Good course

Considering all the rain we had lately this course was in pretty good condition. Pace of play was decent.

A chilly but sunny day

Course was moderately busy. Pace of play was good. It was cart path only so I did get in a good bit of walking, Staff was very friendly!! Greens were in good shape considering time of year., Biggest disappointment is the cart path. It really needs repair.

It's a good course but it's overpriced

Unfortunately the greens fees have gone up substantially over the past few years. As a non-member I look elsewhere for a better price fee.

Staff needs customer appreciation training

I played this course many times in the past and never had an issue with front desk but recently I have encountered a check in that was less than pleasant. Sure I'm using online vouchers and different ways of playing the course that should not be an issue or even brought up when I check in. the
The course decides when and where to place discounts out there and then the consumer decides whether or not to purchase them. this is a recent development for the course they used to have very nice guys running the desk but the current weekend help there is ruining a lot of golfers day not just mine I'm sure.

Nice course, small greens

The overall layout of the course was good. Staff and amenities were good. The greens are quite small with quite a bit of elevation changes on the greens. Fun but challenging. Overall I had a nice time.

Fairways do not exist

This is the course I lose most balls at because even if you hit the ball perfectly straight, you might not be able to find it. The reason is that there is basically no fairway at all. It is all rough and overgrown.

To be desired

For the most part this is a fair golf course; I’ve been playing it for a few years now; it has changed quite a bit in the last three years, personnel have come and gone.. some should have stayed away . The amenities are adequate. The ladies that work behind the counter in the lounge area are excellent with great personalities.
The negatives are noticeable. The membership seems to feel entitled and there is no ranger out on the course. So if you want to have a decent pace of play there’s no one to do anything about it and some of the established members feel entitled to take three and four putts on a green with three or four different balls while they’re aware that you’re waiting at a T box...
And not all; but about 90% of the people that work behind the counter have the personalities of a sheet of drywall. Other than that it’s an OK place...

Nice course. Very short. Greens were very sandy but putted reasonably well.

Good value for the money. I would play it again.

A Gem for the Area

The management has worked hard getting the course in excellent condition, Greens are in great shape if a bit fast with all the slope they have. Good job.

Decent value for the price. 5 hour round with no rangers to be seen. Waited 2-3 mins on every tee box. Some fairways needed some attention due to broadleaf infestation.. Greens were pretty nice with a bit of undulation.

Good course, horrid pace

Played a round on a Saturday morning and was told by the starter he was going to get us out ahead of the mens league for pace of play. Really appreciated, but the pace was horrid with a group with two holes clear, that refused to let multiple foursomes that had backed up behind them play through. Not a marshal in sight. Course was in good condition and otherwise had a good round!

What a nice surprise!

For some reason, I had low expectations when I arrived. But I was pleasantly surprised with the course conditions, including the greens. We played as a twosome and never waited to hit a shot. Just a fun day of golf.
