|Everyone is welcome to play golf at Knollwood Fairways & Midland Country Club and for residents that live in the active adult community that abuts the course (Knollwood Village) all they have to do is walk out their back door.|

The 9-hole course can be played in most cases in an hour and a half, and is described as "friendly and challenging" on its website.
