Not a bad course layout, but very unfair for first time players. Too many blind shots and trouble not visible from tee. No GPS or picture of hole layout on scorecard either.

Course is in a low area and wet. No rain in over a week and still wet. Cart path only. Tees were in poor condition, many fairways had dead black spots and were not mowed lately. Greens were in good condition and firm. Would not rush back to play again.

Considering we played on a Hot Deal it was worth the money we paid. Nice layout and Course was in decent ahape but unfortunately had alot of standing water all over. So it was cart Path Only which really ruined the day. Fairways were wet in spots so it was the right decision. Greens were really slow but not in bad shape. Would give it a try again once it dried out a little.

I like the layout and people. My concern was it was hot and humid. Not water coolers until the 13th hole. In addition, several bunkers had at least 6 inches of water in them. I felt they should have been drained. Overall for the price $50, I felt it was fair.

When I arrived the staff could not have been more friendly. I booked as a single and showed up an hour before my tee time. When I checked in with the started he gave me a cart to get my bag out of the car and joined up with another single right away. The course is tight, but if you hit the shots you are trying to hit you can have a great time. I thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of playing there. We had a ton of rain the night before, but I can't wait to go back when it is dry. For the value this course can't be beat. I'm a single digit handicap and plan to play there many more times when I'm in the area for sure. PS - The pace of play was amazing. As a twosome we played in 3.25 hours on a Saturday!!!!

The course itself was in decent shape, especially considering the GolfNow HotDeals price. Played from Blue and there were several challenging holes that probably were the reason for the relatively high slope (133). Would consider playing there again, especially if we could get a similar price deal. The problem was the amenities. Despite being assured twice that the beverage cart would be out all day and that the Grill at the turn was open, we saw the beverage cart satisfactorily on the front nine, but the grill was locked shut at the turn (which we were counting on for beverages and a bite of lunch) and we never saw the beverage cart again. We did not encounter any chilled water coolers until late in the front nine and once again in the back nine. There were a couple of beverage vending machines, but the one we tried was not working. And this was early afternoon in August. Lesson learned - enjoy the course, especially if you can get a good deal, but DO NOT count on getting any food or drink on the course. Staff friendliness was mixed. The Pro Shop guy was friendly as was the starter, but the elder gentleman at the cart return was rude and unfriendly.

Course was in good shape and was a great valve compared to the others that I played during my stay. Greens were a little slow, but expected during the hot August weather. I recommend this course.

We purchased through golf now and after playing 9 holes it was lightning so they came to get us obviously cause course had to close. While returning back they said they couldn't offer us a rain check even though we paid at the course. Very dissappointing because we paid for 18 and were only able to golf 9 holes. No compensation what so ever. The girl in the restaurant was super friendly though that was the only plus. They knew it was going to rain and should have stated that first I would have cancelled! VERY POOR CUSTOMER SERVICE! WON'T GO BACK

Course was nice and relatively in decent shape. Read reviews from last fall and had low expectations, but was pleasantly surprised. Played "cart path" only round which extended the play time, but not by much. Holes weren't that wide and walking to ball was manageable. Will play here again.
