Even with all the rain in the area over the last 2-3 weeks, the course was in very good condition. However the pace of play was horrible. After waiting for almost every shot, when we arrived at the ninth (par 5) tee, there were five groups waiting to tee off. This after another par 5 on the previous hole. Isn't this the rangers job to see this doesn't happen?

This course was in excellent condition and the staff was very helpful on how the conditions of the greens were in and how to approach your shots as well. I will definitely be playing this course in my rotation of places to play and recommend this place to others.

Pets is a nice track. Only issue this time of year is that they have aerated the greens.....and the old school greens are what makes this course fun. It was like putting on a mine field the day we played. Suggest waiting until next year to play Pets when the greens are in better shape. Charging $32 was pretty steep......course is worth $20/$25 at best with current conditions. That being said best maintenance I've see at this place in several years.......with some very challenging up hill par 5's and par 4's. At all costs don't get above the hole on the 9th and 18th......guaranteed 3 putt or even a 4 putt.

Booked tee time through golf now. Got a great deal that made the day inexpensive. Played 18 with a cart. My 14 year old son and I finished in under 4 hours. He scored his first birdie with a 70 yd wedge shot. He was ecstatic!! Can't wait for tryouts at the HS next week, he's ready!!
