For this time of year, maintenance was pretty descent. The lady in golf shop offered golfers ice and water since there was no cart gal that day...she actually got into a cart and drove the course. Good management. If the rates were higher, I would not play this course...good value for the money.

3 9 hole courses King, Hawk, and Squire. Not too challenging but very nice courses. I was told by a staff member Squire is closed certain times of the year as it's never been open the times I played. So I was curious. The Marshall wasn't very pleasant either occasion(bit of a grumpy gills), on the most recent round We were told to hurry along the second we stepped on the first tee with 2 ladies in front of us. Besides that, I fully enjoyed my time and will go back.

Starfire is a lovely little course with narrow fairways and some challenging holes. The main issue here is the pace of play is always very slow. They don't have a normal driving range and their putting and chipping green can get very crowded. If you are not in a hurry and just looking to sharpen up the game, Starfire is for you!

Starfire's three nine-hole courses--including fairways, bunkers and greens--are decently maintained, the staff is friendly and helpful. Holes with water hazards are often challenging and there's a nice mixture of par 3s and 5s to keep things interesting.

Even though there are no elevation changes, the course was in good shape and was still challenging.

Starfire has 3 nines which is an advantage as far as maintaining the fairways and greens are concerned. No matter which 2 you play on, they are always in very good shape.

This is an old course and the conditions of the tees, fairways,rough and traps are sub-standard. The greens were fine and the pro shop staff was great. Pace of play was terrible and the Marshall said that there was nothing he could do, so please use pacience.

Was 2nd group out on a sunny Sunday morning. No practice area available in the morning, so went out cold. Course consists of 3 9-hole tracks, with between 1-3 Par 5s per 9 and 3 Par 3s.

Tee boxes were in good (not great) shape, some tapering in certain areas but no real issues of which to speak. Fairways and rough are green with a few areas needing more coverage but this mostly a green course throughout. Because of that, there is quite a bit of puddling along the cart paths, but not too bad in the fairways. Greenside bunkers in terrific shape, plenty of soft sand from which to hit, one fairway bunker I was in had some standing water and mud in it.

Greens were moderately fast, and had more break than most public courses, which was a nice change of pace. Some bumps, some ball marks, but overall ran true.

Excellent customer service throughout. 3.5 hour PoP, could have been faster but the ability of the three players I was with were the only thing that kept us from a 3 hour round.

Plenty of parking and welcomed by attendant who took our bags and had a cart ready after paying for our round. Pace of play was good, conditions of course were great with plenty of challenging water on the front nine. Although we didn't have anything from the restaurant the menu looked delicious and fair pricing. Summer specials are also available. We look forward to another round!! Great fun for our first time.
