They way over book, if you want to take 5 to 6 hours to play go here. Honestly I tried to play here 5 times and only one time pace of play was slow but ok.

I don't look there to play. They start people on tee 1 and tea 10 also causing a big mess.

Our tee time was for 7:00 AM. We showed up a few minutes before, but there were 5 people in front of us. By the time we got to check in it was 7:01 AM and were not allowed to play because the course was so backed up. As we walked out there were two people heading to the first tee. We sat as I went online and booked a reservation at another course. We were there fifteen minutes and no one else had yet headed for the first tee.

Staff was great. The course was nice. But everything was very wet! The greens were inconsistent because of this. Nice golf carts. I did like the layout and the course overall.

But one weird thing was they played loud music over the loud speakers and you could here it at the 1st tee, 18th green and 10th tee. I didn't like that at all.

This was a good course but the tee times were 5 min apart so there was a lot of waiting on the groups in front of you. It did have a lot of long distance drives so you will get a ton of chances to use all of your clubs.

First time playing this course and loved it. We took the new Golfboards out for a ride and had a blast. The course was is great condition and the fairly simple layout was perfect for beginners. Even scrubs like us were able to keep up with the pace-of-play and finish in a little over 4 hours. I hope the course is maintained that well throughout the summer because I plan on coming back often.

I played as a single with three other players who were much younger and much better players than me. They could all really bomb their drives out there while I'm lucky to get 220 yards. They were all very pleasant and didn't give any indication that they were upset with my lower skill level. The course was in good condition. The greens were cut very short but that didn't really affect play. The course layout is very good and for the most part forgiving. The water that is there is usually off to the side. You have to hit over it on only a couple of the holes. All in all a nice course and a good value for the money, now that the summer rates have kicked in. Also, the course restaurant has one of the best all-you-can-eat Friday fish fries you will find anywhere! I highly recommend that too!

Course said they were a half hour behind on tee times. Closer to 45 minutes. There was about 2 groups waiting at every tee. What was supposed to be a 145pm tee time, finished our round at about 715pm. I've read in other reviews that this has been happening a lot lately. Unfortunately, I love this course, it's my favorite course near me. But likely will never book another Saturday afternoon tee time.

Our first time here. The counter person was cordial and accommodated as far as tee times. This is a little more laid back course and to us that's a plus. They do not jamb the course with an overwhelming amount of players to maximize their profit margin.

The course was in great shape which made us want to come back soon.

Course was in very good condition. Waste areas well defined and enhanced attractiveness of course. Layout was straightforward and somewhat routine.Aftrenoon time and the pace of play was excellent. Good track to boost golfer's ego, but don't hit driver on 18!
