Maybe best just a bit worn out. I've played this course for years and the price goes up while quality isn't quite as solid as near by course that are cheaper.

So let me tell you about this course and it's staff. I was very excited to play this course with my buddies. We went to go to the practice range and they said where do you think you are gojng. I said to the practice range. They replied well did you pay for balls. I said yes we showed the other starter. He said did you pay for golf too? I felt so disciminated against. No one was friendly at this place. Just a horrible experience and the course itself was below average and significantly over priced. I will never go back nor recommend it. The staff was horrible and that starter needs to learn basic customer service and how to speak to people.

This is the second year that we have played this course and this year is better than last (which was great as well). Pace was perfect...never felt rushed or held up. Compared to other "premium" courses we played, Jac was in a class above when it came to conditions.

Looking forward already to returning!

Fairway and green condition is excellent. Except the course is very busy, there are tournament at the west course in the morning and at the east course in the afternoon. We booked at 8.08am and the starter told us there is some mix up. It should be 8.20am. He told us to go to putting green and come back in 15 minutes. But we came back a couple minutes late, he is very grumpy because he told us he has already sent two players at the first tee to wait for us.I guessed he is very stressed out because of tournament.

We are glad to hear you enjoyed the conditions of the golf course. While we don't have tournaments every weekend there are times when you will encounter an outing during your round. However, it's not acceptable for any of our staff members to be "grumpy" and we will be sure to address this situation directly. Thank you for bringing it to our attention.

As a single I was paired up with a 3 some. A local guy who played here before and husband and wife who were 1st timers. The pairing was fine and we were encouraging to each other. The course was as I remembered it, fair, challenging, and in great shape. The front nine was relaxing and stress free.I ordered lunch at #9, picked it up at the turn, ate quickly before #10 and got to the back 9. Once on the back 9, the Ranger started following us for 6 holes, not noticing the 4 some of poor hacks in front of us slowing us down. Otherwise a great round on a Classic course. Keep it up
