First off would like to say this is a open and great course to play. The facility is still awaiting approval for building permanent structures on because the fly ash law suit in this area. The staff is nice but don't try to have 5 people play they don't allow it. Fairways are open and fun. If you play great golf this course can play challenging because of the green layouts. I really enjoy playing here and is now my favorite place as well as my brothers. My son played here and enjoyed it. There is no alcohol allowed but I stopped drinking a few at the course to focus on solid golf. Shot a 73 last time there but have shot as high as 85 before with missed greens.

The Superintendent there has done a fantastic job with the new greens. They are rolling buttery smooth. Can't beat the price for the quality of the course! Was a playing practice round for me (still cheaper to play than 2 buckets of practice balls). Thank you.

Why go to the driving range. For a few dollars more I can practice on a course. Yes, I'm a cheap golfer. Why pay $25 to $35 when other near by courses are the same or marginally better condition.

I encourage friends to play here because I find this layout to be fun and challenging. Rolling fairways, incredible greens, water and sand, it has everything. I like that every time I go here I can see signs that they are still working to improve the layout and the conditions for the players ( I find this more important than a lack of a fancy clubhouse and pro shop, or less-than primo carts that I've heard others mention - those are irrelevant to the course and the pace of play). I look forward to playing there again soon.

Good course. Lots of water. No club house, just a pro shop, vending machines and porta-Johns.

I wouldn't pay full price, but the "hot deal" is worth it. Good luck.

This is a moderately challenging course that has a really interesting layout. Water comes into play on many holes. There are a lot more elevation changes than is typical for courses in this area.

The greens are interesting; they almost look like they are artificial. They putt reasonably true, though. They don't hold approach shots well, as they are fairly hard.

I enjoy this course. It's a lot different from all the others.

They don't have a real clubhouse, the parking lot is dirt, and if you have to go, they only have porta-potties. On the plus side, though, their driving range is really nice and you can hit off grass. You can also practice sand shots.

Even with the current rains and warm weather the greens looked very dry and worn out. It was real hard to get a consistent roll when putting. Hopefully they will get to working the greens back into shape.

This course is close to my home. I play here often because of that and it's inexpensive. For February the greens are in good shape and pretty fast. I do wish that the pace of play was a little better but they allow groups to skip holes which causes backups from time to time. I do appreciate Mike and his staff for the junior camps they put on in the summer. My son has benefited from it. Overall it's not a bad place to play. Now if they can get some sort of food sales it would greatly help.
