This course is in good shape, it always provides a challenge, it is easy access and worth the drive.

It was recently aerated, plan accordingly, fairways are in great shape, they do maintenance on regular basis to keep it up. Great value.

Being the first time I played this course, I could immediately tell the course is trying to improve itself. A few greens are being modernized which is a pleasant thing to see. Pretty short course but challenging at times, a few memorable holes. Golf carts need help. No windshields. Decent practice facility.

Played here with the Safari Club on a day with light rain thanks to Hurricane Jose. Even so, the course was in great condition. Would like to see the ladies tees on a few holes placed farther forward as I felt some of the holes were a bit too long. Will definitely return on a dry day!

Don't let the name or the appearance of the parking lot located next to the speedway fool you. This track and I mean the Golf course not the Racetrack, is one of the best around. Well laid out with very interesting holes, which are maintained to the highest standards. The Club Pro and his staff make sure your experience here will be one to remember. The 19th hole was very good too. Go play my Friends!

Played with the Safari Club ,it was a warm wet day the course held very good to the wet conditions.

The overall conditions were great the greens are very large not very flat and very fast but trure to putt on .

Nice layout the tee boxes could be larger and more level.

The resturant was very good ,fast service quality food at a fair price.

This is a go to for every level player.

Tee time at 1:48pm. First out after a shotgun outing. Flew around course as no one in from of us. The only problem was the nats! Middle of September, hot and late afternoon is not the time to play this course. Spraying for the nats seemed to draw more.

Played on Labor Day and checked in for my first time ever at this course. Surprised to find out that a $10 lunch voucher was included for every player. The course design is open, and challenging at times, but not too bad for the novice like myself. Maintained very well, would only suggest putting divot mix on the carts so that the big chunks of people slamming irons down the fairways didn't leave as many stripes. Will definitely come back and play here again.

We had great weather, teamed up with 2 slow players, let a twosome go by, next hole we had another twosome waiting behind, we were the only 4some. No ranger, we had to split up so we could get ahead a little, still a slow day. The course is in good shape, some fairways are drying out, the greens are a bit slow but are in great shape.
