Golf course layout was nice, a lot of elevation change. The greens were slow bumpy and discolored... fairways were in similar fashion... Dont expect much but if you go in with an open mind you might be surprised what you get, layout wise, for the money...

Very slow play, it was a Saturday, but still...

Greens looked like fairway, just a bit shorter in grass length.

Won't be back.

Understand the $23 pp, but still... Get what you pay for.

Terrible course. Hard to find a patch of grass on the fairway and when you did it was like hitting off of cement. Greens haven't been cut in I don't know how long and were patchy. I thought this would be a nice little course to knock the rust off from being away from the game for a few months but the conditions of this course just added to my frustration. Total waste of money & I will never be back !!

Very nice people and work is in progress on the course, but right now I'd stay away. Greens are longer than long froghair and virtually unputtable. Several forward tees are in the fairway and nowhere close to flat in terms of stance. Good course for beginners to practice hitting the ball though they'll get no valuable practice chipping onto greens or putting with the Greens as they are.

The greens are awful. Cut them short and roll them. My gosh I can't believe the Superintendant is still employed. I played here 6 months ago and the greens were much better. Shag carpet is better than what I putted on yesterday. I will play there one more time in 3 or 4 months. If the greens aren't up above acerage quality I will spend my money elswhere. Shameful putting conditions! Fix it....

Tee boxes and greens need to be mowed and the greens need to be irrigated. All in all not a bad place to play. With a little tender loving care this course could be a great place to play.

tee boxes and fairways were in good shape. Fairways appeared to be overseeded which made them nice for hitting the ball. Greens were in pretty sad shape-appeared to have some disease and for whatever reason the grass was long which made them super slow. Never could get a consistent feel for putting on them. The course has an old school feel to it-which I like, some challenging holes and other then the green issues we had a good time. I would recommend if you can get a discounted rate. Overall rating would be 3.5 but not able to select that.

Despite that we enjoyed our round.

We played this course in 2015 and it has deteriorated considerably since then. The greens are almost unputtable. The fairways patchy. It is a shame as the layout is good and it could, with a lot of tender loving care, be a really nice course. We will not be playing it again anytime soon.

This was by far the worse condition a golf course has ever been that I played. They should definitely let people know the sprinkler system broke and it looks like a cow pasture.
