Play this course with low expectations and you just might decide to go back. The greens are bumpy and bare in areas. The fairways are about 50% decent and 50% dirt and weeds. You cannot play the ball down, you have to "noodle it" to find something that resembles grass at times. Most tee boxes were decent. What shines throughout the round is the quality of the layout. RTJ's design is apparent everywhere. If this course was properly maintained it would be one of the finest in the area.

DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!! This course was in horrible condition. I have played public courses in better shape then this. Greens bumpy and bare spots. Fairways were hard and had bare spots. This place could be great. Has potential. But way over priced for how bad this course is in. I even had a hot deal and wouldn't go back even if they gave it to me for free. Save your money. Pay the extra and go somewhere nice. You been warned!!!

There is great beauty here -- birds, water views, homes, and the greens are pretty good. This is a fair price for a fair course, but it is not great golf. Far too slow, inconsistent parirings,, little supervision to speed things up.

Course not designed for the average golfer. Far too much water. I suggested it might have been designed by Jacques Cousteau.

The fairways were too inconsistant in condition. The greens were in horrible condition. Very bumpy. The speed ranged from very slow to very fast.

I probably would not play this course again.

The greens and fairways were in very bad shape it was like playing in a field. Pace of play was very good because it wasn't busy i guess because most people know that it is in bad shape. Staff were good. The pictures do no justice of the conditions.

Commented on 03/04/2017

I played the course on 3/3/17. I saw the reviews but wanted to check for myself to verify. They were correct. The greens were awful. Bumpy, not a lot of grass on them and large dirt patches on them. The fairways had plenty of bald spots all over and the tees were pretty beaten up. Apollo will probably respond as it was the dry weather or hope you come back again. You have totally lost this course and I don't know at this point of you can restore it but it's not worth playing in this shape. Sorry for the negative comments but I call them truthfully.

This is a Robert Trent Jones Sr. layout which makes it appealing to play. However it is in fair shape and needs a lot of TLC. The greens roll good but very bumpy. I almost want to say don't recommend to a friend unless can get a price no bigger than $26-28.

Play course once every 2 weeks since Oct. and each time

course is getting worse condition wise.

Fairways very dry and sandy. Greens are getting very bumpy.

Too bad because it is a great layout.
