First and foremost, I love this layout and you can see they are trying and this will be a fantastic course. But this course in it's present condition is unplayable both literally and figuratively. This is the second time playing since they re-opened, the first we were in the middle of the worst drought in a long time so the lack of fairways was forgivable, couldn't wait to play the course again after the rainy season and see all the fairways grown in, that didn't happen. The course was 100 times worse, most the fairways are completely dead, something really bad happened, bugs? over fertilization? something. But what grass there is, boy, is it bad. We really did lose balls in the fairways and 3 of them less than 10 yards off greens. There weren't a lot of people on the course so we had plenty of time to look. All par 5's have temporary tees 100 - 200 yards from the green, which takes a beautiful layout and makes this course into a really bad glorified par 3 course. Even at a 'discounted' price of 25, that is WAY too much. After how much rain we got over the summer, I was expecting much, much, much more. For something good to say... a couple of the greens were in very good shape, and you can see work being done, but this course is many months away from being at least playable. The tenth hole was in the best shape, and you can see what a wonderful course this will turn into. Maybe just play the 10th 18 times. Oh and for the guy who yelled at me for 1 wheel on the very edge of his yard #literally 6 inches off the cart path, we stopped for the cart girl# hate to break this to you, YOU LIVE ON A GOLF COURSE! get over it!

Great staff very friendly, and great food also. The course is in really bad shape. Fairways have no grass on them and the rough is so high you will lose your ball 1 foot off the Fairways. Fairway and green riughs need to be cut down they are ridiculously high. You will lose lots of balls 5 feet off the green. The layout of the course is great but i wish this course was is good condition. Do not play here, save your money until the course is in better shape.

Course layout is nice but defintely not in a good condition for consistent play. Fairways on several holes needs to grow in. Green we're ok though. Needs some time to mature. Will return once it grows in.

This course is in TERRIBLE condition. At the rate of recovery, since it re-opened, unless someone takes charge, this place is destined for failure. and that is too bad, because it does have a nice lay-out.

Still developing. The layout of this course is wonderful and challenging, so interesting. For us seniors, some of the holes are more suitable to have bogey as a goal like holes 16 and 18, just too long. Yet there are enough shorter holes where great hits will be rewarded. I really like this course ! Now conditions are only fair. When the wet season starts in June, hopefully the Bermuda grass will fill in on the fairways. Also the greens were so fuzzy, my guess at 8 on the Stimpmeter which is darn slow, like the 1950s green where you see the old timers pounding their putts. Hopefully as the grass on the greens get better, they'll start cutting them closer. The price is a bit low to make some allowance for course conditions. But to be clear, even with all that, I'll be back next week.

One of the most fun courses I have played. The condition was a bit rough after months without rain, but still a lot of fun!

You get a lot of privacy on every hole and it was just perfectly challenging for me and my boogey golf.

Great place to play!

Course is coming back. You can see it's fairly early in the process, and they'd benefit a lot from some rain. That said, it's an interesting layout, the greens are fast and roll true, and the people there are nice. Will definitely be back and I'm looking forward to seeing the course grow into itself.

The course is in decent condition since it reopened. The booked too many tee times at once and backed up the holes. So the pace of play was really slow. It took 2.5 hours to play 9 holes.

This course reopened after being shut down for about five years. Of course the greens and tees fell apart during that five-year layoff.

The new ownership has a lot of ambitious plans and the layout of the course is good. But the fairways and greens still have a long way to go.

If the course every recovers it will be certainly be above average probably rated good as a course.

Played the course just after it re opened it wasn't in great shape which is understandable. Waited a couple of months, gave it another chance, maybe in a couple years, no grass, greens have large holes filled with sand.

You can tell it is a work in progress but there's great potential. The greens are ridiculously fast and the hazards are well placed. It does lack mature grass off of the fairways and greens which can make for some interesting shots if you hit a bad tee shot.

Ace Golf is doing a great job getting the course in shape after several years of not being used. There is still work to be done, but the greens are in very good condition, and rolling too fast for my skill level. The marshals roaming the course really do try to solve problems, warn about congestion ahead, and move things along. There is a premium on course management. Hitting to the wrong place will cost you.

Course is continuing to improve after reopening.

Play was slow but there were gaps where a foursome wasn't keeping up with the group ahead. There was a ranger driving around but my observation- I never saw him address the problem. He must do more than make a showing; politely address the issue with the slow groups. Hate slow play, we're all not pros, keep the pace up so everyone can enjoy their round!
