    Re: Best Local Golf Courses

    What would you compare Honey Creek to?

    My faves, just public.
    1. Blue Top Ridge
    1. Harvester
    3. Legacy
    4. TCI
    5. Jester

    I'm hoping Jester can bounce back after a rough year last year. When it is in top shape I think it's the best value out there...

    Re: Best Local Golf Courses

    Bos Landen is another one that really needs to bounce back from a bad year...

    Last year is the only time I have played Jester, so maybe that is why it didnt make my top 5. Im also looking forward to seeing what Otter is like after the changes.

    Honey creek is located just south of Boone in Ledges State Park. They just built a back nine a couple of years ago and it was coming along pretty nice last time I played there (Fall 2007 I think?). It's a surprisingly challenging course for a good price - I would definitely recommend at least checking it out.

    Re: Best Local Golf Courses

    1) Lake Panorama---made alot of upgrades, lowered rates for this year
    2) TCI---Bring a couple sleeves of balls
    3) River Valley---My only sub-par round
    4) Legacy---never go on a windy day

    5) Honey Creek---needs some work on the back 9 but is the best price for your money. They used to have a 2 for 1 special one day.
