Course was in pretty good shape considering all the water that has been on the course this year. Front nine in good shape, back nine still has a lot of dirt, so not much ch grass to hit your ball off of. Definitely need to clean your clubs afterwards. They have done a great job getting it to where it is. Would go back today.

The layout of this course is awful. Several holes have trees blocking the green. You can hit a drive down the center of the fairway and have no shot at the green. Too many other great courses to play nearby. We won't be back.

Golf now pulled off a very good deal not quite sure why they charge you the additional $3.49 instead of just including it in the price. The $.49 seems like a odd # to pay when you are paying green fees , maybe round it down.. We ALL have to make a profit but really do we have to know how much EVERYTIME we book a tee time...

I booked a tee time online on a Wednesday night.

The price that was advertised was $5.00.

I confirmed the reservation time and amount.

The following morning I received a phone call telling me that the amount advertised was not correct and that they will have to charge me $45.00 more.

I told them that this was unacceptable and unethical to not honor their advertised prices. Their response to being called out for not honoring their advertised oprice was to tell me that I am not allowed back to the golf course.

I would not recommend this course to anyone.

I have loved this course for 45 years, but hadn't played it in the last 30 .(for years i played it in my mind at various driving ranges) . It is much the same as i remembered it, only the majestic Oaks that guard a couple of the greens are bigger . This course rarely punishes you for a well struck shot, but with OB's and trees it will make you pay for the bad ones. The were smooth and putted true, but were pretty slow and appear to be receiving treatment for minor black grass issues.

Fairways and Greens in good shape, tee boxes a bit rough and not level. Good combination of wide open tee shots and others with trees to demand shot shaping. Large tree guarding 18th green should be removed as it takes a perfect shot to get to green, no room for any error.

Oak trees are protected (even on private property) You need 2 well placed shots to get on in regulation but it's a tough hole.

Always love playing this course. It is a great value and it is challenging with the layout and the trees. Only complain I have is that I have golfed there over 5 times and have dealt with numerous different staff inside and every time they have been rude to my group. If it was solely based on staff friendliness, I would never go back!
