Very bad shape for the $$$

This course is not worth the $75 price tag. The greens are beat up, tee boxes are in bad shape, fairways are chewed up. I get the price tag because of its location, but that’s all it has going for it.

Below Average At Best

Poor experience overall. Right away I was basically talked down to by the clubhouse staff as I was paying because my golf shirt didn’t have a “proper collar” (I was wearing a blade collar shirt that Tiger and other pros wear nowadays). Told them it was in fact a golf shirt and they still put up a stink over it. This is a muni course btw! Course conditions were awful for the $76 price. 2 greens were basically dirt/sand and the fairways were chopped up on almost every hole. Will not be going back.

Poor

Gave it a 2nd chance... 1st time were held bc 2 people we didn't know were late. So we paid full rate for twilight start time. If they're late make them miss their tee time, not us... today there was a delay... something about a group from an hour earlier... so starter lets out two people at 1:40, then 2 foursomes. I was an individual and would have asked but starter didnt have communication with clubhouse... someone brought him a radio as we all sat there and waited... 5 hr round bc they kept cart path only all day... when i asked a marshall... he said the manager was home... it was 80 degrees with a hard soil... mark the course and allow carts to move around, its 7000 yds and course conditions change... wasted my promos on this course...

Harassing Rangers

As soon as we arrived to the course, the ranger, John was harassing us off the start. We just placed our bags in the carts and he pulled up to us questioning us multiple times if we had alcohol in our cooler bags (it was 90 degrees out). After telling him no on multiple occasions he said if “I catch you with any, you’ll never play a f’n county course again”. Nice little welcome to Soldier Hill.

Secondly, The other cart in my group drove in the parking lot to put his partners clubs on the cart. John in his cart was following and yelling that He can’t bring the cart in the lot. “Rules are rules” saying we should know the handbook (okay?).

As we were heading towards the 1st tee box, a group that finished 18 came up to us and warned us about that ranger saying he was harassing them their entire round.

At the tee box, even the starter warned us about John saying John used to be a Gold glove boxer. We took it as an indication that he’s gotta few screws loose. He Told us to be careful because John will kick anyone off. A few moments later, John pulled up to the starter and was telling him how he saw a group on the back 9 with red solo cups. John said he was gonna “get them” and kick them off the course (that’s the clean version).

A few other 4somes throughout our round also pointed out this belligerent ranger. We further witnessed a 2some drive on the fairway (it was cart path only). John drove out in his cart cursing asking if they think this is a joke. John took the cart keys out of the 2somes cart and drove off yelling for them to walk. (Not a great way to handle a situation. Maybe a simple reminder about the cart path or politely ask to drive the cart back to the path). Just left the cart in the middle of the fairway. Little obstruction for the group behind.

Besides this ranger, I just want to point out that the county did a great job cleaning up and making the course look nice since they bought it a few years back.

But if you want to enjoy a round of golf with your friends, and not feel stressed out by rangers, I would not recommend playing here.

My group will probably wait until next year to give the course another shot, in hopes that ranger will not be there.

Place is a joke

Tee off around 1:50.
I am a 15 handicap and Im 2 over through 6
Feeling great.
It starts to drizzle and a loud horn goes off. As golfers from outside there “county” (apparently the only term the people who run this place know) we drive back to the clubhouse. I figure we will wait it out or get a raincheck.
This obnoxious ranger comes over and immediately informs us that there is no rain checks and blames “county Rules”
We then decide to wait out the rain. It then completely stops raining, sun is out and the guy wont let us back out. There are several groups out riding in carts playing but this clown wont let us out as a punishment for coming in on the first horn. People are teeing off 20 feet away and he wont let us go back. No rain check, cant play, and by now its gorgeous out.
Finally in what we assumed was the clown being a normal human being, he tells us that its cart path only and literally waves us out.
We go back to the 6th hole and suddenly he is chasing us down waving his hands telling us he didn’t tell us to go out
It was like the Twilight zone.
I then call the clubhouse and ask to speak to whoever is in charge who wasn't any more helpful.
So $50 for 5 holes. No raincheck and we weren’t allowed to play through the rain.
This place is run like crap. Would never go back to this place. There are alot of other courses in the area that are run by people with common sense
