I was met by a cheerful outside ops person who cheerfully loaded our bags on carts. Had a bit of a cranky lady in the pro shop checking us in. The fairways had recently been aerated, so they were soft, and got no roll. When we got to the first green, it was terrible. Mostly sparse grass, with clumps of weeds. Aiming was useless, because the clumps of grass changed the balls direction multiple times each putt. It is a fun layout tp play, it's too bad the course conditions have gotten worse each of the last 3 times I have played it. We also played as a twosome, and we caught a foursome on the third tee. We waited every shot until they finished the front 9. Luckily they quit after 9 or we would have had a near 5 hour round. We played the back 9 in an hour an 15 min. No rangers.....

Just finished a round here and was mortified at the condition of the course, The greens were so bad we had to implement an automatic 2 putt rule. This is very disappointing as a local resident because they used to have some of the best greens in the area. Will not be back

Greens were terrible.They spot sanded to try and temporarily smooth them , but it was poor. They never mentioned the greens being in such poor condition at booking or check in. The fairways were fair to ok. Could be a great course with a little love & Care.

Many fairways had patches of dead grass and several bare areas. Almost every green was under repair with a combination of sand and seed occupying large portions of the green making putting unreliable

Maybe it was the time of year but, the course was not in good shape

We were very disappointed in the condition of the course. We wait until April to play when prices go down. We can play an executive course a few miles away with better greens and less money.

I am sure with the great layout and area at one time was a great course, however now the greens are terrible, fairway weeds, just needs some one that cares.

Have played this course several times in the past and enjoyed it. However today was really disappointing. The greens were very poor - uneven , many bare patches and patches covered in sand . There were several very wet areas in the fairways - was wary of taking the cart in some areas in case we got stuck.

The course was very very busy - a junior tournament was in progress. The starter held people back to wait for some people who were late for their tee time meaning that everybody was going out late.

Until we hear that the course has improved we won't be coming back.

This place used to be in great shape and did have some of the best greens in Polk County. They need to remove that moniker from their phone system. What a dump this place was. Greens were in horrendous condition. Weeds growing everywhere. The drink machine behind the 12th green was completely out of drinks. The place was packed but yet had no refreshment cart. The girl in the restaurant had absolutely no interest in being there. If it wasn't a $15 Groupon I'd be asking for my money back.

I have played this course many times; mostly in the summer; when prices are low. It is very well laid out and quite a challenge for the average golfer. I rarely break 100 from the white tees. Still; it is one of my favorite courses. Try it; you'll like it.
