Pace of play extremely slow, player etiquette lacking, balls being driven into foursome from behind after waiting to approach greens, slow players would not allow faster players to play through. Course in poor shape with sand traps poorly maintained.

First 9 was ok. On the second 9, you cannot see the flag ever. It slows the pace considerably. The fairways are good. The lay out is awfull and the green are hard to put.

I love playing this course and was excited to take my friends who were visiting from up north to play here. Well we got here and the start gave one of the guys grief for bringing a cooler. Good thing he did! He said a cart girl "Loren" would be around multiple times for any drinks we needed. She never showed up!! It was 90 deg. out. The rough and parts of the fairway needed serious attention. Looks like a lack of watering. Hope it is better next time but for this round not worth the money!

If you are a local and can get a cheap rate under $35 and just want to hit s few balls then the course is perfect. Now if you are on vacation and only have one fay to golf go somewhere else.

The course is ok. What let's it down is the state of the fairways. They are scruffy and weedy on almost every hole. However, the greens are in very good condition

Very few bunkers have rakes available yes I know some players are lazy but having rakes give them no excuses

Would I play the course again - yes but if nothing is done soon to the fairways I would say a no!

Nice course but like most other courses in the area, very dry with sparse grass on fairways and poor tee boxes. Greens are good. Course layout is very nice . Hope it rains there soon or at least water the course. Several other courses better but minimally more expensive - Highlands Reserve and much more green Providence.

Those 4 star givers out there must like playing golf on "concrete"! There is no grass on fairways and the course is so dry, you can't hit a ball. Management must be very stingy because you know they don't water the course. Too bad, it has great views and challenging lay outs but no course!!

Nice track, Greens receptive, SAND TRAPS LEAVE A LOT TO BE DESIRED. Some traps impossible to get out. Faces of bunkers should be rebuilt and redesigned. Sand should be replaced with ANYTHING but what is in them now. Fairways need to be reseeded.

Played the course several years ago, much younger then. Was very nice then. Now, Very little grass, most fairways slant to the right or left, ball rolls from off the fairway. Deep sand traps almost impossible to play. Pace was extremely slow, took almost 3 hours to play the first nine holes. 10th tee, had two groups waiting to tee off. We decided to leave after looking at a possible six hour round of golf. We left after nine holes, don't see us returning there anytime soon. We usually can 18 holes in 3 hours. Sad.

Wow! Lots of slope and views. Greens were fast. Staff was good. We got there about an hour before our tee time and the starter jumped us out in front of a group thar was not ready to go. That was nice. The only bummer was no beverage cart on a full course and after nine holes you don't come past the clubhouse.

Agree with recent reviews , this is a target course with a good layout for the most part. Because of the challenging layout , player must know the course, otherwise wrong club selection will occur. There are many blind shots .

Corurse condition is average. Greens were good, fairways were average , but sketchy in a number of places, tees below average. Players with prior experience told me it was in the best condition they had seen, so apparently the course is trying.

Sand traps were in poor condition , often without rakes- so we played smooth and place.

Pace of play was OK. We played the first nine behind a shotgun start and there was some backup, but not terrible. After they finished there was a Marshall on the course encouraging pace of play. But the number of hazards, rough terrain, can slow play if people spend too much time looking for balls.
