Alright, nothing mind-blowing
This is a cool course, and it’s in pretty good condition (2-3 greens with grass-less edges, and a couple of fairways with nearly bare patches, overall good though)
For being one of the most expensive course in area, I’m not sure I’d say it’s worth the price to regularly play though. You can find plenty courses in just as good of shape for $30-$40 less at primetime rates.
They also charge you to hit range balls on weekend mornings, which seems like a rather petty money grab after dropping $80 to play
Tough course to review
This is a bit of tough review for me because of some conflicting reasonings.
To start, if all you’re worried about is playing a nice course in great condition (apart from 2-3 greens with some rough/grass-less edges, but didn’t really affect play) then you will enjoy this track.
My reasoning for three stars instead of four apart from the few rough green edges may be a bit petty, but I struggle to justify being the most expensive course within a pretty wide area (or close to it) and still charging $6 to hit range balls in prime season on a weekend.
It’s not an issue of money as if you’re paying $78 to play a round of golf you can certainly afford another $6 to hit range balls, it’s more the principle of an already really expensive course (relative to the immediate area, of course) Trying to squeeze patrons out of a bit of extra money
East’s Extra Enjoyable
We really have a great time out there, and literally crave this course after each round, it keeps you wanting more, we’ve played it from all the tee locations, be back soon!
Overall disappointed with the course conditions! Went in with high expectations that definitely were not met. With being closed down for several weeks, the course should have been in great shape. Having been in the golf industry for a while, course overall lacks effort! Tees and fairways were decent, but greens and green surrounds were not good at all! Greens are slow, sanded, grainy and difficult to have any feel on with the inconsistency. Other courses in the area, also Bermuda greens, are rolling at a much higher quality! Definitely not worth the rate they are charging
East Vs West
Had A Great Experience As Usual, Thinking I Like West Course Smidgen Better. Our Carts Battery Seemed Low By 18th Hole but No Big Deal. Really Enjoyed My Range Warm Up Great Value. Love The Pyramid Stacks of Practice Balls, Towels, & Tee’s Offered. We’ll Be Back For The West Experience Next Round!

Greens had been punched and top dressed, Speed was moderate and smooth if not near the edges of green.
Tee boxes and fairways were longer than normal requiring longer tees for driver and less roll out on drives.
Rough was penal (3" +) and no first cut. Width of fairways were fair.
Tee boxes, fairways and green collars all show signs of alien grasses.
I've played this course several times over the years and this was the worst shape I've seen it. It still nicer than most public courses, but not worth the normal rack rate.
The Cardinal and Bryan Park Champions are in better shape and much cheaper to play.
waste of time and money
First it was poorly organized. There was a small outing, with shot gun all over the course. The last group, of which we had to play behind was on a 5 1/2 pace. They were playing a scramble. It was awful. Waiting on every hole. There was almost 3 hole open and starters did nothing. While waiting in the fairway you got to view the deporable condition. Fairways and green surrounds burnt out. Bare lyes everywhere. They offered me free drinks, I gave them back their passes and rather have my money back. It was a day of golf with my 20 year old son. A day I can never get back. What a waste
On staff members were very accommodating. However the conditions were awful. Tee boxes look like a mutiny, conditions around the greens or awful. there were weeds growing in the middle of the Fairway.
I will avoid it until they got the conditions up to what is there for the price they charge. What made it even worse is there was a mini outing out in front of all group. We were at a pace to play 5 1/2 round. Turned what should have been a beautiful day with my son, turned out to be a miserable afternoon.
Great course...but not worth the price
Great layout. Definetely play the East course if you're wondering between East or West. Beautiful scenery. Challenging mounds and green undulations prevent you from scoring well. Greens are immaculate shape. Cart path and cart ride are top notch. Staff is best I've encountered in years.
Fairways...atrocious. They're trying...sod everywhere...but absolutely horrible "fairways". Hitting from hard pan dirt nearly every shot.
Worth playing just for scenery...absolutely not worth the "hot deal" of $60. This is a $40 course at current conditions. Don't pay this high price until the get the fairways back to what it was years ago.
Great course, even better when the fairways are on form
Very nice course, well organized and easy to navigate for a first timer. Fairways were still coming in, and a little rough approaching a few greens, but overall I would recommend this course.
Not what I signed up for.
When leaving the golf shop, I was directed to the West course. Not being familiar with either course it wasn’t until I checked my reservation I realized I booked the East course. Once I began to turn the cart around the starter then told us the East course was closed. Playing the West course vs driving an hour home my decision was obvious. Being that one course was closed all tee times were backed up and to top it off the mid way house was closed and zero water or beverage cart on course.
Don’t play after it rains.
Good course, fun layout. It had just rained the night before so my feet and pants were soaked on the first hole. Great amenities and overall facilities, the course just does not drain well.
Great greens, fun layout
Greens were hard and perfect to roll on. I know it’s been a very wet early season and there was some rain Friday evening but the course was very wet. I’m from out of town playing with a local and he said he was surprised it was that wet. Still, course was in good condition and like I said, greens were awesome.
