good value for the money.

Pace was excellent, played 18 holes in about 4 hours.

Greens are firm need to aim for the front otherwise

it won't stay on. Clubhouse is always playing good music.

Conditions of the course are very good. There must've been a sprinkler problem overnight, which seems to be quite common for this course, as hole 17 was half under water. We didn't see a beverage cart until our 13th hole which is also common. When asked, the pro shop attendant said she didn't get to the course until 8:30. We were part of a shotgun that went out at 7:30 and also the snack shack was closed.

The pro shop attendant also seemed to be the only person working as well. There was a line of 15 people waiting to check in and the attendant was answering phones, starting groups, and checking people in.

The course itself is worth the green fee but the little things always seem to get missed here. It seems like the bottom line and getting as many people as possible on the golf course is all management cares about, with guests overall experience be damned.

The course was in great shape but pace was terrible. Played the front in good but got to the back nine and reached number twelve and had five foursomes on the same hole with no ranger to be seen. Also was a warm day and we saw the beverage girl on the fourth hole and never saw her again. The coolers on the course were empty

The course was in nice shape and the weather was good but breezy. If the game would not have taken 5 hours I would recommend this course. Unfortunately every time we arrived at a par 3 there was 4 groups backed up on the hole which made everybody lose their rhythm and interest.
