On Golfnow.com the cart icon is on this course's offering as being included in the rate. Once you get to the course they slam you with a $7.75 per person cart fee and they blame Golfnow.com for the error. Not cool!!!!

This is a public 9 hole course with only two long holes. 3 & 6 van be challenging and 4 is the longest hole. Really greaty to practice short game and Iron play. Moves fairly quickly although there are a lot of walkers. For $11 you cant beat it!!


Player Tip: Lay up on 3 of the teebox and go for the green on the second shot, Driving the green isn't permitted due to Hole 7 placement.

My father always said that if you dont have anything good to say, don't say anything at all. So, I won't say anything about How difficult it was to pay, the unfriendliness when we walked in, the poor conditions of the course and then the questionable antics of the so called starter/ranger who told me where I should and should'nt put my pull cart. I know how to respect a course much better than they know how ro maintain one. What did I expect for $12.00 ????

There is no Marshall to keep up pace of play, so pace was ver slow because players can walk the course, greens need better care, but is relatively good value for the fees paid

Played with my son last Saturday and was surprised that this little course could be so fun! Although it does require some attention at least the greens were ok. I will go back because it is close to my house and its a fair deal thru Golf Now.

Course is overall pretty good. Some patchy greens but besides that it plays well. For the price you definitely can't beat it. Best bang for your buck around and a fun course to play. Look forward to continue playing here.

This is a good course to practice the short game although the greens are not in good shape. The fairways are playable, almost no water to challenge and few sand traps. Also a good beginner's course.
