Fairways very green along with the greens but the grass on the fairways was cut very low and even if you were in middle of fairway the ground was either very damp and would grab your clubs or very dry and you could not get under the ball. The hardness of the ground gave long runs on balls hit on the ground but made if more difficult to go over traps around the green. Mother nature brought in literally hundreds of geese and droppings were a problem. Can't complain about the costs especially at this time of year

I have played here many times but this was the first time playing in 5+ hours. I am sure it was due to the holiday weekend but I was unhappy that we did not see any player assistants at all throughout the entire round to help move slow groups.

I assume today was an aberration and I will certainly play there again but not on a Friday before a vacation weekend.

What a waste of good weather. A perfect day for golf on a nice course ruined by slow play..over 5 hours. Not a marshall in sight. The first 6 holes took 2(!) hours.

We arrived at the course for a 12:24 tee time only to find out that they didn't have any carts. Turns out there was a practice round for Juniors who were playing in the following days. The parents of these kids apparently need to follow every step so there were carts given to parents and kid (4 carts per group in some cases), what were they thinking, they new the booking sheet required carts well into the afternoon. Someone made some very bad decisions, kids could have walked and so could the parents for that matter. We did get our round in but about an hour later than expected.

We were disappointed to find out that we were delayed about 30 minutes due to a shortage of carts. There was a Junior tournament practice round going on and the had given out to many carts so the parents or who ever could ride around with there kids. Some times there were as many as 4 cart per foursome. What is wrong, if the parents could walk(???) then the kids should have, as many of them did in the afternoon because there are not carts available. We would have walked if that option had been available to us, but because we did know of the problem we didn't bring our push carts with us, and of course the course doesn't have any. The starter and bag staff were great, but it was a very poor decision on management, knowing that they had bookings well into the afternoon. We will think twice about playing here again

Ended up moving to different holes due to awful pace of play and eventually stopping early. Women in front of us was hitting multiple balls and charting out distances. Never once asked us to play ahead and wait behind us was awful as well. Did not see course Marshall whole day. Not a good vacation experience for my son and I. Will definitely try a different course our next round.

Perfect weather and great course conditions. The only negative is all the bird poop and the bunkers were a bit water compacted. Pay attention to water areas you can't see on some holes like #6,7 & 9 on the front. Greens were fast and true and have lots of undulation. Bring your A game especially if you play the long tees.
