First time I've played a course with 10 left doglegs....two straight holes and two right doglegs. Tight course and need to consider best angle for 2nd shot when teeing off

Par 5's are short but need good placement to attempt to reach in 2.

They offer a $2 bucket of 20 balls for a light warmup....wish more courses offered the same.

I'm a fairly new golfer and when I was asking the manager about recommended golf clubs he was very cocky and to be honest rude to me. As if I shouldn't be bothering him with that question. I won't be back because of him! I will also be sure to tell others about my horrible experience there and to take their business elsewhere like we will be doing.

Overall this was a good experience for me, Apparently they will be doing construction soon. There were a few holes where preliminary work was in process. So it took a little away from the look, but did not really hurt the play ability.

The front 9 was more forgiving than the back for this novice golfer. I had not played here for a few years and really enjoyed the course (and updates). There are some challenging holes but nothing ridiculous.

My partner and I only paid $12 each on a Golf Now special, so we really cannot complain too loudly about the course conditions. But when we got on the course, from about hole 3 to hole 9, and especially hole 4,5, were a mess and the construction people were impervious to us playing golf. Like I said, for $12, we cannot complain, but if we would have paid the $31 the couple paid that played with us, well then I would say that it would be poor value, and I would not recommend it at all.<br/> Greens were in good condition, however on all holes. Fairways, and tee boxes not so much.

Course is well maintained. Its wide fairways and excellent greens make it a pleasure to play. I guess the rainy season helped put it in great condition. Staff are welcoming and the pace of play was super.

Played in 3 hours as the course wasn't busy, probably because of the heat. The course is in excellent shape, and the greens are as good as I've seen them in the past. Fairways are also good with plenty of roll. I've played here a number of times in the past few years and they are always improving. The staff are welcoming and friendly.

I feel that the course is very easy and not your typical golf course. The back nine is terrible for the rainy season. The front nine is very short and only a par 35 from the tips it's 6200. The greens were like something from happy Gilmore. Then again it is a city course.

Not a bad course for the money. They'd had a lot of rain course was very wet. Back 9 is harder than the front 9 . I'd play it again.
