I have played this course quite a few times. This may be the last. It is a decently taken care of course. decent staff.

This is the second time the pace was so behind, service terrible and below par.

Took us almost 5 hours to play, no mention that they dont even have a cart girl on a saturday, and Manager snarked at us for asking for a cooler at the 10th hole. Asking why we didnt grab our own cooler at the beginning as if that was expected and the norm. No marshal to control the pace.

Extremely dissapointed in how this course has been running this past year. which is so sad because we live so close and it is in a nice area.

The course was in very good condition. From the time we walked up, everybody on the staff was helpful and friendly.

The pin placements lead to slower play on a day when folks that probably only play once or twice a year are out there. I'm the worse putter I know, so I don't waste a lot of time, but there were a couple times the group in front of us spent close to 10 minutes on the green. A marshal instead of a greeter, could have reduced on 4 3/4 hour round. I'd play there again.

This course could be so much better. Two things were missing which made the round frustrating. There are very few yardage markers so you must have GPS to find out yardage distances, I don't have one. There is little to no sand in the traps, in fact grass is growing in some of them. On a positive note the pace of play was slightly over 4 hours and it is situated in a location that has some very scenic views. Lots of other courses around in the same price range so I won't be returning here.

If you need to improve your game or just want to play without breaking the bank, this is your place. The thing I like most about this course is there's no houses to accidentally hit on an errant shot.

This course is always well-maintained and provides just enough challenge to make it fun .

Course is in the best shape ever. They are removing the dead trees. New flags and sticks on course and putting green. The range now has flags to aim at. Greens are in excellent shape. They have ordered Pinseekers that will be attached to the flag sticks for an accurate distance. Would like to see the white tee boxes on 3/4 holes put on the appropriate tee box that matches the score card.

Nice little course for the money. Cart paths could use a lot of work for they pretty much dont exist, could use better directional signage for hole locations. Seems like the coure always looks like it is under some kind of construction.

I played this course because it is the cheapest in the area. I did not have my GPS watch and was disappointed to find there were absolutely no visual distance cues or aids on the fairways. No markers or distances on sprinkler heads. I did not "guess" or judge the distances very well at all. The staff was friendly and the fairways and greens were nice.
