Mid-December and the golf course is quiet. Why? Temps were great, mid-60s. It's a very nice course. Challenging layout, a few forced carries, at least for me when I'm on the least ideal side for my approach shot. Staff are great. Course is varied. GolfNow incentive seals the deal.

Great value bc GolfNow had a great deal going on. There’s 4 different tees and available driving range and chipping area. The golf range balls weren’t free which is disappointing but course has a nice layout.

I would play again but not sure it’s worth paying full price

Course was very ragged. Many spots in fairway without grass. Greens were fine but nobody bothered to fix ball marks, perhaps felt that because course was in such poor condition it didn’t matter.

First time playing since it was closed down to renovate. The improvements are noticeable on the tees and fairways. It is a very comfortable place to play from the right tees. We played with a couple from England and enjoyed their company.

Greens were in good condition. They ran slow. Fairways were spotty. Some areas on the fairway were like hitting off the parking lot. Off the fairway roots around trees were dangerous. The staff was cordial inside and on the course.
