Course is just coming out of reseeding and the course looks really good. Hopefully players will respect the cart path only ,request . Pace of play was good, even with the restrictions . Johhny, the starter was very friendly.

The course was recently over seeded therefore the greens were unplayable. Not sure if this was noted when I made the reservation either way it was not clear so it was a let down. The pace of play was extremely slow and a group of 2 had the course backed up an never noticed a Marshall out to help.That said the staff was awesome! Very friendly and helpful.Great restaurant also.

The greenkeeper starts overseeding work befor we finished, he doesn't give way on the fairway!

Fairways and greens are in a desolate condition. No grass thats effects dust, quit a lot of dust.

To cap it all - we have to pay the full green-fee.

Wow what an awful day

Course was in good condition, The only issue was they have had a lot of storms lately and there's brush laying everywhere just to sides of fairway. So if you hit your ball just off the fairway your going to lose your ball. Looks kinda bad. Pace of play was slow at first , had a slow 4 some in front and then a 2 some. We ended up skipping a hole and then it moved along fine. Enjoyed lunch after in the clubhouse and food was good.

The course has been recently bombarded by the monsoons. Mad props to the grounds crew for getting it back to good shape. The greens were a bit shaggy but for the most part rolled true. Staff is great! Pro shop to bar, wonderful people.

"Not A Good Experience"

First time playing Verified Purchaser

Unfortunately, when we drove to the golf course we found out the front 9 was closed due to flooding and the driving range was closed. Many carts were backed up waiting to get on the back 9 and some making the turn to go again. It was not a good experience. We waited and waited. People were upset, cancelling, etc... The course would not work with us in rescheduling or any other options. We finally just left and never played. I know the flooding could not be helped but, they could have made rescheduled rounds for people. The course staff was not willing to look at any options. So, never got to play and will not be going back.
