course can be good if the little details are fixed.

yardage is so easy to update so players can find distances easily.

scorecards - duh.

if greens are damaged replace the spots with new sod. charging a little more is ok just fix the greens. some look nioce but need to be pressed and firmed up so they roll faster.

Everything was positive except for the greens being very poor on the back 9 and the fact our group of 3 was in front of multiple 2's. We were constantly letting people play through. The course was great besides that. Will be back.

Rating based on this round alone. Greens are terrible right now. Told that they had a "nematode issue". Sad, as they had redone them in the last few years. This is a solid layout by Palmer with a good clubhouse and friendly staff. If you value the entire playing experience, wait until the greens come back and then give it shot.

They were not busy at all but the rate of play was a snails pace. No Marshall and no players seemed to care.

Several of the greens were in bad shape.

You can spend the same amount of Money for a better experience.

The course has a fairly straight forward layout with enough water to make it interesting. Some of the greens are in rough shape but I believe that is being managed. Most of the sand traps are in good condition as well as the tee boxes. Pace of play can be an issue depending on what day you go. Overall a decent value.

My review would have been higher but the greens are in horrible condition. Not enough grass and too much compacted sand make for lumpy, bumpy putting. The layout is decent enough with quite a few fun, challenging holes and not too many meh holes. The check-in guy seemed like he was having a bad day or was thinking of better things to do. The cart lady was very nice though. The practice areas are decent and no mandatory use of mats on the range either. I would recommend this course only after they improve the greens.

There are two things that should have happened that did not occur.

#1 No one informed us when we made reservations that there was a tournament in the morning of our round and we were an hour behind in starting.

#2 No one informed us that all 18 greens had been sanded due to either a fungus or disease. Could not putt on these.

We love the course but these two items should have been told to us prior to making a reservation and paying in advance.

The cart and bar staff are great but everything else is just awful!! Course is in poor condition, especially the greens. The worst part, is they routinely allow groups larger than 4 to go out. That is just asinine and any club pro and GM that has any business sense would know that is just unacceptable. Rounds on the weekends take usually 5-5.5+ hours. Never coming back!!!!

The pace of play is normally slow on this course but the last time I played was ridiculous! They had a teenage girls tournament or some type of event going on, they where walking the course. When I got to hole 7 there were 5 groups of foursomes waiting to tee off, I went ahead all the way to hole 10 but still no openings so I called it a day. I do like this course but Overcrowded sometimes.

Very nice course with excellent features. The fairways are in good shape, but the greens are not back yet from winter. The back 9 greens were not very good, but the front 9 were better. I'll definitely be back to play this enjoyable course.

This was the first time I've played this course and I found it to be an easy wide open lay out. The greens were very fast but bumpy due to aeration. It took 5 hrs 15 min to play the round. Had to wait on every shot and this was on a Thursday. I would go back and play again. I would like to see what the course looks like after the rough grows and the greens are smooth. With the exception of having to wait on every shot, I did enjoy the round.
