First time playing here, played early morning tee off time of 7am, played in 3&1/2 hours. Very fun course lots of challenging holes, greens are in great shape, fairways good shape, Bermuda grass was different to play on ( not used to Bermuda grass) overall I'll definitely play here again

Called in, same day, and staff said course was wide open between 1-2pm. I set tee off for 1:20. Previous group was 12:45.Literally caught up to the group by hole 2 (they were on the green). After I finished hole 2, I jumped up to hole 3 and saw groups at 3, 4, and 5. First time I went back to the course for this exact reason. I was hoping things had changed in regards to "pace of play" but there has not. Plan on a long day. The last 4 - 6 times I went there, it took 5+ hrs to finish. No accountability by rangers or mgt to maintain pace. Mgt's main priority, so it seems, is to collect as many people as they can like a cattle call and collect money.and somewhat disregard course satisfaction.

This course is fun and challenging. The greens are well taken care of, and there are a lot of fun holes. Staff is friendly, but the pace can get a little slow. Understandable though since the price is great and it IS summer. Overall, one of my favorites to play. The bar and bartenders are both a great plus,

Cheers

Good twilight rate brought me to this course. Pretty easy/straightforward layout. Greens are a little bumpy but not bad. About what I expected from the course considering the cost. Only downside was the pace. Started at 2:15 and finished at 7.

Course was in good shape. Actually surprised by that considering the high traffic. Pace of play was a bit too slow but I played on a Saturday afternoon so that to be expected. The course was fun with different looks at a lot of holes. Would have to have played the course a few times to go out and should a great score. I'm glad I had the experience of playing the track. If I'm in the area and there is a deal I'll be back
