The course is in good condition but the pace of play was horrible. 5 hours 10 minutes. They are bunching the tee times 7 minutes apart. Last three rounds have taken 5 hours +. I’m not going back until they space the tee times farther apart and get Marshall’s in the course.

I play here often. I hope not too many people see this but it’s a hidden gem. The greens are always smooth and very quick. The fairways are nice and good sand in the traps, not that I was in one or anything. I would definitely recommend and on a week day under 20$ is unbeatable considering we played five in 3 1/2 hours.⛳️

Had a great round of golf today. Course was in good condition. Greens have a lot of angulation and were fairly quick. Played in 3 1/2 hours. We would recommend this course. The course gets better after playing it a few times.

The course itself is nice but I don't think I will go back. We were sandwiched in what seemed like 50 other groups, our tee time was 2:20pm. We had to wait at every hole and every shot. We got stuck behind 4 college bros that literally teed off 4 times each. They would not let us play through, not that it mattered because they had to wait at every hole as well. There were people all over the course. Some even going the wrong way and then jumping on a hole and playing. No Marshall in sight to keep pace of play manageable or directing the idiotic people going the wrong way. It was miserable. I won't be returning for a while, there are other courses around. May try back in the winter time when there are less people playing.

This course had dead greens. The pace of play was terrible. Rude people on the course. Plus never saw a cart girl. If you wanna enjoy your game I suggest you play the Old Course it is a lot better.

Course is very good shape for the amount of play it gets, lots of fun and challenging holes. Greens were in good shape as well. It is worth putting in your rotation if like to play different courses around town and won't break your budget.

Extremely slow play, no marshall, people cutting in on 10 that did not play the first nine. Guy with two little kids playing holding up everyone (sure he didn't pay for them, they were yelling thowing water cups etc. etc.) and he did not care there were multiple groups behind him waiting.

FIVE HOUR ROUND
