This was the first time my foursome played here and we all instantly fell in love with it. It was in great condition, affordable and just a really playable course. It is plenty wide for those who like to spray it from time to time and yet playable for the shorter hitters. Greens were goid sized and in super shape. We all can't wait to play it again. You won't be disappointed.

Kenny Mac is a great municipal course and good course for the money. Course is in great shape, greens were a little slow due to the recent rain, but if cut and rolled they would be great. New course management is doing a great job to improve course and make improvements.

Lacked any signature holes, the course was in excellent shape but not memorable, doubt I'll be back, staff was very friendly, my friend loved it. It was missing character.

I played mid summer. Greens & fairways were well taken care of. Open course. Good value for the money.

Only negative: pace of play is very slow.

Kenny Mac is a good value almost all the time. Good layout but not great. Water on many holes and some longish par 3's. It's a city course and is maintained as such. The course was right in the middle of changing management companies, so it may be better soon.

The staff here was friendly and the pace of play was pretty good. I was a single paired with three other guys and we played in under 4 hours. Some of the fairways have some beat up spots but the greens where in relatively good shape. Would play this course again for the price!

Course was in very good shape considering this time of year. Some fairways had punch areas, however, most pretty good. Greens were also acceptable. Beverage cart was not working, yet the bar provided ice bags. Low rates and a decent pace of play. Will play again soon.

Overall experience was great. I was paired up with a local which was great. Range was not bad. Course was well marked which helped with yardages. We caught up to groups in front of us so pace of play was average. I am replaying this course again. You cannot beat the value.

No real complaints about Kenny Mac. It's your classic muni, so this isn't the most glamorous round of golf, but the course was in decent shape. Greens rolled just fine, sand in the bunkers, and I didn't have any situations where I felt like the turf cost me any strokes. All in all, it's a decent value if you don't want to spend a bunch. Dobson Ranch and Toka Sticks probably a little better, but this was okay too.
