Definitely a good overseed here! Fairways, tees and greens were great. Sand traps left a lot to be desired. Overall great value and condition. I'll be back soon!

sand traps some water but a lot of fun for the average player. Even when off fairway brown grass that will hold the ball up enough to hit.

Course is beautiful, challenging and well kept. Way too many players on the course at one time which caused us to only play 14 holes in almost 5 hours.

Course needs a ranger to keep play moving. Saw the cart girl multiple times throughout the day but no ranger.

Don't be alarmed by the run down homes and yards that border this course. They do not take away from the well maintained course. Staff is friendly and helpful. Course layout is not exciting but a bit of sand and a bit of water require some course management. If you keep the ball in play the average golfer has a good chance at a low score. I would recommend the course add rangers to keep the pace of play moving. The group in front of us was about two holes behind the group in front of them, turning a 3:40 round into a 4:10 round.

Great course to play, somewhat challenging but to bad. There is water that comes into play on a couple holes if you're not aware of it. Weather was perfect, course conditions excellent!! Shot the best round EVER... finally broke 90.
