Mayfair was once a 36 hole facility, but 10 years ago or so, they closed the east course to put in homes and condo’s and re-routed 3 new holes onto the east property. The new holes fit nicely with the modern design of the west course.
Common man’s country club comes to mind, the course is in excellent shape, the tees and fairways are well manicured, and the huge undulating greens were pleasantly fast, much better than they were in the 1990’s. This course is a short version of a Windmill Lakes or RT Jones style. The rough is fairly thick, the only detraction is the bunkers are in need of a little tlc and maybe some sand.

The course looks bigger than it really is, for long hitters there are several par 4’s that are reachable and only 1 or 2 that require more than a wedge approach. The new holes are good additions with the par 5 16thamongst the best. Water is found throughout the course and comes into play. A bomb and gouge strategy works well here, not many places on the course you can not escape from.
The hardest hole on the course is the par 4 14th, OB on the left and a pond on the right, with the fairway sloping right is the toughest drive on the course, laying up is a good play here, and leaves you around 180 to the green.
The greens are large and undulating, getting your approach close is sometimes a matter of luck.
Mayfair has a large clubhouse with a nice grill downstairs which serves a free breakfast buffet and lunch buffet 7 days a week for the players. The pro shop is small and does not have much in the way of gear, mostly balls and gloves. They have a nice banquet room and bar upstairs and a pavilion for outings. The course closed its driving range in the remodel, but the old 18thhole is now a pitching range with several greenside bunkers and a huge green. A smaller practice green sits behind #1 tee.
You really can’t go wrong here, a pleasant golf course, play strategic fairways and greens, or bomb it over the bunkers and try to drive the green, either way there is enough trouble to bite you but not so much to frustrate you. The breakfast and lunch is a nice touch.
