If you like playing an overcrowded golf course with slow and untrue greens this the place....you need a sledgehammer to get the ball to the hole...best advise is to stay away from this goat track

Amazing great winter conditions! Greens were a little long but beats the other local greens some of which are bare! I was checked in once before by a gray haired guy with a mullet who was very rude, arrogant and non professional looking in his appearance and customer service. Brian check me in this time at the pro shop , he was very courteous, knowledgeable about the course and professional. This is an excellent municipal course with a fantastic grill.

Typical day at the Muni, grumpy entitled golfers behind and in front us, impatient and expecting to play a round with a course full of 4-somes in 3 hours. Lighten up, its the MUNI.

I made the tee time on GolfNow.com. When I arrived the tee time had been given to a foursome. They could have had another staff member working in the pro shop based on the backup at the counter.

I have played this course before on several occasions and have never found it to be in the best of shape. That's why it's a "MUNI" so I know better now. You get what you pay for but in this case I have played much much better courses for a third less. In fact the posted price in the pro shop was 9 dollars cheaper that what I paid because I booked on GolfNow.com. So burn me once.....I won't be back!

This is the first course on golf now that wouldn't honor the tee time that I bought. They made us go out over 30 min later because the tee time was in the middle of a weekly blitz that they have. There shouldn't even be tee Times available on golf now if they have scheduled tournaments. There were nothing but fivesomes all around us (at least 10) and the pace was about six hours. After 2.5 hrs we made it to the 7th hole where there were 13 people including our threesome on the tee box And 10 people on the hole playing this par five. 23 people on one hole. It was unbelievable. Never book a tee time here on Fridays or Sundays after 11:30 am. You will never be able to finish

Got to the course early for a 12:45 tee time. Lots of people milling around 1st tee. Went to starter at 12:38 and was told that a skins league had priority and that my tee time would be delayed at least 1 hour. We jumped in on a gap at the 10th hole, fortunately no one cares about that either. This course gets overbooked regularly and because it is publicly owned many of the staff act as though this is your problem. Starter makes no effort to pair twosomes into foursomes to improve speed of play. Fun course but really poorly managed.
