I like the layout of the course, some very interesting holes. However, the greens were in terrible shape. They had recently been airified, but even without that there were many greens that had large spots with out grass. The tee-boxes hadn't beeen mowed in quite a while and on many of them it was difficult to find a level spot.

The course is very playable for all skill levels. We played as a twosome in about 3 hours. The fairways were playable under winter rule conditions. The greens were extremely fast due to dry dormant conditions. I would play here again and recommend it. They are working to restore this course and make it more playable.

It’s end of January so expectations were low but for $15, it was great. Nice layout and challenging from the back tees. Greens were bumpy and tee-boxes a mess on some holes but overall well worth the drive.

The staff is always friendly and welcoming. The greens are quick and fairways are in great shape this course has come a long way in a short period of time! Some othe tee boxes could use some attention but this course is definitely headed in the right direction, I can tell a huge difference in course conditions in the last 6 months. Front 9 is shorter but difficult to score on back 9 is longer but easier to make birdies IMO.

It started as soon as we walked in the door, we were greeted by Stacey and her wonderful personality. You can see in the shape of the course, they are definitely working really hard to improve it. Yes there's alot more that needs to be done,but they are definitely headed in the right direction. Keep it going, I would definitely recommend this course if you want to have great day of golf.

It was a great day weather wise and was pleasantly surprised by the condition of the course and greens after reading some of the other more harsh reviews. the greens were healthy and although not lightning quick they rolled true. The rough was rough and the fairways were in good shape. Quite a few of the tee boxes could use some attention due to shade issues but for what I paid, I will definitely be going back. I walked the front and rode the back only because I was tight on time. The back is longer and more challenging than the front but it is a nice layout. I will definitely be making the drive out there again. Oh, and Hannah in the golf shop was very courteous, knowledgable and professional.
