Maybe it's because I used to live in Florida; but I hated these greens. They were partially dead; short cut; painted type of greens. SMDH. The conditions left little control putting. Some tee boxes need repair. I would suggest they upgrade there flag markers; some looking shady. On the upside; it's a nicely laid out course. Some good challenges. Good average practice course. This was my first visit. I played a hot deal price; which made it reasonably priced. Was it worth my hour drive to the course; maybe. Hope with the warmer weather approaching the course improves.

Hi Dennis, we are sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience. While we are still making up from this winter, our course will always be a different experience than those in Florida. With the warm spring weather, we will see much better conditions, and we hope that you will consider visiting us again.

Will not return to this course. Course was over booked. I notified the martial of the extremely slow play - backed up 4 holes. He did nothing. Then upon turning to the back nine, they put 2 golfers on ahead of us. So all 4 of us quit. Front desk was notified. Poor management.

I really enjoy this course because it is moderately challenging and somewhat forgiving. I get bored with courses where every par 4/5 you pull up to the tee box, automatically grab the Driver and just blast off. I like a course that makes you strategize a little bit, and this is one of them - for a great value too. I used just about every club in my bag, and that makes for fun golf.

When you do have a mishit, it's not so heavily wooded or brushy that you can't find your ball. In fact, you're likely still in a position to recover on your next shot fairly well.

Good luck on #8; no shame in playing the other fairway, haha!

I played in late March and the course had already greened up beautifully. Just a couple of isolated bare spots on maybe 2 green perimeters, but it's early spring, they'll fill in quick.

Did I mention it's a great value? I'll be back soon!

Had a great time! Trying to find a course that has challenges as well as mediocre obstacles! Greens in great shape, but early for good full growth to mature. Greens putted like linoleum floor with no texture or character. Later on in spring they will putt better. Still enjoyed myself immensely and will continue play with no second-thoughts.

Your first impression may be to think that this is an old course that has seen its better days. I love playing this course. There are 3 or 4 holes on the back 9 nine that always get the best of me. Especially a short par 4 that has gotten the best of me every time I play it. For the price it is well worth playing. It has been windy each time I have played it. It is a course that has become one of my favorites.

The course layout is ok, the amenities are minimal and the fairways are good with the winter conditions that we are accustomed to in the area. However, some of the greens had damage and there were tons of leaves scattered throughout the course which made looking for your ball troublesome st times. The price was great and the staff was very friendly, but I would like to see some improvements in the next few months.

I wasn't expecting much for end of December golf. The price was great so that added to lowered expectations. We arrived and had one extra person that joined late. Staff was accommodating and we even started a little early. The course is really open with the exception of one hole. I'm sure it's completely different in the spring when the trees are full. Only complaint was the leaves left all over the course. Group spent a lot of extra time looking for balls in the fairway covered by leaves.

This is a great value for the play. Course isn't in great shape, but still very playable. The greens are very slow and burnt. Ants are starting to attack the course right now. The rough areas are not maintained very much. Looks like they just get mowed and that's it. It's a pretty difficult course from the tips (which are blue tees). Good play for the money, but wish the course was in better shape. Could be way worse though.
