The course was in great shape except the tee box on number 9. Large rut in the middle of the tee box. Mentioned it to the starter when we made the turn. Other than the tee box issues the courses was in great shape. The staff was very friendly, the starter offered to run me back to my car in the parking lot, I walked it was not far.

I arrived early tee time was 11 AM . I dropped of by clubs and parked by car. By the time I put my shoes on the starter had by bags in the cart and brought the cart to me. The course was dry there has not been much rain. The greens were in good shape but hard. You could tell they were working on the course by the chemicals on the fairways and greens. I will go back again

The course is dry and you will find lots of hard spots and dead trees that need attention but for the price it was ok. Greens were slow as they get a lot of old players it is understood.

The round was terrible, didn't even finish a full 9 holes. To begin my scheduled tee time was pushed by over 45 minutes waiting for the groups that were over booked to tee off on hole #1. Finally the started suggested I could tee off the back as I was a single. That was a mistake as there were 2 Senior Foursomes and 2 Senior Twosomes ahead of me there. The pace of play couldn't not have been any been any slower. After 7 holes and 2:30 hours I left the course.

Starter met us in the parking lot with a cart and it was all great going forward. We had a noon tee time and aside from a short wait at the turn we got done in 4 hours. The course was in good shape but seemed a little dry. This seems to be the case at all courses as we have had a dry season. The green fee is at the top of the range for conditions, but we would not hesitate to go back and probably will soon.

We had a 5 some in front of us and 3 holes open front of them by the time we got to the 9th hole.

We had a 3 some behind us that push us all day.

The ranger would ride by but not speed up play.

any serious club golfer should avoid this place on weekends if you want to avoid 5-6 hour rounds. They book far too many duffers making this a family picnic outing with no sense of play, rules, courtesy or consideration for the course or other players.

For $32.00 travel a little further and enjoy your round

Nice course and will play again. I like the layout which includes some elevation changes. some short but challenging par 4's, and some very challenging par 3's.Greens were in good shape and reasonably fast. Fairways were ok and rough was in very poor shape. Had some bare lies in the rough. I would attribute the poor conditions in the rough and fairways to lack of rain this winter. I have played this course twice and both times the pace of play was slow (approximately 4.5 hours to finish the round both times). The first time was due to a slow and particularly loathsome forsum. The second time was due to a crowded course. Overall the course is very nice and we will be back.

We were the first group on the course, and I am glad for that. We played on a Monday. I have heard that if you wait later in the day (After 9am) it gets backed up quick. Greens are immaculate, tee boxes and fairways in good shape too. Staff was very friendly, even offered to take me back to my car when I was dropping off the cart.
