Great course for slightly higher handicappers. Nice to be able to get a couple of pars instead of struggling to get a bogie on some other local courses. Course was in good condition for serious dry and hot weather conditions. Plan on playing this course many times again.

The course was in good shape a couple years ago but it has been going downhill. The greens are diseased with ball marks, fairways are good but the rough is riddled with dirt patches with rocks

Short course with some water in play. Fairways were nice, greens were ok, rough was barren along the fairways and deep around the greens. All in all a nice day. Good pace of play and friendly staff. I would play there again if I ever get back to the area.

The course has greened up nicely after he recent rains, the greens were smooth with few defects. However the pace of play was very slow. This is mainly due to players walking the course, especially the foursomes. Being a Monday this could have been a factor. Next time I'll play another day of the week .

The greens are unplayable. Normally I enjoy playing this course, but it is in such poor shape that I will not play there again. There was a disclaimer about greens condition, but it was not nearly as descriptive as it should have been. The course should be closed until the repairs are completed.

Nice layout. Poor green conditions and sparse fairways. Good for a quick round to swing clubs but not for a serious game.

I have been a few times and enjoyed it. Went on Thursday 4/19 and was backed up 3 sets of players at 1st Tee. Nobody was playing back nine. I had to wait around 10 minutes per swing. Ended up leaving after playing the third hole without asking for a rain check. My fault for 5:10pm tee time. Way too busy. Nobody was playing back nine and I asked if I should tee off from there when I arrived. Chalked it up to accidental planning on courses part. I will for sure go back but not on a Thursday afternoon.

While this course has a lot of promise, it failed to deliver in a lot of areas. The Good - The staff was extremely nice and welcoming. The BAD - The back nine needs to be blown up on a few holes, most notably # 14, # 16, and # 17. We played the blue tees, which are the back tees. #14 your drive needs to be hit so far right to keep it in play - and to the right is a hazard. If you hit the middle of the fairway - which my ball did, I ended up about 3 feet from the OB on the left side. # 16 the fairway slopes from right to left. If you hit too far left - you are in the hazard. Because you see this from the tee box - the tendency is to hit to the right. Trees limbs are hanging over the right side and don't allow an escape. I hit my tee shot on the right side, and I had to hit a low shot to the middle of the fairway, which just kept running to the left and in the hazard. # 17 - if you miss hit your drive by just a few yards, you can be in deep, deep trouble. You can lay back - but since it is a long par 4, about 422 yards, you end up with a long second shot of about 220 yards.
