We really enjoyed the layout and it was fairly challenging and the weather was great . the pro shop people were very accommodating and the golf cart attendant very friendly and helpful. Because of the rain the day before the greens had not been mowed so they were a little bumpy and slower than usual but in overview it was a great golfing experience.

Would not go back. Terrible phone manners and when we showed up to play the guy checking us in was not happy we used the Golf Now app because, and I quote, "you probably didn't get charged enough. We were there 25 minutes early and teed of 15 minutes later than tee time. Will never go back.

I had a local gent. recommend this course and thought I would give it a try. First you couldn't beat the price and it was close to the condo I was at. Once on the course I found it to be extremely well taken care of and laid out. some challanging holes some easy..I will be back next year.

The course was in decent shape although showed a lot of play. Bare grounds evident I'm many places. The greens were rough and didn't run true. they either hadn't been mowed recently or not rolled in a long time. The worst was the pace of play and no ranger evident. We waited on every shot. I think with a bit of attention this could become a very good course.

Realizinging the time of year we played I was still dissappointed with the conditions as compared to other courses in the area. Greens were really in bad condition at this course. Lots of overgrowth throughout the greens and bumpy. The price I paid was fair in my opinion but I played other courses this week for the same price and other courses were in a lot better condition. Wouldn't play this course again though!

It was a cold day when we played this course, so that might affect our perspective. Definitely spring conditions. Houses are close by and the course seems very close. But we enjoyed our round.

I shoot mid 80's, my father shoots mid to high 90's. I played the tips and he was off the whites. Not a difficult course but fun and played in under 4 hours. Starter got us off half hour early.

After reading reviews I now question every negative review on GolfNow. First off who cares if there is a ballwasher on every hole, spit on the ball and use a towel. However this course did have ballwashers on 80% of the holes.

I paid $29USD through golfnow and will be back again in the next few weeks as most courses in the area are well north of $50 at this time of year.

Its March, the grass is still dormant, however tees, greens and fairways were quite green and playing great. 2 greens (#1 and #10 oddly enough the first holes of each 9) had some crab grass on them but again its March and probably haven't sprayed for the season yet. It was cut that day and the ball bounced a little more on these 2 greens but overall the rest of the greens were in good shape. Played after 2 days of heavy rain and in 50-60 degree weather and the course was pretty dry but yes some wet spots as expected. Carts were cart path only and this was posted at the bagdrop and the proshop.

Overall a middle of the pack course at a great value. Lots of water, but doesn't come into play too much. Some good fun holes, nothing stupid and no poor layouts. Bunkers had lots of soft white sand, greens were firm but held if you know how to shoot. Lift clean and place due to plugging but expected in this weather.
