This is a very nice course. Despite that it rained all night the course was in good condition. Greens are excellent. Has 3 nine hole courses. I played the Fox and the Otter All was good and I will continue to play this course

Bag drop guy was efficient. Starter was not interested in being there. 7-10 minute wait on each hole. Greens were medium speed and were the best comment to be made about the course conditions. Leaves everywhere. No restroom facilities on course. No hole layout map or yardages on tees or directional signs between holes.

My wife and I played the Fox/Otter and we liked the Fox but not the Otter as the fairway grass was very thin and condition were wet. The greens were nice and face on both.

"Too wet"

The course was interesting & challenging but was too wet to really enjoy. It was constant lift & clean or drop away from standing water. I played this course twenty-some years ago in July and it was wet then. Bad timing? Not sure.

Went as a single and was paired with another single and a twosome. The only problem was the three some ahead of us. VERY slow and what looked to be beginners. Almost 5 hour round. I have played here many times and never see a marshal to help speed pace of play. As a foursome we should hardly ever wait to play, but we waited on almost every shot.

I enjoyed the course. Fairways were in very good condition. Greens rolled well and even though the area around most of the greens was soft, but i guess this is common time of year.

We played the course on Monday. Granted it was a busy day but we were kept waiting way past our tee time. The course layout is quite ordinary (Bear/Fox). I understand there's maintenance to be done but the greens were in poor shape.

Greens in good shape, smooth and fast. Around some of the greens there was a considerable amount of mud that was chewed up by cart traffic even though it was obvious that the conditions were very wet. Although it was a fun course it was a little rough around the edges. Having said all that I would go back.

Played on a Saturday prior to flight leaving after week of golf so we did not have time for a five hour round. Started out great but after 9 holes we caught the 4 sum in front of us and they could have cared less that they were holding everyone up. More drinking than golfing. They were 2 and a half holes behind the group in front of them. We went passed them and skipped the 12 th hole or we would have been out there over 5 hours. No marshal even on a busy Saturday. The course is really showing its age. Heavy watering around greens caused a muddy mess with cart tracks all over the place. Probably won’t be back.

Enjoyable round, the two nines are quite different. Was linked with a nice couple, Eddy played off of the championship tees and hit the ball miles, I played off of the whites (instead of the yellow!) and he was often still 50 yards in front of me, his wife played off the yellows. It was an enjoyable round in lovely weather with good company, what more can you ask for.

Fairly heavy rain the day before but sunny and breezy when we played. Course holds a lot of water!! Makes every shot from the fairway a mudball. Greens were pretty smooth and rolled well. Would like to play again when course has had several days without rain.

I played here about 15 years ago so I didn't remember much. I was paired with 2 other singles one of which was a member. Both were great guys and having the member with us really helped. The course is OK, nothing special but no complaints either. Good condition and we played in well under 4 hours. I would recommend this course.
