Almost a 3 hour 9 hole round due to cart path only. Inexcusable they would schedule tee times that closely together. On almost every hole there was one foursome on the tee box with 2 foursomes waiting.

Nice day on the course. Front 9 cart path only due to overseeding but looking good. Be nice to play when open. Back 9 getting ready so like playing two different kind of courses. Overall nice place and convenient location.

A weird experience. Course was well maintained, but tough to really enjoy. We played the Squire and the King nines on a Sunday afternoon. Pace of play was good, but did not enjoy the Squire - it is extremely short, without much in the way of interesting holes. Almost like a glorified executive track. Just kind of blah - but in decent shape. The King is a much more interesting track - more traditional length and some nice holes. More of a true golf experience. But the course is set up in a strange way where from green to the next tee is an adventure of winding thru residential areas, often for several minutes of cart driving time. At least twice we lost our way and once actually had to ask folks out in their yard which way to go. Very odd, and took away from what otherwise would have been an enjoyable back nine. Overall it's not a horrible experience, but there are so many better options out there.

I found everyone very friendly and helpful. The course was being referbished for the year so practice green was shut down and regular greens were scalped to be ready for over seeding. Otherwise it was fun for a city course.

I rated the course extremely difficult for the simple fact that The Squire 9 blew me away! Some of the 400+ yard par 4's were tight! Teeing off was like trying to tee off down my street without hitting a house or neighbors dog! Sheesh! Of course there are some bail out areas that I noticed AFTER I teed off!

The King 9 was by far in the best condition that I've seen recently (and I just played TPC Stadium several days before!)

Both courses are in excellent shape and the greens, though on the slowish side were still a challenge!

Oh Yeah! I'll be back!

Nice course and great price. My only issue is that there are houses lining most of the fairways. In many cases, the fairways are narrow and the houses are way to close. My wife put one on the roof of one. Beware, this course isn't for the everyday golfer who slices a ball every once in a while.

Had the chance to play at a reduced rate and it was really worth the money. Course is in great shape. Not long but a few tough tee shots. Very pretty layout and scenic par 3's

Moved right along for about 6-7 holes then got bogged down . Was playing by myself and was behind 2 foursomes. They were kind enough to let me play through

Great time and I'd definitely come back
