairways are a little rough but honestly for that area of WNY they are some of the best. No matter what day you visit, the course itself looks brand new which is really the high point. I would recommend this course and i would go again ( i actually try and go to Dande Farms at least once a week when i can, the prices for golf are very good!) However this also depends on the kind of experience you are looking to have. If you want to actually RELAX during and after your round, Arrowhead is not far away and they exceed in every area Dande does not. If you are looking to play a good round of golf and go home, You really wont' find anything better than dande farms in most of western New York. Just don't go into it expecting much more than that, you'll leave disappointed.

Course Design Rating
Course Design Comments it's not often you find such a well thought out course with no sand traps. hole 3, 5, 13, and 17 were the highlights of the day
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Rating
Course Greens/Fairways Condition Comments their groundskeeper has recently injured himself which is no secret, but his staff is doing a fantastic job of keeping it 'up to par' i understand they are getting outside help as well. I say, whatever keeps it as smooth and gorgeous as it is now keep it up!
Course Service Rating
Course Service Comments this is where i have to put the hammer down...The woman at the desk was nice but over-friendly. The staff hovers to the point it is uncomfortable. Everybody has these huge fake smiles which is almost along the lines of a cheesy horror movie feel. If you are going to golf here, steer clear of the clubhouse at all cost.
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments The clubhouse is basic, but gets the job done. They have food inside and outside, but i don't recommend getting the food at all. I have golfed here many times over the years and the food sits out for hours, and even still, it takes forever for a pre-cooked cheeseburger. if i wanted an almost 5 dollar cheeseburger that has been sitting out for hours i'd go to McDonalds. The bathroom is small and has an odd stench.
