Great day to play golf course was in excellent condition. Staff was very friendly as usual sat and talked to the starter for about 10 minutes before it was our turn to t off what a very nice man. This is one of the reasons I keep going back. Keep up the great work and your focus towards being friendly.

Course was in good condition for early May. Greens rolled nice, a little slow. Fairways were a little on the high side. I am guessing with the rain, it was hard to get out and cut.

Enjoyed a beer pre-round, and some food post-round. They have some of the best food at a public golf course in the area. Staff is always friendly!

Biggest con about this course is the pace of play. For a course that is not very long, it took 5 hours to play 18 holes. A lot of people seem to play 9 (off the front), then it opens up on the tougher back 9. I think the layout has a lot to do with this. It always helps the wait when the group behind you isn't playing fast.

Enjoy the golf course although pace of Play major issue. Probably due to fact the course is sending golfers out 6 to 7 minutes after previous tee time. Not enough time between tee times backing up the course. Course was gracious in giving me rain check for back nine due to pace of Play. Enjoy the golf course. Always in great shape. Tee boxes were pretty hard but probably due to hot dry weather of late.

Course could be more challenging if traps were present. There are a few holes on the back nine the lay out makes you think twice about tee shot placement and club selection. (#10, #14 ) Nice mix of dog lefts and rights. Depending on flag placement the greens will challenge your putting skills. Today the greens were a bit slow. For me the back nine was tougher than the front nine. Club house has a nice menu and the food is pretty good.

Course was in very good condition the greens were still soft enough that the Ball would stick. The staff was very friendly from the clubhouse to the starter. Front 9 was a little slow pace of play even though we had a 4 some and there was 2 twosomes in front of us the foursome in front of those 2 groups was really slow. It was great that they only played 9 and the back played really smooth. Love the course and the people who run it keep up the friendly atmosphere

This was my first time playing this course as I don't live in the area. Overall the course was in good shape and I was impressed that the greens were soft. I chose this course even after reading the reviews commenting about the pace of play problems. A mistake! I played in a two-some behind another two-some. They played excruciatingly slow. While maybe not their fault, it was a situation that could have been remedied by the Ranger. Unfortunately, he was nowhere to be found (I think he was also the starter/greeter). The two-some refused to let faster players through and absent the ranger, there was nothing that could be done. Needless to say it backed up the course. There are enough other courses of a similar nature in the area that despite the overall friendliness of the other staff here, choosing this course is not the best option unless you are willing to accept this problem.

Golf course was a decent track, for a decent price, that was in in relatively good shape. No complaints and staff friendly. However, rather basic and simple layout was not exciting enough to warrant a five star rating. Back nine seemed more of a challenge than the front. Will return.

Played the course form the third time in the last 2 years. Have always enjoyed it as it is quite playable with generous fairways. The senior tees are a little shorter than normal but some of the water in front of the greens still makes the approach shot a challenge.

It's become one of my favorite places to play in the area.

Nice course. Lots of different looking holes you have too manage the course. My only complaint is they book tee times too tight you have too wait on at least 14 of 18 holes so if you book you will be waiting on almost every hole
