For the price, an excellent value. The course was in good shape overall. Greens a little on the slow side, but rolled very true and got a bit faster after some drying out. It was a little wet and sloppy with the recent rains and we had to go 90 degree rule, but that's to be expected. Can't really think of anything to complain about, every staff member encountered was friendly and helpful. Had a good time and finished 18 holes in almost exactly 4 hours.

I really enjoyed playing this course. It is a very challenging course and if you miss the fairway scoring well will be difficult. The course is in the flood plain and any good rain means standing water on parts of the course. The one bad thing I have to say about the course condition are all the ant hills. From any tee box, the fairways are littered with one foot tall ant hills scattered everywhere. A number of times I had to chip out of the trees back into the fairway and hit a random ant hill sending the ball careening from its intended line.

While I like playing the Creeks course, the Lakes course offers a great course for a great value. If you are playing for the first time, be conservative and aim for the 150 stick. There is water or additional trees on a number of holes that you can't see from the tee box.

We golfed in September 2016. This is a municipal course so and it was quite damaged in some floods last year that shut it down for a while. Both 18 hole courses are now fully open! The course is in good shape. They are doing a pretty good job of keeping the fall weed under control. The greens were a bit slow but mostly in good shape. The biggest struggle was with determining the hole layouts since we hadn't played there in a couple years. There are NO pictures on diagrams of the hole at the tee box. There are NO pictures of the holes (even the little ones) on the score cards. There was no GPS. So I motored back to the starter stand to see about a booklet or ANY rendition of the holes. THEY HAD NOTHING! No way to determine the hole layout. I guess they thought we could just drive up the hole an look at it before hitting our drives. You can't do that of course... so you just have to hit and hope there is not a LAKE (we were playing the LAKES course) or bunker or any other unknown hazards. I'm sure once you play the course a few times the issue is moot, but come on. Oh yeah.. the online golf reservation system I used to book the tee time indicated that GPS would be included. It turns out that the did have GPS many years ago but the newer carts DON"T have them. That's my two cents.

The course was closed for most of 2015 but I saw little or no improvement on the Lakes side. Hole 16 needs to have some indicator as to where the water is on the tee shot.. Many holes need more turf around the greens. Most are elevated. It is difficult to get up and down from dirt. No beverage cart service on Labor Day with temp in the 90s.

First time back for me after the flood last year. Fairways and greens in good shape. Areas around cart paths and under trees between holes still need work.

Very challenging "target" golf from the white tees, you will need multiple clubs from the tee.

Pace was slow mostly due to a cart path only situation due to recent rain.

Wife and I played 18 in 2:30. Sprinkle to shower the entire time. Course was pretty muddy when you got off the greens and fairways. Greens were fair to good, rolling about 7-8. Lakes course has tons of doglegs, driver is not needed on about 6 holes. Water in play everywhere, even on sightlines off the tee. GPS or course knowledge would have helped. Played for $50 (both) and that is a nice price for a course just getting back into shape from the 2014-2015 floods. 13 over thru 15 and birdied the last 3 holes. Go figure.

For the middle of summer, course was in good condition. I've always liked the layout, but darn were the groups in front of me slow!! On a very hot day it took 2 hours and 40 minutes to play front 9. I quit at turn, I refuse to play over 5 hour round- just not enjoyable.

First time playing this course since it re-opened. Totally forgot this is a shot makers course with all the dog legs off the tee box. Our GPS system really didn't show the water hazards clearly. Some we thought was grass and after hitting off the tee, ball was in the lake.. Other than that its on its way back and we will play again.

Overall had a very enjoyable round. Although hot, was able to beat the heat under the trees. Fairways were pretty rutted up from recent rain, and then drying out leaving it bumpier than usual.
