Great Walking Course

Nice smaller course- very flat and short-great for walking. A lot of criss cross fairways. Greens were nice, but longer grass. Great price and would definitely play again. Thanks

Decent Short Course

This course is a great way to improve your short and mid-range game. There are four par-4 holes and five par-3's.

Don't use golf now for this place.

It is cheaper to just go there and pay than when you use the app. They do not do tee times so I don't understand why they are even on the app. Other than that it is a nice SMALL course.

I will not be going back

Good course for beginners who do not have a fine taste when it comes to golf courses. However, I play about 3-4 times a week and this has been my worst experience golfing so far this year. The greens are MISERABLY slow which makes it nearly impossible to sink a putt over 12 feet. I couldn’t tell the difference between the tee box and the rough, half the course is mud with no grass. The layout of the course is probably the worst layout I have ever seen, there are 4 holes that share 2 tee boxes, and hole 7 and 9 intersect each other and make an ‘X’ causing 2 groups to be playing basically the same hole at the same time. Once I got to hole 5 I didn’t even wanna keep playing and I ended up not even finishing the 9th hole because it is hard to have a good time while playing this course.

Great time!

The course was well kept! Fun to play and was not a bad walk. I was not allowed to rent a walking cart after 5 but that did not hurt. The price of beverages was also very reasonable. I spent $3 on a beer and water. It was also a great deal to play. I will definitely be going back!

A Unique Challenge...Hidden Gem.

If you want immaculate conditions....a perfectly manicured course...and 4 star amenities...move on. You're not going to like this place. If you want a laid back, fun, challenging and unique experience, that attracts friendly, down to earth people, then this is the spot. The course is a par 31. The holes that stand-out to me are #5 (212 yards) & #6 (198 yards), 2 extremely challenging par 3's. My strategy on #5 & #6 is to be extremely conservative, take a couple Bogey 4's, and hope to get those back with on #1, a 255 yard par 4 & #8, a 268 yard par 4. #2 is a fun little 98 yard par 3 with a slightly elevated tee. You hit over a gully that you cross via a wooden bridge. People generally like this hole, but it's been giving me fits this year! #3 is a 168 yard par 3 with a blind tee shot to a green that slopes back to front, and that lays hidden just behind a large Native American Burial Mound. On top of said mound is the "Bush From H€ll" that swallows up any ball that touches it. It's a tough but fair hole. The green holds well, but anything short or long, will make for an extremely tough up and down. #7 & 9 are the longest holes on the course. #7 plays at 377 yards and #9 is right at 400 yards. Both require a well placed tee shot, with out of bounds on the right and several strategically placed trees . I really like these 2 holes because there are several ways to play them, depending on risk/reward and the strong and weak parts of your game. #9 requires distance control, as it sits tucked into the south east corner of the course, between out of bounds to the right and trees to the left.
All and all I love this course. It's great for Beginners, yet offers a good challenge for even the best Players. It's a unique experience and they've great cheeseburgers and cold beer.
