It was difficult to locate grass, in the fairways, or around the greens. Greens were shaggy and very slow! Takes a hammer to put a tee in the ground on all the tee boxes. Slow play. The club house was probably built in the 1920"s, and smelled of decades of water damage. Under no circumstances would I ever consider playing this cow pasture again! We payed for 18, and left after 9! Extremely disappointing!

Course is terrible & dangerous. U can get hit from other golfers on about any hole from players else where on the course.

course is worse than it use to be years ago & even more dangerous the way they have reajusted holes.

The course is not what I'd expect at all. The fairways are pretty narrow and the greens are fairly small. There are a lot of hills and elevation changes. The course is short on the front nine, par 34. There are only two sets of tees, red and white. However, this course is pretty open when you miss shots. It's a great course to start learning and really dial in your irons. The greens were slow but in great shape. The layout of the clubhouse is a bit strange, but the staff is very friendly and helpful. I would definitely play this course again.

The greens and fairways were smooth and well maintained. Had some trouble finding the tee-box for hole 17. Made me think the holes were renumbered at some point. The clubhouse is old and in need of a serious renovation. However, the value for the money was great. We got to the course 45 minutes early and were able to play right away. There were some hills, so walking all 18 holes would be a challenge.

The course maintenance was lacking. Long grass on the fairways. The greens were in really rough shape. Bumpy, long grass and just overall not well taken care of.

There were a few times where my partner or myself would hit just off the fairway and not be able to find the ball because it was so gnarled and long. I understand that rough is supposed to be a part of the course, but it seemed a bit excessive.

Hole layout was another issue for me. Share tee boxes for multiple holes. No way to get to some tee boxes without crossing in front of a different teebox or green. Directions not well laid out on the more confusing locations. To get to the 17th teebox from the 16th green you need to cross directly behind another green and another hole's teebox as well.

For the money it sufficed. Half the greens are in bad shape. At least they put the pin placement where it was okay. Course has lots of irrigation ditches crossing the fairways. Almost one per hole. Tees and greens were very close to each other and were confusing to say the least. 7th hole and 17th hole greens were side by side. I played the wrong green by mistake. One tee hosted to two holes. But a good place to improve your game and become a well rounded gopher/golfer.

No one was at the counter to receive us, had to find them. They required every golfer in our party of 4 to sigh in, saying that they would like to see what everyone looked like? Did not allow us to take the golf carts into the parking lot or near our cars although we seen others in the lot.
